  1. Cmsmoke837: It puts out quite a bit of light. I was planning on adding additional reverse lights in the bumper step pockets but I changed my mind when I saw how much light this put out.
  2. I have a Putco Blade light bar mounted under the tail gate. I'm very happy with it.
  3. A link to a mirror that is available. https://www.amazon.com/Gentex-GENK20A-Dimming-compass-Temperature/dp/B0083AEVYA/ref=sr_1_4?crid=6DDMY86RHOV8&keywords=Gentex+Auto-Dimming+Rear+View+Mirror+silverado&qid=1642261120&s=automotive&sprefix=gentex+auto-dimming+rear+view+mirror+silverado%2Cautomotive%2C76&sr=1-4
  4. I have a 2017 WT and it came with prismatic mirror. I wanted an auto-dimming mirror so I ordered one similar to the one in the link below (same manufacturer). Mine only has the compass reading, not the temperature. The mirror has the compass sensor inside the mirror, so only a power wire was required. I can see outside temperature two ways in my Silverado; when my phone is connected via the USB cable the temperature is displayed at the top of the radio display. The other way is when I change mode or fan speed on my climate controls, my Alpine momentarily displays the climate page that included the outside temperature. When I ordered the mirror, I didn't notice what color the characters were and received one that displayed in red. So, I put that mirror in my son's Sierra and ordered another one, this time with blue/green characters. https://www.carid.com/gentex/gentex-auto-dimming-rear-view-mirror-1826498981.html?vehicle=172407
  5. When you changed the transmission fluid, did you put in the "new" transmission fluid? I don't recall what it is called, but if you're experiencing vibrations from your transmission, then the dealer will flush your transmission and add the new fluid. As I understand it, it is supposed to make the torque clutch last much longer. There is a TSB on it and they are supposed to do it for free. You could be feeling the torque converter clutch slipping.
  6. I have a 2017 Silverado 1500 and pull a 5th wheel camper. I installed Roadmaster Active Suspension and it made a huge difference. They do not affect the ride when not towing. They can also be removed in about 30 minutes if you are not going to be towing for a while, in the winter for instance. I love them.
  7. I have a 2017 Silverado WT and replaced the factory I03 radio with an Alpine I209-GM radio. I replaced the steering wheel so that I had radio controls and installed a Denali display cluster at the same time. The Alpine doesn't communicate with the Denali cluster, but it does communicate with the BCM. I can display gauges and tire pressures on the Alpine display if I want. I can also connect my phone for Navigation and IHeart Radio. My backup camera connected to the Alpine and displays very clearly. You can also purchase a video module to control multiple video inputs. I recently purchased a camper and I'm going to install a camera on the back of the trailer and input the video on the Alpine. It's been 2 years since I installed it and I have had no issues with it. I didn't go with a "double din" radio because I didn't want to cut the dash in order to fit the radio. I also don't like the way that the factory radios look. In my opinion, the Alpine looks much better.
  8. White Auto and Media Services (WAMS). I purchased a cluster and their programming service. I installed an Alpine I209-GM radio at the same time. See my post.
  9. I have a 2017 Silverado WT. I swapped out the painted bumpers with chrome, and the front bumper that I found had the fog lights. The bumper came with the lights and the bumper harness, but there is no harness on the truck if it did not come with factory fogs. I built a harness with a relay for the lights. I swapped out the light switch with one that has the fog light switch. The Harness DR. helped me out with the additional wires that I needed to add between the switch and the BCM. White Auto and Media Services (WAMS) provided the means to update the BCM programming to allow the fogs to work. I even have the indicator on the instrument display.
  10. Waffle34 - you don't replace the trim. The chrome pieces attach to the existing trim using 3M tape.
  11. I was initially looking for a "behind the grill" or "in the grill" light bar option until I found the ZRoadz light bar bracket. It bolts to tabs that already exist on the bumper. One of my issues with "behind the grill" lights is that some of the light is blocked by the grill. The ZRoadz brackets put the light bar in front of the grill so 100% of the light is useable. Another issue is the shutters in front of the grill. The ZRoadz brackets do not interfere with the shutters at all.
  12. I have a 2017 Silverado WT. You can order the chrome piece that goes on the window trim. I ordered the 4 chrome trim pieces and installed them a couple years ago. I also installed chrome covers over the door handles and chrome caps on the mirrors. None of them have come off, even when I've taken my Silverado through a car wash. I believe the brand that I purchased was Sizver.
