  1. Picked up my Custom Trail Boss yesterday and I really like the truck, mechanically speaking. My biggest beef is with the interior storage options. Specifically the fact the center console doesn't have a storage compartment even though the thing is huge and the owner's manual shows there should be a storage compartment. There's not a storage compartment under the seatback either, despite what appears to be a HUGE empty cushion sitting there. I have a Z71 Suburban, so I know I'm spoiled but this is crazy how few places there are to store stuff in the cab. I'm hoping a better center console can be swapped out, but I'm worried about what options may exist with the rear seat power and air vents. Let me know if anyone comes across anything that can be added or modified to increase the utility for the front seat passengers. Thanks!
  2. I need to add a second battery to my 2020 Silverado CC. In previous years, it was simple. There was even a place. I don't see a single option or place to fit one. I called my local dealer multiple times to ask, but they never call back. Anyone else figured out a way to do this? Where is a good spot?
  3. Looking for more ideas on how to spruce up the Custom model front end but I'm having a hard time finding accessories specifically for the Custom model. Any ideas or help appreciated! I've currently added Fabtech 3" Stealth suspension lift, 35's, Fuel Titan 20x9, Phillips Diamond Vision Halogen HID highs and lows(very impressed), purchased but not installed yet the Daytime running lamp LED strip for above the Lowbeam lights.
  4. Has anyone taken a Custom Trail Boss and done the LT Trail Boss fog lights on it? I am looking for a plug and play kit if there is one out on the market. I'm trying not to source every single individual part from GM. I'm pretty sure I would have to go get the BCM reprogrammed if I'm not mistaken.
  5. Posting my a friend that just bought a 2020 Silverado 1500 custom. Can a power inverter be added to the bed and cab? The truck did not come with it.
  6. Just got these custom decal emblems for my WeatherTech liners, and they are LiT! If anyone is interested here is the link to the eBay seller I got them from. https://www.ebay.com/itm/114202843168

  9. Hey, love this site, new owner of a TrailBoss custom and wish I would have gotten the LT with more little bells and whistles, but I was too cheap! Now I'm trying to manipulate as many functions and additional features as possible. I'm replacing the center console thanks to this site, now I'm trying to get text messaging from my limited infotainment. Any ideas? I'm anxiously hoping for many!! Thanks guys
  10. Greetings, First time poster here....I've used many a fishing and hunting forums but never a truck forum....so please forgive my automotive ignorance Had some trouble with my passenger side headlight last week (drivers side was fine).....it was on again/off again... hoped it was the bulb, replaced it...no luck. Headlight is still out. Checked fuse #58 (3-pin) HDLP RT/ LT (full disclosure: NEVER saw a 3 pin blade fuse before) it was fine, however, it doesn't protect the headlamps it protects the high beams......which leads me to my next important bit of info... I'm the third owner.......the original owner tricked out this truck with custom front lights, rear lights, LED bars, etc, etc..... ton of stuff, truck looks great, but I had nothing to do with it. If it was my boat I'd be all over it. So I'm hoping one of you guys or gals can help me out. Got a hold of the original owner.......he bought the headlamps (see pic) from DT Moto on eBay...they're halogen lamps ...that's all he remembers . On the way to work today the other headlight went out YIKES! ....up here in NH it's pretty damn dark at 5:30 am ....there are a total of 5 bulbs in each front light and the headlights are the only one out. So I'm hoping someone here might get me going in the right direction? Relay? where might I find that? Should fuse #58 (engine compartment) HDLP RT/ LT protect the high beams? Seems like it should be for the head lamps? I love the truck, it's my 2nd Sierra 1500, my first one was very good to me. I get a lot of compliments and questions.....most of which I have to reply to with , "Ummm, I don't know." lol ANY questions or comments please feel free..... Thanks, Jim
  11. Hey everybody, Just wanted to check in again and let you all know about another exciting service we're happy to be offering... The Denali Cluster Upgrade! Many of you have requested this upgrade and I'm happy to report we have successfully completed the mod. If you're interested in this, you'll need to know a few things. Acquire a new or used GMC Denali cluster. This can be a Sierra or a Yukon cluster. (Please note: If you buy your cluster 2nd hand, DO NOT plug it into your vehicle.) Diesel/Gas: The cluster will need to match some aspects of your current vehicle. For example, if you have a gas spec vehicle you'll need to find a cluster that has an RPM gauge that goes to 6000rpm. If you have a diesel spec vehicle (2500, 3500) you'll need to find a cluster that has an RPM gauge that goes to 5000rpm. Both shown below. MPH/KPH: We can do BOTH USA and Metric market clusters. If you live in the USA, you'll want to get a cluster that has a speedometer that goes up to 140. If you live in a metric country, you'll want a cluster that goes to 200. Both options shown below. COLOR: If you have a GMC and you want to keep your RED color theme, you'll want to find a 2016 GMC Denali cluster. If you have a Silverado, have done a blue conversion, or have upgraded your HMI to the newer blue theme and you're looking for a BLUE gauge theme, you'll want a 2017-2018 Denali cluster. Android Auto/Carplay: For all of you Android Auto users wanting the use of your volume and track selection flippers back, this fixes it!!! once installed you'll once again have access to your flippers. This also allows for the long press of the voice button on the steering wheel to activate Google Assistant as well as Siri for Apple Carplay. Year Matching: There has been a lot of talk that all modules that are installed into the vehicle need to be of the same year. After extensive testing we have found this to be mainly false. As long as the modules are of the same generation you should be A-OK for the install. That means if you have a 2.0 HMI vehicle (2014-2015) you can use a 2014-2015 Denali cluster. If you have a vehicle with a 2.5 HMI (Carplay Enabled, 2016-2018) you can use any 2016-2018 cluster so long as it matches your vehicle specs as mentioned above. And if you have a 2014-2015 and would like to upgrade to a blue themed cluster while adding Android Auto / Carplay, we are more than happy to facilitate the upgrade all at once. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or are interested in getting this mod done to your own vehicle. Thanks for watching and enjoy the demo.
