n8dh's 2010 Silverado

Postby n8dh [OP] » Apr 12 2017, 11:06pm

Hey guys, been a while. As some of you know, I got hit by a drunk driver about a month ago, and my truck was written off by insurance. Here's a link to the album of the damage to my old truck:
gallery/album.php?album_id=77586

So with the money from insurance, I ended up buying a 2010 Silverado, 5.3L, 6L80e, 4x4. No more fleet truck status for me :D
Here's a pic of it in stock form:

Just this morning I went through and swapped all the mods I could from my old truck onto the new one. Tow mirrors, taillights, LED reverse/tag lights, Airaid MIT and my exhaust. I don't have any great pics of the truck now that the mods are swapped over, but I'll get those soon. I still have to remove the air dam on the front of it, tint the front windows, level it (just 2"....don't think I'm gonna do a BL again) and install the rear wheel well liners from my old truck. I also have a set of the Rough Country side steps which I will be installing instead of the grandpa chromies :P We'll see what funds allow for more mods, but it won't be anything too drastic I don't think.

Haven't been on much in a while myself, didn't know about the accident, sorry to hear Nate. But looks like it all worked out in the end.

Sshhh Mike, Rick might hear you :shock:

Yeah Steve, it did work out. Came out ahead with the insurance money, so that's a plus too.

Took a quick pic this evening:

Glad it all worked out, Nate.... I know the truck is two years older but its a much better looking pick-up to start your "build" with. Another bright side is that there will be very little to no more fleet truck jokes.

Sure the truck is 2 years older...But it has 10,000 fewer kilometers (6K miles) than my old truck. Hardly any yearly mileage.
