    Cool Hello from Upstate New York!

    Hey all. Just picked up my 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500 this past Saturday. Must say, I absolutely love it.
    With 19kmi on the odometer she's really in mint condition. I come from the Subaru realm previously so I do have an itch for modifications.
    With this truck I don't plan to do much to her, but a list of things I am eyeing include: Extendable Tow Mirrors, Better wheels, 3" - 4" lift of some kind.
    And possibly a new grill, but I'm not sure at the moment. Any recommendations at all are very helpful. Thanks!

    Thanks! Hey I'm possibly looking into the Rough Country 3.5 or 4.75 inch lifts. Does anyone have any experience with these or RC for that matter?

    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    I have the 2.5" leveling kit and the torsion keys are re-indexed but your truck I think uses a different setup being different body style. I like the RC kit so far.

    Cool, I think the 3.5 will be sufficient.
