  1. I agree, however, it's a bit of a "status" symbol that I didn't buy my truck at some used car dealer other than the manufacturer dealer in my mind. Probably stupid, but, then, I often am.
  2. I have the in-channel vent deflectors from GM - I think they are from EGR. Took a bit to break them in - left windows up for quite a bit after install but I, occasionally, got the roll window down and back up message. Still, after a bit of time, no issues.
  3. It's been awhile so I'm trying to recall. The fronts required drilling and I bought a rivet nut gun to get it done.One cannot easily access the rear of the front fenders. The rears, where the other side of the fender can be accessed, required a new hole drilled for a screw attachment. So, indeed, there is drilling required. If one lives where the roads are salted in the winter, be sure to protect those drill holes prior to installing the splash guards.
  4. I installed the stock Chevy color-match splash guards. I really like them.
  5. Thanks, Jim! Merry Christmas to you and all of our great contributors! This site has brought me a wealth of knowledge and cost me thousands as I find new ideas from awesome people sharing their incredible mods!
  6. Bought myself a Christmas present. Morimoto XB LED tail lights, More pics to come at night time... probably tomorrow as I'm having dinner on Christmas with a retired IBM CEO - I'm so going to geek out!
  7. When it comes to glass, that is what insurance is for. Failures can com from many causes: a load in the truck contacting the glass but not quit breaking it, road hazards on the windshield and all side windows (rocks kicked up from the road can bounce off an object and find their way to your side window - happened to a guy at work two months ago) etc...
  8. I'm on a 3" level and went with Bilstein 5100s with the 0.85" setting, 1.5" body lift and 35x12.5x18 BFG All Terrains.. New control arms, of course, and I couldn't be happier. I mean, other than doing a true 6" lift ...
  9. I bought an AutoSync with BTDiesel mods done online and then uploaded to the BCM, or HMI, depending on what you want. Many options such as this without wiring and diodes and such.
  10. Interesting, I never knew 2017s came without a back up cam. Is this a WT? Also, I didn't know Sierras came in a WT and without a backup cam. Did a quick search, you must have the IOB ...
  11. Totally agree, Jim! I did forget to mention retuning for my 35s (wish I had 38s ) Thanks for the info about shift points, I'm going to give that a try.
  12. I have a white truck, hided the dirt pretty well, especially with the splash guards. Still, I wash it nearly every weekend when it's the rainy season here in Florida or a front comes through during the winter.
  13. I use the FashPaq F5 tuner. Turned off AFM (though I had already disabled it through AutoSync and BTDiesel) and did the performance tune for 91+ octane. There is, also, a choice for an 87 octane tune but I wasn't interested in that. In my experience, it's a very good tuner - I changed RPMs at start and idle. I could, also, tune shift points but I really don't know enough to mess with that.
  14. I just have mine powered by the 12 volt (cigarette lighter) port on the lower dash, it's always on.
