  1. I’m trying to install new front end parking sensors to my 2016 GMC Sierra like @pgamboa on his YouTube video. Only not sure what todo with the front bumper, I’m trying to save money and not have to buy a new one with the sensor holes since mine current one is in excellent condition. Does anybody know how can I get the layout for the holes for exact placement and size? I figured I can drill them out myself but I’ve already looked everywhere online and can’t find anything on this. My last option would be go find a truck and physically measure them out, can anyone help?
  2. I have a 2017 Midnight Edition Z71 Tahoe. Great truck! I'd be interested in mods people have made to this truck. Particularly, has anyone blacked out the remaining chrome (side window moldings, grill, and headlight frames)? If so, how? Are there replacement parts available for this? Thank you
  3. asking for recommendations for bolt-ons to give more power to my 1993 silverado 2500. Going to start using it to tow a travel trailer. It already has the factory tow package. It's a 5.7L [350] V-8. I've already upgraded the exhaust; thinking headers and a cold-air intake . . . any other suggestions?
  4. I was hoping y’all could help me on my decision. I have a 2019 custom trail boss 5.3 with AFM 6 speed. I called the local dealership here and asked how my warranty would be effected if I disable the AFM. They told me “as long as that tune didn’t cause the damage of whatever i bring the truck in for all is well.” So they recommended me to a local tuner here in town which was surprising. I called him and he said to disable my AFM it would cost around 500. I do know about the range device but I don’t want to to deal with the battery issues it can cause if you mistakenly leave it plugged in. My other option is the hand held tuners such as a diablo. I have zero experience with them but I am going to put in a cold air intake and flow master 44 exhaust in the future. Would my best bet be the Diablo tuner to disable the AFM and use it to adjust my truck to my other mods or go with the professional tuner?
  5. Has anyone ever got a custom tune to delete the AFM on their truck? I contacted my dealership about it and they gave me a local tuners number. I understand that it could possibly void my warranty if deleting the AFM causes a problem. But has anyone deleted their AFM and had issues? As well what cost should I expect to see to have a tuner delete the AFM.
  6. Hey guys and gals I was hoping y’all could answer a question of mine. I currently own a 2019 Silverado trail boss with the 5.3 and 6 speed transmission. A mechanic told me the transmission is a ticking time bomb if I do any performance mods. Such as a cam swap and tune. So I explained my plan for the future. Cold air intake, flow master exhaust, headers, tune and cam swap. He said if I do any of the big changes to the engine the tranny may go out. The reason why is because the stock transmission was only made to handle the stock HP and TQ. Have any of y’all had an issue like this after some big performance mods?
  7. You know you’ve done it. The questionable mod. The cheesie accessory. If it’s over the top, it belongs here. Little dog with blinker eyes? Giant emblems? Ridiculous paint? Goofy wheels wider than your tires?Trash can lid subs? Cursive writing in your tint? Welcome home. Let’s not forget performance mods... Garbage can lid hood scoop? Chrome stacks? Grandma’s emphysema O2 tank injection? We got you. Let’s see them all. There is NO SHAME too great. You know you’ve got a fin in the garage somewhere. “We’re all about the downforce” If you show me yours... I’ll show you mine. Heck, I’ll even start. Late 1960’s fender emblem. I removed the plastic and drilled the radiator support so it would sit flush. Yup, I suck. ”But, but, I’m proud of my engine, honey.” “The guy’s all think it’s cool”. She shook her head so hard, I thought the marbles would rattle out her ears. She’s got no Tegrity.
