    Default New from Illinois

    Hello everyone, my name is Chris and I am new here from the NW burbs of Chicago. Just purchased a 2013 Silverado LTZ Z71 on Wednesday and am looking forward to sharing and learning about the new Silverado here. This is my first full size Chevy truck and have a lot to learn. I plan on personalizing the truck a little at a time and am debating what to start with. Have started researching a leveling lift, but haven't decided yet. Thanks for your help! Chris
