My brother works for a local GM dealer and while my Denali was in for its first oil change i was talking to the service manager about some of these issues. He mentioned a possible recall for the 3rd brake light leaking water. He said a few have come in and because of the way it leaks, it looks like the rear window but they were able to see it happening from the 3rd brake light. Ask your dealers to check this before messing with the rear windows.
I've owned my 19 denali 6.2 4x4 for a few months now and have near 4k miles on it. Last week in TX I drove a ram long horn for the week. 5.7 with 4x4. Nothing about the interior stood out as being that much better. Maybe it was missing some options as it didnt have the larger screen but door and dash materials didn't feel any better and the seats didn't feel any more or less comfortable. I put about 400 miles on it for reference. It was fine but nothing about it stood out compared to my denali. I'm also not a repeat truck owner like many here so all of these are new to me. Needless to say I'm happy with my choice.
The carpet cutting is for hiding the wires underneath and also a cleaner install. I initially did the same but after I put something in the small storage area and pulled the harness up I decided to cut and route under to avoid this in the future. I also ran the volume knob wire down the driver side and mounted the knob low on the driver side so it cant be seen. That knob is an indicator that there is a sub in the truck and don't need anyone thinking it's worth breaking into. Also, for anyone running and android based OS phone, there is a 10 band EQ under advanced sound settings. Additional tuning can be done to the sound this way.
When I was shopping these I looked at the retrax one xr and it was in the 1399 range. The pro was more and pro xr was near 2k from what I recall so what you are looking at is comparable to the retrax one xr which is the plastic version. One thing to think about with the retractable ones is the space they take up for the cover to rollup. I ended up going with the undercover ultra as the short bed doesn't need any more space taken out of it. Hope this helps.
Installed the kicker sub add on along with the volume knob tonight in my 2019 Denali. Initially I couldn't even tell it was on until I turned the volume up and could feel the sub moving. I pulled the amp and set all 6 switches up. Mine out of the box were set to 1, 4, 5, 6 up and 2 and 3 down. Others have posted different settings out of the box so I'd check these during any new install. With all 6 up it was finally pushing some sound. Its not a ton better than stock but with some adjustments and some break in time on the sub it may get there. I'm running bass and mids at 2 and treble all the way up to 12. The sub volume control is about half way up. I found this to be a good combo to start. I also use an android phone and newer android OSs have an eq under advanced sound settings where I've done some more fine tuning. Not bad overall but it wont push hard at higher volumes. For comparison I was running a 10inch Alpine Type R with a 600 watt amp in my last Vehicle that also cost quite a bit more. For the money the kicker add on is good enough for now.
My 19 Denali does the same. I own/have owned some lower volume production vehicles and electronics are typically all over the place so things like this flickering logo arent an issue for me so I havent even bothered with taking it to the dealer. I will mention it when it goes in for its first service.
Have it painted. I have the same truck but in red tintcoat and have slowly been updating things to minimize the chrome. I will leave some but next is the grill which I will have painted. I've had this done on other vehicles in the past and it's much better in my opinion than plastidip or wrap. Looks factory to. If you don't care about keeping the denali grill, you can get a GM factory grill like the AT4 already painted. It just wont be the same design as the denali grill. Look at shopchevyparts.com. I've also ordered wheel arches and mirror caps in my red color and they do have the AT4 style painted grills which are body color around the outside and black in the middle. They also have the black emblems.
Just went over the install and there was an adjustment needed for the handle. The cover came with a bracket meant to mount in the corner where the handle is currently installed. The handle is supposed to be removed and the bracket installed then the handle mounts back on top of the bracket. The problem is that the bolts are factory mounted inside the bed and aren't long enough to reuse like this. So we installed the bracket further back in on the rail just behind the handle. The bracket meant for the handle is also not painted whereas the ones that mount on the rail are so they sprayed it for me. I'm guessing that because it was meant to sit behind the handle it wasn't meant to be seen. I'll post a pic shortly.
I'm having mine installed right now at Bedliners Plus in Irvine. The undercover ultra does fit with the handle. The handle has to be removed for the install and the rail is notched so that when the handle is reinstalled, everything works as expected.