  8. Anyone know if it’s easy/ possible to re-route the task lights on the mirrors so that they work regardless of the vehicle being in park? Thanks
  9. Hi all, I am a relatively new member to the forums and a first time truck owner. I've had my truck for about 2 years now and finally decided it was time to upgrade my baby. After months of researching, I decided to start off with a leveling kit, wheels, tires and rode on that for about 8000 miles before I saved up enough to do a lift. As it stands, I decided to go with the 4 inch BDS lift kit with the fox shocks upgrade. I narrowed my choices to Fabtech and BDS after tons of reading on this forum and the conclusion I came to for the price points, BDS made more sense and appears to be more spot on with the suspension geometry. Given that I am no expert, I could be wrong on that, so definitely don't quote me. The shop that did my install is an authorized BDS retailer and as a result, they prefer installing BDS kits on their trucks. One thing I noticed is that most people try to jump up to the coilovers right out of the gates in the name of preserving ride quality and Im here to say that you don't need to do that. Even the guy at the shop told me that it wasn't necessary to do and it doesn't guarantee that you will enjoy that ride quality. I was in that same boat until I decided to go ahead and try out what BDS has to offer before I spend more money on the kit itself. Ride Quality My experience of driving my truck pre-level and post-level - I felt no difference in the drive itself except some amount of additional harshness going over speed bumps. At that point, I expected that amount of harshness, in fact I expected worse based on reading what people had to say about how leveling kits ride. My experience of driving my truck after going from the leveling kit to the 4" lift - the ride is absolutely beautiful. Having driven a friends Yukon Denali, I can say that the ride of the truck is slightly floaty on the road similar to how the denalis ride, yet still very connected (not sure if that makes sense to anyone else but me). I absolutely love the way the truck rides and I feel that it's on par with stock, if not a little more insulated with the added suspension travel that absorbs some of the bumps and imperfections of the road. As it stands, I have driven with the kit for about 450 miles thus far and I have zero intentions of adding the coilovers to the setup. (500 mile suspension re-torquing coming up soon) Another added point of comfort for me is if my ride quality does deteriorate for some reason and the coilovers become a necessity, getting rid of the front shocks is not like throwing away an expensive pair of shocks. I also potentially have the option of adding kings in the event I ever need to go down that route... I hope that for someone out there, this helps make a decision on the kits with the plethora of information available and I'm happy to answer questions about this lift. Daily Drivability With this being my first lifted truck and first truck to begin with, I was really concerned about how drivable the vehicle would be compared to stock. The only difference I notice regarding drivability is making a turn when the wheel is at full lock in either direction feels like there is more turning radius involved, but hasn't been an issue. The bed and the bed steps are still very reachable / usable - I'm 5'8". The sidesteps are a little bit taller to get up to than before but it's not a pain in the ass or to the point where I hate the truck or my decision - I'm going to be keeping an eye out for a good deal on articulating running boards from AMP or RBP eventually. For anyone who enjoys driving fast - I haven't felt powerloss in the vehicle, especially being that mine is a 6.2L. I did definitely notice that there are a few moments where shifts take longer, but Im sad to say I need to address an issue that involves the torque converter and creates a shudder when accelerating as though you're driving across rumble strips but that's a different topic for a different time. It drives fast, feels stable, and is fun as hell. Fuel Economy Impact I honestly haven't had any impact on my fuel consumption since I began upgrading items on the vehicle. This might change over time, but as it stands I get about 20-22 MPG highway and a range of 13-16 MPG City based on traffic levels. Other Notes - 2017 GMC Sierra SLT Premium Plus Package with Z71 Package | 6.2L V8 - Denali Cluster Retrofit - 33" Nitto Ridge Grapplers - SCA Performance 20x9 Black Widow Wheels | 0 mm offset - Blacked out emblems - Rough Country Tri Fold Bed Cover - GM Borla Exhaust with Dual Outlets (There's actually a tilt downward in the exhaust because the dealer failed to correctly install them with the appropriate hangers to the frame - going to be corrected soon) - Black Chrome Exhaust Tips - Rear Wheel Spacers soon to come (BDS lifts push the front track width out, I want to even out the stance) - AMP Research power steps soon to come - Cold Air Intake soon to come Pictures
