  1. Have you seen the Michael J Fox Edition Sierra/Silverado rolling down the road? Looks like the Toyota from Back to the Future. Anyway there is a really cool headlight switch with the option for Off-Road lights. Apparently with a long push of the button the BCM will latch the signal and provide a constant positive signal for triggering a relay. It will also illuminate the icon on the switch as well as send a signal to the cluster illuminating an amber light icon next to the fog light icon or “ORL” in amber. I successfully installed this in my wife’s ‘16 2500 Denali yesterday but from what I’ve read it’s the same for 1/2 tons, HDs, and Colorado/Canyon. The BCM already has Programing for this from the factory but I’m not sure when (how early) it was started. I have a ‘15 3500 that I’ll try soon as well as a friend’s ‘17 2500 to do soon. If the Programing hasn’t been done in my ‘15 I’ll still be able to get the switch to illuminate as well as latch a signal for positive or negative relay signaling using a latching relay. There are several variants of this switch. Some have blue background for ‘17+Up model years and red for ‘16+earlier. Additionally some have the ORL switch without Fogs, and some have no surround backlighting. Here is the video from yesterday’s install..... ......More videos to come for other uses like work lights, incorporating into the X50A, rear facing lights, non programmed trucks..... Pgamboa has been very helpful in discussion about this as well as providing schematic-Thank You!
  2. I'm wanting to add some additional light on the back of my 2023 2500 AT4. So, I've purchased a CURT (56584) 7way T with a 5way plug as well a set of Rough Country 6" slim light bars (97026B) for a side by side. My thoughts were to add the 7way T so I didn't have to cut or tap into any factory wires and then wire the lights to the 5way reverse wire. But after getting the lights from Rough Country today, I'm a bit confused on how I can do this. The light bars come with a wiring harness that includes a relay, two wires plugs for each light, a battery +/- leads and a on/off switch (which I don't want since I don't want to turn them on/off by switch but when the truck is in reverse). Any suggestions on how I could make this work?
  3. I test drove a 2016 Silverado with the new Off Road Sport Package today, and I really like it. I asked at the dealership if there's a bed cover that is compatible with the sport bar, bu nobody had an answer - anyone know any different? It will help me decide whether or not to get the dealer-installed sport bar or not, since the bed cover is more important for me than the sport bar and associated lights. Thanks.
  4. Have 4 - 300 watt light bars on my roof rack and 4 - 103 watt cree’s on the winch mount. Decided to run all the wiring to a central location vs mix and match I did over time. So purchased a 6 rocker switch panel with 3 12V outlets, double row. Went back-and-forth a week trying to think in my head where I wanted to mount it to make it easily accessible, as I live in the mountains and when oncoming traffic is coming I need to be able to shut them off immediately! I knew overhead was the best place but didn’t want to go through the trouble. However now that it’s done it really wasn’t that much of an issue at all. I cut the sunglass holder 3/4 of the way out and it only over fills the entire consul by about a 1/4 inch. If I hadn’t already bought this panel and knew today was the only day I could do the project for a few weeks, I would have waited and not used the 3 outlets and just went with a single row panel of 6 (8 best) rocker switches as that would’ve been very neat, clean and looked much more custom! For anyone looking to do it, the absolute best looking would be 8 rocker switches on a single row panel for an absolute perfect fit! But I was impatient and wasn’t going to toss $50 out the door for the panel I had so wound up force fitting into the console. This doesn’t look horrible and I think I’ll be able to live with it but if it gets the best of me and my OCD, I can always order a new console with the 8 switches as the wiring is already there and would be a simple project. Any questions feel free to ask! I’ll post pictures shortly.
  5. Hey all, So as the title states I'm trying to find and install a light bar behind the grille on my 21 Sierra. I was curious if anyone has done this before and has any pointers or tips to point me in the right direction. Ideally a solid light bar 30 - 40 inches is optimal, however fairly bright 6 inch light bars that would fit on either side of the GMC logo would work as well. Not sure what a good lumen rating would be for a light bar, but it should be sufficient to illuminate a highway at night as there are no streetlights or towns for 400 km roughly and seeing wildlife early is essential. I appreciate any assistance in advance anyone can provide.
