Be forewarned... it's typical for a vehicle to throw a rod at exactly 100,000 miles. If that didn't happen then you should be good for another 100k, another 200k if you only drive downhill.

Been awhile, and that's because I have been contemplating on what I want to do with this truck.
I'm in between spending 3-4k and getting a bigger lift and 35s, or saving up for a couple years and going out and buying a 2016+ new one. Considering mine has 100k miles on it now.
If I lifted mine I would keep mine forever basically.
Any thoughts?

Just read through your whole build, great looking truck!

It's weird to me that the LTZ came with those black door mouldings, I like them on my '13 but they are body colored. The black looked out of place for sure.

As for trading it or lifting more, I like it how it is now! I'm hoping to keep mine forever close to as it is but I guess we'll see if I still feel the same when it hits 100k...

Thanks!! I've done some thinking and I'm going to keep this thing forever, I like it too much and I would be sad to get rid of it, so I'm going to keep it.
I'm going to put a RC 7.5 inch lift kit with 35s, get a tuner , and call it good. Hopefully within this year.

Well.. I no longer have this truck, I loved it , but I found something I fell more in love with for a great price.

A 2015 3500 Duramax with Allison, So, I had to have it.

I'll post some pictures here in a minute.
