Posted 23 March 2015 - 12:28 PM

Just wanted to quickly introduce myself.

 

I picked up a new 2015 Silverado Z71 4x4 on Monday (3/16).  I was going to get the Rainforest Green, but once I saw the Depp Ocean Blue, I couldn't stop looking at it.  I really like the Tungston Metallic too, but 2 of my buddies have that color on their Sierra's, so I couldn't make us the 3 amigos.

 

Anywho, no huge plans for the truck, other than to drive it and a do a few cosmetic mods.

 

I had the dealer put spray in bed liner and side steps (have a 4yr who can't get in otherwise).  Liner is done, but the steps had to be ordered because they didn't have black in stock.  I didn't want the chrome.  So, still waiting for those to come in.

 

I just got home from the top a truck accessory store and had them put on an Access Tonneau cover on.  

 

Also, last friday I put Cooper Discoverer ATP 275/65/18s on the truck from Discount Tire, and sold them the GoodYear SRAs for a $200 credit towards the Coopers.

 

Next on my list is to get some headlights with a cleaner/more white look, and matching fogs.  If anyone has any suggestions, I'd apprecaite it.

 

-Ryan

Man just going from 265/65/18 to a 275/65/18 really does alot for these trucks.  Almost makes me wish I really kept my 2012 and put those on it.

 

Nice truck!

Nice truck!

 

I agree with you on this.  I was dead set on selling the 18s and getting 20s with 275/55 after reading and looking at some pics on here.  But, I figured before I spend that kind of money, I'll try the 275/65/18 on the 18 wheels and see how that goes.

 

I am very happy with the truck and results. 

 

I'm still considering 20s for the summer months though.

 

Also am considering a leveling kit, but I know nothing about them, so I have some reading to do.  I just want to bring the front up a tad to level it out.  Don't want to lift or anything like that.

You won't regret leveling.  2 inch would be the best.  2.5" puts the nose up too high in my opinion.  There is some others like a 1 inch and 1.5 inch if you still want a bit of rake.
