I promised when I joined to get some pics up after a few mods. Not the best pics since I took them on my phone. Still have a few things I want to do but this is the damage so far. Thanks for all the great info and ideas. Keep them coming.

So far I've added the following:

2.5" Rough Country Leveling Kit
18 x 9 Ultra Motorsport Phantoms
285/65R18 Toyo Open Country A/T 2 Extremes
Tinted front windows to match back
Plasti Dipped front and back GMC emblems and my tag
Came with the steps and slide in liner
Also got Jet Black leather as a factory upgrade

Most everything I've done came with a little inspiration from here. Still would like to add

Weather tech mats
Range AFM Disable
Westin Bull Bar with Double stacked 20" LED light bar
Swap factory muffler for something a little louder but not deafening

I'm sure there is 100 other things but I better slow down before the wife gets suspicious.

I'm adding a GMC chrome exhaust tip this week and removing the front air dam.

Thanks for all the comments. I was super hesitant on the Plasti Dip on a new truck but I couldn't be happier. Taping was tedious but everything went very smooth. Threw it to the tag too, I liked it so much.

On a side note, I took it to the dealership this morning for recall work and asked them to relearn the TPMS for me. Then they tried to charge me a half hours labor for wanding the sensors when I sat there for almost two hours on my off day due to a recall. Needless to say, they did it and I didn't pay the bogus labor charge.

Hope everyone has a great 4th. I've got turkeys and chicken brining and a back strap marinating. God Bless the USA!!!

Took my front air dam off today and added the GMC chrome exhaust tip. Got a Westin bull bar coming thanks to the Auto Anything 20% off sale this past weekend. Trying to decide on led light bar to go on it. So many choices. Try to add a couple more pics tomorrow.

On a side note, if any mods read this, could you please mov ed this thread to the "Under ConsTRUCKtion" forum? Thanks

Put the Westin bull bar on today. Whole lot of suck. Had to cut both of the long bolts that hold the tow hooks on. Called Westin before I started and they just said "Yeah, it is not real easy to do anymore. 14s are a different design. you need to take the front bumper off." I asked about cutting the bolts and he told me he wasn't sure which bolts I had to re-use so I shouldn't cut any bolts. Very unhelpful. I figured it out on my own. Took forever to cut the bolts. No way to get a wheel in to grind them. Burned up 3 metal reciprocating blades and 2 hours of cutting. Oh well. It's on now. I'm 50/50 on it right now. I'll probably like it better once I get my light bar on it. If not I'll do something else later.

New pics show front valence removed and new exhaust tip also. Thinking about going with a local company on the led light bar. Lucky Dog Off-Road has a 21.5" bar for $150. They look pretty good. I'm thinking about wiring it to my cargo area light switch to cut down on adding another switch and to keep my high beams w/o the bar if I want to. Any thoughts would be appreciated on that idea. Thanks for all the comments. I'll update pics as things change.

Looks sweet. The blacked out GMC logo in front really changes how the grille looks
