  1. Sorry guys, I made this topic 4-1/2 years ago. Back then, all the links worked, but I’m sure the forum settings have changed a good bit since then. Side note: I was planning on coming back to GMC with the 2019’s but I just can’t get past that front end. So I bought another F-150 Platinum instead. Hopefully, I’ll like the 2024 GMC’s! Ha

  6. GTP still hasn't been able to find anyone with a Sierra SLT or A/T close enough that he can experiment with
  7. If I did again, I'd try to find the black switches with the single red LED dot at top to indicate on. Mine are a little too much red plastic when compared against the dash.
  8. Trans are now programmed for max MPG and not driving performance, so what you're experiencing is normal. It tries to up shift every chance it gets, so if your on / off / then on gas in rapid succession, or light on gas, the trans will feel like it's lost. This isn't only a GM thing.. most manufactures are doing similar. Only remedy is an aftermarket trans tune.

  11. Sounds like they hooked up the HIDs with a Relay Wiring Harness but did not use Capacitors. Let them know in order for HIDs to work correctly in a new Sierra you need both installed. If you look in post #1 there are wiring diagrams.. print out and show them. Capacitors have several alternate names such as error code eliminators, CAN-Bus, etc...but they're all the same thing.
  12. You have to remove bumper. This existing topic covers the plastic trim piece: http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/158868-tow-hook-surround-trim/
  13. Amazon backs the purchase/return, so I'd say go for it. LED bulb designs are constantly being improved upon, increasing in capability and value for dollar. VLEDs were the best available 6 months ago but by now there could easily be better stuff available.
  14. LED fogs for function will require retrofitting a 9006 or similar type LED bulb: http://www.vleds.com/headlights/led.html I personally haven't seen any legitimate 5202 LED bulbs other than the Oracle's. Most on here so far has just added LED fogs for looks. Let us know in the LED Fog Topic (http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/156170-led-fog-bulbs-lights/) if you decide to buy the Oracle 5202's!
  15. Keep them, test them, and if everything works, then no problem. DDM will ship you new stuff if any of it is broken. The only drawback of DDM is their shipping times, but at the price, IMO its a fair trade. Almost every 2014 owner with DDM's either posted in the HID topic or Messaged me directly... so far maybe 5 out of 50+ have had actual part failures. Majority of people's issues are due to improper installation. *When you do test them, don't permanently install anything! Just lay wiring on radiator cover and temporary connect everything,
  16. So far, no member has reported doing the Sierra's themselves, but the pro guy mentioned which kit he thought would go in the easiest. There's another topic on here about opening the lights with an oven (vs cutting) if you're interested in being the first to try the DIY retrofit at home. What's the worst that could happen..? ha

  18. ChrisNJ- go back and read this entire topic. Both Silverado & Sierra headlight projector swaps have been discussed/explained.
  19. ChrisNJ - your projectors are working correctly, as intended. Only thing you can do is adjust the aim. The shutters are not adjustable but projectors are.. http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/158300-aiming-adjusting-headlights/
  20. The VLED headlight LEDs didn't work that well in GM projectors, b/c of the "two LEDs, one on each side" setup, so I'd imagine the Oracle will have the identical issues. For the Chevy non-projector guys, it's a sweet upgrade.
  21. By hand takes forever!!!! Try a mothers power ball / cone next time!
  22. Existing tow hook topic: http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/152847-tow-recovery-hooks/ Includes recommended install methods, etc... I personally just cut my existing plastics.
