    Default Howdy!!! Lone Start Silverado Owner here!!

    Howdy all,
    Bought my first pickup, a Silver Birch Metallic 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew cab, back in May and it has been a family hit ever since. Looking forward to meeting others and getting some goods ideas. It is an LT model with a 5.3l, 6 speed tranny, remote start, and auto fold mirrors.

    So far, I've done the DIC upgrade mod and installed a drop in K&N filter. I already have four painted handles in my garage I bought off of Ebay I haven't installed yet and a two painted mirror caps that are also waiting to be installed. I've got the GM 6" Oval steps on order and they should be here next week. I've currently got the factory alloy 17" rims, but I hope to get some nice shiny chrome rims, dunno if I should stay with the 17" or go with 20" yet though. I also hope to add-in a heated rear window eventually and maybe get the stereo controls on the steering wheel. I also want to overhaul the sound system to get way better sound than what I am currently getting from the factory. I also intend to have the bed and the rear wheel wells Line-X'd next year when I get my tax return money. I don't really have any good pics yet, but will get some soon.

    Thanks guys!!
