  1. Hey guys, As some of you know I have asked a few questions before. So you will know I have had my truck for MANY years. So here it goes. When I lived in Tx, I bought a lifetime alignment (7 years ago). (Truck is lifted, so I know I would be doing this frequently.) Since I have moved back to Az (3 yrs ago), I have taken my truck in 3 times now, and they “say” they can not align my front end properly for whatever excuse they always give (alignment rack to small, techs capability is not advanced enough, you name it). Regardless the place I would take it in Waco could. In 2 years I have gone through a set of tires that I normally get 50-60k out of. So the store has suggested “new camber bolts” in the UCA frame mounts. Seems like they are just fishing to make some money, since they are losing it from a lifetime alignment. Has anyone ever changed they camber bolts on the UCA so they don’t “drift” during normal driving. I have found a couple replacements on line, but they dont look as if they have any more adjustment than that of the stock camber bolts. If so, what have you gone with? Side note: UCAs, Tie Rods, ball joints, and hub/bearing assemblies and tires have all been changed to aftermarket. Also installed a “beefier” idle/pitman arm brackets to prevent wear on steering. Also adjusting the torsion bars higher, could also prevent the vehicle from proper alignment. However, RCD Lifts claim that is not a requirement for their lift kit. Lift kit installed on truck prior to my purchasing 13 years ago.
  2. I have a 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500hd with all black leather and plastic console in great condition and I am looking for an all black jump seat to swap it out with to haul more people. Please let me know if you are interested and we can work out the details. Thanks!
  3. Hello everyone, On my 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali I did a hood air induction vent swap for a chrome vent cover and while I was at it I added Led RGB lights inside the vent taking care not to restrict the air flow. Has anyone else done any chrome or Led RGB mods? If so lets see them please.
  4. Okay, so we all know that what's in the published specs is rarely the real payload of the truck. For those of you lucky enough to have your 2020 HDs delivered already, could you please share what your configuration and trim level are, and what does the door sticker say your payload and tow rating are?
  5. Who has deleted their EGR and was it worth it performance wise as well as financial? Do you need to buy a tuner if you do? Do you recommend a tuner instead of an egr delete? Thanks for any advise
  6. on a 2000 chevy 2500 with electronic 4x4 shift. the notifacation center on the dash has shown "service 4x4" and the 4x4 will rarely shift and if it does it normally wont disengage. when it is not working the lights on the control switches will not even respond, the gear it is in just stays lit up. If they do switch then it goes ahead and shifts properly.The fuse is fine. Is that just a bad switch? Why is the service 4x4 on also? thanks
  7. I want to turbo my soon be mine 05 2500hd, and I mostly need this for better towing but the extra power would be nice as well. I'm going to get new fuel pump, oil return, new intercooler and pipes, etc and I'm looking to like maybe 500hp out of the 6.0. Any advice for extra parts for reliability? I dont want to go crazy, this will be my daily driver.
