Added LED lights under the bed rail with a toggle switch utilizing a factory hole leading into the stake post hole, had to drill it a little bigger for my switch. Used the post hole for my wiring, fuse, etc... covers for the post holes coming soon, tonneau comes Monday.
I'm in Canada, purchased them from Princess Auto. They are pretty standard, I'm sure can be picked up at most automotive stores. ( https://www.princessauto.com/en/6-pc-3-3-16-in-led-amber-clearance-marker-lights/product/PA0008186348 )
Today I added LED grill lights. Simple and quick. I was able to find some led marker lights, $20 for a set of 6. I removed the back piece and soldered on some new leads. They fit perfectly between the grill openings at the top. Tapped into fuse #40 under the hood for power when ignition is on.
I went with Airlift , the ones with the internal bumper so they can be run with no air, and also came with stainless steel parts and braided air lines... was cheapest on Amazon vs local retailers, and also noted that the prices fluctuated frequently. If you go on airlifts website (if you choose them) and you can enter your vehicle info to get the model # of the kit so you know what to look for.
I have a '20 Silverado z71, very bouncy, more so when I have my travel trailer loaded. Put in airbags and it's a thousand times better. $600 (cdn$) from Amazon, installed myself in about 2hrs. The 17 Colorado i had previously, the suspension was way better.
Another problem to add to my list. Only happens when I do the remote start. After I unlock, enter, press the start button, throw it in drive and leave, the infotainment screen remains black and unresponsive. No music, no nothing until I actually shut off the truck and restart it with the push button. Are we out of the days where we can pull off the battery cable to "reset" the system? This just started this last weekend. Was not in for any repairs, no work, nada. ************** Update: Further to this, the heated seats stopped working during remote start, the system stopped recognizing my phone being plugged in, and the Auto Stop feature stopped working. Took to the dealer today, all is well again. All of these failures were the result of software and the entire truck needed to be reprogrammed. This was under service bulletin #20-NA-199 I'm in Canada, so not sure if the bulletin codes are the same in the U.S. , but if you're experiencing any or all of these failures, this is the solution.
2020 Silverado LT 3.0 Duramax I've noticed just the other day coming out to my truck, the hours display was still illuminated. After some checking, I've found that it doesn't turn off after turning off the truck, locking it and walking away. It just stays illuminated all day and night. Anyone else experiencing this?

Thread the bolt in a couple turns, then slide it in the hole, turn the bolt a little so it turns the flat bracket, once its up and down, pull on the loop so the flat bracket is tight against the inside of the panel and hand tighten the bolt until it all fits together, once its hand tight then get your wrench and finish it off...
