Damn, good lookin rig. Love the color, and the fact you went with black wheels. My 06 came with a leveling kit already installed. I don't know what it is, all I know is I have airbags in the rear, and the front might have keys? I had to lower the front of mine down a bit cause the previous owner had it almost maxed out, (where the upper control arm was almost hitting the piece under it) but I still had a looooot of bolt left for adjusting on the keys. I work with a few GM mechanics at work and one came out and said you're supposed to be able to fit your finger in between the upper control arm and the 'bump stop' looking bracket just under it. Mine was almost touching, and was certainly hitting whenever going over bumps, so I had to bring it back down.

Well my old Alpine headunit was always having problems, and was tired of dealing with it. It was 8 years old though. So I got a pioneer avh-p4400bh last week for a good deal and installed it yesterday, really like it so far.

I love the Pioneer head units. I moved my 3 year old double din into my 05 sierra about a month ago. The stereo location in these trucks is really nice and having it up so high is awesome for the backup camera.

Great looking truck! It's been awhile since I've done any mods, being winter and all, but looking at yours is giving me that itch again.

Thanks guys, but I did trade this truck in last June for a 2011 crew cab. It had about 180k on it when I traded it, it was a good Truck though.
