    Nice truck! Some Ideas
    1. Fender flares
    2. Chrome door handles, side mirrors, tail gate handle. Either the real thing which is relatively expensive or I think Putco makes some stuff at a fraction of the cost. ( They just stick on )
    3. Chrome Grill
    4. I kind of like the black though. So maybe scratch 2 and 3 LOL.
    5. HID lighting is always fun.
    6. Bed rail things. Some people have the pipes that run from front to back of the bed rails.
    7. Bed cover. Like the Tonneau ones.

    Ha Ha this is all stuff Im trying to do to mine.
    Your truck is sick, Keep it up.

    Here are some suggestions:

    Chrome door handles with chrome tailgate handle
    Airaid MIT with K&N filter
    Underseat storage
    Tonneau cover
    Bed rail protectors
    Homelink remote transmitter

    Since you have non-stock tires and wheels, did you use a tuner to tell the ECM? Also a performance tune would be a good way to go.

    A CAI on the NNBS Silverados are not needed as the stock filter box acts as a CAI. All you need to do is replace the restrictive resonator tube with the Airaid tube.

    Does your truck have a DIC? If no, you can get the replacement panel with DIC buttons.

    I've never understood that either. I actually like the golden bowtie logo on the front and back.
