RHStansbury's 2017 LTZ Z71 Silverado Build Thread

Recommended Posts

Took delivery of my 2017 CCSB LTZ Z71 on 1/6/17 after a couple of days of calls/emails with the internet sales manager at a local dealer. 7 miles on the clock when I arrived for my test drive, 15 when I returned it, and 18 when I took delivery 4 hours later.

 

Plans are relatively tame at this point. First up will be tint, followed shortly by a level (currently debating between 2 and 2.5, also between 275/60r20 or 275/65r20 BFG AT KO2s). From there I'll probably keep it pretty low key for a while. Down the road exhaust and a remote light bar behind the grill might come in to the equation.

 

Obligatory dealer shot

Figured I'd go ahead and knock out the tint while I figure out level and tire options. 20% front to match the rear.

We'll see! I need to do some more research on kits, tires, etc. I thought I was sold on a rough country 2.5 and 275/65/r20's but now I'm trying to determine if that's a touch too big for day to day driving and if I should just roll with a 2 inch and 33s.

 

Also, the most well known shop in town quoted me $2300 out the door for the level, install, tires, and an alignment. I feel like that's way too high.

my truck is 2.5 " level ,still with stock tires 265/65/18 . when they wear out 275 or 285 . Check your local dealership / tire shop for new take off . also car show / swap meets will start poping up ( warm weather ) trade your tires / rims in on new ones ??

I like the rims I have, just need to figure out sizing for the rest. As I've gotten older, I realize that I like to make my vehicles just slightly different than stock. Enough of a change that someone who knows what they're looking at appreciates the differences, but someone who is not a truck person is none the wiser. For this truck, that means stock rims, minimal lift, and very few small changes.

33" look great with a level in my opinion.

 

I like 34" too, but I think the truck needs a tad more than a level to pull it off.
