    Default New in Ohio

    hey guys my names Wil, im a Technician for the 3rd largest Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep Dealership in the country located in NW Ohio. I may work on the Chryslers but im Chevy deep down. Hence why i am driving a 2000 Z71 Silverado. Picked it up all stock, slowly changing everything.

    Currently have:
    3" Zone Body lift
    33" BFG KM2's on 17" 2008 Yukon Wheels
    05+ Taillights
    Hid's and Hidden fogs behind the grille
    Bedlined the bottom sides
    K&N Intake
    Flowmaster 40 series exited out the side by the tire

    always looking for more and more parts. and different ways to change the look of it.

    Glad to hear "Chevy runs deep", welcome to the site! Working for a dealership that doesn't sell GMs are you still able to order your GM parts at a discount? Assuming the dealership sells used cars and has a connection with the manufacturers. If you do that's cools since you can do the installs yourself too.

    Yup! dealership connections are fantastic. plus it doesnt hurt that ive got some friends on the chevy dealer side and can get me a hook up whether i can do it myself or not. and hell yes i love being able to have a lift and all my tools at my disposal. i hate having to rely on other people to get my stuff handled. plus.. i love getting into it and knowing after youre done, that you made it happen. makes you appreciate it alot more!
