Oh and picked up a Range device as well... the V4 noise was noticeable and 'some-what' irritating after the exhaust mods, but not huge.  Found a used Range for basically half of new and gave it a whirl....  actually fairly impressed with how well shifting has improved with V4 being disabled.

Found it in this thread:

 

You'll need to read through the first few pages to get the idea of what to do.  Deets for the cargo lights are in there.

Just ordered these.  I'm thinking about mounting 2 flush mount plugs on the underside of the roof spoiler (one at each end) connected to the beacon output on the 9L7 aux switches. That way i can use multiple set ups from the same output. Also makes it easy to remove the aux lights or lightbar for servicing.

Got a set of wheels for my 2500 work wagon because my 2013 busted a rim. Now that truck will get my 2018 hand-me-downs, ill put nice wheels and tires on the my 2018 and then have 3 full size spares for the other 2500's. Only other mods are wheel to wheel tubes, weathertechs front and back, 500L slip tank, homemade 2" square tube backrack, and 2-way radio with lo-pro long range antenna, good for about 50km depending on location. 

 

Putting the wheels on tomorrow, will post pics when mounted. Other than that I might tint the windows.

I have a 2016 GMC 1500 4x4 L83 work truck custom (bare bones with rubber floors) with a 6L80, G80 at 3.42, with a mechanical transfer case.  At present, it has the RC 2.5" level kit and BFG 32.5" KO2's - apart from that and the bedliner, she is stock until the warranty is up next year.

 

Starting this year, a 4 phase plan will roll out to build a great BC expedition rig that remains practical for daily driving...by my standards at least.

 

Phase 1 - Cosmetics/non-warranty violators, commencing as soon as debt/wife allows.

 

- Black Raptor bedliner full body paintjob

- CB radio and antenna

- Thule or similar no-drill roof rack

- Homemade tube bumpers with quick-swap winch mounts between front and back

and lower body exo cage (designs are WIP)

- 12,000lb nylon winch (Smittybilt X20 seems reasonably priced, but I am an open minded opportunist)

- Undercover swing boxes...maybe.

 

Phase 2 - Performance/reliability/quality of life upgrades.

 

- Kenwood double DIN deck, or equivalent system

- Diablo i3 Tuner

- Muffler delete (keep the resonator)

- Air Raid 200-543 throttle spacer

- Air Raid 200-285 intake

- Sonnax 6L80 zip kit

- Yukon 4.56 gears

 

Phase 3 - Endgame

 

- Rough Country 7" bracket lift w/front and rear Vertex coilovers...BDS's 6" coilover kit seems like the extra $1,000USD that broke the camel's back, but we shall see...

- US Wheel Crawler Stealth 17x9" wheels

- BFG KO2 35x12.5" tires

 

It will take some time, to say the least.
