  1. This diode installation allows all of the lights to remain on simultaneously when the high beams are activated on GM vehicles. The diode is super easy to install, you need $2 and 10 minutes. 9 of those minutes will be spent congratulating yourself.After diode placement your lights will function as follows: In auto mode- whenever your lights come on automatically the fogs will be on also. Low Beams & Fogs- Only Low Beams & Fogs will be on High Beams- Low Beams, Fog Lights, & High Beams will all be on (normally by default) The vehicle turns off the fogs when in h
  2. So I wanted a power locking tailgate on my 2019 GMC Canyon. In the past I have used Pop n Lock, but that eventually failed after about 2 years. So Instead, I started looking into how I could retrofit a 2020 power locking handle into my 2019. The video below details everything you need to do it yourself. Totally worth the effort. The OEM lock is much nicer, quieter and will "fingers crossed" last longer than two years.
  3. Hey there! I'm going to do a public service to the GM Truck people and make a guide on how to remove your front fenders from your Early 00's Silverado, Sierra, Yukon, Suburban, Yukon XL, and Tahoe. It's pretty straight forward, but this guide should be a help anyway. If you would prefer to watch an in-depth video with the same steps I'm showing here, please click this link --------> Fender Removal Video 1. Here are the tools you will need: 13 MM Socket 10 MM Socket 13 MM Wrench 10 MM Wrench Socket Wrench Socket Extensions Penetrating Oil or WD-40 Bungee Cord(

  5. I am looking to see if anyone has been able to program their own key fobs with any cheaper machines. I have seen the Dorman programmers on eBay and Amazon which can program a 2016 Sierra Key fob. I would like to purchase a programmer or something similar like a diagnostic tool that could also program my wife’s 2012 Malibu or at least the newer GM trucks. Has anyone had luck or know of anyone able to program keys and key fobs with any cheaper tools? Any info is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  6. Hey all! So, as y’all know I have a 2014 Silverado. I installed LED reverse and cargo bulbs a couple months ago but I noticed there’s interference, and I don’t know what to do to fix it. Calling all electricians out there that know what I could do to fix this. Open for any responses, suggestions, and solutions. Thanks, y’all!
  7. Hi All, About 6 months ago we created a youtube video showing how to remove your front seats and center. That video has received over 7K views and we received many requests for a detailed video guide of how to swap to the center console found in the LTZ models into the trucks with the 40-20-40 bench seats. The parts cost between $600-$750 depending on the source. This is not an upgrade I particularly want in my truck but I have setup a go-fund-me me page (click here). If we can raise enough money, Pete and I will shoot a detailed guide for everyone's benefit. I hope we can get this video c
  8. Here is a video showing how to install a Pop N Lock on a 2015-2017 Colorado or Canyon.
  9. Morning/ Afternoon, I have a question about over filling your oil with the newer silverado's. I recently just changed my oil since I got my truck about 3 months ago using the 0W-20 mobil 1. I put in 8 quarts exacly (without filling the filter). let it sit for a second then started her up. Truck ran for a couple of minutes then I shut it off, let it sit for about 10 min and checked the oil. I was not able to read the oil level as accurately as Im used to due to how freaking light the color of the oil lol, so light! I drove it for about a 100 miles, let it sit then checked it again.
  10. What's up ya'll. I've had my front and rear Rough Country floor mats in my 2014 Silverado Double Cab for a bit over a year. I shot a quick update video to show you guys how they are holding up and protecting my floors
  11. The Sundae Drive does an in-depth video showing how to install an oil catch can for a 2014 Silverado 5.3L. What are the benefits of an oil catch can? Well if you visit the follwing sites you can read all about the benefits and importance of running an oil catch can. Catch cans are NOT ONLY for turbo/supercharger applications. They can be very beneficial for people with naturally aspirated setups. https://www.redline-motorworks.com/bl... http://oilcatchcan.com/oil-catch-can-...

  12. Hi all! I installed some seat covers on my '14 Silverado. Check out the guide and review - I'll be posting long term updates regarding how well these covers hold up.
  13. Hey Guys, After lurking on the forums and finding nothing on how to install a roof tent onto our trucks; I decided to take the plunge and see what it would take to get this done. As these style of tents are up there in pricing, (even more so for those of us in Canada), I didn't want to deal spending money excessively on rack systems that wouldn't be compatible with the tent, so I spoke directly with Smittybilt to see what they would recommend for mounting the tent on our trucks. At first I was considering using one of their contractor ladder racks as they were rated for 1000lbs and o
  14. Wanted to share a video of how to install LED Switchbacks on a 2015-2017 Colorado. Enjoy
  15. Installed a set of iBoardAuto running boards on my 2017 Coly. Check out the install and review videos below: INSTALL REVIEW
  16. First off, I'd like to say I am in no way sponsored by any companies or brands represented in this write up. It is simply a 3rd party review and how to. Below are a couple of videos I wanted to share in here on how to install an HID kit for a 2014/2015 Sierra (1500's, it may work on some 2015 2500HD's, but YMMV). I am using a kit made by The Retrofit Source. They specially made this kit with K2 1500 Sierra's in mind. It comes complete with: -Choice of 35watt or 55watt ballasts, high quality Morimoto pieces. I am using 35watt units. -Choice of 3000k, 4500k, 5000k, 6000k HID bulbs (als
  17. So I've put a scrap piece of carpet in the bed and I'm starting to kind of enjoy it. Along with the kids, who think it's a great place to lay down and play. lol Has anyone attempted any sort of DIY bedrug? $400 is a little more than i would be interested in spending. I have a retractable cover already, so I was thinking maybe some marine carpet over top of some type of foam maybe?
  18. I wanted something to hold smaller items in the bed so I made these dividers and used a branding iron for the chevy logo. The divider closer to the cab is darker as I just finished the poly on it. The other one I made last winter has been used and only had 1 coat of poly as it was too cold at the time. I'll have to redo it at some point. I'm going to add some quickfists to the one near the cab to hold some camping gear (hatchet, shovel, etc...).
  19. Hi All! We excited to share our installation guide of the Magnum Headache rack on my 2014 Silverado 1500. This installation procedure is going to be very similar for most trucks. Enjoy! for the video.
  20. So the weathertech mudflaps have been on my truck for 4 months and while they have held up well, we have found a fitment problem common to all Silverados. Check out the quick video below for details.
  21. Hi all - you can find an installation guide and review of the WeatherTech No Drill Mudflaps for a Silverado 1500 - check it out! Feel free to ask any questions.
  22. I'm looking at mounting a 20-21" light bar in my bumper valance of my 02' Sierra. I haven't been able to find much information on how/where to mount it. Would it be okay to drill into the skid plate to mount the light bar? Would the brackets included with most the light bars work for this or should I look into making custom brackets? I also have head that I'll need to trim out some of the plastic in the valance so I can position the light bar better. I attached a picture I found online for a visual. I understand this is a newer truck compared to mine but it's still the same idea
