Nice truck!!

It might look great to black wrap the door pillars between the side windows, too.

Thanks a lot for your help man! Yeah I live in TN, no serious winters here.

You know I see all these silverados and frankly most other trucks sitting on the lot and most of them are just plain boring. Dump another few grand into them and they transform into something like you have now. Amazing! I would have gave mine a second look at a dealership. LT chrome no lift stock wheels and tires. Bleh! Anyways. Nicely done....for now. haha you'll find more to do but you got the biggies out of the way!


Thanks, yeah unfortunately I just have the custom trim so I’m missing a lot of stuff like the 8inch display.

Hmm, wheel liners? I’m not familiar with that. Could you explain?

Oh ok, sounds like that would look good! How hard is that to do?

On the higher end GM trucks they come with a "felt like" wheel liner. They deaden sound and prevent the rock dents and chips...I here are some aftermarket ones.....

Oh...love those ICI steps...look awesome with the white truck. Nice build so far, keep it up. You'll get tons of help out here if you need it. Anyplans for exhaust, tune...ect?

Thanks! Yeah I love the ICI steps, I went back and forth on spending the money on AMP steps but couldn’t do it. Oh who am I kidding I probably will get them eventually [emoji23].

Yes I have lots of ideas!

I think the exhaust is going to be a Carven Type R with a black tip. Tune has been recommend and will probably send it to LEW like everyone else. Never tuned a car before so it should be interesting.

Next, I’m going to sell the drop-in liner and go with either Bullet Liner or Line-X. Still on the fence.

Eventually, I want to swap the jump seat with a floor console, but it’s an expensive process it seems. Cool to see other people doing it for sure.
