I ordered this with my Hummer, but didn't get any of the options that plug into it. I was planning on looking at having a roof light bar, winch, and air compressor installed. Figured I would post a couple pictures of what it looks like installed. I had the dealer install it as part of PDI.

I think the pod lights come with the mating connector and another harness but I could be wrong, I didn't order them. So I'll either have to try to figure out what connector that is, or order something that has it. I take that back, this is clearly both parts of the connector and wires just have to be inserted into it. I'll have to go through the bag of stuff I got to see if they put usable pins in it, otherwise I'll have to order some. Looks like the 8 pin connector just has positive wires off the relays and you need to use a chassis ground for the equipment.

Would need to run new wires for anything. Based on what I'm seeing in the service manual, it might be too cramped to fit a winch inside the license plate/crash bar area. Would have to be bolted up to the crash bar. The grille shutters are on both top and bottom of the crash bar.

Will have to figure out where to mount the compressor as well. The truck has so many modules, it seems like GM just mounted them wherever they had void-space.

It also looks like you add your own relays (presumably so you can select the wattage) in the box. How much/how many hours did they charge for the install, out of curiosity? Kind of a bummer that even with all those hard switches on the dash you have to use the screen to turn lights on/off.

Box is fed from a 60A fuse, each individual component can be up to 20A as long as you're not over the 60A when stuff is on. I'd have to look the paperwork but I think it was an hour or less?

Seems like a slow day on the forum so let me pose a question related to this post that might get folks talking:

Do we know yet whether any available accessories are compatible with the SUV? Has anyone considered purchasing (or actually purchased) any accessories for the SUV in anticipation of a 2023 delivery?

While I personally am not expecting to get the call for over a year (late reservation for 3X SUV, also have an early reservation for 2X), I am considering what I can do now to prepare / accelerate some of the cost. Top of my list is installing a ChargePoint Home Flex but I'm debating whether purchasing any accessories in the coming months makes sense. For example, the Accessory Touch Screen Control Switches seem like they should be interchangeable between the pick-up and SUV but not sure that's explicit anywhere.

I know I'm a being a bit overzealous but curious for thoughts from folks and any examples of how people are preparing for delivery in future months/years. And congrats to those who have already received their trucks!

Not much detail yet
Agree, this doesn't provide any specific detail but teases by showing the accessories on the SUV. I don't necessarily expect anyone to have an answer on compatibility (would happily be wrong) but more curious what, if any, steps folks have taken to prepare for future delivery, even if that future is somewhat distant for some of us.

I think a vast majority of the non-bed related accessories will work on the SUV.
