I did a few changes in the last few weeks, I picked up a set of gm new trailboss ranchos, trailboss cv shafts, 2.0 trailboss leveling kit , 2.5 rear blocks and xl9000 rear shocks. Removing the icon stuff wasn't the original idea but the current setup rides pretty nice and it looks good. Yes it handled and felt more controlled with the icons but its pretty soft and smooth now.
Food for thought on this subject. No need to remove them, your sway bar won't let the front end fall that far anyway. Even with the extended coilovers you can put your finger in the gap from the icon uca to the stop. Even hanging on a lift without the wheels when you unbolt the extended coilover the lower arm falls 3/8 of an inch. Still no where near the stops.
Not to sound bad or anything but I haul 2 sit on fishing kayaks with the tailgate down. I ratchet strap them to the bed front and rear. I only go 50 miles at most and it works for me. I would think one that goes in the hitch to support them while in the bed would be perfect for longer trips. I was actually going to build one out of 2 inch square tube.
The factory gm kit you unplug the right headlight and it plugs in between the 2. So your idea with the headlight fuse would probably work fine.
I did the ltz wheel, high country cluster and ran the extra wire for the wheel controls to work. I spent about an hour on it, with the wiring diagram. Powered the pin for the heated wheel in the clock ring and the heated wheel button doesn't light up. There's more involved, it's not that easy. I didnt have time after that so that's as far as I got.
