What Have You Done With Your T1 Today ?????


Recommended Posts

Just finished installing my upfitter switches today and finished the hardwire of the radar detector.

 

Chose to use the new dash piece as the template and cut it in instead of tearing about everything. 

A sharp exacto knife makes it a breeze and well worth the time savings. Worse case i figured, I screw it up and then just replace anyhow. 

 

The biggest pain was getting the wire fished thru the fire wall, which knowing how to do it now it is a breeze.

Coat hanger made it so much easier.

I had it all wired in and then no power at the radar detector, switch lit up. Turns out, there are 2 loose blue wires in the new wiring loom...Once i realized this it was an easy fix and quick to wrap up.

Parts list:

84688687  Multi Switch (This is black, may need a different part # depending on your truck interior color)

84487354  Knee Bolster (This is black with push button start, may need a different part # depending on your truck color and start switch)

84497098  Harness

84524205  Battery Cable

84669070F Block Kit

 

Cheapest place i could find is GM Parts outlet. If you create an account, put everything in your shopping cart and leave it for a few hours, you might get a small discount code in your email. Talking less than $10 but something is better than nothing. 

 

 

Edit:

Installed factory power folding tow mirrors onto my LTZ that came with power folding safety mirrors (no camera).  So far the blind spot, power adjustment, and power folding work like factory.  When I press the task light it turns on the mirrors parking lights, and at night task lights will come on pike the puddle lamps did previously. 
 

I still need to order the door harness’ and see what lights will work after.

Air deflector removal and trail boss recovery hooks. I also cut and sanded the tabs where the bolts went, looks factory.

Got any pics where you did the sanding? I took my deflector off a while back but still have the tabs in place. Haven’t decided how I wanna handle it...

Couple of things to note, GMC mirrors are different than Chevrolet ones, that learned this because I bought 1 of each off eBay.  I was able to make it work, but the body lines are different.  Also mirrors from a HD truck will not work either, the wiring is too different, and our half ton trucks do not have the correct circuits.

 

Here’s a pic of how the mirror doesn’t line up, that piece of foam was just in there for test purposes.  I will be buying a silverado driver side when I find one.  This is the driver side GMC mirror part number.

Cut and sanded the tabs with the exception of the two tabs that support the plastic part of the bottom of the bumper. I did however paint the bolts black they were gray so now they don’t stick out like a sore thumb. The corners where it basically meets up with wheel well insert I just cut and sanded it to flow while leaving the eye hole there.