  8. Hey all, I have a 2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD 6.0L Gasoline. Remote start is not working. This sucks a lot for those of us living in Central Alberta Initially the truck didn't start due to a check engine light coming from my downstream O2 sensors. My catalytic converters were cactus, so I removed them, had the O2 sensors adjusted and the engine light disappeared. That was two weeks ago. The remote start worked for one or two days and then I started having issues with it. At first the remote start only worked intermittently, maybe once out of every 10 or so attempts and it was random. Then it stopped working altogether. I press the lock button on the fob and then hit the start button. The park lights on the truck flash as if it's going to engage, and then nothing happens. No sounds either coming from it to suggest it's going to start up. I looked at a few forum posts and dealer recommendations and attempted fixes. This is what I've troubleshooted so far: I start the vehicle manually, then attempt to use remote start. Nothing. I'm aware it only has two start attempts. My lock and unlock buttons both work fine. There are no check engine lights or lights of any kind appearing on the dash. Hood lever sensor seems to be functioning. No hood open warning on dash. (Still may be a problem but I'd like to avoid replacing the latch and sensor unless it's my last option) Oil pressure and coolant temperature are normal. There is no extra key or key fob in the truck. Hazard lights are not on. Vehicle is definitely in park. I replaced the battery in the remote. No dice. I do have a now remote on order just in case although it does seem to be communicating fine with the vehicle. I finally found a blog that suggested that it might be the brake light switch. Apparently this can cause both the cruise control and the remote start to fail if it starts to loose it's marbles. I decided to test out my cruise control and unbeknownst to be me the cruise control will not engage either. So this morning I replaced the brake light switch (which was no easy task). I jumped in my truck to test drive it and it seemed to brake fine and the lights still worked when the pedal was depressed. Cruise control still would not engage (but I don't care as I live in central alberta and don't use it at the moment), but when I returned home, I shut down the vehicle, locked it, and attempted the remote start. It worked!! TWICE!! I was super excited, turned on the ignition to reset it, turned it off, jumped out of the truck and went to attempt it again. Nada. Nothing. No dice. Zippo. I've retried 5 times after turning on the ignition to reset it, and still nothing. Can someone please suggest where to look next? Any ideas? Anyone had the same drama and found a fix? I don't want to take it into a shop, I know it'll cost an arm and a leg! Thanks!
  9. Hey all, we're a local Chevy dealer with a strong ecommerce presence. We have the lowest prices on the Kicker subwoofer package for the 2014+ Silverado & Sierra Crew & Double/Extended Cab sizes. Installation does not require dealer install. it is a plug and play package. We have guaranteed low prices that shouldn't be beat! GM offers a few versions of these units: -Double Cab and Crew Cab models have different parts numbers -GM offers just a sub upgrade, or the sub upgrade plus amplifier on the door speakers. *The standard Sub upgrade works with the Bose system. *The kit including Sub plus Amp on the door speakers will NOT work with Bose systems. For a price, please send us a message with your body style truck, and which kit you would be interested in plus your Zip Code for shipping. Everything is in stock ready to ship. Forum members will find that our prices on all GM accessories will be hard to beat. Please message me with any questions on this or any other accessory you may need for your truck. *** Currently running a little bit of a deeper discount on the crew cab models, with just the sub upgrade. Buy cheap, sell cheap is the name of the game ***
  10. Ok, something just started happening with our 2016 GMC 2500HD Denali 4x4 with the diesel. The remote door lock and unlock won't work every time from either of our fobs. We bought this truck last August so I can't imagine the batteries in both of our fobs have died at the exact same time and only 7 months in. My fob gets used the most with my wife's fob barely getting used at all. Anyone else experience/experiencing this? And, what did you do to remedy it? I guess we can try replacing batteries first, but batteries only lasting 7 months in a fob? And both failing at the same time, especially given one gets frequent use and one barely gets any use. We know it's not a fuse because it does work from time to time.
