Its been awhile since I've put up an update post on what I have done to my truck in the past few months. So here is the list....

-RC 2 inch leveling kit

-Carven performance exhaust ( Competition muffler )

-Aftermarket taillights ( returning soon as they already have issues )

-future planned taillights are morimoto's

-Black bowtie swap front and rear

-I may get aftermarket headlights in the future if prices go down.

-Custom HD towing mirrors ( The front LED turn signals are sequential )

-20 inch light bar mounted onto a license plate bracket mount

-20x10 -25 offset dropstar 655bm

-33x12.5 toyo open country RT's

-Front end air dam removal with trimming for tires

-LED turn signal bulbs


All these mods were done myself except for the tow mirrors since i had them done at my Chevy dealer so that i made sure everything worked properly and was warrantied for the wiring harness.

Please give me your thoughts and opinions on my build and give me any pointers o what i should do next to the truck. I'm thinking about getting a cold air inductions CAI next.

Nice truck!! Some things that will help to preserve the paint etc would be some real good running boards, mudflaps and inside rear wheel well protectors. There is a truck not far from me that did a little more lift and he put the Z71 mudflaps all the way around. Really helped it stand out. the running boars will also help to protect the side of the base of the seat while getting in and out from breaking down. Good luck and have fun!!

What do you think of the Toyo's? I have R/T's in 35x12.50's and I'm 50/50. I think they suck in the rain, not that good in light mud/grassy areas. They are awesome in dirt, rock and sand, as long as it's mostly dry...

Ive had them on no for 1600 miles and have experienced them in many conditions, as far as noise they are no louder then the stockers. Mud they did fine for me they never clogged up, wet grass i didnt have an issue. They actually do really good in snow and ice i have found out over the past week as i am in mass and the roads got pretty bad. but the only thing i dislike is my mpg drop but that has to do with the added weight and my aggressive stance at about 2 inches of poke. honestly love the tires and the look of them.

Looks great. I'd personally get some window tint. Color match the mirrors. Other than that don't change a thing. I don't understand the whole debadging everyone does. Have any vids of your led signals in action? 

I will be getting the front windows matched and a matching 6 inch banner on the windshield but as for the color match i dont have the money for it, college is taking away from my work hours to afford a $700 paint job.

Looks good. Very tasteful mods. If I were you I would debadge and lose the Z71 stickers on the box.



Im not the biggest fan of debadgeing i respect the idea but i much prefer black badges such as the silverado lettering in black. Thank you for the complement. Love your truck btw i tried getting my truck in the same blue as yours but none were available at my dealer and for the same price that i wanted.
