  1. I wonder if the design has changed over time. I had my cover installed at the dealer when I purchased the truck a year ago and it has never leaked. There was a recall on the tonneau earlier this year, so I took it off temporarily until resolved, the weather stripping looked superior to the Bak I had on the last truck.
  2. I currently have a vinyl wrapped box in place with a single Diamond Audio 10 and an ARC 5 channel amplifier... and I hate it. They put the amp on the passenger side and put the half length box behind the driver seat. It completely defeats the purpose of keeping partial storage. I have been eyeing this: https://mtiacoustics.com/product/mti-acoustics-enclosure-upgrade-on-enclosure-amplifier-mounting-will-not-work-for-ported-enclosures/ If you can live with a single subwoofer, MTI has a full length box with a storage cubby & integrated amp enclosure. I am going with the JL VX1000 5 channel & the JL 13TW5 sub. I currently have Focal Door speakers & Kenwood Excelon Dash Speakers.
  3. I went with these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Q6CPQK4/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_NMv-DbGBQVFDS
  4. I just had recalls performed on my Denali, one of the applied fixes bricked my Driver Assist/Lane Departure capabilities, so now they have it for the next 2 days. I would hold off on taking to the dealer for recall updates if possible.
  5. The only adjustment I made was the headlights. The cameras are slightly different when parking, but I think that is a good thing because it keeps me further away from objects.
  6. Does it have a green plug? When I wired my Putco Blade tailgate lightbar using the Putco Blade quick connect harness I plugged into a previously unused connector. https://www.putco.com/529005
  7. At first, I think I was probably overly sensitive, I remember hitting a bump and thinking the ride was stiffer, but since that single event I have been very happy with the ride quality and very much the same as the stock ride quality. Turning radius feels a little reduced and I have been hesitant to go full lock on the steering wheel, but I absolutely love it. Fuel Contra D615, 22x10, -18mm offset (Part number D61522209847) Nitto Ridge Grapplers 35x12.50R22 (Stock # 217250) Also added the K&N intake and the GM performance exhaust. My goals were that I didn't want to start cutting up the truck, I didn't want any rubbing even at full lock, and I wanted to minimize any additional road noise. I don't know how the different components contributed to my goals, how much of an impact the Denali ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) plays, but I can tell you the only additional noise I hear inside the cab is when I want to hear it, I love it. I have been cautious because I wasn't sure how cameras or sensors would be affected by the lift. The only thing that I have observed that really changed is the look angle on the front grill camera. When looking at the camera on the screen there is a very small outer edge of the image that appears elongated by the change in the camera height. Otherwise, all of the other sensors seem to be operating as expected, even the blind spot monitoring. The biggest and only real drawback has been the fuel economy. Before the lift & wheels I was a little over 19 miles per gallon. After the lift and wheels I am around 15 miles per gallon. Now I just need to somehow cover the control arms in the wheel wells and add a step to the running boards for the wife.
  8. Thanks, I appreciate it. Now the wheel well covers are too short which make the control arms stick out like a sore thumb, & my short wife needs a step stool to get in, haha.
  9. 6" BDS lift. I have been cautious because I wasn't sure how cameras or sensors would be affected by the lift.

  10. The factory boards do everything that I want right now, that's why I was thinking that I wasn't the first person to have this problem. I was hoping someone else had tried to replace just the chrome metal step bar with an aftermarket step bar with a drop step, or maybe even a bracket to lower the position of the step bar a few inches. I know I would lose the 3rd position that moves the step towards the rear wheel and bed, but I would be fine with that. If anyone is wondering, yes the factory step bar hits the rear wheel when it rotates back, but not by much. I can post a picture if anyone wants.
  11. Are you saying that I should replace my factory power running boards with aftermarket power running boards?
