Thought I'd chime in here. Nothing at all special, but this is my 2017, Z71 with a 2" Southern Truck under strut leveling kit and factory wheels and tires (265's on 18's). My ultimate goal is to get some 275 70's on it, but that will have to wait until I wear out the stockers. Leevon, the look you have achieved is my ultimate goal. That looks just right to me. Well done!
Hi, Guys! I tried the search feature but could't find anything that seemed to match my issue. I am hearing a metallic clank as I start my 2017 Silverado's engine as well as when I accelerate, say from a stop sign or in traffic at low speeds. It feels like it's coming directly from under the cab of the truck. I have a double cab, V8, 5.3 Z71. 16,000 miles on it. Anyone have any thoughts? My first thought was drive shaft, but if so, why? She's still well within warranty, but I want to know how urgent this may be. Setting up an appointment with the dealer is such a pain in the a$$ as they can never get you in right away. Then you are without a vehicle for a while. But if waiting until it's convenient could cause more serious issues, I'll set something up ASAP. Thanks for any thoughts on this. Jason
lapoolboy, PM sent.
Ummmmm....that was SUPER easy! Contorting myself to get under my dash far enough to see what I was doing was the most difficult part! Thanks again for the help everyone!
Thanks for the input, guys! I'm hoping to give it a try tonight. I'll let you know how it goes.
Great stuff, guys! I really appreciate it. xMEATxHAMMERx, I see you have another diode mod in effect. I know the reverse/cargo light mod is the brown to pink. What is the other diode for? Just curious. Thanks again guys! Keep the thoughts coming if you have them!
Jason23 posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsHey, Guys! I finally received my diodes and wanted to be sure I got the right ones. Again, being electrically challenged, I was afraid to try them out before knowing for sure they were the correct ones and wouldn't cause any damage. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CDCTZ8R/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Well....job complete! I'm thrilled with the results. Time will tell on the longevity of the "3M" tape but for now the final product is better than expected!! Obviously night pics will better tell the story but here are a before and after. I tried a vid but it wouldn't load. I'll take some night pics tonight and post later. Thanks again for the advice and support. Looking forward to the next project! Maybe diode mod?? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
Thanks guys. I appreciate it. Hey Toby, looks like you and I have something in common (white 2017, Z71 ). xMEATxHAMMW|ERX, funny you should mention that, because that is THE mod I was interested in WAYYY back when I began wanting light under my tonneau. I ultimately settled for the cargo lamp only because of ease. That said, I'm a hunter and the MAIN reason I wanted light back there was so I could see loading up my gear after coming off stand after an evening hunt in the pitch black timber. To hit the fob and have light come on as I approached the truck would be CLUTCH! I'll do the search for sure, but can that mod work being that I'm drawing power from the cargo lights and on the switch? Also...how difficult/expensive is it??
Well, Color Me embarrassed! After switching the terminals, I went back in the house and set to trying to find a 12 volt tester. I sent out some text messages asking if some of my buddies had one. I ate dinner and watched a little bit of a baseball game. Then I stepped back into the garage and saw the harness plug laying on the ground below my truck! Apparently before I switched the terminals I had unplugged it. I plugged it back in hit the cargo light switch and ...you guessed it... switching the terminals was the ticket!! So great first impression I've made on these boards! [emoji15] Thank you very much for the help guys! I'll post pictures when the project is all done. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
