    2015 Chevy Silverado Texas Edition
  1. I'd pull the radio out and use a multimeter and chack that it's getting power. The plug on the driver's side of the back of radio is the power. On my 2015 the buttons went out but my screen still worked, in the pic above, the bottom ribbon cable goes to another small board for the buttons. I couldn't find anything burnt or broken on the motherboard or the ribbon cable. I was gonna go to a junk yard or buy a used set for another board and cables, but ended up trading it in before I found anything. But again, check the power supply and make sure it's getting power Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  2. The top ribbon cable is for the screen, the bottom is for the radio buttons. If the radio buttons light up and work then you know you're getting power to the motherboard and the ribbon cable could be your problem. If nothing is lighting up, not even the buttons, then you're not getting power to the unit. Use an ohm meter/volt meter to test the plug on the wiring harness Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  3. Do the radio buttons work (volume, menu, home etc.)? If you pull the radio out there's a ribbon cable that connects from the mother board that gives power and function to the screen, it could be bad Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  4. Old 2015 1500 in first pic, bone stock at the time New (to me) 2016 HC 2500 HD Duramax in second and third. Cognito leveling kit with UCAs and Bilstein 5100s all around. Toyo AT II 295/60/20 I will always be a summit white fan and all my trucks will be summit white. Super clean and sophisticated looking when detailed, turns head with how bright white it is, I love it Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  5. Did you just do a hood swap with the 17+ hoods? Or did you do the whole conversion under the hood to? I have a 2016 HC 2500 Duramax and want do the conversion Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  6. Large decrease in MPG

    On my 2015 Silverado 5.3 when I leveled it I kept a consistent 17-18mpg, mostly city driving. I had a cai and the diablosport tuner on it, when I put the Toyo open country at2's on it (33x12.5) I didn't recalibrate the speedometer right away and went down to 13-14mpg, hand calc. And when i recalibrated the speedo I was staying around 15-16mpg with consistent hand calculations Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  7. On my 15 Silverado I was using Valvoline full synthetic and changed the oil every 7500 miles, the percentage would be down to 10% around then. I was under the impression that it was based off mileage but now I'm not sure Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. I should clarify, it's just the 110 and the cigarette lighter next to it that is affected Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. There is a way to make the 110 and the cigarette lighter next to it always on if it isn't for you already. On the driver side fuse panel on the dash there's a 50 fuse (circled). I took the pic of another forum because I couldnt find the one I used when I got my radar detector. Basically there's 3 key slots but the 50 fuse is only in 2 (the 3rd is where the red wire this guy hooked up). If your outlets are always on (mine came always on when I got the truck) and you want to make it to where they are key power only, simply pull that 50 fuse and move it over one slot. Or vice versa. I did it because my radar detector was always on even with the truck off and I didn't like that, so I swapped the fuse over 1 slot and made it where it only had power with the key on. But like everyone has already said it will probably drain the battery if youre trying to charge something that size. Just wanted to share that you can make them either always on or with the key only Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  10. I had 33x12.5 on my 2015 stock 20s. Same width you're looking at. I'm not a tire expert, but I don't think the overall diameter would make a difference. You can call discount tire or any tire shop really and they could give you a 100% answer Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  11. Where are you located? I'd call a local off road shop that does lifts, they should be able to say for sure, because those Amazon reviews look conflicting and you never know if they know what they're talking about Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  12. Oh ok, I read over the part about you already having a leveling kit. I'm not sure how that would work as I just used the bilsteins for my level. The thought that goes through my head in your situation would be that you could just leave it on the stock setting since you're already 2 inches up. If I remember correctly the bilsteins travel is made for 0-2" of lift so you should be fine, maybe add some spacers on them for the extra .5"-.75". I had a .5" spacer and the truck rode great, never once hit the bump stops and I drive the occasional rough road Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  13. Believe me, I was skeptical as well, especially with the spacer on the front, but the shop that did it is an off-road shop that deals with stuff like it all the time, guy pretty much guaranteed me it wouldn't affect it and that the bilsteins would still have plenty of travel both ways. I did it partly because I like the level look on trucks but also to put 33x12.5s on there on my stock wheels. I was thoroughly impressed with it. I've since traded it in for a 2500hd and put a cognito level kit on the front with uca's and bilsteins all around on it, it's also a night and day difference. South east Houston is where I'm at and there's good roads and rough roads I travel on the way to work and like I said, I was very impressed with both trucks. That being said, to each their own and I realize people have different experiences, just thought I'd share mine. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  14. I had a 2015 that I put the bilstein 5100 all the way around in with the ride height adjustable in the front. I had the fronts on the highest setting with a .5" spacer and then changed out the stock back block (1") out with a 2" block to keep about 1/2-3/4" rake in it. I was very pleased with the ride quality. It still rode better than stock, smoothe as butter Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
