I have done the slave device and AAgateway to do wireless AA in my truck. It works, but it was a huge hassle to get everything to be happy together. The deal breaker was the stuttering audio and laggy GPS. I've since purchased a 90 degree angle USB cable so I can sit my phone upright in the cupholder while plugged in.
I've been running the Raxioms for a couple of weeks now. I believe them to be the same as the Morimoto's, without the 10-year warranty (and maybe crappier built-in resistors?). The housings are made by the same folks, as you can tell by the DOT stamping showing the true manufacturer name. They're nice and bright, but the reverse LED paints a strange pattern of light in your rear view camera as it tries to "project" the LED through a small lens. I've also run into them hyperflashing. Both sides have hyperflashed/bulb out warning on me, and the fix is better resistors wired into the harness. So far I've had a decent customer service experience with the AT guys. I'm probably going to keep running them. I blacked out my 3rd brake light with vvivid vinyl clear smoke tint wrap and swapped the bulbs with LEDs to match. Sorry, the truck is filthy as we had been expecting some bad weather that never materialized.
I was wondering the same, as I'm currently using the max energy 2.0 to smooth driveability and maximize economy. The tunes and other transmission mods cause some kind of timing retard and clunks in the tranny(on my truck at least) so I have it all stock other than the AFM off below <20 mph. I tried the throttle boost on the max energy and disabled my vitesse controller, but didnt like the way it felt versus the vitesse on sp3. Pretty happy with how it drives now.
How nice of your truck to display a warning message! My vacuum pump was going out and produced the hard pedal/no power brakes, but I was not so lucky to receive warning from my truck. Try and pump your brakes a bit while you're rolling slowly or at idle and see if you can get the pedal to go hard. Warning, you wont be able to stop as easily once it goes hard. Take it in to your trusted dealer and they'll have it back to you in a day or two with a new vacuum pump. You should qualify for the extended warranty on the part and have the work done on GM's dime.
Just had mine repaired at the dealer @ 52k mi. She was there for a day and a half as they had to do some dance with GM to verify the condition and "order parts". Pump and belt were replaced. Road test immediately revealed the issue to the tech. Brake feels linear and normal now but time will tell. Cant they just hook up the scanner and pull up the booster vac instead of driving? I think they did a lunch run but I'm not mad.
I have two Britax Marathon type seats from Target and Amazon. These are relatively big and I dont think they'd be a great fit unless forward facing. Rear facing they would possibly fit, but your wife will be resting her elbows on your dash. The back of the car seat touches the passenger seat headrest, but the passenger seat is in a normal comfortable seating position with ample leg room. This crappy picture taken in the rain is of my crew cab. The seat in the center might be your best bet as you can have the back hang into the gap between the seats. If theres no anchors for the middle, could you use the inner anchors from either side seat and secure it that way? If I use the anchors only in the rear right seat like pictured, I still have to use the top strap to keep the seat secure (you can see it in the picture attached under the passenger seat rail).
Exactly. If you dont have small kids, you just dont know. A little peace and quiet is literally priceless. It aint the greatest parenting letting your kids zombie off like that, but sometimes, maintaining your sanity is important. We all have different needs for our rides and there are enough trim levels on our trucks available to prove it. It would be nice if people didnt insult an entire group of humans simply because they have different needs and desires for their things. I do get pretty angry when there is a knucklehead in front of me texting and the light turns green. But that is what loud horns are for.
Wow scary! Thats always one of my biggest fears. I dont want to be THAT guy with the submerged truck at the boat ramp. Anyway, I too recently noticed that I can create a hard pedal simply by gently pumping the brakes at idle. I had my first scare the other night backing into my driveway and the pedal went hard and I kept on rollin. Time to schedule an appointment.
If you have Bose I'd also check the AMP fuse in the same panel as the RDO, right dash. I got a black screen, no blinker noises, and no radio when that one blew. Mine blew when I was working on my Bose amp behind the rear seat and I didn't disconnect the battery properly (I wedged the negative cable on the side but it moved back enough to touch the neg terminal).
I hear you. With respect to navigation, I'd still plug it in. Wireless AA with slave and wireless CP in my wifes car shows my location delayed some. From my experience, 50 ft or so on average behind where you are now.
If it does work, it will probably lag the audio or skip it some. I've tried going wireless in my truck using a slave device plugged in the center console USB and connecting them over wifi, but the music and maps will lag/skip due to the heavier data being transmitted. I'll even have the same thing happen in my wifes car that has wireless carplay capability. Video/audio sync problems mainly there rather than skipping.
