2000 GMC Sierra 4.8 Z71

Bought in 2007 with 247,000 miles (all original). Fell in love with it when I first seen it and brought it home that day.

The first mod new body parts after wrecking it in 2008 on my birthday. Got hit in the front driver side by an suv.

Don't have any pictures of the truck during all this but here's the suv.

A few years later I started actually modifying it. First up was a leveling kit, debadge, and CAI. On a side note I also thought blacked out lights looked good lol

Then I put newer wheels and camo visors on but that didn't last long before I changed my mind!

Then a few months later I got my first set of 33s. Maxxis mudders are by far the worst tire I've ever had!!!

I then picked up some used 285 60 18 terra graps and 18x9 moto metals

Next up was to color match the bumpers with plastic dip

Few months later I nailed a deer at a pretty good rate of speed and this was the damage. Ruined the plastidip so it's off now till I get a new bumper

Of note, at 321k miles the truck has seen very little major repair work. Basically all the normal stuff and a transmission at 278k miles. The next thing that needs work now is the AC (I only have heat atm) I'm sure I'm missing some stuff in this thread but this pretty well sums it up

Got my A/C actuator that I ordered Wednesday in the mail today. Hopefully that's the last part I need to fix my A/C seeing as I'm already $165 into this project

Recharged my AC again since it's leaking but now it won't blow cold air at all. Getting a bit sick of this

Put the stock blocks back in to make it level again instead of raked but I'm gonna have to bring the front down some. These angles make me nervous with this brand new front end...
