JQCitizen’s 2018 Silverado LTZ Z71 build

Postby JQCitizen [OP] » Jan 06 2019, 2:23am

Just picked this up in October with zero intentions do make any modifications, well that has completely gone out the window. This is my daily driver, so any modifications can not have me down for multiple days, let’s see how long that lasts too.

I am working to build this as a good daily driver with medium off road capabilities. Would like to lift it no more than 3 inches, still have Atlanta parking garages I have to fit in.

Blacked out for Hot-Lanta! Been through there a time or two. Worse than the crazies here in Houston. Maybe needs the rocket launcher mod! Haha

Or possibly a plow! I’m originally from the DC area. Never thought I would say this, but, I really miss DC traffic. Atlanta is horrible.

So here is the first mod a few days after I got the truck. Had to get rid of the stock intake. The truck needed to sound like a truck. Exhaust coming by the end of the week.

Nice. What exhaust did you go with?

Houston is pretty rough...you learn how to deal with it. My dad came down for a visit after I had lived here a while, he is pretty conservative driver. He was ready to get out of the truck after I drove them around a bit. Gotta learn to get up to speed fast getting on the highway and not leave much room in front of you for the weavers...much more aggressive driving than he is used to...haha.

Went with the Borla ATAK split dual side exhaust system with the black chrome tips. Love the sound of it. One of my customers has it on his truck, It’s really not too loud as everyone claims if you keep your foot out of it.

Nice...I have Borla also. The touring which is more mild. Love the sound. Really a nice note...both start up and driving and getting on it. The dual side exit is great...a nice balanced look. I have chrome tips...hate them...haha. They get all sorts of nasty and a pain to keep clean. I think the black are a great choice. I may swap mine out with some at some point. Will have to cut them off to maybe put on some aftermarket ones.
