  1. Bed lighting - wiring?

    On earlier trucks there used to be a wire that went to the 7 way connector at the hitch that would be always hot once you hooked it up under the hood and added the fuse. Might check into that?
  2. I cannot comment on the answer to your question, but I have noticed that the smell from other cars (especially people smoking) is much stronger in my 2018 no matter the setting than any previous vehicle I have ever had.

    Be careful when torquing it back on. I broke one of the 6 bolts on my 07 that I used to have. Never noticed only having 5, but it seemed easier to twist the bolt off than it should have been.

    Nope no special tools needed. Take the 6 bolts off the bottom that hold the bed to the frame. Remove the 3 screws that hold the fuel filler neck to the bedside, and unclip the two wiring harnesses back by the spare tire that provide power to the lights and the trailer connector. It is a pretty easy removal.
  5. You wouldn't have to worry about that, because chances are the person that is delivering your package to your house isn't an Amazon employee at all, but an even more random contract delivery service.
  6. Fishing at Lake Comedero - Mexico

    A buddy of mine and I went to Mexico 5 years ago to fish Lake El Salto and had a great time. We decided it was about time to go back again, so this time we went to Lake Comedero and stayed at Lake Comedero Lodge and they guided our trip. We traveled into Mazatlan, Mexico on Friday 1/11 and were picked up by James the owner of Lake Comedero Lodge. From Mazatlan it is about a 3.5 hour drive to the lodge but there were plenty of refreshing beverages and snacks to enjoy on the ride. Once we arrived we were greeted by Debbie, James' wife and were taken on a tour of the grounds and shown our rooms and the common areas as our equipment and luggage were being unloaded. We had a delicious dinner and some more beverages before calling it a night to get ready for the next morning.Wake up call was 5AM on the following morning which wasn't too bad for our group because we came from EST and the lodge is 2 hours behind. A hearty breakfast was hot and ready for us on the table by 5:30 and we were in the trucks to head down to the boats by 5:50. We would fish from about 6AM until approximately 11:30 when we would come in for lunch which usually was fish, hush puppies, french fries, cole slaw, beans, and dessert. We would eat/rest/nap until around 1:15 and then head back to the lake where we would fish from 1:30 to dark (6PM or so). After that we would head back to the lodge, have some drinks, call our families, etc and then have dinner which varied every night and all were extremely delicious. Then rinse and repeat. We were there 5 nights and fished 4 days and by the end we were all beat.I would highly recommend fishing with Lake Comedero Lodge if any of you are interested in a trip like this. www.lakecomederolodge.comThe trip started off a little slow due to bright blue bird skies, my buddy and I still had 99 fish in our boat on the first day with a 5lb 12oz and a 6lb 1oz. The second day we only had 60 with the largest fish being 5lb 2 oz. On the third day it was overcast and the bite really picked up as we caught 137 fish with 5 fish over 5 lb with the largest being caught by myself at 8lb 8oz. Then on day 4 we caught 142 fish with 5 more being over 5 lb and I caught another monster at 8lb 10oz.Our overall group of 8 people in 4 boats for 4 days caught 1802 total fish with 5 over 8 pounds with my two fish being the largest.Now to the fun part... PICTURES!Heading in for lunchEveningSunset 5lb. 13 oz. 6 lb. 9 oz. 8 lb. 8 oz.8 lb. 10 oz.
  7. 6.2L Yes or No

    The post referenced here was my post, and I have to say, since getting the 6.2 over the 5.3, I am happy as can be and have all of the power that I want to navigate traffic and still have a very comfortable ride. I won't go back even with the fuel premium.
  8. Trail FX Tonneau Cover

    Thanks! I haven't been able to look at it a s won't be able to til morning but I didn't want to waste my time either. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  9. Has anyone used a Trail FX soft roll up tonneau cover? I need a cover by tomorrow and want a low profile one if at all possible. After calling multiple dealers of all brands in my area this is the only low profile I have found that I can get by tomorrow. I have searched the forum to no avail and there aren't a ton of reviews online either. Any reviews or feedback would be appreciated! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  10. Well I bit the bullet and got the 6.2. And man is it already an awesome ride! Out with the old, in with the new! Thanks for all the feedback! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. Can anyone help me with this? Am I right in thinking that all of the current incentives are GM incentives, and no dealer incentives? I'm trying to figure out how much I can get the dealer to also kick in and get this price down a bit.
  12. I need an explanation. It looks to me like all of the rebates are via GM Financial, none by the dealer. Is that correct? If so, how much do you think I could expect the dealer to knock off on this truck? They offered me $38500 for my Tahoe where as Laura GMC only offered me $33500, but I still think that is a little low. Am I stretching to think I can get them to $4000 or $4500 difference if I use the Costco rebate?
  13. Thanks for your feedback everyone. I have been leaning toward the 6.2L and I have already given it a test drive and was very impressed. I just didn't want to pay for something that is not a noticeable feature. In the end, as of this morning, fate has taken care of the choice for me as the 5.3L truck that I was looking at is no longer available. Now I just need to get the 6.2 deal negotiated a bit better. Thanks again!
  14. I am looking at two trucks that are virtually identical except one has the 5.3 with the 8-speed tranny for $42k and the other has the 6.2 with the 8 speed tranny for $45,700. I have never owned a 6.2 so I am wondering is the bigger motor worth the extra money? The truck will get driven a minimum of 100 miles daily about half stop and go and half interstate miles. Which will be better on gas in this condition? Any and all opinions are appreciated!
  15. Do they make a paper bag big enough to still want to take a ride in her?