  10. Denali Cluster Retrofit - A Review. As I'm sure many other readers of this forum have done, I found myself going through some of the posts and checking out some cool things people here have done to their trucks. I happened to stumble on the Denali Cluster retrofit and from the moment I saw it, I had not stopped thinking about doing it. Being someone who opted for a non Denali truck but still paid a pretty penny, there was always a small itch in the back of my mind at the lack of a couple features that these trucks have compared to other lower priced vehicles with less prowess - the instrument cluster being so plain is one of them. After eventually deciding to scratch that itch, I got in touch with Chris from White Auto Media (WAMS | http://www.whiteautoandmedia.com) about the Denali Cluster retrofit. Now, there are several posts with a wealth of information about this (main one attached below) and if you are interested in doing this modification, I highly recommend you start there and understand everything there is about selecting the right cluster for your vehicles model year. After exchanging a few emails with Chris, he noted that I was able to have him source the cluster for me and take care of the programming. At the time, I was unable to locate the correct fitment of cluster for my vehicle and the sellers on eBay just seemed to be too sketchy, some had cracked plastic lens covers, and others just didn't provide enough information for the amount of money they were asking for. As a result, I went ahead and submitted my details to Chris via his website and ordered the cluster. It did take two weeks plus a handful of days for sourcing the cluster, programming it, and shipping it to my doorstep. Not only did Chris make it incredibly easy to do this modification, his kindness in sharing information about the entire process to ensure that I had the right fitment, right cluster, right programming, made this experience all the better. Once I got my hands on it, I was able to get it installed in my vehicle in about 10 minutes given the right driver to take out some 7mm bolts and a little bit of prying with my fingers. In the end, I have a fully functioning, slick looking, Denali Cluster. Install video: Phil Gamboa did a fantastic job documenting the install and how easy it was. My only deviation from the video instructions was not taking off the bottom panel where the hood release latch is located and I was safely able to install the cluster without breaking or scratching any components in the process. Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLq-VVcEL8I I attached a photo of my working dash to the post! I'm glad to have went this route and hopefully, I will find a way to give Chris my business again in the future! @GTPprix IMG_2532.HEIC
  11. I have a 2015 GMC Sierra and i do not like the look of the factory plastic fender guards and if you remove them it just reveals holes where the fender guard mounts up. Does anyone know if a set of fenders from a 2015 Silverado can be put on to a Sierra. And also the rear quarter panel?
  12. Alright so I have this idea and I don't know if its possible or not. Camaro's have an option where you can have illuminated door panels, I would like to do something similar in 2017 silverado. I have already added interior door piping that matches the exterior color of the truck. I would like to take that same concept but use EL wire instead of the silver piping to create illuminated door panels. I dont want to do too much but I think it would add a little more to the interior and be different. My thoughts are to get some EL wire with the welting attached to it and place it where the current piping is. But the part I am on the fence about would be what to wire it to. These doors have the lights in the handles that dim with the main dimmer for all of the dash. I was wondering if it could be wired into the circuit that way it would be the same brightness as all the other illumination on the dash. But if you have ever messed with EL wire before, it runs of AC current. You need a 12v driver for them to operate off of a 12v system. Would it be better to run 1 inverter that would power all 4 doors and then have to run the wire through the whole cab or purchase 4 smaller inverters and place them in behind the door panels. If I was to only use 1 inverter I could possibly connect it to the main dimmer switch instead of the doors circuit. But these lights should not pull alot of current so I'm unsure which would be the best way. In these picture on my door panel the silver line coming from where the window switch is, is the piping. Thats where the EL wire would go. If i used 1 driver i would need to use a 4 way splitter to go to each door. I have attched a picture of multiple drivers, these things come in all different sizes. The driver i would use if I did 4 different inverters is used to power up to 2 meters of wire. The amount in would be powering would be way shorter then that and the inverter is about 1 inch by 2 inch, so very small. The 1 big inverter option is pretty good size and also is rated to power up to 15 meters. This should be relatively cheap 4 drivers = $28 EL wire= $15 connectors= $15 so about $60 I believe I have found a color that matches the chevy color, the aqua color is pretty dang close if not identical. For the sierra guys, they make red as well. You would need connectors so you can cut the EL wire to length for the door, It is pretty easy to wire the connector to the EL wire. Most use a 2 pin JST wire connection and you can get a kit with 10 connectors and heat shrink for like $10. I am just wondering if anybody has thought of this or done this and how. If you have any experience with EL wire please chime in.