  11. My issue is a little bit different however none the less an annoying one. So yesterday i bought some led bulbs off amazon to replace the dome lights in my truck, i got them opened them up all looks good and then go to put them in, and as i did they turned on not an issue however they where to small so i have to return them, i put the old one back in and not lights in the dash and dome lights are acting up. So it was the left front one i tried it in and took it back out no others. Now none of the lights turn on by the button inside the truck. (door lights and turning them on by the small switch which turns them all on works just fine. when the door is open i can now turn the light off by pressing the button. now those issues are a little less of a bother to me, however the radio (which still works perfect) now has no lights, same with the driver info center buttons 4wd actuator light and the lights on the steering wheel lights. All the buttons however still work perfect it is just the lights. Any help is much appreciated ! Truck is a 2008 GMC sierra 2500HD SLE Diesel crew cab long box
  12. I just purchased a 2011 gmc 2500hd Denali with 157000 miles on it. When the rpms are just below 2000 the needle spikes to 2000 and drops back, as if surging. It downshifts fine. If you try to gradually accelerate at that point it shudders as if in to low a gear. I have not tried pulling anything with this truck yet, but wanted to get an idea whether or not I have a serious problem or not. I took it it to a dealer to have a diagnostics ran on it and the tech couldn’t get power to the tester, so before I tackle that issue I wanted to see if I had a major issue. According to some of these forums this looks to be a issue on a lot of newer trucks. any experience with this issue would help. Thanks
  13. Hi All, new to the forums, I just bought a 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Denali and I’m having a hard time with the 110v power outlet. Ever since I bought the truck it hasn’t worked. I removed the passenger side panel and checked fuse #35 and noticed it was blown. With the truck off and nothing plugged into the outlet I removed the fuse and the second the new 25amp made contact the fuse blew instantly, I tried it again with another 25 amp fuse and same problem. Took to the dealer and they’re wanting to charge me $600 to diagnose the problem as they have to “rip apart my whole dash” to isolate the issue. I looked inside the outlet and nothing is inside that would short it out. Before buying a plug or an inverter I wanted to ask here if there’s anything else I should try? TIA
  14. Forgive me if this has been discussed but I did a search and didn't come up with any answers/help. last summer I purchased a new 2018 2500 HD 6.0 4x4 WT to pull a 30 ft toy Hauler. The RV dealer installed a Blue OX Weight distribution, anti-sway hitch and set it up as they normally would. The truck pulls the 11000 lbs with-out an issue. But here is my question/issue... when towing it rides terribly, the truck bumper, hitch and tongue area bounce like crazy. I watch the dealer install the weight distribution hitch and here is why I think it bounces so bad...ITS TERRIBLE..... they measured the track bed wheel opening height before adding the trailer, then they added the trailer, measured the drop off the wheel well, and than adjusted the hitch so the truck really had no weighted difference in ride height/weight with the trailer vs. without the trailer. So there really isn't a lot of tongue weight on the rear of the truck, is this making it bounce? Spring is coming and I want to address this because we have several multi-week trips plans and I am not sure I can handle it the constance bouncing I feel like the hitch ball should be lowered so there is some amount of weight on the ass end of the truck, to put weight on the springs. This is also my 1st winter with this truck and it rides rough and has no weight in the bed, so I put 400 lbs of salt in the bed and it rides so much better, that is why I am thing I need to lower my hitch ball. yes the trailer is fairy balanced front to back, this happens with-out any toys in the garage, or with an HD in there, all the storage 5-700 lbs of stuff is all in the front of the trailer. Any help from some trailering experts would be great
  15. I have a 2019 sierra 2500 diesel and it does not like stop and go traffic. the transmission temperature will increase to 185 degrees, rpm's increase by about 400, and transmission shifts hard. Anyone else experiencing the same? what causes it?
  16. Hello Everyone, I have been looking at adding a couple of cameras to my 2019 GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali. These trucks can be difficult to pull into parking spaces and lots, especially if they are smaller. I just recently raised the front end about 2-3 inches, this has made parking a even bigger challenge. Yes, when parking I try to back into most of the parking spaces, but sometimes that option isn't available. The system I have been looking at is from Echomaster, this system is listed under GM accessories and is labeled Intellihaul. The multi-camera system comes complete with a interface module, wiring, two (2) cameras that are mounted within a black mirror trim piece that attaches to the bottom of the mirror. The trim level on my Denali comes with trailer towing mirrors that are all chrome, and I really didn't want to substitute the lower black trim pieces in place of the chrome. I have seen one and it didn't look that good, on the all black mirrors they look OK (Just my preference). Echomaster has just recently released a new 3rd brake lamp camera that has three (3) different viewing angles within a single camera, a right 95 degree, a left 95 degree and a rear 90 degree. Then all I would have to do is add the front facing camera. In this arrangment, I would have to utilize a multi-camera module, this module is complete with wiring harness, bracket and OEM interface jumper cable. However, the new released 3rd brake lamp camera only has one (1) video output. I would have to hard wire 3 more input triggers to make this function correctly, the left and right turn signals and reverse triggers. To operate on the OEM radio screen, I would have to depress the "back" button for three (3) seconds until the camera icons appeared on the screen. This would give me the rear cargo area. To view both the blind spot camera views, I would have to cycle the left or right turn signal depending on which camera I want to view. I would also have a front facing camera installed in the grill area, which would assist in parking manuevers. In this setup, I still would have full operation of the OEM backup camera when in reverse. I think this would be a good option and give me what I was looking for. When I talked to the tech assistance at GM this afternoon, he said that the system would be awkward to operate. I would like something that is plug-n-play, a system that I didn't have to rely on to take to dealer to program the radio, BCM or any other related modules. What is everyone doing about adding cameras to your truck, what sytem and options have you looked at and/or are utilizing? Do you like your truck with the camera addition? What are your thoughts? Thanks,
  17. I drive a little less than 50 miles a day back and forth to work. My odometer was 80,0** yesterday now its showing 81,157. Really dont know what to do about it. Has anyone else had this problem? Really dont want to wake up to a million mile truck tomorrow.
