  1. I'm in The Woodlands area. Shoot me a PM if you want to meet up sometime... My schedule is pretty open.
  2. No problem, it's pretty simple. For the new parts: Just slip on the wiring harness that comes with it, with the positive and negative terminals. Then cut the wireing harness after the fuse... So your cutting it between the fuse and circle connectors. Strip some wire covering to expose some bare wire on the ends. For the factory parts: Work up/remove some of the black wrap to have some play with the two wires that go the back of the factory 12v. Cut the wires off the back. You may want to remove your ground from the battery before you do this step.... You don't have to (I didn't), just make sure you don't cut them together, and make sure they don't touch once you do cut them, as it's a hot wire, unless disconnected. Strip some wire like you did earlier, and just connect the positive running from the dash to the positive of the new wire... Same with the ground wire. Use whatever type of wire connector you want, as long as they're secure. I think there's a washer on the back side of the factory 12v insert to remove it. Take out the factory 12v plug, drimmel out a slightly larger hole, so you can pop in the new one and secure it tight. You're good to go. Let me know if you need clarification on anything.... More or less just cutting the 4 wires (2 new and 2 old) and connecting them. Like I said just be careful with the two factory ones after you cut them, and don't let them touch; it's a live wire. It's not gonna kill you or anything, just scare you when they spark.
  3. Yes, I installed with coils exposed, and the cover went back on, just fine. The area you drimmel out has nothing holding the cover in place, so doesn't effect anything. Hardest part is epoxying the thing in place.
  4. Essentially the same thing.... I'd go with Borla personally. And S-type over Touring... Perfect amount of low tones.
  5. If you want my honest answer, my opinion is Camburg is the best: https://camburg.com/shop/suspension/camburg-chevygmc-1500-2wd4wd-19-20-kinetik-series-billet-upper-arms/ Also, Icon and Baja Kits are very reputable as well.
  6. Sorry, posted install in other wireless charging thread here:
  7. Here's mine: And here's how I carry most days:
  8. Even if there is any power draw, I'm pretty sure it would be minimal. I mean it would just be keeping power supplied to the pad. If nothing is on the pad drawing power, then I don't see how there would be any significant power draw. I mean if you keep a car charger or radar detector plugged into the 12v 24/7 do you really think it's drawing enough power to affect anything? The original guy in this thread did the same thing in September, he hasn't complained. I guess time will tell, but I'm not worried.
  9. tapped into the 12v outlet wires, to get more power. It's always hot, but shouldn't be drawing any power unless something is charging on it.
  10. Some pics of the install today. Epoxy isn't pretty, but can't see it at least. Drimmel made short work of the plastic tabs. Wired into 12v at rear. Works good. Size is perfect.
  11. Fit was perfect... Epoxy is drying now. Then have to do the wiring. Will post complete install pics later this evening.
  12. Was going with the before mentioned single coil disk.... But decided to step up my game to 5 coils!!!!  Will be installing tomorrow... Will report back. Size is almost the exact same size as the phone tray in center console, so should work beautifully. Going to tie the power into the rear 12v.  Here's the part I used: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PYQQ1R7/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_R2ZwEb6850DQB  Getting the cover off this larger one was infinity easier than the small disc one.

  14. Ha! I figured there'd be one left somewhere sitting on a shelf collecting dust.... but like you said, no way other than randomly calling parts departments at dealerships and asking.