  13. During a dark and rainy 3 am jumping of another truck, it became clear there is no lighting in the engine compartment of my 2018 Silverado. The previous truck had a light under the hood and the generation prior to that had a removable work light that could be placed on the locations. Not to mention that truck also had jumper cables builtin to jump Fords. So my question is has anyone added lighting under the hood? if so how?
  14. Hey everyone I am new to this whole "modifying" your truck thing. I bought a 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 All-Terrain 5.3L. The only thing I have done is put a K&M CAI in and am currently looking at a leveling kit but want to upgrade to 33" or 35" (if possible) tires. I also want to hear everyone's opinions on modifications they have done to their truck that didn't break the bank and their favorite ones. Pictures would be beneficial too. Thank you in advance!
  15. 2019 Chevy 1500 High Country Mods: Dealer Installed Cat-back Exhaust System Upgrade and Cold Air Intake. Next up: window tinting, better tires and a lift. Looking for a good retractable tonneau cover now as well.
  16. My truck is a 2018 Silverado, I've added towing mirrors with Phils custom cables and did the diode mod for the cargo light in reverse. I recently scheduled my truck for it's first oil change.I got to thinking, about mods and the effects on the factory warranty. Obviously I'm not going to remove the mirrors to take it in. but could easily pull the diode, Does any of this stuff void the warranty? Just curious what every one else's thoughts are on mods and warranty's?
  17. Just got my new Silverado recently and was wondering if anyone can suggest a few truck modification shops/mechanics in Ontario? I've seen a lot of good ones in the US but can't seem to find any in Canada, maybe I'm just not looking hard enough. I bought a few items from Action Car and Truck but they won't install anything that isn't bought from them. I live in a building so I'm unable to do a lot myself and want to know if there are any good repair shops/modification shops in the Ontario area. Not really interested in going to the dealer as they have screwed me over before (poor repair & high prices) and the mechanics there don't seem to know what they are doing and couldn't give two s**** about your truck (there are good ones but they are rare and you can't really book a particular mechanic). Thanks y'all, Victor
  18. Hey guys, I'm gonna install CarPro Cquartz UK 3.0 on my truck today. I've owned the truck for less than a month and can already see slight scratches so I want to hurry up and get it done. Do you know if i can apply on the chrome bumper and trim? Here is the process i plan on following: 1) Foam wash 2) Clay bar 3) Polish 4) Use an IPA (Carpro Eraser) 5) Apply Cquartz 6) finish with Carpro reload (silica sealant) I've looked up a few tutorials and tips but maybe i missed something. I'm in Texas and it's been pretty humid lately here in Houston. I'm concerned about the "flashing" times. Some say it takes 20 sec's, others say 5 mins... Can anyone elaborate? I'm using these products: Cquartz - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D4NXNTV/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Microfimer towels- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0166U4PVC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Clay bar- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002U2V1Y/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Iron remover- https://www.amazon.com/CarPro-Remover-Liter-Sprayer-Cherry/dp/B004UMB7WY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1533828475&sr=8-1&keywords=carpro Eraser- https://www.amazon.com/CarPro-Eraser-Intense-Polish-Cleanser/dp/B00FY0XY1S/ref=pd_sim_263_4?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00FY0XY1S&pd_rd_r=cca84e2e-9be8-11e8-aae5-4d17ba778b12&pd_rd_w=6R1Ez&pd_rd_wg=1hLrQ&pf_rd_i=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=a180fdfb-b54e-4904-85ba-d852197d6c09&pf_rd_r=HBCCJ2E4W9BSW7MNNW4N&pf_rd_s=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_t=40701&psc=1&refRID=HBCCJ2E4W9BSW7MNNW4N&dpID=41o-QvdUg5L&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=detail
  19. Hey folks, This is my video of MODEST upgrades for the L86. I'm new to posting as well as video blogging so I apologize for the quality and such. I'd like to start making some videos on HOW TO's for this particular engine. I've done almost everything to this thing in my driveway. so to the weekend/garage warriors who want more let me know what you want to see and I will build a video and post it. Bolt on's or porting, oil changes w/e let me know.
