    Post Progess on my 09' GMC Sierra SLT

    Hey guys, figured I'd start a thread that follows the progess of my new (to me) GMC Sierra. As of now, all I have done to the truck is a 20% tint to the driver and passenger windows (just did it today actually), added a Denali style punch grille, and took off the lower air valance. All feedback is encouraged! Thanks for viewing everyone!

    Next up on the list is the exhaust. Thinking about running true duals with 2 Flowmaster Super 44's. We'll see.

    Truck is looking good. Now you just need to work on your name since this one is white.

    Lol. I've messaged Steve a couple of times asking him to please change it for me, but for whatever reason there is never an answer. I definitely plan on changing it though

    And thanks Alex, when I bought the truck my immediate plan was to add a Denali grille to it since it was the SLT model with the heated leather, 20" wheels, etc. Its nearly a Denali so I figured why not.

    These are some of my favorite threads. Watching someone's truck grow over time is pretty cool. You definitely have a great foundation to start from!

    Just order my muffler and tips off of Summit Racing yesterday and received them less than 24 hours later! It is a Flowmaster Super 10 Series muffler. 3" inlet and dual 2.5" outlets, and two 4" stainless steel rolled tips. Can't wait to get this on in the next week or so, it is going to sound amazing!

    Cross another thing off the list!

    So, you changed your mind about running true duals on your pickup I'm assuming? Cant wait to hear what it sounds like either way! Keep us all posted on how it's coming!

    I've got huge plans for Truck Norris, but they're kind of extensive and take a while lol.. but I'm definitely going to be showing updates as they come as well

    PS.. good choice on the white

    I like the grille idea, but I would personally go with the CAI first, thats actually my next planned mod. Post up some pics whenever you have something done!
