sstumpf 2015 Silverado z71 build

Postby sstumpf [OP] » Sep 10 2018, 12:03am

Well I traded in the red 2011 yesterday. Had 105k miles on it and my rear fenders where starting to develop rust bubbles. So it was just time. I've been looking for about a month now, then yesterday morning this truck popped up at a local GMC dealer. So I decided to go try and work out a deal.

An hour and a half later the deal was done. Quick and easy. They gave me a good trade in on my truck and got them down a little on the new one. Actually walked out of there with payments $25 a month less.

Now to the truck, it's a 2015 Silverado double cab z71 LT custom sport package. Has color matched front end and leather interior, which was 2 things I was looking for. It's got 39k miles on it and is a one owner. Also has a spray in bed liner. It's in great condition. Love the ride quality and interior quality over the old one.

Not sure what direction I'm going with this one yet. I know I'm going to keep it more simple than the old one. I've been doing a lot of longer trips on the weekends and just want to keep the good ride and mpg.

So I'll for sure be doing a 2" level this week,

AT tires before winter. Not sure which ones or size yet

Window tint
Black bowtie and Z in the z71 emblem
Tonneau cover
Floor liners


Wheels (maybe) kinda like these, I've always had black and this is a nice change.

I saved my old stereo system but not sure what I'm doing with that yet.

Here's a few pictures for now. I'll get more when the level is on. And the last picture I got of the red one at the dealer.ImageImage

Congratulations on the new truck! It's a looker, for sure! I like the color-matched grille on the "old-style" K2XX trucks.

Very nice. Looking forward to watching the "low key...not to much" mods! haha. I bet it was hard letting go of the old one...but getting the nice new upgraded truck...makes it easier! It will be bitter sweet for sure whenever I swap mine. Hoping to keep on holding out though.

I did not see any wheel pic...must not have gone through.

Yup. Was definitely hard letting the old truck go, but once I got in the new one and started driving it, it made it easier.
Haha, ya we'll see how long I can actually keep the mods low key.

Love my 14. Get a catch can on it and do a DI intake cleaning. Mine I got from my dad with 42K and I noticed a significant difference after running a can of CRC DI intake valve cleaning through it. I also put an ADD W1 catch can on it.

Go to advanceauto website and they give a 25% coupon for an online purchase.

I just noticed the similar topics list below showing 3 other builds...so this is #4 right?

This would be a neat sig to show the progression/history leading up to current rig!
