Thread: Progess on my 09' GMC Sierra SLT

just read thru the whole thing aswell.
and i gotta say man, nice ride, between the simple mods like tint, the tonneau, and ditchin the air dam; and the more expensive ones like the leveling kit, the headlights, and the denali grille, it's all come together great and you have a very clean, sharp lookin ride!
a simple way to spice it up under the hood thats inexpensive is to color match your fan shroud, engine cover, and fuse box. I think the white will look great and really stand out visually under there.
My Truck is Dark Forest Green and Silver Two Tone, and opposed to going chrome i went with predominantly black mods to give it a Darker, and bear with me here ~ tougher appearance lol.
But liking the way the Red Z on the Z71 sticker stood out i decided to go with red as an accent color, which is what color i chose to paint my under hood plastics. Sometimes a multi color scheme can look really good, as long as you dont go over board. Just somethin to remember.

@RadoRage Thank you for reading through everything and your compliments as well! I'm glad I could help you maybe find a sense of direction on how you want your truck to turn out. If you start modding, make a progress thread!
And here is a pic of my trucks new look again. Parked outside work next to a guy driving a 7.3. His might pull mine down the road but which looks better? haha

sounds real mean dude!
i dig it!.. something you may want to do is throw some mudflaps at it, keep the paint nice around the wheel wells.
or not, its your truck :-P

looks nice. ive been toying with getting the air aid modular intake tube rather then doing a full CAI.

Just some updates. I've had the k&n intake on for about a month now and I really like it. I can notice the more reactive throttle response and it brings my exhaust to life a little more and let's it roar a bit deeper. I also seems like i picked up about .2 mpg so that's a plus.
I bought a set of 305/55r20 Toyo Open Country A/T's today off Craigslist for $400. They have about 65% tread left so that's not too bad of a deal. Gonna get them put on sometime soon but I am debating on adding 1.5" wheel spacers to give the truck a wider stance. Also, I plan on having to do some trimming my wheel wells for these to fit, I'm not ready to lift just yet.

usally wheel spacers are a bad idea, hard on wheel bearings and such.
