Postby L-Train [OP] » Sep 10 2020, 10:03pm

New here, bought a 2012 Sierra 1500 SLE 5.3 in stealth gray, z71, 4x4, back in May - first time owning a pickup truck and have to say I love driving one. i've been in the import scene a while (eclipse, rsx-s, wrx, sti) and was (still am) a subaru fanboi but recently decided, the hell with it, i want a truck. just starting to peruse the aftermarket and see what's out there right now but happy to be truckin!

Welcome to the site and congrats on the new truck. There is a wealth of great ideas on things you can do to personalize your truck on this site. Check out the different under construction threads and specific interior, exterior, lighting...etc threads for ideas.

A great place to start on a used truck is to get all the fluids changed and check wear items like shocks and front suspension items...etc.

So this was coming right from carvana, traded in a forester.. will get more pics soon. I always dug the z71 decals so i added those, rain guards, rail caps, tailgate assist, and bug deflector. Have waiting for install matte black 'sierra' badges for doors and tailgate, black GMC badges for front grill and back, matte black front grill pieces as well. i have a 2 month old so finding time for installs is a bit tough these days haha!