  6. So i finally pulled the trigger and installed a light bar on my 2019 Trailboss. I wanted a bumper mount, but refused to drill holes. SoAfter looking all over ZROADZ was the only mounting option i could find. So I bought these ZROADZ mounts https://zroadz.com/i-23909931-2019-2021-chevrolet-silverado-1500-front-bumper-top-led-bracket-to-mount-30-inch-curved-led-light-bar-pn-z322282.html#!submodel%3DLT TRAIL BOSS||model%3DSILVERADO 1500||make%3DCHEVROLET||year%3D2019 and this Rough Country 30” Curved bar light. https://www.roughcountry.com/30-inch-curved-led-light-bar-72930blkdrl.html The install for the mounts and light was very easy. the ZROADZ link above has a pdf with installation instructions, but it mounts to the bumper mounting bolts. The Rough Country light bar has a very high quality wiring harness and i didn’t want to mess with that and shorten it up, so the excess is taped and hidden behind the fender. There is an accessory “port” where the trucks wiring goes through the firewall, so getting wires through was a cake walk. Just cut the end of the rubber piece off. I took the switch plug aport pushed it through and put plug back on. There is a black plastic mounting box for one of the vehicle control modules you will have to remove to reach the wire on the inside. It is held on with two nuts and comes off easily. I ran the switch wiring behind the console and up through steering column. Its a temporary location until i can find a good solution. I would really like to use one of the blanks in the center console. The light bar itself is crazy bright and can’t believe i went this long without it. My only complaint and its me being picky, is that the light bar sticks out a bit further that i had hoped. And that is only because the RC light bar is no where near as deep as others i have seen. Its about an inch shallower than the light bars on my ATV. If it was like other light bars, you probably wouldn’t even notice. I wanted to post a bunch of images to show the install, but it only allows a few so here is a link to a google photos album. https://photos.app.goo.gl/eKYFVvY9ij9ZnDfEA I hope this helps, if anyone has a questions or wants other pics. Let me know.
  7. So the answers I found online all resulted in cutting the active shutters to get this to work so I devised another way. I’m still not happy with the upper bar mounting which is two bars connected to the light but it is mounted and works great. The hardest part of finding a LED light bar that isn’t deep. The one I found on eBay is about the size of an Apple Watch when you look at it from the side. The bracket was just a piece of aluminum angle cut to fit (40”) and painted black. I used 2 of the three holes for the active shutters with a longer button type bolt, spacer, and lock washer. You will need to use spacer to clear the active shutters and to adjust the placement for the light bars. Cost wise I probably spent about $150 total.
  8. A couple of weeks ago I saw an ad or post from Battle Born Off-Road about a behind the grill light bar for the 2019 Silverado. I was quite interested because I have read about problems putting a light bar behind the grill on these new models because of the active shutters in front of the radiator on these trucks. I had a behind the grill light bar on my 2016 Sierra and the extra light really helps on some of the dark areas I roam... I was quite disappointed to find that I may not be able to have the same thing on my 2019 Silverado RST. So Battle Born Off-Road posted an add for a set-up made by Baja Designs. It incorporated their S8 20 inch light bar, a wiring harness and mounting brackets. I inquired about the kit and if it would actually work. These guys called the manufacturer and confirmed it, so I pulled the trigger. The S8 light bar is awesome and it has a pretty slick amber accent light built in. This 20 inch bar really pumps out the light and has focused lenses on the bar. Installation was quite easy and after I got the grill off it took about an hour. The only week part of the kit is the directions in terms of removing the grill on the Silverado... If you are looking for a behind the grill light bar for the Silverado, this kit should top your list. sorry for the picture quality, but it's all I have at the moment.
  9. Looking for help form anyone who has the factory light bar for a Chevy Silverado, any light bar, where they have no need for the optional piece that wires to the factory lights. So here's the story. I bought the light bar and hard it installed on my truck but didn't buy the lights at the same time. 6 months later I purchased the factory lights which states all wiring hardness parts included... minus the portion that comes with the light bar. (Worst packaging design ever) Once the dealership noticed the part wasn't there they asked me for it. It also turned out the tech who installed the light bar noted that they gave me back the box with the section of the wiring harness in it. I am not sure if they noted it, but it's a big box and I threw it away. (The box, which may have had the part in it) So I ask the dealership to order the missing portion which turns out Chevy doesn't sell individually. So now I have 2k worth of parts with lights that won't work. I am currently fighting it out for two months with GM support but that is not going well either. Their suggest, but the 1k dollar light bar so you can get the 2 dollar part. In the attached diagram it's section 8 in the light bar kit which wires up the break light. So for anyone else doing what I did, a warning, make sure to check the box... even a lightbar box for wiring bits and beware trying to get the part via GM directly. Any help will make my Christmas bright. Also, wiling to pay 100$ for the part and toss in 12 months of XBox live! Help make Bessie look pretty
  10. Looking to put an aftermarket Led Light Bar on the roll bar of my 2016 All Terrain X. Has anyone attempted this yet? I noticed the roll bar is wired from the factory for the GM accessory off road lights. Looking to see if anyone knows what fuse I should tap into and what wire for the fuse, assuming its already wired to a relay. Thoughts??
  11. Has anyone ever placed a light bar into the front bumper? I would like to know if placing a light bar would block too much air flow to the cooler. If anyone has placed a light bar as shown, did it result in a cooling problem?
