Daryl Z71’s 2015 Silverado LTZ Build

Recommended Posts

Bought this truck this past Thursday in Ohio. 2015 Silverado LTZ with the 6.2L V8. I have many plans for this truck and I absolutely love this thing!

Sure did. A guy I used to work with asked me if I wanted to sell it, but I don’t want to. I’ll have it until the wheels fall off.

Removed the bow tie from the tailgate, and replaced the LTZ emblem with a 6.2L emblem.

Going to change the rear differential fluid sometime within the next couple of weeks.

Awesome choice!

Thinking about lifting it anytime in the future or just plan on keeping it stock?

I have a 1.5” leveling kit for it sitting in my basement. That’s about the extent of my lift kit. Lol!

Coming from leveling to lifting same truck, I’d recommend buying the Bilstein front adjustable shocks, the spacers “WILL” give your truck a much rougher ride especially adding larger size tires too. Just food for thought.

I agree it will get rougher. Ive had up to a 2 inch before and didn't like it because it was so rough. I'll put the spacer on for now but in the future I want to do the Bilstein front shocks as well as rear ones.

In the future, look into a well built lift. The levels will always put your suspension at bad angles but well built and reputable lift kits keep everything perfect angles. CST 4.5” lift, Zone, BDS all offer great bang for your buck with my favorite being CST, (IMO) Zone being the lowest cost. Big difference in ride quality from stock to level and from level to lifted. Good luck to you, enjoy that bad boy!

This past weekend I got the leveling kit installed as well as the Husky floor liners. I decided to order the Motofab 1” leveling kit and install it over the 1.5” I had already bought. I’m glad I went with the 1” because the truck does look better and it barely affected the ride quality. I plan on towing with this thing at some point so I don’t want to take all of the rake out of it anyway.

Nice!  How many miles are on it?  Don't forget the transfer case fluid.  Easy to change out and the ATL comes in a squeeze pack which makes it easy to do.
