  1. I don't know about the active shutters, but I have seen his videos before. I could not imagine paying $80k+ (Canadian) for a truck and then ripping it apart like he does...gives me nightmares.
  2. I have used ProClip as well on my previous trucks and really like them, but have not bought one yet for my new truck. Which mount did you go with? I've never been a fan of the ones that go in the air vents, so I was looking at the right or left console mount. My concern on the left one is that it would hit my knee and my concern on the right one is that I would not be able to angle the phone enough to see if from the drivers seat.
  3. I had this exact same issue with my 2016. I felt it was a safety issue - if I took my foot slightly off the brake the truck would actually surge forward. If I was slowly creeping forward into a parking space or garage, it was a little nerve racking. Dealer had no idea what it was. Like yours, it was intermittent. When I sold the truck, I fully disclosed the issue to the buyer. Supposedly he had a diesel mechanic friend that said this was typical of these diesel trucks that have mostly city miles on them (which mine did, but sounds like yours does not). He said they just needed a good manual regeneration to clean them out. I have no idea if that is true or not, just relaying what he said. Sorry I cannot be of more help - but thought I would mention that I had something similar.
  4. No instructions, but this guy shows the install starting at about 5:34. Good luck.
  5. Thanks, that makes sense. I got a little confused when pp said barcode - thought it had to be scanned by the GMC app or something!
  6. On my 2020 3500 Denali HD I have had the full Xpel Ultimate plus and the full XPel Fusion Plus Ceramic coating for about a month now and can make the following comments: The finish is definitely glossy and shiny (see picture below). I think it comes down to personal preference. I do like the matt coating on the car above, but I think my personal preference on the truck, given it is such a large palette, would be the gloss finish. But again, this is definitely personal preference. I was surprised that I still get the dirt film on the vehicle when it gets wet and dirty. For some reason, I expected that to be less prominent. Even after a good pressure wash, the dirt film is still there and requires hand washing. They were not able to complete the rocker panels. They said they tried all the tricks, but just could not make it stick. I love hand washing the truck with both coatings on - it's nice to not have to worry about making swirl marks, and if I do, they should be easy to remove with the self healing properties. They did the ceramic coating on all the external black plastic parts of the truck. I find that some of them still seem to dull, and some seem as shiny as new. I am reaching out to them to check to see if we can re-coat some of the parts that seem to be be faded. I picked up my truck from the dealer and drove it right to the detailers. I told the dealer not to touch the outside of the truck at all, but there were still a couple of corrections to due. However, the detailer did not charge me extra for the corrections. I bought a gallon of the XPel rinse free wash (https://www.xpel.com/Flawless-Finish-Rinse-Free-Car-Wash-16-oz) as up in Calgary here, it is a bylaw violation to bucket wash your vehicle outside. It is highly concentrated and should last me a long time. I give the truck a really good pressure wash with just water, and then use the XPel product - works very well. This was an expensive endeavour ($5000+ here in Canada)...but I would definitely do it again. Cleaning is way easier and the "no swirl marks" relieves some of my OCD anxiety Plus, it looks amazing when it is clean.
  7. See page 219 of the owner's manual and this article here: https://www.safetyresearch.net/blog/articles/general-motors-quietly-installs-keyless-engine-shutoff. I could see how that would be annoying in your particular situation, although for me I cannot see a situation where I would have the vehicle parked and running for more than an hour.
  8. On the off chance, I checked with my parts guy up here in Calgary, Canada. He is saying the same as you - GM Canada and US are out of that part...sorry. Have you thought of checking at some auto wreckers?
  9. Hello - I ordered a 2020 GMC Denali 3500HD and it did not come with a console tray. Does anyone know if they are supposed to come with that tray? Thanks.
  10. Check the deferrals fine print. Up here in Canada they were advertising it like crazy. I asked about it when I picked up my truck and they clarified that you still incur interest during the deferral period.
  11. You have to put the front ones on. The way you have it now, it definitely looks like they are just missing. Otherwise, looks great - good mod.
  12. I have the Husky x-act contour and love the fit and coverage. I like them because they are not rigid and slippery.
