    Same truck I got, only with Duramax, upgrade to 3500HD, and Allison. Turn the beast into a TOWING monster! Now the trailer... different story ;)
    SHNOOL's tow rig - 2012 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab 4x4 with 4:10 gears, 6.0 liter gas, and LONG bed. Gooseneck hitch, integrated brake controller, Onstar, bluetooth, and bare bones after that (crank windows and rubber floors).

    My truck is my dream truck . Its a fully loaded NBS 1500 Z71. I would love to port and polish the heads, have a full performance exhaust system starting from the headers, and do some custom paint work in the engine bay.

New edelbrock headers, Dana Solid axle swap(front and rear), dual 8" stacks exiting on the sides of the hoops, Varam air intake, high PSI fuel injectors, water-cooling system, delete the AC/Heating system(No need for it!), Kenwood*DNX9980HD Head Unit, 2 Focal Utopia Be Coaxial speaker sets(for front and rear), 2 FI Car Audio 15" SP4 Subwoofers in a Custom Cut through Bed Box(Bandpass, can't remember what type though), Rockford Fosgate amplifiers, with lights for a light show on the inside, and dynamited out the butt, blacked out windows( except the front will be 5% tint), HID projector headlights with color matched housing, 2-HID lights down under monster quad bar(one for the front and another for the back), 8 KC Pods for the front bumper(4 driving on bottom, 4 long range on top), marker lights all over, 4 PIAA-520 Fog lights in bumper, 2 reverse lights and 4 brake lights, AMP Power steps(maybe even figure out a custom dual step), fender flares, sway bar, steering stabilizers, internal roll cage, front and rear winches and hitch receivers, full body skid plate(helps aerodynamically also, for gas mileage(not that it'd be a concern lol)).

    My dream truck would be a fully loaded new Avalanche, swapped onto a Suburban 2500 chassis to make it a 3/4 ton, then with a Duramax/Allison swapped in.

    If money were no obstacle, I would keep exactly what I have... It would just be finished a LOT faster! (can I only pick ONE?! Cos I could go on and on all day!)

    My dream truck is a 1970 4X4 K5 Blazer completely restored with a 4 inch lift and 33 inch Nitto Dune Grapplers. To finish it off properly it would need a brand new LS7 motor and new 6 speed auto transmission.

    This could get you started.....hard to find one with the Dunes, and probably doesn't have motor/tranny combo.
