dmart21's 2009 silverado build

Postby dmart21 [OP] » Jul 01 2015, 3:29am

i've been procrastinating on doing one of these for a few weeks now and I have finally decided to do it.
I bought a 2009 silverado lt z71 back in April and I barely had it a week before I started ordering parts for it. The truck had a few modifications on it when I bought it which initially attracted me to it.
The list includes:
pioneer gps head unit, mtx amp
katskin leather seats with warmers
daystar leveling kit
32" nitto terra grapplers

The first thing I did was add a 12" Kicker comp sub and get the windows tinted 20% on the front 2 and a 5% strip with 70% ceramic on the windshield, helps with the Alabama heat

This was just the start. The next weekend I ordered an airaid mit, dynomax exhaust, diablo sport intune, 6000k hid headlights and foglights, led reverse bulbs, led interior lights, led tag lights, and led cargo lights

Next came a set of nfab textured black nerf bars then about a month passed and I got that Itch again. I purchased the rancho 4" lift and paired it with the rs7000mt shocks and struts, found a set of 20x9 et18 chrome xd badlands and had them wrapped in 33" atturo trail blade xt tires
Before the tires came in:

I even managed to get it a little muddy

I'm going to try and leave it alone for a little while but the wheels are always turning in my head on what to do next :mrgreen:

I was the exact same way at first, I found them on Craigslist for $500 and they grew on me quickly even though I had to replace one of them right off the bat.

build update!

Been a while since i have posted an update and a lot of things have changed
Tails and 3rd brake were tinted professionally, taped off reverse and cargo lights, using Sherwin Williams CC931 clear coat and Ultra 7000 black toner. I highly recommend doing this over using products like VHT. The clear coat adds UV protection so it will not fade like the spray can tints will and looks much better in general.

Partially debadged the tailgate, left the silverado but the flex fuel and lt badges are gone

Added 1.25" Bora wheel spacers in the rear to match the front track width with the Rancho lift

Replaced the stock black plastic door handles with colormatched ones, got a deal on ebay at $100 shipped for the whole set
Colormatched the grille and bumper with a used oem grille off ebay, stole the thing at $135 shipped!!! Got the bumper piece for 199 shipped from Mbiauto. turned out pretty good for the money I put into it.

Last but not least replaced the oem headlights and fogs with smoked lights from ebay, light output is not as bright but still pretty good with 6000k hids. I will be swapping wheels this weekend but I'm going to wait to tell you guys what they are till I've got pictures.
