    Default New guy here too....

    Hey all,

    Name is Matt. Started out with a S10 2.2L and after a huge snow storm decided thats not exactly what we wanted. So we shopped for about a month and we got a 1999 Silverado Z71. 5.3L, dual exhaust.

    Any suggestions on upgrades to it? Here's what I've got on my list right now:

    Hitch (instead of using the bumper)
    Spray-in Rhino Lining
    New A/T tires (the dealership put road tires on...bleh)
    Nerf Bars

    I'm not sure what to get first...it has a drop-in liner thats starting to warp and I've never liked drop-ins so we're getting the spray-in eventually.

    Any suggestions and helpful hints appreciated!

    Welcome to the club.

    Sounds like you've got some sensible starting points.
    I would add a Filter, like K&N to the list of upgrades, if the truck doesn't already have it.

    Going from the 2.2L 4-banger up to the 5.3L must be like night and day for you. I bet you don't know what to do with all those extra horses.
