    2011 sierra 1500 5.3l SLE Trailer Package
  1. Looks like i have an aftermarket review mirror camera on my 2011 sierra 1500 SLE ext 4x4. roughly 6 months ago the camera stopped working, the screen will flash on for 1 second then disappear and the green blinking light will begin on my mirror indicating problem with the camera. I was checking the wire lines and found some splice spots for the camera, i have no knowledge of these camera splice kits and was wondering if they are something that need replaced, maybe have a loose wire or something? Does anyone have knowledge on identifying failed cameras. I find it odd that it will gi
  2. My truck is a 2011 SLE 5.3l Ext Cab 6'6" bed with trailer tow package with 105k miles. When i purchased it at 70k miles it already had a 3" lift. I am prepping to travel to North Dakota from Pennsylvania and will be towing a 5x8 enclosed trailer filled with waterfowl decoys and hunting gear. I will have 3 guys in the truck along with a dog so it will be a long ride. I have done most of the 100k mile maintenance such as tranny fluid and filter, new front and rear diff oil, new coolant, new spark plugs and wires, new belt, new air filter and some other minor things. I was hoping
  3. I have a 2011 sierra 1500 SLE with the backup camera built into the rearview mirror. Randomly one day it decided to stop working. When i put it into reverse the mirror camera will flicker once then shut off. The mirror green indicator light will then blink on and off reporting no camera signal. Has anyone had this occur or something similar? Possibly a bad camera? I Checked my fuses and all looked good. my reverse lights work. i checked the harness where the wires from the camera connect to the wires to the rest of the truck and that looked good. Any other suggestions?
  4. P0463 Fuel level Sensor. Its odd because sometimes it jumps up to normal level, then falls back down. Itll slowly go up over the drive then just drop. It will give me the Low Fuel level warning, then clear itself without needing me to hit the DIC. It will clear the CEL itself after driving after refilling.
  5. That's what i am thinking. I also noticed that when its the tank is full but its showing empty. The Gas tank light will be on (showing empty) and the flick off while still showing empty. Does the float cause CEL light to engage? I read about Sensors and grounds being the main cause. Did you fix the float? Was it hard?
  6. i have a 2011 sierra 1500 z71 ext cab. I had once noticed my fuel gauge go empty then was acting odd and ran a cleaner with next fill up and the problem went away. Now about 5-6 months later it happened again. The gauge goes from normal to empty. then will slowly come back up, or will jump back up, then can read correctly, then falls back to empty. The gauge reading empty will put CEL on. The gauge will work again while CEL is on, then it will go down, slowly come up etc... Each time i have filled up since it started recently, it was either at empty or had been going back a
  7. I purchased 2015 sierra 1500 rims and tires, i assumed that i would be able to just relearn them using the delfation technique but that did not work. I purchased a Re-learn tool from amazon and it works on my current wheels, but will not work when i put the new tires next to truck and use it. Do i need to re-learn the TPMS to the truck with the new tires from a dealer or is there something i am missing. I read about "Waking up" the tpms in the tires but i would prefer to have them working before taking the time to install them, it not work, then have to reinstall old ones.
  8. I just moved to the mountains and my drive to and from work is 30 minutes along a back road doing 50mph through deer covered woods and horse farmland. I have a 2011 GMC Sierra 1500 5.3l Z71 trailer package, with a Leveling Kit, DIabloTune, and some minor adjustments. I know that a grillguard and the bolt on grills are no good when impacting a deer and can cause more damage. But i was wondering the difference of the frame mounted heavy duty bumper and the same style bumper with the grill cover. Do the grill covers help to reduce the damage from the deer or do they generally
  9. The original plan was to do LT Headers and Full Exhaust but after watching videos on installing headers i decided my DD didnt need that type of modification haha. I enjoy doing it myself so i would want to install the exhuast but the more i read into it welding is difficult when it is still on the truck and the process to get the exhaust back in as one piece seems difficult.
  10. I just purchased the Airraid MIT intake tube for my 2011 Sierra 5.3l and noticed sounds and power immediately after replacing the restrictive and oddly designed stock intake tube. I am looking to also maximize the exhaust and am not sure if i should just replace the muffler with a better flowing one or replace with a cat-back exhaust. I am looking to save money and with just a Intake, Muffler and Diablew Tune i do not plan on having too much HP. Will the stock Exhaust pipe size be large enough? Is there any way to easily install myself or would it require welding. Atte
  11. I recently purchased a 2011 sierra 1500 5.3l Z71 with Trailer Package. I noticed some wires just behind the e-brake and wasn't sure what they would be used for? i assume i have a brake-controller for trailer as i can set trailer brake gain. Any suggestions one what this might be? Everything appears to be stock within the cab.
  12. So i plan on going with just exhaust then. What are some mufflers that flow best? Do i want a 2" dual exhuast. 2.25"? I would like to keep similar to torque/horsepower ration.
  13. I was looking for information on long tube headers. I have a 2011 1500 Sierra 5.3l Flex Fuel with the trailer package with increased intake. I have a tune i can use through Lew and cant decide on getting Long Tube headers or not and if it would be worth the hassle. My Truck is a daily driver and i use it on the highway a lot. I dont want to lose torque but would like to get some decent numbers and feel like the stock headers and exhaust are restrictive. Does anyone know the performance difference for just having a exhaust compared to having exhaust and headers? Also would want
  14. I am also interested in this, i have seen 33" tires on 3" lift (2011 Chevy) and he explained he had to cut back the front fenders to fit them (Mickey Thompson Mud Tires) I would love to put 33" on mine but cant stand rubbing. I see some people say 33" fit and some say they wont. I have a 2.5" lift and it looks as though i barely have an inch between tire and wheel well in the front. I am running 31" ATVs on 17" stock rim.
  15. I am also interested and have a very similar set up already. Sierra 1500 2013 with 2.5" lift and 5.3l Engine. I have put the tune on and deavtivated the AFM. next year i am wanting to install new Long Tube Headers, along with a full Dual exhaust. Thinking 2" exhaust to increase flow but not eliminate the Torque. after the mods i will have it tuned for 91/93 using diablo custom tune hoping to get close to 400hp or close to 340rwhp. I know with the FlexFuel engines the injectors can handle up to 400hp. The non-FlexFuel would need new fuel line and fuel injectors i believe. If you have
