Wikidbwoy's 2014 Sierra Build thread

I bought my truck brand new in Houston, TX back in July 2013 and built it for Sema. It is a SLT 2wd with pretty much every option including sunroof and sliding rear window. I know this isn't everyones cup of tea and many will not like it but its my truck and my money so I did what I wanted to MY truck.

 

The day I bought it

Went straight from the dealer to put on wheels. 26" Modular Society. I also added HID headlights, fog lights and all LED lights inside and reverse lights. Sorry no pics of the lights. I sold the factory 20s and running boards a couple weeks later.

This is the rendering that was done and what I was going for.

A couple months later the truck went to Ekstensive Metal Works in Houston to get air ride suspension. Wheels were ordered from Empire Autosports in Houston. They are 24x10 and 26x12 Intro Retro Wheels. I also ordered 26x10 for the fronts but they were not ready until Sema.

OEM painted white grill, door handles, and mirror caps. I had the rest of the mirrors, rear tailgate handle, and fender pieces painted to match.

Picked up my 26x10 front wheels from Intro Wheels in LA and had them mounted at Elite Audio & Custom in Las Vegas. Also T-Rex gave me the mesh grill for Sema so I took off the white grill.

I thought our lights inside the cab were already LED?! Any pictures of exterior upgraded lighting? Sent from my DROID RAZR HD using Tapatalk

My bad the interior is already LED. I will try and get some of the exterior.

 

Super cool man! Not my style but I have much respect for the work and man hours it takes to slam a truck like that!! What's the maximum ride height? Must ride beauty on the highway!

 

Any plans for some go fast parts?

When its up all the way its probably at the height of a 3/5 drop. I want to add some motor work but I'm not too familiar with motor upgrades. I am going to do an exhaust, intake, and get tuned.

 

This is my daily work truck by the way. Im sure a lot more people prefer this one.

I would love to see the face of the costumer service guy when you bring your truck in to check out "a popping sound from the suspension". :D

 

I really like it. Great job!

 

so long
