  1. In the back seat I have a collapsible laundry hamper. $10 bucks at Wal Mart. Good for keeping groceries from being thrown around, and it folds up to stash under the seat when I need.
  2. Also, the GM Body Builders Manual lists the service terminal as "964265-2". Which is very similar to the p/n I list above. Tab size is the same, and it crimps to the same size wires. Perhaps this could be a better match that fits into the plug housing?
  3. I was researching this last month and did a ton of homework. These connector pins are made by TE Connectivity. Their "Micro Timer II" series. The Male side, the Tab, should be 963904-2. The female side receptacles of X500 are made to fit a male tab that's 1.6mm wide, 0.6mm thick. Which is the size of the 963904. https://www.te.com/usa-en/product-963904-2.html Maybe P. Gamboa will jump in to confirm...? I'm not sure what he used. And there are other electronic component manufacturers that probably make the same thing.
  4. So I have searched Google a ton, with no luck. I am curious: has anyone tried to tune their truck in such a way to get the AFM to engage more often? There's tons of solutions for a full AFM delete. I wanna know if it's possible to go the opposite way; and increase the tolerances on whatever parameters the ECU monitors (engine loading, throttle position, etc...) To trigger V4 mode? I don't have a great need to actually do this....I'm more curious than anything....
  5. Hi Guys. I posted this question on an existing thread in the 2020 section. So if a Mod wants to delete that one, it's fine. This section is more appropriate. I'm curious: Has anyone tried to retrofit the 9L7 switch panel onto a 2014-2018 Silverado/Sierra? I doubt it would be a perfect drop-in installation. But could it be made so it's functional? I have a 2018 Silverado Z71, with the factory Aux switch panel already installed below the Infotainment center. I'm adding some LED pods and other lights....so I'll need a place for switches that I'd be happy with. Right now, "plan A" is to mount rocker switches in the roof console like I've seen some people do. BUT the Upfitter switch panel from a 2020 Silverado/Sierra would also look good....if I could do it. Seems like the the 9L7 requires the switch panel, wiring harness, fuse block, and a relay block that comes with the harness (?). If I could make the switch panel fit in the knee bolster like they do with the 2020 models....I could probably find mounting locations for the rest. The only issue I can see is that if the 9L7 option comes with any plugs that connect to any existing plugs on the truck.....I doubt mine would be the right type since I have an older model. Any ideas?!? I'm no slouch when it comes to wiring.....so if I bought the components I could probably make it work. I'm just wondering if anyone has done something similar.
  6. Hi Guys. Really liking this thread. But I'm curious: Has anyone tried to retrofit the 9L7 switch panel onto a K2 Silverado/Sierra (2014-2018)? I doubt it would be a perfect drop-in installation. But could it be made so it's functional? I have a 2018 Silverado Z71, with the AUX switch panel already installed below the Infotainment center. I'm adding some LED pods....so I'll need a place for switches that I'd be happy with. Right now, "plan A" is to mount rocker switches in the roof console like I've seen some people do. But the Upfitter switch panel from a 2020 Silverado/Sierra would also look good....if I could do it. Seems like the the 9L7 requires the switch panel, wiring harness, fuse block, and a relay block that comes with the harness (?). I saw the GM p/n's earlier for these items. If I could make the switch panel fit in the knee bolster like they do with the 2020 models....I could probably find mounting locations for the rest. The only issue I can see is that if the 9L7 option comes with any plugs that connect to any existing plugs on the truck.....I doubt mine would be the right type since I have an older model.

  7. Not sure if you guys have seen.....but Rago Fabrication is discontinuing (has already discontinued?) their ditch light brackets for 2014-2018 silverado 1500 trucks. They have the stainless steel ones on sale for ~$90 bucks. My set just arrived so now all I gotta do is order lights & a switch. https://www.ragofabrication.com/collections/discontinued/products/2014-2019-chevy-silverado-ditch-brackets
  8. OK, hopefully this is a quick one: I have a spare set of GM 17” aluminum wheels from my old 2005 Silverado Z71. I just bought a 2018 Silverado Z71 that came with 18” aluminum wheels. Wondering if my old wheels will fit on my new truck?? It looks like there might be sufficient clearance between the brake calipers and the smaller wheels....but I’m not sure if anyone else has tried? Thanks!! ~Ian
  9. Hi everyone! I’m Ian, live near Pittsburgh, PA. JUST bought my 2018 Silverado Z71, in Cajun Red Tintcoat. She replaces my 2005 Silverado after 14 years of ownership. The old girl was getting old, and I found the red 2018 Silverado with 7000 miles on it. So I took her home. I love this forum and the wealth of information it provides. I had a few initial questions about my new ride, which I’ll try to post in the appropriate forums. Stay safe !!!!
