I’m gonna assume CM means Color Match. Lol. Considering when I had my first gen, I color matched my rear evil M before spraying it flat black later on.

Oh really? I did not know that was housed in the from emblem. I figured the ACC was in the windshield. And yes, CM means colormatched.

If the rear badge didn't screw on, I would just remove it. So I may EvilM CM it so that its custom stealthy.

It's not exactly housed in there... the actual radar is mounted behind it and they shoot through the emblem. Regardless, it's integrated into the embelem.

Either way, that means I can vinyl wrap it black like I thought I was, lol.

Oh well.

Today I ordered all the radio conversion items, minus the a radio itself, and my previously loved weather tech mats should be here today.

I will work on the harness and find exactly where the idatalink maestro rr runs too. It's not but 6 or so wires. I also have the RCA to speaker wire connection coming for low level RCA output to send to the Bose amp for a better listening experience.

For Bose, is the amp triggered independently of the radio harness? On my dad's 01 GMC Yukon, we had to run the 12v remote wire off the radio to the trigger of the Bose amp for it to turn on. I couldn't find a definitive answer to that question.

Thanks guys!

Windows tinted. NC Legal (45% over factory brings it to about 35%) and 70% on the windshield.

Also got my ps inner tail light and my radio install stuff arrived. Now to choose a radio. I want a Pioneer 4200NEX, but I may just go with the 2300NEX for the price difference.

Just found out that Morimoto makes a LED Fog light direct drop in for the 3rd gen. I have them on my 07 Yukon, as well as retrofitted Mini D2S 4.0 retrofit, and they make a huge difference.

So I guess I'll be making an order for those and some 5500k d4s bulbs to match. Lawd!

All of my radio install stuff has arrived!

I am also going to install my 5 channel amp and kicker L710 sub as well, but I am only going to run the sub channel at this time.

When/if the Bose starts to clunk out, I will then wire the remaining 4 channels in and swap out speakers for better units.

Thank you. Hopefully wiring up the iDatalink will be as easy as I think it will be.

Today a massive rock hit my windshield and now I have a crack.

The dealer that sold me my car does 1 free windshield replacement and free oil changes for the 1st year/12,000 miles, so guess who's getting a free windshield and oil change in a few thousand miles??

This guy!

I will also need to get my windshield repainted. Sigh.
