Hello all! It was suggested I start a build thread so here I am starting one! My truck is a 2016 Silverado Regular Cab with the 5.3L v8 and 6 speed automatic. It has the IOB 7" infotainment center with Apple Play/Android Auto, trailer hitch incorporated into the rear bumper, cruise control, 40/20/40 seats etc and although I originally thought it had 3:42 gears based on the standard items listed on the sticker I somehow missed that my option column shows that it actually has the 3:08 gears. The LT interior was a little too busy looking for me and had a bunch of stuff I didn't really need and about the only option the LS didn't have that I wished for is the steering wheel audio/phone controls but I think I can get by without those especially after finding out from the dealer the cost as well as what it would take to install. I had modifications in mind before even getting the truck such as lowering, tire/wheel upgrade, increasing performance/handling, upgrading to a competition level audio system (my hobby and side business) and of course plans to personalize it to my tastes. Here's what I have done so far and the more I read this forum the more I add to my list so future plans are below! Day 1 Before installing 2" drop shackles and removing spacer block (shows the chrome door handles I installed but did not like so they got changed quickly) After shackles installed/spacer block removed and color matched handles as well as mirror caps installed The gold Bowtie looked out of place to me so I color matched the front one using the rattle can custom mix kit you can get on eBay or Amazon along with Duplicolor primer/adhesion promoter I didn't like the look of the rear Bowtie at all even after color matching so I removed it and I also added the LS emblem to balance out the rear somewhat since now only the LT and LTZ trucks get those emblems for some reason. (I also plan to color match the tailgate handle) More coming in a few minutes!
Yeah I am one of those who actually likes some badging on the truck but I didn't really care for how Chevrolet did it so I made a few changes. First I color matched the grill and wheel Bowties.. On the tailgate I started by removing the Bowtie and adding the LS emblem but it still looked out of balance to me so I removed the LS and centered the Silverado (I also color matched the tailgate handle). I thought the Silverado emblem was a bit too much for the doors so I first replaced them with LS emblems but that looked a little too bare for me so I found some 1500 emblems. I'm still not sure I like that so I may try something else. I really like the hood on this truck however I felt it needed a little something. I recently came across some pictures of my old 79 Corvette and the L82 emblem on the hood inspired me to do this.. Not everyone's cup of tea I am sure but it's interesting how many people notice something is different from other Silverados but don't necessarily realize exactly what it is!
I have a 2016 Silverado that's deep ocean blue with the only aftermarket thing just tinted windows and the chip to get rid of the v8 to v4 mode and I am undecided on what wheels I want to buy for it. It currently has the stock oem 18's on it and I want to put 22'' wheels on it but can't decide between black or gunmetal ones. I am wondering if anyone else has the same year and color as I do that put 22'' wheels on and and is willing to share a picture of it so I can see a few different ones before I make up my mind. I am hoping to see a few pictures of both black and gunmetal ones. I thank you in advance for your help!
