skylerwallace 2015 Duramax 3500 Z71

Postby SkylerWallace [OP] » Mar 26 2017, 5:00am

So....

I work at a dealership, and have been waiting for a new body style 1500 to roll in for me to get into.
And two days ago we took in this 2015 Duramax 3500 Z71. And I knew it was meant to be.
I got a fair deal on it for 41k, it has 50k miles, and a 62 year old previous owner.
The only reason I really got it was because I was going to spend about the same for a 1500, since I was going to lift it and add about 8k of accessories.
But with this one, why do I need to make it look bad ass when it already is.

I have had it for about a day now, and I am in LOVE!!!!
I will do some things to it over time, but nothing major like 10 inch lift.

Bed liner, and black wheels will be on the agenda first.

When you said 62 year old owner I expected autozone stick on chrome and orange lights everywhere. But that truck looks great!

That should be a solid truck for a long time to come, she's just barely broken in.

Yeah I love it. I'm tempted on painting the chrome wheels that are on it, or just leaving it until I buy new ones this summer.
