    Default Pimp My Denali

    looking for some ideas I could do to my truck. So far all I've done is added side steps and a Tonno Cover. I have about $2000 I could put into it. Give me some ideas to run with.

    Denalis are already fairly pimped as it is.

    My suggestions would be get a nice hard tonneau cover and I would put the chrome mirror caps on the side view mirrors.

    What direction are you going? my friend has a truck just like yours he's got exhaust,cold air intake, diablo Intune and leveled on 33s. Also has vent visors and line x. I think it looks amazing with the stock rims.

    I don't use the truck for towing or hauling, so I'm looking for HP. I know the main things I want to do are exhaust, and air intake. Outside of that, I really don't know what I'm doing.

    A CAI is not worth the price, get an MIT and drop in a K&N filter, it will give you the same results.

    As far as horsepower, the 6.2L is a very powerful engine. You will get a HP gain just by removing that water heater sized muffler and going with something a lot less restrictive.

    an airiad Modular Intake Tube is on my to do list. already have the K&N filter....

    for cheap you can have them chop out the stock muffler, weld in your muffler of choice and be done with it, thats what i did and I love how my truck sounds. threw a cheap black chrome tip at it here not to long ago and im a happy camper.
