  1. I sat in 3 different gas 2500 at the dealer that made the same noise. 2 others didn’t make the noise. GM seems either clueless on how to fix or just unwilling to repair something that’s apparently just an annoyance. so. ... I bought a tiny Flowmaster muffler and now I barely hear it. Seriously, that’s what I did. I’m tired of wasting time on it, I really like the truck otherwise.
  2. You pay more up front for that Duramax. It’s pretty much a wash at trade in time.
  3. No! Lol I towed my 37’ camper the day after I got mine.
  4. I did this for my train horn install (2500) I had the switch bank completely out. Mine come out in sections of 3. It looks like the board extends into the fake switch area and there is a button on there. I didn’t dig any further because my plan was to drill them for my switches. I installed my switches here instead...
  5. I did connect it to the passenger side fusebox- one of the exposed lugs in the center. It's switched and it's retained power so perfect for the CB. Need to fuse the lead!
  6. The HD had the same rear seat and floor as the 1500 so...
  7. Hey there, If anyone is interested in a more compact "Train Horn" kit that can all fit under the hood pretty easily, this one works. I was able to install the whole shebang into the secondary battery location. It's the Vixen Model # VXO8805/3118. I purchased on Amazon. The biggest difference between this kit and most is the tank is only 1/2 gallon in size. You still get about 4 seconds or so, which is plenty! The compressor can recover a completely empty tank in 45 seconds. While this doesn't sound exactly like a train, it's plenty deep and loud. It's not gonna blow your neighbor's windows out, but it is quite a bit louder than the factory horns. The kit comes with everything you need, except a relay (you really should use one to switch the compressor). I also installed some switches in the dash. One powers the compressor which in turn arms the horn button. If anyone wants any more details let me know. Here are the pics!

  8. I just used a switch I had in the electric project box... I keep the tonneau cover on so it's fairly protected. I always coat my connections with dielectric grease and marine heatshrink so everything else is solid.
  9. I wired mine in with a switch and 12v+ in the bed, No issues upstream like you describe. I also wired in a programmable timer I found on Amazon so If I accidentally leave the bed lights on, it'll shut em off after 5 minutes. If you flick the switch off then on again it resets the timer. Works great. Here's a link to the timer- amazing flexible. You program it on your bench and then install... 10 Amp Mini Timer Time Delay Relay .2 Sec to 400 days 6V 12V 18V.

  10. Thanks! It's just a Firestik Firering CB mount. I drilled a hole to match like you posted, but I used a stainless fender washer underneath to spread the load better.
  11. I bought black vinyl stickers off Amazon when I had my 1500. I was shocked, but they held up great.
  12. Hey there- This screen just started popping up over and over and over. No matter what button I select it keeps coming back. How the hell do I make it go away? Forever. It’s driving me nuts. Thanks
  13. Any progress on this part? I would love to see how you accesses the inside. thanks!
