  1. You can kinda see my brake pedal in the pictures. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  2. I just finished this install today. I only did the fronts though. I'll be honest, I'm kinda disappointed in the light output. The lights are not bright at all. I didn't even know they were on until my dome lights turned off. I'm pretty sure it's the exact same light that's in the headliner where the homelink buttons are. Just that dull warm glow that will kinda illuminate your center console. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  3. My lights came in and my harnesses from pgamboa also came in. I know this yellow wire is the one I'm supposed to tap into for the lights +. Is there also a good ground that I can tap into on the same bcm plug? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  4. Who did your gear swap? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for the pic. It looks like it may be just a little bigger than the gap on the silverado grill, but it should still work. Do you have any pics of the light output at night? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  6. I really like that setup. I wonder if the spacing in the bottom of the GMC grill is the same as the Silverado. Would you mind measuring the width when you get a chance? My silverado grill is 1 inch. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  7. I'm not sure what exactly Blackbear tunes in the tcm but the random hard shifts are gone. Jerkiness is gone, I'll still get a random clunk maybe once a month if that. It's pretty rare though. Probably best mod I've done to the truck as far as drivability besides fixing the gas pedal flex. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  8. 17 and up are locked by gm. You can have them unlocked by either sending them into hp tuners or buying an unlocked one directly from hp tuners. That's the expensive route. I found a used a tcm from a 2016 Escalade that's also a 6.2 8 speed. That tcm worked in my truck and blackbear was able to tune it. There has been other people that have tried the same thing and it wouldn't work. Blackbear doesn't know why it works for some and not others. That's why they dont advertise that specific service for 2017+. If it wouldn't have worked I would have gone the hp tuners route. I can't believe that gm wont fix the tuning but I can have someone fix it with efi live or hp tuners. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  9. I honestly think the only way around the 8 speed problems is to get the trans tuned. I've had all the updates done at the dealer as far as gm tuning. I've also had the new fluid installed. It all helped but the kept acting up. I've had my tune for around 7k miles and it's great. I took my truck into the dealer about a month ago to have a recall done. Before I brought it in I took out my tuned tcm and put the stock tcm back in. I also flashed my truck back to stock. It was a night and day difference. Trans went back to being miserable to drive. As soon as I got the truck back I swapped my tcms and flashed the tune again. It's so much better. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. Where are you at in Texas? I'm in the Houston area and on my way to work this morning the North wind was brutal. Gusting at 21 mph. It was the 1st time I've even noticed wind noise coming from my A-pillar lights and it was LOUD. Definitely made me reconsider mounting a light bar behind my grill and getting rid of the A-pillar lights. Driving into a N wind gusting 21 mph will make a huge difference in your mpgs.

  11. The dealer flushed and added the new fluid to mine and it helped but it still wasn't great. Had the trans tuned and it's great now. 5k miles so far and it shifts the way it should have from the factory. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  12. You can go on any Toyota, Dodge, Ford, and GM forum and find issues with all the manufacturers. Everyone is saying they'll go to the other. I honestly think it's just luck of the draw. My 17 has had a few issues here and there, but overall I'm very happy with my truck. Sorry to hear your truck has had so many issues. I hope your next one is better.

  13. I honestly have no idea. Maybe the seal gets bad, or the grease wears out and let's motor noise transfer into the cab? After reading a ton of posts with people saying it fixed there noise for $35 I said why not. I was sceptical but it actually worked. I've been hearing that damn ticking during acceleration for 3 yrs. Took it to the dealer twice and they said it was normal. Now its fixed. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  14. Yeah I took about 30 mins to install. 1 15mm bolt on the steering shaft. Remove that bolt and push the shaft up to separate it from the gearbox. Then remove the 3 10mm nuts that hold the boot to the firewall. Thanks. It's a 7" readylift. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  15. I think it was $35 at the dealer. Amazon has them for $34. Part # is 2581560. They have white lithium grease in them already but I added more since that's what everyone else is doing during the install. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
