Re: PHONE QUESTION?

Once installed, you can listen to am/fm, intercom, Xbox,etc as normal. If you receive a call, those are muted and you push the button on the supplied controller. Once done with the call all functions are resumed. Install isn’t bad as the unit mounts under the left storage box. $699.00.... :shock: I...

Re: Help!

First question is how old is the battery and is this an AGM Battery (Absorbed GlassMat) or Acid type battery. The symptoms indicate that it may be your battery. Do you have anything that may have been left on to drain the battery (happened to me with trunk light). Check your connections to the batte...

Re: How to install LED Headlights - Video

Just purchased and installed the NEW SoCAL LED headlights which have corrected the issue you encountered. The new units are completely plug & play, no need to cut the H7 adapter from the bulbs. Included a spacer for proper fitment. Maybe next year I will also do my High beams!

The LED's were connected into the mirror lights to allow for the white to be running light and then turn amber when the turn signals go on. Waituntilthebeep did a ...

Re: Has anyone changes to LED Bulbs on Factory Lights?

One of the things youll also have to do if youre doing turn signals also is that youre going to have to get a electronic flasher. LEDs dont pull as much of a load as regular bulbs. So when you put an LED in it flashes a lot faster than a stock bulb. On mine I just replaced the brake light/running l...