  12. Hey guys, I'm back with another very exciting feature to reveal. It's been requested by many of you that I release a Video in Motion mod for the 2.5HMI for quite some time now. Well, I'm happy to say I've finally cracked it and I'm happy to offer this service for the loyal viewers of this forum. First of all, let's talk basics. If you have a 2014-2016 you'll notice you can play video but only while in park. And if you have a 2017 or a 2018 GM vehicle you'll notice you cannot play video at all! Well, I have solved this problem with a 2 for 1 solution. Regardless of your year between 2014-2018, I am happy to offer Video in Motion and Video Enabling for ALL 2014-2018 GM models Please, do not hesitate to contact me if you'd like this done. Special forum pricing will be given as a thank you towards everyone who has supported me and has encouraged me along the way. I would not have been able to do this without you guys. Thanks for putting your faith in me. Enjoy the demo, and like always, if you're interested - send me a PM. Until next time... -Mag *Edit* - For those of you who are curious, this allows videos to be played through USB. We will be adding other input options in the future. This will also allow full navigation controls in nav as well as texting and keyboard use which is usually restricted while driving. And this should be a given but this is for off-road or passenger use only. Please let me know if you have any more questions!
  13. Hello new to this site. was wondering if anyone had done a power antenna conversion on an express van, and if so where did you buy it? thanks.
  14. I haven't seen anyone with official numbers. displaying the height of our trucks so I decided to pull it in the garage and measure up a couple of points. Keep in mind, this is a 2019 Trail Boss Custom, Z71, Crew Cab, Standard Bed, with ~3000miles. Everything is completely stock and the tank was 95% full. I measured the following heights; - all 4 corners(at the fender) measured at the center of the wheel - front diff (lowest point) - rear diff (lowest point) - front shroud/bumper (lowest point) I've taken the measurements twice, once SETTLED and once UNSETTLED. To better define the terms, the settled measurements were taken by simply driving the truck in the garage, and measuring. I weigh around 200lbs ( seems to matter as there was a little lean tot he driver side). The unsettled measurements were taken by, lifting the vehicle, front and back, just to the point where the tires were off, then slowly letting the jack down and removing it. SETTLED Measurements; DS front - 39 1/4" DS rear - 41 3/8" PS front - 39 1/2" PS rear - 41 3/8" front diff - 13" rear diff - 9" bumper - 13 5/16" UNSETTLED Measurements; DS front - 39 7/8" DS rear - 41 1/2" PS front - 40 1/8" PS rear - 41 3/8" front diff - 13 3/8" rear diff - 9" bumper - 14" I've added all the pictures to this gallery ----> I've attached a couple of critical photos I think everyone should be aware of.
  15. Some plates are just downright funny and others really mean something to the owner while others leave people wondering WTH as an example, mine has 420 in it and I’m not a pot head
  16. Hey crew! As many of you know, I've been hard at work on these HMI's for about 9 months now ever since I purchased my GMC Sierra last summer. I have since started programming modules for many of you right here on these forums and I could not be more grateful for all of your support and kind words. A feature that has been requested from me many times over has been custom boot animations/logos/sounds and I am very happy to announce that after a lot of research and many nights of testing and programming I have finally achieved this task! Please see the video below for a small demonstration. If any of you are interested in getting this done to your vehicle equipped with a 2.5 HMI please send me a PM and we can discuss this upgrade! Also, Please post ANY programming requests you'd like done on your truck and I'll do my best to make it a reality. P.S. - This is just the beginning, there's lots more to come. Stay tuned... -Mag
  17. Looking at crew cab short bed 4x4’s with the V8’s. I just can’t wrap my head around not having low range so it’ll either be a Z71 or a Trail Boss. Been watching prices and I’m seeing Custom Trail Boss trucks starting to get close to the prices of the LT. As in within a grand or even less. Anyone bought a Custom and regret it? I have a 2011 Silverado 1500 4x4 and my wife has a 2017 Yukon 4x4. Both have the 6L80 transmission and hers has the Ecotec 5.3 V8. Very happy with that engine and transmission combo and even with less power my ‘11 moves and drives well with the 3.42 gears. Will I miss anything with a Custom instead of a regular LT Z71? 6 spd vs 8 spd? Gas mileage? Something else?
