Hey Forum - Any idea what the part number is for the puddle lamps on the bottom of the exterior mirrors? I have the heated/power mirror (not the larger tow mirror). Can't find anything on this at the moment. Anything aftermarket or better than stock would be good information too.
I found this listing, but it doesn't list the puddle lamp on the bottom: https://www.oempartsquick.com/oem-parts/gm-mirror-assembly-20979683?origin=pla&medium=super&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI4v-_3ozA3gIVxI2zCh06MgrgEAQYASABEgJbSfD_BwE
Hey everyone, got a question someone might be able to answer.
I've got a '14 Silverado 1500 WT. At the back under the bed on the driver side near the spare tire is a wire hanging down with no end. Originally thought it was a frame ground because the outer casing is black but today I took a pair of wire stripers and found that there are 3 thin wires inside of the black sheathing. They are Solid Red, Solid Yellow, and Solid Black. All lights on the truck work, the trailer lights all work when plugged in too.
Anyone have any idea what this could go to? I currently have it rolled up and ziptied to the frame. Thanks for any help.
I am trying to find out what exactly my max tow rating is. First off, I have believed since I owned the truck that it had 3.73 gears. I requested the build sheet from GM and turns out I actually have 3.08 gears (RPO code GU4). I also thought I had the heavy duty tow package (RPO code Z85), but the build sheet says I have the "Trailering Package (Special)(Reese Type Hitch)" which is RPO code Z82. The sticker on the drivers side says the weight of cargo and occupants should not exceed 1577 lbs. So, 7700lbs GVWR - 1577lbs cargo capacity = 6,123lbs curb weight?
According to the below site, the max towing capacity is 11,200lbs with 3.73 and max trailer tow, which is what I thought I had. With 3.08 gears and no max tow package, it is only 6,600 lbs, which is a huge difference keeping safety in mind. The guide does mention Z82 as the heavy duty package, but does not explicitly call Z82 the "Max Trailering Package". What i think is happening here is the Z82 is the Max Trailering Package on a Z71.

So, now that I am unsure of what exactly my tow rating is, I just want to confirm I know the correct limits of my truck.
Truck: 2014 Silverado Crew Cab, LTZ Z71, Short Box
RPO codes that may help:
GU4: Axle, Rear, 3.08 Ratio
JD9: Brake Vac Power, 17" Disc/Disc, W/VSES, 7700 LBS
JL1: Control, Integrated Trailer Brake
KC4: Cooling System, Engine Oil
KNP: Cooling System, Transmission, Heavy Duty
L83: Engine Gas, 8 CYL, 5.3L, SIDI VVT, AFM, E85 MAX, ALUM, GM
MYC: Transmission Auto 6SPD, HMD, 6L-80
Z82: Trailering Package (Special)(Reese Type Hitch)
Again, I have the full build sheet so just let me know if that would help you guys help me
Hey Forum - Do any of yall have results from running your L83 on a dyno? I plan on doing a Black Bear tune soon and was going to do before/after dyno results. Curious if anyone has results to post here that I can compare to.
My truck is a 2014 LTZ Z71 with the 5.3L and 3.73 gears (9.5in rear end) from the Max Trailer Tow package. I have a K&N CAI and a custom dual exhaust where the muffler and resonator were deleted.
FYI: I was reading this thread earlier. My truck is currently governed at the stock limit of 100mph. So, I assume it would still be safe to take on the dyno.
Have a custom mid-pipe I built to install an aftermarket muffler (Magnaflow 12909) in my 2015 2500hd 6.0 truck. I removed the muffler and went back to stock so have this left over. This makes a cleaner install and saves your mid pipe if you want to revert back to stock. The aftermarket mufflers don't have as much offset as factory and the factory mid-pipe has a offset in it that accounts for that. With this straight mid-pipe it works perfect with the less offset of the aftermarket muffler and allows everything to be installed level with the truck. Here is my post about the muffler with additional info:
I had this on a crew cab, 6.5' bed 4x4 truck. I'm sure other cab/bed configurations might need this lengthened or shortened but at least the hard part of the flange and hangers are done.
Asking $75 for this custom mid-pipe.
How it looked installed. muffler not included.
Factory muffler to show the drop offset in the original mid-pipe.
