  1. Hey guys so I got a 2021 Tahoe. At the dealer I plugged my phone in and selected the wireless car play option. Constant skipping etc so I reverted to wired car play. I finally figured out how to turn off wireless car play in my phone(so that the phone would connect to Bluetooth as a phone / music source, without going into car play mode) this way I can keep the phone connected to Bluetooth and plugged in to usb only for car play purposes. So now the next question. Has anyone used the rear USB’s to connect an iPhone via a USBc to lightning cable? I think running the cable along the co
  2. I setup a 250gb SSD from amazon. Formatted ms dos FAT. Has about 160gb of music and came with a USB c cable. It’s been a little picky where sometimes it won’t recognize it and you have to remove the cable and plug it back in. It also seems to do the “media indexing” song and dance sometimes, but for the most part it works well. I attached it with a little piece of velcro. I really wish these new trucks still had USB’s in the center console or glove box like the previous ones did. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Picked up a 2021 Tahoe RST 4wd. Love it but not a fan of the factory 22” wheels. I either want all black or chrome. Does anyone know what will fit these trucks without a spacer? Also what tire size are you running. The stock 275/50 seems a bit anemic. Thanks in advance! George Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I found that most of the "washing out" of the reverse camera at night was a result of the LED license plate lights I added. I have been meaning to replace them with the original halogen bulbs, but I have to find the housings (my led's were replacement housings). They LOOK great, but that much light aimed up at the tailgate where the camera is overwhelms the camera at night. Take care, George
  5. So Thanks to your help, I got it working! What I ended up doing was getting some sold core 18ga wire I had laying around and making two pigtails, Stripped the wire about 5/8 of an inch on each side, and inserted them into the BCM connector. They went further than I thought. Then I soldered each end of the diode to the pigtail. Taped the pigtails to the wire loom going to the brown connector, wrapped the diode in tape and taped that to the outside of the harness. Best of all, it works! I now have fogs on with parking lights etc.... Thanks again for all the advice / help
  6. That's what ive been trying to do, but just using the legs of the diode, not t-taping the factory wiring. Maybe its just not going in deep enough to make the electrical connections? See pics below. Thanks! George
  7. Hey Guys, So I have a 2017 Silverado Double Cab, non bose. I added the kicker VSS Soundstage setup, the one with both the amp for the cabin speakers and the 10" sub under the passenger rear seat. So here's my next question. Does anyone know the power output of the add on amp? Will it properly drive a set of 6.5" components in the front door. Overall it's a great upgrade but the biggest limitations are the factory paper speakers imho. Has anyone replaced the speakers in the front doors in combination with the Kicker upgrade? Thoughts? Results? T

  9. Hey Guys, So I got some LED license plate lights from Amazon, they are the type that replace the whole housing. They work really well and put out a lot of light, but I've noticed that at night they wash out the backup camera. Has anyone had this experience as well? Any idea what to do? (tape over part of the lens or something) or just switch back to the incandescent tag lights? Thanks in advance, George
  10. SO I tried this this afternoon. Thought I was doing everything right, but it just doesn't work. Lights still operate as normal. These are the diodes i bought from amazon: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B008UFX95U/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I tried the 10-22 jump with the stripe facing pin 22. On my 17 Silverado, seems like the #10 wire is brown and the 22 is blue. Am I doing something wrong, or did I get the wrong diodes or what? Help!!!! Thanks, George
  11. Hey Guys, long time lurker first time poster. I leased a 2017 Double Cab in Aug 2017. Mostly because I wanted a pickup as a 3rd vehicle at the time, and didn't plan on doing all that much to it. All of that quickly changed. I did what I consider the "basic" mod package and learned a bunch along the way. In August of 2020, my lease was up, and I decided to buy the truck out, partly because I had grown attached to it, partly because I had it 75% of where I wanted it, and partly because I simply couldn't replace it for what my buyout was. So here are the basics. 2017 Sil
