  1. Auto 4x4

    Heres a good video that shows how the older gm AWD/4WD transfer case worked. I assume our's are much of the same.
  2. Front end shot reminds me of the family truckster.

    Any problems about burning up the clutch packs with Auto 4WD?
  4. Quick review on on morimoto fogs and drop in HID's. I'm using hylux ballast with morimoto 5500K bulbs. The hylux ballast are top quality, my only complaint is the canbus module is kinda big and make mounting a little awkward but 3m self stick Velcro works great for install. The morimoto bulbs came with an extremely ugly brown/tan grommet. I don't know what they were thinking, I opened the box and said WTF is this. Asked retrofit source about it and they said that's how they come now. I also had an issue with one of the connectors not holding the pins securely but was able to fix that. The fog lights are nice, little hard to get them to "click" back in but nice wide output. Color wise they do look whiter than the 5500K bulbs. Output of the factory projectors with the hid bulbs is much better than stock. Best way to describe is like comparing a candle to a flash light. If you been on the fence about doing it have no fear you wont be disappointed. I do have a set of g5-r projectors waiting for me to find the time to install them so im excited to see how they do.
  5. Speaking of issues with Morimoto, over the weekend I did HID kit in the factory projectors to hold me over till I have time to swap in the g5-r projectors. I do a test run of the bulbs/ballasts on my work bench and could not get one of the bulbs to fire. After getting pissed off thinking I got a junk bulb I found the issue was with the 9006 connector that you hook to the factory light plug was junk and the pins wouldn't stay tight so they couldn't get a good connection. Luckily I had a couple connectors left over from other kits I've used and was able to fix it. Also another thing that bugged me is they are now using ugly tan grommets instead of black like they used to, extremely ugly and disappointing they stick out like a sore thumb on the back of the light. Morimoto stuff is usually pretty good its just the connectors are junk and cheap. I'm using Hylux ballats without a harness and so far no issues with codes. I also did morimoto fogs, tip you don't have to pull the trim ring off to install them. I used a plastic trim tool and was able to fit it between the light and trim piece without damaging anything. Don't go crazy but you can get enough force to pop them out.
  6. I've used morimoto parts in the past whether it be harness or their fog lights and the few problems I've had have always been at the connectors. The pins come loose and break or water has gotten in and corroded the wires on the back of the connectors. Good measure is to use dielectric grease and some rtv on the back of the connector to seal where the wires go in or do a hard solder on the wiring. On my old F150 corrosion was a big problem with their fog lights. They make good products but I feel the connectors are cheap.
  7. After having HID's on my F150 I got tired of not being able to see at night so I bit the built and ordered G5-R projector kit, hylux ballast, and morimoto fogs from LightWerkz.
  8. Has anyone done EvoX-R 2.0 projectors yet? I have a set of them that I was going to do in my f150 but I traded it in for the my Sierra so they are just sitting in a box collecting dust.
  9. I'm also currently trying to decide between these 2 tires for my Sierra. Ive ran KO2's on my old F150 for roughly 15k miles. They are amazing in the snow, quite on the highway and had great tread life. My biggest complaint was no one could get them balanced 100%. I went to a few different tire places and no matter what I always had a vibration at highway speeds. Because of that im most likely going Duratracs.
  10. Brighter LED's 2015 Sierra Denali

    Diode Dynamics have direct replacement switch back LED boards. You will have to open up the headlights for install. lightwerkz.net has them in stock. https://www.lightwerkz.net/index.php/led-lighting/diode-dynamics-modules-boards/boards/2014-2015-gmc-sierra-switchback-drl-led-modules.html
  11. Back in a GM

    I'm Jay and im back in a GM. Couple weeks ago I traded in my 2012 F150 for a 2015 GMC Sierra Black on Black SLT Z71 crew cab with 28k miles on it. The F150 wasn't a bad truck but it was only a STX so it didn't have any options. My last GM vehicle was a '08 TrailBlazer SS and I kick myself everyday for trading it on on the F150. The good news is I really like the Sierra, it reminds me a lot like the SS and its nice to be excited about a vehicle again. Not sure on what mods I want but BFG K02's will be on before winter.
