  1. Just some info that could save you $. The camera connectors are a “Fakra” style connector and there are multiple variations that are keyed/clocked differently and denoted by a letter after the connector name. Google Fakra connector and it will yield a plethora of info on it. Really helped me understand what to order. Having said that, you can use a “Fakra Z” cable type which is a universal configuration of the connector to then fit any other style Fakra connector. I used them to relocate the camera on the front of my grille to my Westin grilled guard. Works perfectly, snaps right in and no loss of video quality. Cost me $10 for a 16ft. cable from Amazon. The descriptions typical make reference to it being used for a GPS antenna cable but it is the same cable used for the cameras. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HP647BX/
  2. I spent a few weeks researching this same issue as I installed a Westin Grille Guard and need to move the sensors. I never located just the connector ends, so I ended up buy two different sets of Westin harness relocation kits to get the bracket I needed and the correct wiring harness extensions as Westin hadn’t/hasn’t packaged the two together to fit the new body style GM 1500 trucks. I can confirm that the sensor extensions in this kit work with the 2019+ GM 1500. It comes with 4 harness extensions with male on one end and female on the other for true plug-n-play.

  3. They’ve agreed to swap my grilled guard with the redesigned one when it gets manufactured.
  4. Just posting this for information that it might help others. I have a 2019 Sierra 1500 Denali (new body style) that I had the Westin HDX Grille Guard installed on it. See it here. Immediately after installation I noticed that the low beam headlight output was severely diminished. I actually pulled over and inspected the lights thinking something was wrong with them. Turns out there is a horizontal support on each side that runs directly in front of the lower low beam headlight and blocks it and it’s output. I reached out to Westin and asked if they were aware of this issue and the potential safety issue that it creates. After a few emails back and forth and photos of the front-end showing the light blockage, I received a phone from their customer service group. I was told their engineering and/or designers were not aware there were two low beam lights on each side in addition to the high beam light. And with that not being know they created a design which blocked the output as described above. Oddly enough the photos of the grille guard on their site show the lower low beam being blocked by the horizontal support. Having said all that, in short I was advised this specific model of the HDX grilled guard will be redesigned and possibly ready for release in about 6 months. So if you’re looking to purchase one of these you might want to hold off until around July 2022 and inquire on the updated design.
  5. I’ve got the AT3 P305/45/R22 on my 1500 Denali. I run 40 PSI (cold) for better gas mileage, but initially ran 36 which was a smoother ride. The extra 4 PSI made a difference of about 2 MPG. The max tire PSI is 50 PSI.
  6. I finally found the topic where the chrome strip was removed from the factory powered step/running board. Doesn't look too bad. See link below. LINK HERE
  7. I remember seeing a post in the forums where the chrome strip was removed. Believe it was heated with a heat gun and “peeled” off. Not sure if I’d recommend that.
  8. Thanks for the details! I really appreciate it. I really like the look you created by blacking out the grille surround while keep the center chromed, along with the other blacked out bits.
  9. Looks great! I’ve got the same truck, black Denali. Did you use an etch primer before you shot the black? If this was this done with a rattle can, eg spray paint, what brand did you use?
  10. I haven’t driven an AT4 other than as loaners, but surprisingly I think my 2019 Sierra Denali rides much better than my wife’s 2019 Yukon Denali.
  11. Appears that the vertical adjustment possibilities are very limited with this model. A bit disappointing given the price. I’ll just have to remember to remove mine after each use.
  12. My radio displayed a message this morning that the Amazon Alexa app had been installed. It was pushed out, I did not download it.
  13. Is this still available or has it been sold?
  14. The description of the adaptive cruise control on the 2020 GMC Sierra’s is “Adaptive Cruise Control-Camera”, which means it doesn’t not contain or use a radar, only the camera. In contrast, my 2019 GMC Yukon Denali does have a camera and a radar module based adaptive cruise and is described as “Adaptive Cruise Control-Advanced” which means it uses both the camera and the radar (advanced).

  15. On the models with adaptive cruise there is only 1 camera, the same single camera location used for the enhanced safety features in my 2019 Sierra Denali. I had a loaner 2020 AT4 with adaptive cruise. Only difference I could physically see was a different part number on the camera.
