  1. I have two broken step pads on my 2013 GMC 2500HD 3 inch Assist Step Bars 19213595 & 96. On the bottom of the step pad there are two numbers 19203022 G5013-000. I couldn't find either P/N. However, after searching doing some searching I found that someone has confirmed on another forum that 19203047 is a direct replacement to the19203022 and according to the post the step pad that comes when you order the 19203047 has the 19203022 stamped on the bottom. Side step Pad 19203047 https://www.gmpartsdirect.com/oem-parts/gm-step-pad-19203047 Note that this link does not confirm compatibility with my truck but I'll take the word of the post reference above since tthey ordered and installed OK. Also note gmparts.com does not recognize 19203022 step pads or OE bars 19213595 & 96. The per step pad price is high dollar even with the 19% discount from a retail price of $54.86 to $44.69 although lower than Ebay and Amazon (see below) Ebay has two assist step bars for sale confirming the P/N of the Assist Step Bars and several listing for the step pads 19203047 but the step pads start at $50.20 and Amazon has one supplier with the step pads for $53. Both are higher than gmparts.com.

The step pad replacements from these brands are less in cost than the above sources. If anyone has any insight as to the source and compatibility please let us know. I did find what could be the OEM, Max Mate. If I can find out if there pads are compatible the pads may be significantly less in cost. https://www.amazon.com/MaxMate-2001-2018-Silverado-2001-2019-Stainless/dp/B00I548QGI/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=maxmate+crew+cab+step+pads&qid=1558891940&s=gateway&sr=8-2 Finally, I round this supplier who claims possible generic compatibility of step pads to assist step bars https://www.custompickup.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=3473 I'll update if I find out any addition info.
  2. Thx! Great minds think alike! That's exactly what I was going to try first!
  3. Thx for the suggestion. I did play with this option and you confirmed this as a potential solution. I also tried to turn-off the Stabilitrak but, it appears that it's cannot be turned off as the tractions control. I assume I would need a programmer to turn if off completely.
  4. I assumed it could be any one of these issues. What I’m looking for is suggestions as to which is the most likely problem investigate first source and if there are any online diagnostic and testing instructions to determine which of the many potential causes is the actual cause.
  5. Thx for the reply and explanation. So who is Justin and how do contact him?
  6. I just bought a used 2013 GMC 2500HD 6.0L 2WD 82K miles. I had never driven a 2500HD 6.0L / 4.10 only a 5.3L / 3.73 and noticed two drivability issues that seem strange to me. Starting from a stop the truck seems very sluggishwhen acceleratin unless you put your whole foot into it and the shifts seem very soft and short almost not noticeable especially the 1-2 shift. I compare this to my 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 5.3L / 3.73 which I totaled in March. I would have expected the larger 6.0L with 4.10 to have more power and torque vs my 5.3L / 3.73 but it doesn't feel that way. My 2008 1500 was weighed down by almost 2000 pounds of bed cap, sliding bed and tools but seemed to have better acceleration and firm shifts than an empty 2500HD 6.0L. Any thoughts on expected drivability behavior would be appreciated. Is it normal operating behavior? If not, what could be the issue? Would a programmer like a DIablo i3 fix improve the drivability behavior I'm noticing ? I know that the Diablo die make a difference on my 2008 especially firming up the shifts.
  7. I just bought a used 2013 GMC 2500HD. As I was driving from the dealership I discovered that the tilt up direction on the driver side tow mirror would not work. All other directions (tilt down, left, right) work fine. What could cause this? The switch? The actuator / motor?
