Out of all those suggestions, wax would be my first attempt. Lol. I actually almost suggested wax, but I’ve never tried to use it as a frost/ice prevention. I just knew it would be harmless since I tend to use it during summer to make bugs easier to clean off.
Your link didn’t work for me for whatever reason. Says it’s gone or I don’t have permission. I really like the look of the Banks CAI too. Someone on here said the one for a 2017 will fit. But, I’d rather know from the manufacturer.
Has anyone upgraded their HID bulbs? I’m happy with the light they cast out, but disappointed with the color tone. They seem like they’re around 4,000-4,200K and to match the LED fogs they should be around 5,000-5,500K. I just prefer a whiter light than OEM. I have no interest in messing with the actual projector and upgrading that with something like Morimoto. Also has anyone used these tail lights yet? I don’t even see a brand on there. I just like that they’re cheaper than the Axial brand. https://www.americantrucks.com/led-tail-lights-smoked-1418-silverado-1500-w-o-factory-led-tail-lights.html
My 2018 had a whacky moment after the polar vortex in Illinois as well. Truck started but threw about 8 error codes and said to service battery charging system. Voltmeter read about 10 and steadily dipped. Truck died on me about 8 times. But after a couple minutes it would start(a few times it wouldn’t do anything or the starter would click). Then die. Repeat. Then eventually it started and read 14-15 volts. It had a check engine light for a couple days and that’s went away and has been fine since. I personally think my battery was partially froze or something since it sits outside currently. Ironically, my 2017 Malibu had zero issues. Last winter it had a couple of moments too where it wouldn’t give me full engine power. Fwiw, my truck is a 2018 w/ e-Assist.
Hah. True. For the reverse lights I got a set from American Trucks. Axial brand 210 lumen. They’re pricey, but I didn’t want to mess with resistors and such. They have a 410 lumen kit, but $90 is really steep for backup lights. https://www.americantrucks.com/axial-210-lumen-backup-light-led-conversion-kit-921-14117.html For the license plate lights, I had some of these left over from converting some bulbs over in my Malibu. These do need to be inserted the right way or they don’t work. But, they look more “modern” than the yellowish incandescent bulbs.

Do elaborate. What’s your truck set up? 6 or 8 speed? Tell me the pros and cons. I’ve been tossing around this idea for a while. The more I drive my truck, the more things I nitpick about the way it drives. Throttle lag, weird shifts in V4 mode with the 8 speed, etc.
