The brake controller I bought from etrailer.com the other parts I bought from https://www.otrattw.net these are the pieces I ordered: SKU Product Item price Quantity Total VME-01 Snap-In V-Series Switch Bracket, End, Set of 2 $3.50 1 $3.50 VHP-CAR V-Series Panel Plug $1.35 2 $2.70 Subtotal: $6.20 Shipping cost: $4.00 Total: $10.20 then I ordered the switch bezel for models with the factory brake controller (GM Part #22830877). I used a dremel to cut out the opening to accommodate the switch plate. It all took me about 90 minutes to complete.
Does this eliminate the AFM feature?
Actually did this on Thursday, but I finally mounted my 20 inch GMC wheels on my LTZ. Glad I got the oem polished wheel instead of a reproduction chrome. Of course it had to start pouring down rain as soon as I finished. Guess I should be glad that the rain did wait until I was finished.
After reading this post I did a little research to see how it was done. Yesterday I got in my 2015 Silverado LTZ to try and tackle this mod. Not only was I surprised to find it it was done by the previous owner, but I also found over $200 stashed in that little cubby hole. what a perfect day ?
Thanks for the opinions, after reading the post above by Bob2C I’m pretty sure I’m going to go with the Oem polished wheel. Unless something else catches my eye between now & next Wednesday. I didn’t even think of curb rash until you posted that. My wife doesn’t drive my truck either, but I have to admit (but never to her) that I’ve scarred a wheel or two in my life. The polished aluminum is easier to have repaired if that were to happen again.
Looking for opinions, my 2015 LTZ currently has 18" wheels with the chrome "hubcap". I've finally found a 20" wheel that I like and my options are an OEM Denali wheel in polished aluminum or a replica wheel in chrome. I live in the midwest where a ton of salt is usually used during the winter months, so I'm inclined to go with the polished aluminum. But I like the bling of the chrome also. What are all your thoughts? has anyone had any of the replica chrome wheels and how are they holding up finish wise?
I second that thought and would pick option #1
I second that thought. I would prefer door#1.
Bob, thanks for the info. Sounds like I need to do this. Are those part numbers you listed GM part numbers?
Just picked up my 2015 Silverado LTZ on Monday, I'm also curious how I can add this to my truck. It seems the more I read on it the more confused I become.
This guy has the harness for the OEM boards, maybe he can hook you up with an installer, the ink below is for a 2014 - 2015 Silverado, he has a harness for the 2016 - 2018 also. https://harnessdr.com/product/2014-2015-articulating-running-board-harness/