  18. I would like to install a custom USB hub for my truck. I am fixing this thing up for camping trips and we will definitely be needing some juice. Can anyone direct me to some products? Truck: 1992 GMC 1500
  19. Hey so im looking for all black emblems for my 2018 silverado z71 ltz, i was wondering if anyone knows where i can get these or how to make this happen? Ive found “silverado ltz” in all black but cant find the side “z71” on the doors, the all black bow ties or the small all black z71 in the grill..
  20. Hello. I have a reg cab 03 2500 Chevy. It is tinted with probably 35% smoke. But here it is....... About around the turn of the century I would see quite a few older truck reg. cabs with some image on the back glass. Sometimes it was a scenic background or it could be a flag or any other landscape/background the owner wanted. What do you call these? Were they see-through like those police interrogation room mirrors? How come the seem unpopular these days?
  21. Hi All - Wondering if anyone has had the chance to peel apart and look into the 16-18 silverado headlights. I would like to pull mine out and add some style to it. I have only ever customized motorcycle lights. I dont want to just for fun tear apart a 800 dollar light quite yet...unless nobody has done it yet. Ideas - Would like to add halo/angel eyes. Add demon eyes. Remove amber reflectors...possibly more Cheers!
  22. Zane & Josh Merva GM-Trucks.com Ready to make your truck stand out in the crowd? Swap your stock Chevy or GMC emblem in for something that really stands out, a color matched billet aluminum insert. We install and review a set from American Brother Designs. Product Reviewed & Cost: American Brother Designs GMC Color Matched Billet Emblem Inserts: $124.99 w/free shipping What is it: A solid billet aluminum insert painted to match most GM stock colors and also available in chrome, flat black, and multiple camo variations. Available for 2007+ Chevrolet bowtie and GMC letter replacements. Tested On: 2011 GMC Sierra All-Terrain Extended Cab SLT Here is how we installed a black color matched insert on our 2011 GMC Sierra: Wash vehicle We always like to start with a clean surface to work around. By removing any dirt and grime you reduce the chance of scratching your vehicle while working around and on it. Cut out and apply guide letters ABD includes a template for each kit that you can use to help remove your truck’s stock insert. We then cut out each letter and taped it over our Sierra’s front GMC emblem. Drill out holes in the letters or bowtie After the template is in place we used the tip of a drill bit to mark each hole we’d be drilling. Starting slowly, we drilled holes in our emblem at the marked spots. We took special care to not drill too deeply. Carefully pry out the original insert If you have a 2014 and newer truck the purpose of drilling the emblems are to remove support tabs. If you have a 2013 and earlier truck, you’re simply weakening the emblem and the adhesive that holds it on. If your emblem is attached using adhesive, slowly pry away the insert pieces taking special care to not scratch the chrome surround. Clean the back Once the stock insert is removed we made sure the underlying surface was perfectly clean. That includes scraping any residue or glue away and thoroughly cleaning the surface with rubbing alcohol. This step is a pain in the behind, but the cleaner the surface the better the bond. Apply the new insert If it’s cold out use a hair dryer to warm up the billet inserts and the area where you’ll be applying them. Then carefully remove the new adhesive backing and apply the insert. Warm the entire surface and apply pressure for around a minute to properly bond the insert to the vehicle. Afterwards, wait 24-hours before washing to allow the 3M adhesive tape to properly bond. Our thoughts American Brother Designs aluminum inserts are an easy way to make your truck look different. Match your emblem to your truck’s stock paint or mix it up with another color, your pickup will immediately stand out as something different. We appreciated that the billet fit exactly. There were no ugly gaps and fit looks like it came from the factory. We also appreciated the black painted inserts matched our GMC's paint perfectly. A thick cut of billet fills the channel that the red jewel of the stock GMC lettering used to occupy for a flush finish. These inserts are also strong and will outlast the plastic grill they are surrounded by. While emblem covering decals may fade and wear, this aluminum insert will look like new for years to come. We personally like the look over the cheaper jeweled stock emblem. Color matched letters give our Sierra an unmistakable appearance on the road. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and we completed the project in about an hour. We love the new look. Pick up a set of ABD Billet Inserts in the GM-Trucks.com Store

  24. I just rolled over 30k miles on my cc4wd, '16 with the 5.3, and 8 speed. I have read more than a handful of people recommending getting a tune (usually when the warranty runs out)...so this is my first post about that...before I really start my research, I wanted to get some real life experiences and expectations... I get that i can make my truck run like a banshee...but I don't need a hot rod...I just want to get optimal power and optimal MPG under normal driving...I rarely tow anything...and I drive pretty conservatively... in my scenario...would you still recommend a tune? what can I expect to get out of one? is there any that are the best value, what about getting a tune off the shelf verses going to a shop and getting it done? if I lose any mpg's it probably wouldnt be worth it...so I need to at least stay the same or improve...so keep that in mind... any insight and opinions would be appreciated!
