Visited the site a lot over the years and decided to join and chat with you all. Looking forward to the discussions

My truck is a black 2010 Sierra WT Reg Cab, 4.8L, 2WD, 4L60E, 3.23 rear end, mostly stock, 138,000 miles. Upgrades i've done include k&n cold air intake, gibson cat-back dual exhaust, diablosport 87 octane tune, 20" wheels, 275 55 20 tires, weathertech floor and bed liner, roll-up bed cover.

My next upgrade will probably be shocks and struts all the way around. They're pretty worn out. Whats a good choice to go with? I'd like to change them out myself. Not as important but would also like to upgrade the factory 4-gauge cluster and radio to something with bluetooth.

thanks for reading

Welcome to the site!

I recently went with Bilstein 5100s in the rear and "old school" Gabriel "ready mount" fully loaded strut assemblies (bought on Amazon,) up front. Very happy with the ride.
Changed everything, including the sway bar bushings and end links in about 2.5 hours.

welcome, cant really go wrong with Bilstein or Rancho. IIRC from what others have said the Bilsteins seem to be a little stiffer but offer a planted ride whereas the Rancho have a little more cushion.
