Hey guys. So every truck i have had i have always wanted clearance lights on it. I was going to do this job a couple years ago but i am glad i waited. The new 2021 lights look awesome and are super bright. I ordered the lights and the oem harness for them. I then made carboard templates for the lights to help layout and measure them onto the roof. To cut the square 3/4 holes i used a Dremel and a small file. ( next time i will invest in a square punch) Under each light i did add some silicone to seal everything up. While this step is not necessary i did it just incase. I then torqued each light down to 80 IB in as that is what GM calls for in the 2021 trucks. To connect power I cut off the factory 2021 connector and butt spliced a wire and ran it back across the roof to the passenger side terminal block and into the standard plug for clearance lights using a GT280 female terminal. While writing this it all sounds so easy however the job took about 6.5 hours. I took my time with layout and measurements. Honestly the worse part was that both end marker lights had to also go through the front support structure but only a little bit. That took some doing to cut that. The center light has 3 holes and the center one of that the entire thing had to go through the support bar. That took some work. All in all i am happy with the project and think they came out great. If anyone else is thinking of doing it i say go for it!
Ok guys question for yall. My 2011 Silverado 2500 8ft box has just started to rust around the fender wells. I was looking at getting it fixed when a 2021 new box take off showed up in my area. Now its more cost effective at this point to do a box switch. I know for the most part a 2019 bolts right up. With the 2020 model year the 2500 moved to an all new truck. Does anyone know how much modification there would be to get that model bed on the 2011? I know about the new electrical and would run a wire to feed power to the gate actuator. From looking at the bed i am thinking the issue would lay in the cab corners with the shape of the new box. As well as possible fuel neck. If anyone has any ideas please advise. Thank you!
Hey guys! So i have a weird issue going on with the driver side window control switches of my 2011 2500 Silverado.. I am thinking that the switch may be bad but thought id see what you guys think. So the driver side window will only go up and down with the key on accessory mode. If the truck is on the window does not work at all. The passenger side window control and the rear windows do go up and down. However the rear window lock button does not work unless like the driver side window the truck is in accessory mode. Has anyone else ever run across this before?
Hey guys I don't really want to start a new topic so thought i would throw these in here as well.. On my 2011 id like to remove the door moldings and replace with a thin strip of chrome. Are the strips on the new trucks compatible or does anyone know of a aftermarket part that is similar to what they have? Also it is my understanding the frames of the current trucks are the same as the 2011's Does this mean the beefier side steps are also compatible? Thanks yall!
Hey guys im trying to see if the high country 20x8-1/2, 10 spoke (opt RQ9) rims will fit on my 2011 2500. I think the bolt patterns are both 180mm so im thinking they can but before i go and do it id like confirmation. Thank you!
