I installed my speakers and light kit on Saturday. I'm pleasantly surprised with how it sounds and how it turned out. I don't know if it's because my expectations were low because people on this forum really complain about them a lot but I really like them. Just curious, what's the longest you've gone playing them without starting the car? I can't seem to find a suggested hourly duration that's safe on the battery other than "hours". Also, what's the capacity of the battery in your truck? Mine's just a standard 1500 AT4 so stock battery but not sure if the larger trucks come with 2 batteries as that used to be an option years ago.
I paid $530 during a Memorial Day deal from a reseller via eBay and installed them on Friday. After reading so many complaints about them on these forums, my expectations were low but I went ahead and bought them anyway. I actually really like them. They get extremely loud, which makes sense for 100W (50W per channel). This is far more than most portable bluetooth speakers. They are light on base of course and are certainly expensive, but they serve their purpose, look cool, and are very convenient. Assuming they last a while, I'm happy with the purchase.
I just finished installing mine on my 2019 AT4 on Friday. So far, I like them quite a bit and am pleasantly surprised after seeing so many here say how much they hated theirs, my expectations were low.
I guess I'm in the minority but I just added this to my 2019 AT4 and installed myself. I really like it. I have the truck in the garage and we can listen to music with the kids in the couldesac I live on. They get loud. Very loud. They don't have much base but no portable bluetooth speaker really does either. This is all coming from someone that has spent thousands on high end speakers for my home theater setups. Any system will have some drawbacks and this one is certainly expensive, but there's actually quite a bit of engineering that went into it's design which you can't really appreciate unless you've installed it yourself. Maybe me and the kids don't listen to music that make it sound bad but I've heard anything from 90s Rock to Moana and it serves it's purpose and then some.
It's all wired in together so I doubt it. To "replace" it you would need to rewire a new harness which isn't how they do things in 2020. They just slap a whole new one in since it takes 1/4 the time.
The brightness could be a little brighter I feel. All of the pictures in the thread make it look much brighter than it is in person. Part of it might be making sure it isn't distracting to oncoming drivers maybe.
I'd say it's not possible unless you remove the grill, which doesn't look to be too difficult but I didn't attempt. And even if you decide to switch back, you can order another one like your original. So the risk isn't that great.
Interesting because these emblems would only fit Sierra's with the Multi-Pro tailgate. Are there 2019+ trucks that aren't the old body style that don't have the tailgate? I guess I thought it was standard. My AT4 is black and went back and forth with red or black for a few days before deciding on red. I didn't want to have to replace red tow hooks and AT4 emblems as well so went with red. Also liked the contrast.
Good catch. ShopChevyParts.com didn't mention it at all but if you look up the same Part #, you can see a better picture of both here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2019-2020-GMC-Sierra-Illuminated-Front-Grille-Emblem-84741559-Black-OEM-GM-INSTK-/264632076800
