Couple things I've done recently, bought the GM accessorie tailgate handle and had the black section painted. I also picked up a Summit white XM antenna and installed that in place of the black one.
Bugs me how GM doesn't include these when you buy the upper end model trucks.

Looks nice. Why did you get the Max Tow package if you don’t tow anything? Seems like it would add significant cost if you didn’t need it.

He answers that question in his original post.

I need to redo my cst logo back plate. I think I might copy you with the shiny one instead of red.

Some other things I've done are, had the front windows tinted 20% to match the rears, changed out the License plate bulbs, reverse light bulbs, and cargo light bulbs with Vleds LED's. Added Husky floor liners front and rear. Removed the factory antenna and replaced with a Ronin shorty, since I mostly use Pandora. I also debadged the doors and tailgate and just left the bowtie. Now with the color matched tailgate handle I'm debating removing the bowtie on the tailgate. Kind of looks out of place with the white handle above it.

I've already bought new wheels, Hostile Rage in Chrome 20x10 -19, they will be going on here in a month or so. Haven't decided on tires yet, but I'm thinking Toyo AT's in 33x12.50/20.
I had Toyo MT's on my 2013, love the looks of them but I really don't need that aggressive of a tire.
So somethings I plan to do in the next couple weeks are add the Deaver Mini-Pack and most likely have the bumpers vinyl wrapped in white.

I'll add a picture of my 2013 Sierra here. Was going for the same look on this truck.

I told you to do the shiny thing before you installed your lift. :D

Oh...and what is that huge ferd in the garage there? You run a business out of your home?

Yeah Neal, the Max Tow package comes with the 3.42 ratio, standard with the 6.2 is 3.23. All 6.2's are standard with the 8-speed. I believe the earlier 14's and maybe some 15's 6.2 came with 6-speed and 3.73 axle in the Max Tow NHT package.

I'm a Concrete Contractor, the truck in the garage is my F-800 work truck. It does the heavy work.
Sorry for posting the F**d here, but here is a better look at it.

Wow...that thing is clean looking for a concrete work truck!!

I need you to come down here and help me out with a patio and driveway extension project! haha

That must be a massive garage you have to fit that thing in there.

Thanks, yeah I get a lot of compliments on it, specially being 22 years old.
I should take you up on that, get me out of this frozen T****a for a bit.
