    It's not just the size tires that would make you need to regear. My 33's weigh 76lbs each. That is a lot of unsprung weight to get moving. Trust me, with a 100 lb wheel tire combo you will want gears.

    Okay so how much would a regear cost?

    I am running Yukon 4.11's and they were around $300 for the rear and labor was right at $500. If I had to do it over again I would have went with 4.56's to have a bit more low end grunt.

    Regarding...." is the chrome that came on my truck when I bought the Texas Edition.. If it looks bad How much would it cost to get rid of it all of its worth it?"....IMO Removed/Replace the "Chrome"....By Buying Parts that are already Painted"Color Matched"....the Door Handles and Side Mirror Caps and Front Grill Shell (Pictured Below)

    ***Also there are several Company's, that sell these parts on E-Bay, and other company's to Check out for these"Color Matching" parts, would be....G.M.Parts Club and G.M.Parts Direct.

    Black Painted Mirror Cap,

    ***Black Painted Door handles,

    Black Grill Shell...its not the same Color that's on your Silverado, its just to show you what a Painted"Color-Matched"Grill looks like,

    ***On the Color Matching....
    Bottom Line, it comes down to your Budget, what you are Wanting/Looking Spend on your Silverado.

    ***x2 on what @ajarman has mentioned above........I would add, and that is, if you to 35in" Tall Tires, and/or change the Gears your Trucks Computer, will Need To Be Re-Programmed for this Change in Tire Size, and the reason is the following,

    ***When installing Tires that are Larger than Original Tires, or Installing a Ring and Pinion Gear Set with a Different Rear Gear Ratio, then what your Silverado has Now....
    .the Trucks Computer Calculates its Speed based on the Diameter of the Stock Tires. So with these changes, your Trucks computer doesn’t know how fast its going. As a result, the Automatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly and the Speedometer Readings will not be accurate (as required by law).

    ***On the....anyone have any opinions on an underglow.....not Cool on a Chevy Silverado.

Also that is the chrome that came on my truck when I bought the Texas Edition.. If it looks bad How much would it cost to get rid of it all of its worth it? Also... I will listen to exhaust and and be getting a new one real soon, Thanks! I also had a random idea of eventually a long while from now getting matte black or bed liner all on my truck... any comments?

    As far as a lift and warranty work, ask the dealer you are most likely to take the truck to. I have read many forums posts that some dealers won't do warranty work on a leveled truck and some don't care if the truck is leveled or not. I gather GM is leaving up the dealer to make the decision.

    As far as the chrome front end on your truck, do YOU like it? You liking it is all that matters, WGAF what someone else thinks about the chrome on your truck. Me personally, I like the chrome on the LT Silverados.

    Underglow IMO looks dumb, if you want to put lights under your truck, go for it. You are the person that the truck needs to please.

    OP, please see '99heartbeat truck as the perfect example of color matching and chrome coexisting on a GM full size.
