    Default New from East TX

    Hey y'all, another new guy here from East TX. My name is DJ and i drive a 2008 crew cab Silverado Z71. I work as a pipeline surveyor in the east texas and northern louisiana area, and have been doing so for about 2.5 years now. I've only had this truck for about 6 months or so now. I traded up from a 2002 silverado 2500HD 4x4 with a 6in life and 35s. So far my new-to-me 08 has a dumped Flowmaster and a pair of 12" Kicker CVTs under the back seat. Future plans inclue a Westin bullbar, 6in suspension lift and 3in body lift. I'm not sure yet what's the largest size tires i can run on that setup without trimming anything. Any information would be much appreciated, and i look forward to chatting and BSin with the lot of you.

    I can definitely sympathize with you...for me, lifting was definitely my best mod, especially since I off-road so much. Hopefully, you'll get back up there soon.

    Welcome to the club! I used to live in Tyler for a few years. I still go back every now and then (have some family in the area). It's a pretty good place to be.

    Anyway, you have a nice looking, ride there! Good call on dealing with the chrome, too.
