  1. Yeah I’ve kind of settled on a temporary fix sort of. I have some high temp flat paint that I’ve been using on the flaked off parts and it seems to stay pretty well. And it’s also a flat finish so it blends pretty well. I have to travel a lot for work (without the truck) so I haven’t been able to think about or do a ‘full scale real fix’ for it but this sort of hides it well enuff for now. Any time I see continued flaking (which I have...) I go and hit the new spots with that paint. Not the best solution but it hides the problem until I can really look at it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Sent from my
  2. Every mod I’ve done I’m like “no hun, don’t worry, this one will be totally the last one.” Then I see another post on this thread... [emoji1787][emoji389][emoji389] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Haha yes, they’re also great with their anatomy tips. [emoji23][emoji23] thx Amazon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Oh now THAT looks cool. Metal cap to protect the valve. And I take it when you push the other part with the hose into it that’s what opens the valve? Thanks! I’m gonna look into these. I like that nothing is exposed when the cap is on. And that it’s metal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Yeah i would def save the stock one. I guess my concerns are more about being out somewhere like on an ATV trip and all the oil leaks out while you’re out riding for hrs cuz the valve failed or something and you’re a few miles away from anything. And god forbid you don’t notice and start the truck. Idk. Maybe I’m overthinking it. Hahhaa. But I do that with stuff like this. Just curious how durable they are. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Ok so these fumoto valves; I was toying with the idea of putting one on my ATV a couple yrs ago and I didn’t because someone mentioned the valve got all jacked up from trail riding. And wouldn’t open and then wouldn’t close, And I started thinking would I also NOT want one on my truck etc for the same reason? And thinking about salt and ice/snow in the northeast? Will these things hold up to that and not leak for years??? Looking for real opinions cuz I know alotta you guys have em and I don’t think I’ve ever polled a forum about it, and I have no personal experience. Sent from my iPhone u

  10. The sunroof actually indents above into the headliner, not below, fwiw. And I used to think the same stuff about leaks and what it. I have one now and I love it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Finally installed these 2 minor mods now that the garage heater is kickin: These from Amazon... In short, they are what I call crappleberry flavored. Significantly narrower than what’s shown on the product the page AND the ‘Sierra’ lettering doesn’t fit above the first bend in the sheet metal So they look weird to me, and I don’t expect them to last long at all, but I have another style lined up for when they fail. 2nd one was these pre-cut fog light films from Lamin-X. Now THESE, are surprisingly very good. The cut is 99% the factory shape, with a couple misses in very small spots i
  12. Hahha I submit to you that pulling the fuse is defeating the opponent, since I took away its purpose, and thusly removing the fear. [emoji1377] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Guys. This is an absolute CRAP design. Pull fuse #10 and call it a day. I pulled mine when I got the truck at the first hearing of this and it’s been fine. And the heated mirrors still work fine. I have never had a rear window defogger on any of my trucks, got a kick out of this one having it, but the variations of this problem I’ve seen in this thread are nothing I want anything to do with. That includes the ones what have been “fixed “by GM. Just like Mr. Miyagi always said: “best way avoid punch, no be there.” You can live your whole life to those words. Hahha. Pull the fuse. Sent
  14. I have a 2018 Sierra all terrain and I have not noticed this on key starts or remote starts. Do you have a link to that article? I’d like to read it just in case. Thx Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Yeah that’s the way I usually do it. Then post the link here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
