  1. I ordered a flat panel Green Filter sized for my truck. Took the bottom half of the OEM Air Box out of my 2020 Sierra 1500 6.2. Loosen the clamp holding the lid/MAF spun it 180 degrees so it was now the bottom. Used High temp red gasket seal around the rim of "lid". Inserted the filter (pleated side out) placed a real book on it . Let set over night. I practiced with my original filter the night before. Drove the original filter around the block and it was an improvement over being buried in the OEM box. The red gasket peels right off of the rubber of the filter and the plastic of the OEM lid. Next morning the seal was fine and it saved buying a cold air intake causes lets face it no air under that hood is cold after ten minutes so the little bit of plastic shielding the filter of a $500 intake system is not doing a bit of good. Just touch the windshield bug juice bottle after a trip to town, better get a glove. Ok why a Green Filter. At first it was green an my Dark Sky paint has hints of green. After using it for a month I am giving them props. Something so simple and inexpensive sound, great and I can feel an increase tug from the engine. Now like the GM air box from the dealer the increased air sets of a warning that will eventually go away when it learns this is the new air amount or you can pay the dealer to reprogram it. Like they do their own box. I hate my local dealer so much I'll hit the dismiss button before going to them. I did keep all the OEM equipment incase the truck ever needs work at a dealer. All the aftermarkets brag that the do not need to reprogram the computer. Id think if you can trip the computer you are sending it air. I did it with Green Filter, $60, free shipping, and 5 minutes of labor time. Best of luck to All
  2. If you sit down a go to order a new GMC sierra SLT there is only 3 radios in the click box (GMC Website) bottom radio, middle and middle with Nav. We all have seen the how to add the Nav you tubes. They are just adding it to the middle grade radio. I am not sure but I need the front camera. I willing to bet once the camera is plugged into the back of the "VIDEO BOX" my words. I betting it completes the loop and will turn on. If it needs turned on with software at the dealer I would make it worth the 140 per hr. and make them turn every camera spot on. Even if you intend on having them or not. I no i keep on about this front camera but I need it. Even though I asked the dealership they pushed this truck and out of desperation I bought it. If I cant get a camera I am thinking of trading it in.
  3. You are the first person I have spoke with on the front camera. What issues did you have? I do not have a camera can it simple be attached and wired to monitor?
  4. I know this was about nav upgrade but does anyone know if the 2020 with Nav and rear camera; Can a front camera be installed. It and a bunch of other stuff comes with Denali and package so I have it in my mind there should be a plug and play camera and space in the DVD looking thing behind the monitor? Dealer shot me down on the camera both sales who wanted to sell the truck in inventory and then service who backed the sales up. Told me the don't make them. Traded a 40K Nissan Titan 3 yrs old for 55K GMC and Titan was loaded with all the safety equipment that this truck doesn't. I do just need the front camera i am distance challenged. No joking, Thanks in advance for any help.
  5. I looked mine over last night and noticed it to is stiff and upright after a stop. It will most likely loosen up. I figure a stick can be cut to length or a prop rod like a hood has. I want to thank all for pointing out what I never had a chance to find out before the purchase. I was blindsided with a transmission issue and the only place who was local and willing to sell me a truck was the GMC dealer in the little ghost town I was in at the time. I can't say it is a bad truck but I can say it not like my old one. I guess I am still in mourning. So that is why having this group will help.
  6. This may sound stupid but with the Multi Pro's first gate down it looks like a spoiler. Does anyone think it could both let air out of the bed like a "net" does and give you the benifits of a spolier with downforce? There is a message you have to cancel on dash but then I ran 80 miles on the highway with it down.
