  1. Z71NY nailed it. That is exactly what mine does. You can get the darn thing to "wake up" in the morning by turning the light knob to off then back to automatic. The dealer didn't have a clue when I mentioned this to them 6 months ago, but they did suggest I purchase some mudflaps and clearcoat protectant!
  2. Red Hot, Victory Red lots of different names for the best color ever on a pickup....according to this 65 year old anyway!
  3. Go ahead, give it a try and get back to us. The bill for the additional harnesses and modules was almost $800.
  4. The Belltech spindles are ferrous and the original spindles are aluminum. Wonder if there is a difference in the ride due the greater unsprung weight? Also the Belltech part says it needs to use an 18 wheel, I'm fine with that but they say the lowering is achieved by moving the axle higher up in relation to the lower ball joint...here's where I have a question, there is only 1 inch of clearance between the lower ball joint stud and the inner surface of my 18" wheel. How do you get 2" of lowering when there is only 1" of clearance with my wheels? Do you have to cut the excess stud off? Has anyone installed a set of these Belltech spindles?
  5. I had a painted bumper on the last pickup...ran over 200k miles without rusting. Just wash the salt off, you'll be fine!
  6. Someone asked for a photo of the transition from the truck roof to the cap...Here's what it looks like on my ARE Z series. The cap is about 1/4 lower than the truck roof line. No wind noise at all.
  7. There's already limited airflow on the windshield at speeds below 70 mph.The truck's grill is so flat and blunt for what purpose? Styling? Could have taken advantage of all the dead space under hood and over the engine to lower the hoodline for a better aero package. Another example of styling overwhelming engineering!
  8. Drive it up the hill. Better get ready for some work though to fix the leak. PS ... don't rely on that spotter anymore.
  9. The hood of these trucks is so high, nothing can get up there!
  10. I complained about this to the dealer 6 months ago...no fix yet!
  11. The ARE cap "side gap" is quite regular front to back, less than 3/8 of an inch, you can't stick your fingers in anywhere along it.
  12. My truck has a GM rubber mat in the bed that is 1/2 inch thick...I took these measurements on top of that mat. At front window...40 inches. Middle of wheel wells...40.5 inches. Just in front of rear window... 40.5 inches. Hope this helps.
  13. I looked into this... bottom line is that the dash wiring harness has the plug and wires in it for the factory controller if you order it when the truck is built (Part # 84638509). If you don't there is a different dash harness (part # 84638511) that does not have the wiring for the factory controller. Your only option is to use the supplied accessory harness that supports all aftermarket trailer brake controllers.
