New guy from Florida

Postby Jorem50 [OP] » Apr 06 2011, 11:14pm

Hello all...
Well I finally traded in my 1997 f-150 for a 2010 Silverado 1500 2WD 4.8l LT Crew Cab. I have had it for about 3 weeks now and can't seem to stay out of it. Here is a list of the things I have added so far...
Curt trailer hitch and 7 pin connector from etrailer.com
Tekonsha P-3 Trailer Brake Controller
Grill insert
Upgraded the stock steel rims to Stock aluminum rims
Tinted the front two windows
On my to do list is...
Leveling kit
Chrome bug deflector
DIC upgrade
Chrome tow hooks
Exhaust upgrade

There has been a lot of good information on this site plus every time I'm on I get new ideas.

Here are a few pics

Welcome to the club. That's a different grill... don't see something like that a lot up here in VT (but then again, VT is about 20 years behind everyone else).

I too am a prior F150 owner ('98), traded that for an 03 R** 2500... Not regreting it at all.

Enjoy your rig. I am sure you will. Great group of folks here, lots of information.

WELCOME to the site! Love the mods so far!
Might I suggest one more for the list? A lot of guys here are talking about these: Inner rear fender gaurds, well gaurds not present
Not sure if you've thought about it, but they would look great!

Again, welcome!
