  1. Google lets you download maps to your phone so you're not dependent on cell towers. Northern NH is pretty spotty so I started with that now I have basically the whole northeast down to DC on my phone.
  2. Just lower the headliner and unplug the roof antenna.
  3. The reason is cost. They run e-fans on the 1500s to help meet MPG targets. HD trucks aren't subject to CAFE regulations so they don't care. They don't run them because they're better.
  4. AC on my 2003 with a mechanical clutch fan was garbage when not moving. Electric fans are massively superior. No way that one shitty fan that can be stopped by a fried clutch that is dependent on engine RPM can outflow a pair of electronic fans. And I cannot recall hearing of an electronic fan failure on these trucks.
  5. GPS uses a tiny amount of data. I used to use my phone constantly when traveling and never saw an appreciable use of data. And you're gonna pay all that money for a database that is inaccurate/outdated. Google Maps/Android Auto/CarPlay is the future of in-car use. OE navigation is trash.
  6. It may not just be the cover. For me, as summer comes in and the trees fill out, the auto headlamps go on and off way more often than fall/winter. This is one thing where Chrysler stuff has something that I'm shocked no one else copies- you can easily override the interior dimming with the dimmer switch and they have a dedicated screen off button. It's like three screens deep to turn off the screen on our trucks and that's silly.
  7. Forums have taken a hit because of Facebook groups. But, I'm on two groups for 2014-18 GM trucks and they're full of morons. If you want pictures of giant wheels with stretched tires, sign up. If you want real advice, come here. haha
  8. I had one on my riddle that I bought because the crappy stock style cause horrible gas to face issues. They make good stuff. Bought a new hand guard from Geissele a couple years back that came with one of theirs which is top notch too. Bought a Radian for my pistol build which is great too.
  9. You can't pull a bulb, the system is far more complex than that. The only thing that *might* work is finding out the resistance of the side airbag module and wire in a resistor. But be aware that the reference voltage a multimeter sends out can deploy an airbag so you'll need a shop manual or something to find that data.
  10. GM will never do it. Their truck division is too risk-averse.
  11. Those are LTZ headlamps. LT and the rest have a halogen lower element.
  12. I'd be shocked if any brand is bothering with 3.0/3.1- look at how basically every USB is low current too. The USB port might support a variety of things but it's there to plug a smartphone into since that's what the bulk of people will do with it.
  13. What Manny said is correct. Doesn't matter that all the wiring is there. You can't add the OE one after the fact.
