Did you ever get the harness from CMatt? What did you get and how did it work out. I am thinking of doing the same thing as you, adding power folding mirrors, heated seats and the center console with USB/110v/8" IO6 connectivity (my bluetooth works but when I plug into the secret spot behind the 8" screen it keeps going on>off>on>off>on>off


Cmatt is in process of helping me upgrade my 17 ppv to factory heated leather buckets and console we are going to try to make everything including rear controls work. I have already upgraded steering wheel but audio controls don’t work. I am also upgrading to the i06 radio. Will post as I get things done. Cmatt has been fast to respond and very helpful so far. Would recommend him if you are doing any upgrades that require wiring.

I did the harnesses for center console. Need to install I06 radio. Decided not to program the bcm to do seats and rear controls.

Ya im talking with Matt now, being that I have an '18, the IO5 is standard equipment so I just need to unlock the ability to use Android Auto/Navigation features along with videos and video in motion. I'm also doing the steering wheel swap, DL3 mirrors, fog lights and a couple other things.

No. I never pursued the issue further. I believe a person with the correct GM flashing device can supposedly enable the switch circuit.
the rear windows have a dummy switch. I replaced mine from a salvage non ppv tahoe and the windows worked.

I got the power folding mirrors on and everything went well with CMatt. Looking to swap out the front seats for something black from a civilian model K2, black leather is preferred.

I do have my original Steering Wheel with controls if anyone is interested as well as the GM OEM tow hooks since they can't be run in tandem when you have the push bar. Also have a few other parts if needed.

REALLY need to figure out a shock setup (wanted 5100s but can't seem to confirm if they will work with the PPV springs. Also have the typical AC small leak from somewhere, gotta find that tonight. Since my car has the new 1234yf its a huge PITA to get it recharged, luckily I know a guy :)

Child locks on my truck are a simple button on the driver's door that unlocks/locks them electronically!