  20. Just finished up with this and would appreciate any feedback...took about 3 days, alot of sanding and modifying. I ordered vision 55 and BF Goodrich tire, should be here by the 20th. Also a 3" level for the front. Hopefully purchasing a CAI this week. Thanks! Rob
  21. Hi all, I'm new to the forums as well as new to trucks. Just about a year ago I got a 2017 GMC Sierra SLT and I'm interesting in some upgrades. I need some help determining the pros and cons of various things as well as if there's anyone with experience who wants to weigh in with things they recommend, dos and don'ts, or even things they would have done differently. I've seen a lot of the forums and I hope im not replicating other posts, but I can't seem to find any feedback on items related to the build I want to do in addition to the fact that being a first time truck owner, I don't really have much to compare various things to. Top priorities for me: ride quality and comfort (lots of highway driving), looks, and function. I've broken up what I want to do into 3 "steps" (based on finances and affordability timeframe). Money is important, but if I have to wait a little longer to have strong, durable, good quality components, I would rather have it that way. Step 1 (next 3-4 months): Level the truck - leaning towards fox 2.0 coil-overs to keep ride quality. I've seen a lot about how spacers diminish ride quality (please correct me if im wrong) 305/55/r20 Nitto Ridge Grapplers - I want do some mild off-roading and trail riding, nothing too crazy, but at the end of the day this is a daily driver and I want a quiet ride. (I have no clue how much louder the tire would be compared to stock, although most say that it is pretty quiet) 20x9 Fuel Maverick rims or SCA performance rims (https://www.scaperformance.com/gmc-products/sca-performance-20-inch-wheel-gloss-black-with-milled-spoke-accents) Step 2 (maybe within the next 8-12 months): GM installed 6.2 Cat back (I'm a GM employee and the part discount is a plus for me) AMP Research Steps Step 3 (maybe within the next 1-2 years): 4 inch BDS lift with the upgraded fox coil-overs with the reservoirs (non-dsc) Fender flares - haven't decided between bushwhacker, rough country (more lower profile), or the brawny SCA performance ones (https://www.scaperformance.com/gmc-products/2016-sca-gmc-1500-pocket-style-fender-flares) Any advice or thoughts on a build out like this would be appreciated! Ride quality and comfort is a huge one for me because I don't want to have buyers remorse since I've not been in many lifted or upgrade trucks, so my only metric of comparison is to a stock vehicle. Thanks in advance!
  22. Hi everyone, first time posting. I've noticed since I purchased my 2015 5.3l chevy suburban that the average miles per gallon is low. I dont rev my engine, I always keep the screen up to monitor my fuel economy as i drive. I seem to always avg 15-16mpg road and 17-18hwy.... Does this seem normal??? I put in regular unleaded from krogers and costco. I have 43k miles on my vehicle Live in an area without high terrain. Regular suburbia. Something just does not seem right. Any input, help, modifications, changes required to improve? - yours truly A concerned chevy owner! Thank you!!!!

  24. So I had a few after market parts installed on my 2015 Silverado: Flowmaster 40 series, Volant cai and finally some Gibson performance headers (heat wrapped and all). I didn't have any issues until the headers were installed. Shortly after leaving the shop my truck isn't shifting correctly and my engine light is on. I figured over heating was the culprit and that I should let it cool down before taking it back out for some fun. Hours later the problem is persistent and my truck is down shifting at too high of rpms causing it to jerk and stall for a second. I also feel like there's some power loss. I plugged in my Diablo inTune i2 and it showed the error code being a 3rd cylinder misfire and rough idle. I checked all of the spark plugs, the wires and all the bolts but I can't see an issue with any of them; all the plugs tested good and all the bolts are secured. Does anyone have any insight as to what the problem could be?
  25. Hey guys, I was curious to hear what you all have done on your truck for better gas mileage and what you think the best grade of gas is to use for gas mileage. I have a 2017 Silverado custom and get about 19 average.
