Thread: Newb from IL

    Yo guys, just picked up my 09 LTZ Monday. First truck I've ever owned and I couldnt be happier. I honestly dont have any good pics yet as its been dark before and after work. I'm still figuring this thing out, the back up mirror thing is nuts!

    So what are the MUST DO mods?

    Right now I'm contemplating a simple grille update, nerf bar, and maybe some wider wheels. Maybe goin for a mild prerunner look.

    If anyone has any of these mods I'd really appreciate pics.

    Also are there any ipod hook ups for the stock head unit? I know the AUX is there but I'm looking for something that can charge and playback simultaneously like the one in my Monte.

    Also does anyone know what size tires I can get on this thing?

    I'll get some pics up friday, but for now here's my other toys so your not completely disappointed.

    Heres a teaser if you will...