  18. On my 2001 GMC Yukon XL 2500 6.0L 4wd I'm getting a flashing brake system warning light and the chime activates when the vehicle is moving. Also, the Automatic Headlamp System appears to be disabled. I suspect a faulty parking brake light switch. I was having an issue with the parking brake warning light not going out after releasing the parking brake about six weeks ago. The solution then was to reapply the parking brake and then release one or two times. That solution is not working now, and the Automatic Headlamp System, which has a connection to the parking brake, is not working or disabled. To turn on the headlamps, I've got to use the manual switch. The problem must be in the parking brake light system. I'm not certain if it's just a switch or a relay and/or fuse somewhere. The brake fluid level is midway between the max and min level marks. The ABS warning light is not an issue here. Does anyone have experience with this problem, and know the solution or troubleshooting procedure to fix this problem? Regards
  19. So i been having a issue, first off i am a mechanic seeking advice for more experienced with ac. the system is charged full and the ac fan comes on when it wants to some time i start up its blowing but shit off truck and then ac will not come back on for another couple days i first thought was ac clutch fan or resistor... just need some input if any
  20. new here. just throwing this out there to see if anyone has info on how hard it is to convert the front bumper on a 2006 Silverado 2500HD to a 2018 Silverado 2500HD or what needs to be done to get it done. heres a picture i found on Facebook of it done. just need more info.
  21. I normally get vehicles without sunroofs, because the headliner height is lower on vehicles with sunroofs and the headliner presses the left side of my head to the right in the driver seat (confirmed this in a 2019 3500HD on the dealers lot last month). I'm 6'3" and it's mostly in my torso. Does anyone know if the height of the headliner in the front cabin becomes equal with the rear headliner height if the sunroof is not optioned in (in other words without the sunroof is the headliner is closer to the actual roof panel since it's not hiding the sunroof mechanical under it)? I'm hoping to order my 2020 GMC 3500HD Denali SRW soon and this is the one option I'm not sure about yet. I don't care about resell or trade in values because I'm keeping this truck for at least the next 20 years, but if there is no height difference I might as well get the sunroof and pre-pay for my chiropractor.
  22. Wanted to reach out to the forum and see if anyone has ran into these issues with their radios. I have a Tuscany build 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 6.6L, LTZ, Z71 build and I have a stock radio head unit that seems to have problems when connecting any phone to it. I use one device (iPhone XS Max) and it works via Bluetooth, however, there are times when the Bluetooth doesn't drop off but I get no sound from the speakers but still shows the song playing. The workaround I have discovered is to cutoff the ignition and turn it back on and the song plays over the speakers. Is this a known issue or is this something I need to get my dealer to look at? TIA.
  23. I traded my 2012 Silverado 1500 for a new 2016 2500HD! It's an LT trim level, but has quite a few options. It has the All Star package and LT Plus package, which adds most of the important items. It also has a few extras, like the LED bed lighting and towing mirrors. MSRP was just a little over 50k. Here's a few completely stock, dealership photos. It looks pretty plain for a 50k truck!
