Finished my LED light bar installation into the bumper slots of my truck:
One minor problem:
One of the LED bars isn't a driving light bar. It was packaged in a box that said it was ... and what I paid for was supposed to be a driving light bar. This didn't become apparent until testing -- when the beam patterns were oddly different. I've contact Rigid about the problem. This means I'll have to take it all apart, again, to do a light bar swap ... due to an error that wasn't mine. :(

@SurrealOne looks real good, sorry about their error. Do you have those integrated as blinkers as well?-K&N Air Filter

I'm now trying to find where my new leak are coming from, they are appearing every where and for no reason.... very annoying since the truck has been great for months.

I worked on my wiring of a fuse block and some relays to go with the overhead switches I installed. It's not as clean and elegant as Surrealone's wiring is, but it will be functional and look close to stock.
Yesterday I pulled a set of seat heaters from a Ford Focus at Pick-n-pull. Today I tested them and removed the leather from the bottom part of the rear passenger side seat to see how difficult it will be to install heaters in the rear seats. It only took a couple of minutes to disassemble because GM holds the leather to the contours using velcro instead of metal rings like the Focus. With some minor trimming of the heater pad to accommodate the velcro, it should be really easy to install the seat heaters back there.

I have determined that what ever happens, my current truck will either be garaged or sold this year and replaced with a new or new used model.
It is my daily driver, I don't have a second vehicle, and don't want the expense of maintenance on a second vehicle (Tax, title, plate, oil changes, tires, etc). I want 1 working vehicle.
My choices are to go with a 2014 and eat the depreciation since I keep my vehicles 12+ years or to go with a 2011-2009 and save a bunch on the front end and eat crud on it on the back end like I am doing now the my current truck.
Either way, they are money pits.... do you want to bend over now or later? At least with the new truck you have a full warranty.

Not trying to convince you not to replace what you have -- just pointing out that it's fallacy to think there are not cost-effective means around the warranty issue. Heck, having a small econobox to drive in addition to a truck might actually be cash advantageous -- as you could drive the econobox for commutes and the truck when you need a truck. (You know -- the right tool for the job approach.)

my cousin hasa 08 silverado and a 04ish focus. drives what he needs when he needs it.
another option nak, would be a 2011/12 certified used, gets most of the factory warrenty, and you dont eat all the depreciation that you will with a new one.
im glad I went that route.
