Silverado9306's 2016 Silverado build

Postby silverado9306 [OP] » Jul 17 2016, 5:21am

So I finally upgraded trucks last weekend, just couldn't pass up the rebates and the offer on my 06 so I pulled the trigger on my first brand new truck! It's a 2016 Silverado LT Z71 with the All Star package.

First week of ownership has been great, absolutely love the truck but of course I ain't gonna leave it stock. Already have had the windows tinted to 5% with a strip and picked up some AVS in channel visors today.

Future mods include: Range AFM delete, some sort of exhaust ( nothing to loud on this one), leveling kit, tires and wheels, seat covers of some sort and some floor liners. Going to keep this one simple and clean.

Oh and the stock headlights in these trucks are great!

Very nice looking truck, Just curious on why the Range AFM delete? Just so you stay in 8 cylinder mode at all times?

Sweet ride for sure. I like how you plan to keep it simple. You know there is never an end to the mods... :lol:

Well I mean I paid for 8 cylinders and I want them on all the time ;). Put one on my wife's Tahoe and it made it so much better to drive.

Nice looking truck, congrats on the purchase. Looks like you bought it in my home town of Hickory.

I initially didn't like the 14' & 15's, now I dig them. I also didn't like the 16', now I'm starting to. I think it takes time to get used to a new body style. Yours looks good and practical. You were smart to get the crew cab for room (the double looks good but tiny), smart to get the silver (silver stays clean easier) and smart to get the Z71 (obviously) lol. Good choice man!

Close! But I dealt with the Morganton dealer.

I loved the 14 and 15s from the start, the 16s grew on me a lot. Tons of room with the crew cab vs my old extended cab and yes that is the main reason I got silver lol.

Another mod completed today, a simple one but essential one IMO... AVS in channel visors.Took maybe 20mins to install which I'm glad cause it's pretty hot here today.
