  1. How to wire lights into aux switches

    My guess would be that those switches actuate relays in the fuse box (probably under the hood). I highly doubt that they have all the power for the lights running through them.
  2. I just got my Tahoe back with the same issue. Rear shocks were locked up. Replaced free of charge with the warranty. Rides like a dream now. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  3. Same as the above guys. Had the Firestone Ride Rites and they worked great. I plumbed mine to come out right inside the fuel door. That way they were hidden and easily accessible.
  4. I believe you can do 2 wheels for $250 or all 4 for $400 or there abouts. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  5. I am currently having the Magnaride shocks replaced under extended warranty on my Tahoe LTZ. To quote the sales manager at the dealership where I bought it just a couple months ago, it rode "like a mexican hay wagon". I have done quite a bit of digging on this issue, and it seems that you can replace with most any shock that fits on a non-magnaride truck but as others have stated, you will throw codes. To get around that, there is a company called Xineering that makes a kit that will connect to those sensors and essentially trick the truck into thinking that magnaride shocks are still connected. You can check them out at Xineering.com/shocksims.html
  6. LED Under Rail bed Lights

    You can tap into the power source that goes to the trailer connector. In my 2007 I had to hook that power source up to the fuse block under the hood and add a fuse. Not sure if that is the same on the newer models. If you click on the link in my sig for underrail bed lights it will take you to a step by step that I made. Again, that was on a 2007 (non-classic).
  7. Well stated. I am on the same train as you are, in that I want it to be done right and I don't want to have to figure it out myself even though I'm sure I could. However, I also applaud those that do figure it out like th3magpi3 and wish to offer their services for others. As it has been stated in this thread, competition is good for both parties and they offer different service levels for different people.
  8. The only real reason I'm considering it is so I can have Google Maps or maybe Waze in the future on the head unit instead of having to look at my phone to see the map. I have a nav unit now and I would be willing to downgrade to save the money going to IO5 to essentially pay for the whole swap. I hate the GM nav interface with a passion so I never use it.

  9. Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure that I'm in love enough with AA (I have a Samsung S8) to want to upgrade. If there are other apps that I can add to the car then I might be more interested. I do like the fact that it allows the car to use my hotspot from my phone.
  10. One more question about the swap. Will I be able to mirror my phone to the head unit, or will this only allow the addition of AA/ACP?
  11. I have a 2015 LTZ Tahoe that I want to add AA to the unit. I will check to see which HMI and Radio modules I have in the next couple of days, but as of now I know that I have the ability for the radio to read my texts back to me, though I'm not sure that narrows down either of my modules at this point. I am interested in doing this upgrade, but I would like to keep my Sirius XM. Will this affect the ability to keep my Sirius subscription?
  12. Head gasket leak?

    Did the truck ever sit for a long period even on the dealer lot maybe? The rust could be from humid air getting into valve cover and the engine never getting hot enough to burn off the moisture. Sent from my SCH-I535 using Tapatalk 2
  13. Its never a bad thing to let your truck warm up, but I don't know anyone that sits around and waits for their truck to get to temp before driving. You wouldn't want to totally mash on the gas before your fluids could warm up and get thinned out a little, but as long as you have oil pressure you should be good to go.
  14. What kinda temps are you talkin?
