    Headlamp Housing Defect?

    If you were going to do a retrofit, you should keep those housings and use them. The problem child bulb retainers would get removed, and the projectors fitted in their place.

    Headlamp Housing Defect?

    While I agree with @HARDTRAILZ , I am a bit biased so... :tongue: If you still have the lights off the truck, can you snap a pic of where the bulb seats? Maybe if you have clearance to get a screw driver in there, you can get the bulb retainers off the reflector bowl, and can add a rubber...

    Best ELM327

    I've had mine left plugged in since my old post here, and have never had any issues like that.

    What are you doing today?

    Decent day in the office. Few meetings here and there, some staff changes coming down the pipe. Enough work to keep busy when I feel like it. Currently half listening to a conference call, but mostly pricing out components to build a 2 post rack server, to put in my hall closet to replace the...

    What are you doing today?

    Lots of errands today. Filled up the EXT, picked up a prescription, hit the grocery store. Stopped by Mattress Firm to see if they had the Purple mattress line on the floor for me to try out. They did not, the salesman stated that they own the brand, so no other stores would have them...

    What did you do to your GMT today?

    Have had an odd rough idle issue when the engine is cold, for a while now. Meant to clean the throttle body last month when I did my winter maintenance but forgot, so got up early this morning to remedy that. In removing the TB from the intake, I figured out what the issue (most likely) was...

    What did you do to your GMT today?

    I got them off Ebay, that was forever ago. I searched for GM instrument cluster needles, and there were a ton of packages out there. Most had 2 big needles, and 6 smaller ones, so in our case there were leftovers. Just have to find the hub color, and needle color combo you want, and you're...

    What are you doing today?

    Today is looking to be even less productive than yesterday. In a holding pattern on a couple of good sized projects, waiting for feedback before further steps can be taken. Did a couple of quick procedural write ups with some screen shots to be included in a manual, so I'm calling it good for...

    What are you doing today?

    That happened to me a couple of times with yard waste. They'd take everyone else's on the block, but left mine there. :hissyfit: Yeah I've looked at those, cooling gel too, cuz I sleep hot. Came across the Purple brand the other day, and their smart comfort grid gimmick has me curious...

    What are you doing today?

    Should have been working all day, but got word that I'm no longer being eyeballed for a business trip to Reno next month, that has nothing to do with my job. As a humorous twist of fate, my boss (who was pushing for me to go on the trip along with a handful other people) got tapped to go on...

    What are you doing today?

    Trying not to curse out coworkers today. Had a 10 am meeting/training with 3 departments, told them to bring their laptops to follow along. Only team that was on time was mine, and since it was going to be short, we started without them. 15 minutes later, just as I was about to finish, a 2nd...

    NEED HELP Speaker feedback

    I believe the Bose amp is behind the passenger side cargo panel in the SWB. Maybe try playing some music, and wiggling the plugs and see if you can cause the sound that way? (replicating the bumps) The amp will be grounded on either the C or D pillar, I don't have one so can't say for sure...

    LED Brake/Blinker Bulbs Kills Blinkers??

    If you're connecting modules together, like this, using crimp connectors is fine. As for grounds, I look to use factory grounds if one is nearby.

    LED Brake/Blinker Bulbs Kills Blinkers??

    With the female spade connectors, they should fit pretty tight out of the box. If you want, you can take some pliers or vice grips, and give them a pinch to make them grab a bit tighter on the module's tabs. Just don't pinch em too hard, or you won't be able to insert the tabs in the first...

    NEED HELP Speaker feedback

    You can peak inside the grilles in the dash, if there are tweeters, you have Bose. If not, they're running off the head unit. Depending on your weather, and if you have a garage to work in, you can try swapping one of the rear speakers with the front if it's non Bose. That will tell you for...

    Does your system have the Bose amp, or speakers powered by the head unit?

    @Capote congrats on the gig brother :2thumbsup: Didn't really feel like cooking tonight, so just been snacking. It's mom's last weekend here before she flies back to AZ mid week, so decided to make some cocktails instead. Oddly enough I drink more with mom, than with dad lol :Lager...

    Tinkered with the screen capture feature on my HU while the cameras were displayed. :cool:

    SUPPORT Fix: PhotoBucket broken image links

    Other than that short time where the forum wouldn't resize pics, uploading straight to the post has been fine. Having PB show hosted pics is good for old posts though, like @bruhaba's supercharger thread I was looking at yesterday. :yes:

    What did you do to your GMT today?

    @Mounce Do you think it would have saved you time (on the driver's side at least) to remove the fan instead of the strut? I've got one split, but have been procrastinating on changing mine out. :ugh:

    What are you doing today?

    Back in the office as well, and sifting through a decent backlog of busy work. Missed a couple of conference calls while I was out, so I'll listen to the recordings after lunch. Not pictured: they also individually wrapped some of the items in the book case. My Chicago Bulls basketball, some...

    NEED HELP Speaker feedback

    You may try checking your factory grounds first. In the B pillars for the speakers, and at the bottom of the radio stack, on the passenger side, behind that flap of carpet. Make sure those are clean and tight. :twocents:

    What are you doing today?

    After tinkering with the truck this morning, decided to go by the office. I was tipped off by a coworker, that some folks wanted to prank me (again) and mess with my office. Last year, they cling wrapped everything, down to my mouse, and bottle of hand sanitizer. Luckily I had a small blade in...

    What did you do to your GMT today?

    Didn't sleep well, so got up to tinker with the camera setup in the EXT. The trailer hitch camera was acting up, so did a little testing. Disconnected the power to the roof camera, and it started working properly again. So my conclusion was, using the amp turn-on signal to activate the amp...

    LED Brake/Blinker Bulbs Kills Blinkers??

    :undecided: I had to go back and read all the old posts... A simpler option would be to snip the parking light wire feeding the front 194 bulbs, and taping off the truck side pieces. Extend the bulb side pieces to the fender ground. This effectively makes your 194s turn signal only, and gets...

    LED Brake/Blinker Bulbs Kills Blinkers??

    Well the problem with that is the 3157 is a 3 connection circuit, and the 194 is a 2 connection circuit, so you can't make a simple connection like that. I found my old photoshop file, so maybe this will help... Using a DPDT relay, you can make a polarity changer, which is what you need for...

    What are you doing today?

    With less than 2 weeks left, mom wanted to go to the beach at least once while she was in town. So today made the trek out to Clearwater, and dealt with all the snowbirds who can't drive. :hopeless: Couple hours of sun, sand, and a nice gulf breeze, and back to home to chill for the evening.

    LED Brake/Blinker Bulbs Kills Blinkers??

    I didn't make a sketch of the one I made. THe link I used, that had the schematic is gone. But if you do a google images search for "type 2 switchback schematic" you'll see a number of ways to do this mod. Just have to pick one that looks like a comfortable match for your skill set
