Jasen's Fire Red 06 Sierra Z71 project

Postby Jasen [OP] » Apr 29 2016, 4:12am

I bought my 06 used from the local GMC dealer w/ 128k. 5.3 L33, Z71 off road, SLT, fire red, tow package, dark pewter leather interior, mostly loaded.

Ignore the F*rd, I took the picture in a customers driveway day after I got the truck.

304337

This will pretty much be a appearance build to make it my truck.

The original owner had already added an Injen CAI, Optima red top, Power master 225 amp alt. Helwig overloads, billet grill, SS door/tailgate handle covers, SS rocker kit, nurf bars, simulated brushed nickle dash kit, aluminum Z71 high mount light cover, SS bed rail caps, chrome wheel well trim, chrome door guard moldings added to the box and chrome exhaust tip.

I will be doing some de-chroming, badges and other goodies...

What I've done so far.
The high mount light cover is gone.
1250lm LED reverse lights
305514 305538

Delta pro cross box
304321

Hercules spot mirrors
304329

500lm 921 high mount brake/cargo LED's

I'll be done when I'm finished, if that's not fast enough, take a number!

My truck was covered in chrome when I bought it, so today I started dressing it down. Have to get an eraser before I go after the side moldings, then I'll see how I feel about the rocker kit, but I think it will probably go away as well.

Checked the filter today in the Injen PF7050P , this was an existing upgrade. I don't know if it does anything more then look and sound good.

A work is progress, but thanx. A bit to much bright work for my taste especially for the color, but options are limited around here for used trucks unless you want a crew cab. But clean, and reasonable miles for a reasonable price is a good starting point :)

That was definitely a lot of chrome on there. I like the way you are going with this. Always nice to see another NBS.

What kind of glue did you use? I have a little peeling up on the passenger side that is hardly noticeable for now but I need to get on top of it before it gets bad.
