  1. Also have a 2018 SLT All-Terrain with the 20 inch snowflakes that came with the Goodyear SRA tires. They were horrible for me in the rain and the snow and anything else that wasn't a dry paved road. Comfortable ride though so I will give them that. Anyway, I love the look of the 20 inch snowflakes, so I just slapped on some real AT tires and they made a world of difference. Right now I have the General Grabber ATX in 275/55/20 and am really happy with them. They are excellent in rain, snow, gravel, dirt and paved roads which I'm on most of the time. I also didn't get the LT size since I have no need for an LT tire.
  2. Anyone have any idea why Michelin doesn't have any 3PMSF rated tires that aren't a dedicated snow tire? Ive heard great things about the Michelin Defender LTX's, I'm just curious as to why. Maybe thats a question for another topic.
  3. Verrrrrrrrrrry nice! To me, that looks to be the perfect wheel to tire to lift ratio. Not overly or underly (is that a word?) done.
  4. I had two of my LED’s burn out a few months back in mine so I had all but two working. They had to replace the whole module under warranty. In and out of the dealership in 45 while they replaced. Of course it took 2 months to get the part in from back order.
  5. Thinking the 4600 will be the route I go when I see some in stock. I don’t plan on lifting or leveling but I occasionally hit the hunting trail, gravel road, or road to the camp site. I don’t tow anything (yet) and am a little worried about the 5100’s being a little too harsh for my 20 inch snowflakes under an empty bed. Might go up on the next set of tires to a 275/60/20 instead of the stock 275/55/20 that I have now as well. I wish I could say my truck spent more than 95% of its time off the pavement but I’d be fibbin.
  6. I do have a subscription but I use it for other forums too so it’s not a total loss at least. But I would still like to use again for GM-Trucks.
  7. Have the Tapatalk issues re-emerged for you all? Forums weren’t showing up correctly and now I can’t log in through Tapatalk. Website seems fine though. Guessing the recent forum software update killed it.
  8. Thanks all. I must of had a rock jump up and hit it or something. Not sure where the heck it came from. I noticed it yesterday as I was filling up. I thought it was a stuck flower petal on there, but NOPE!
  9. Any recommendation for touch up paint for the nerf bars on my ‘18 All Terrain?
  10. Interesting. I don't even see it on their website yet. Looks like its coming in April to dealers. Its a nice looking tire.
  11. Seeing as how I couldn’t find anyone else in this forum or anywhere else I searched that had the same issue with the ATX’s I figured I can give them another shot. And since General just swapped them out and I didn’t have to pay for installation, I had nothing to lose.
  12. I have a 2018 Sierra, but the below are for the newer model which is what I think you have. I ordered for my model year. According to the images there are a couple different versions for the 2019 Sierra depending on whether or not the pocket holes are the size of a Credit Card. May need to order the ones for the 2018 model year. https://www.amazon.com/ES-ENGINEERED-SCHILDMEIER-Pocket-Silverado/dp/B07KVKN9PZ/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=ES+ENGINEERED+BY+SCHILDMEIER&qid=1616702711&sr=8-2
  13. My ‘18 has only that one hole at the top and I swear when I ordered, somewhere on the page it said the switch was changed to a rounded switch to ease installation to use the existing hole. I might be imagining that though. Bottom line is I got it to work with a few additional supplies that were needed, along with your awesome photos and write up. Very helpful! Thank you again.
  14. Forgot to mention that I also ended up getting some rail pocket covers to go over so that the back of the switch isn't constantly exposed to the elements. I ended up wrapping the back of the switch too, to help keep it nice and dry but also hoping the covers help even further.
  15. I was a little surprised as well about the short length of the wire. Especially since they mention being able to use the existing round hole in the bed. Either way, glad you got it working and its a nice little upgrade for sure! My switch was a little tough to get in there too and did take a little encouraging with a screw driver and some light taps with a hammer all along the sides till it eventually worked itself in and snapped into place.
  16. Just to update. I took the truck to my tire shop and they thought it was odd as well. They contacted General also and after a few phone calls back and forth between installer and General, they finally settled on a 75% credit. I also wrote up my concerns to General, contacted them again and mentioned how at only 6k miles I felt a 1:1 swap would be more appropriate. My concern is that if they were doing this at 6k, what’s going to happen at 7k or 12k. Could be cosmetic, or it could be bigger than that. Bottom line, General is taking care of me and doing a total swap. I let them know that other than this issue I’ve been really happy with the ATX and that all 3 of my vehicles have Continental/General tires on them as well as my dads ‘16 Sierra Denali, so I think that helped. We spend our tire money with Continental. Should have the replacements mounted up in a couple days.
  17. Yea, exactly. And I learned something new about my truck. Now I better hightail it outta this forum till you 2019-2021 owners realize in an '18 owner squatting on your turf. Thanks again!
  18. All installed and everything works great. The twist tap connectors were key for me to make that connection to the green/red power wire. The other tap connectors I had were too small for that big ol' power wire. Thanks everyone!
  19. Curious if anyone happens to know what gauge wire that green/red power wire is on the trailer harness? That is a thick wire! Im guessing its maybe at least 10 gauge so the connectors I bought last night aren't working. The wire is just too darn thick. I have the yellow twist tap ones on order that should be here tomorrow. Hopefully those will work and then we can test to see if I got this thing installed correctly. This has become a pain in the a** project for me.
  20. Thank you for the tips! I didn’t think about pulling the tubing back. I’ll have a go at it tomorrow. I got some extra wire and some splice tap connectors from Home Depot tonight. If all goes well I’ll tape and wrap back up when I’m done. If those connectors don’t work I’ll look at the ones in the Amazon link. I also ordered a couple of bed rail covers to pop on the rail pockets so the back of the switch doesn’t get wet in the rain. I’ll probably wrap the back of the switch as well since the 3 connectors are exposed just for some extra protection. Thanks again!
  21. I’m 90% wired up but I need to extend the red wire so it can even come close to the trailer harness wires. Have to buy some tonight and see what other connection options are out there. Not sure how to tap into that red and green wire for power. There’s not much room to play with under there and I’m not entirely sure how the heck this connector is even supposed to work unless there’s a lot of wire to play with. Did you have to remove or lower your spare tire to work under there? And is this connector for tapping into the power or for extending the red wire. I can see how it would be used for extending but not for tapping into the wire.
  22. Sunlight and a flashlight seem to enhance every defect. [emoji6] Pictures look way worse zoomed in and outside than just looking at the tire with my normal eyes. Definitely some peeling there though. Checked all 4 tires and in the 6k miles I’ve put on them I’m at 13/32 on all 4. They seem to be wearing nice and even. I am wondering though if maybe 35psi is too little in the front. They are not an LT tire but they are heftier than my older Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S and certainly the OEM SRA’s that came on the truck. So maybe they do need a little more air than what GM is calling for. I aired up to 37psi this morning. I did rotate them from the front to the back before the road trip and even though I didn’t notice the peeling, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t there before rotating. Curious to hear what General has to say though.
  23. They are not LT. They are P tires, 275/55/20. It’s a fairly new size for the ATX and last I checked it’s still not on the General website. TireRack has it listed though. Weird.
  24. Thanks. Alignment was done when the tires were put on and it was all good. That was right before winter so a lot can change in that time, but these are the back tires, not the front. I did have the tires rotated right before the road trip so they WERE on the front but weren’t showing this wear before the trip after they were moved to the back. Curious to hear what Genera has to say when they get back to me.
  25. Got mine in the mail today. Instructions they provide are slim, but hopefully the photos you all took here and info can be of some help to this non electrical genius here. Meaning me!
