    Default New Chevy truck guy!

    Greetings all. I'm a proud new Chevy truck owner. Never thought I'd be a truck guy, but here I am! I work for a GM dealer, as a salesman, and we traded in a 2008 Silverado extended cab, 2WD, LT1 pkg with 20's that just caught my eye. I couldn't stop looking at it and so I drove it home for the holiday weekend. I am hooked! Looking forward to getting a lot of good advice here and ideas on customizing my new (to me) black truck. It has 32k on it with a K&N CAI already installed. My immediate plans are some chrome door handles and mirror caps, tint the front windows to match the rear (really want to black it out but not a good idea here in Myrtle Beach) and some vent visors.

    Three of my neighbors have already stopped by to compliment my new truck! Funny, that never happened with my old Buick. (must have thought my grandpa was visiting)

    I do know a fair amount about these trucks since I sell GMC Sierra's but I know I can always learn more. Click image for larger version.

    Thanks for the warm welcome! My wife, who is not a truck person at all, actually likes it. We loaded up the brother-in-laws jet ski today and spent the day on the water. What an awesome day. Of course when we got back the truck got washed and rubbed down before the jet ski.
