  1. IIRC the Inverter is controlled by the RAP system, so it will turn off before the starter battery is drained. That said, yes Ford is WAY ahead in terms of on-site power. The Pro Power system is a game changer for that and GM & FCA need a similar option. I’m not sure if the T1’s have the secondary battery tray like the K2’s do, but on the K2’s it’s relatively simple to fit a secondary battery, isolator and a large inverter to provide power independent of the starter battery but still charged off the alternator.
  2. New front high-clearance bumper and a different exhaust setup (higher clearance) for improved approach & departure angles, plus a bunch of software bits (crawl control, 1-pedal driving) that seem to be unique to the ZR2 at least for 2022 (IMHO the software changes should be on the Trail Boss, but don’t appear to be yet) I’ve said it upthread, but the ZR2 is a LTZ Trail Boss+, not as radical a change as the S10 or Colorado ZR2’s are. There should be real suspension and track changes and there is not. I do expect it’s going to be $3-5k over an LT Trail Boss, but half that is simply
  3. Then you likely have an issue with the harness, not the sensors.
  4. Not really impressed to be honest. The front end looks like they copied a child’s toy version of a K2 GMC front end. Huge honking nose on the new Tundra and that grill is 1/2 K2 GMC and 1/2 previous gen Subaru. Yuck. Everything else on the market is MUCH nicer (and I don’t even like the T1 noses much…. But they’re way better than this) The TRD Pro quite frankly underwhelms. No front locker (not even optional), no improved departure angles, just suspension tuning for higher-speed off-road desert running (which few will do) compared to the TRD off-road. I can’t see why anyone would buy
  5. For the Mustache, if you can find the Midnight Edition part, it’s black. That’s the only package that came with a black one instead of chrome. I don’t know the part number.
  6. Check the rear for anything loose that would cause the clinks, but squeaks could just be the leaf springs themselves (annoying, not necessarily an issue).
  7. IIRC those are USB extensions. They plug into a unit in the dash (IIRC there’s a powered hub there which plugs into the HMI) Could be an issue at that end, also worth checking the fuses to see if one is blown.

  9. Pretty sure there’s nothing different in terms of basic spec between the T1 shocks and the K2 shocks until the new ZR2 becomes available with its DSSV shocks. the OP’s question is likely because they have a some T1 stuff available to them and want to use it. The main issue I’d expect is slightly different tuning because the T1’s tend to be somewhat lighter than the K2’s.
  10. They definitely didn't go all out, but there is more travel, more clearance and more sidewall vs an LT Trail Boss. There just isn't as much as you would have got if they'd fitted a redesigned front suspension like all previous ZR2's got (not counting the Tracker ZR2, which was an insult to the name) Frankly, the Silverado ZR2 is more LTZ Trail Boss+ than ZR2. The changes do not include the geometry and track changes that the S10 ZR2 and Colorado ZR2 both have received. Don't get me wrong, I dig it, I just think GM didn't do enough to justify the ZR2 moniker. I think GM need
  11. From all I've read, your harness should be prewired for everything except the 12V power for the camera when in reverse. For the reverse lights, you want to tap the 12V positive to one of the lights (you can also tap the trailer reverse light for this). I'm not sure which one this is, but you should be able to tell quickly with a multimeter.
  12. Check if the camera is getting power when you put it in reverse, it probably isn't. If it doesn't, you can tap the backup lights to power the camera.
  13. And that’s exactly what the OP was trying to achieve with an upgrade.
