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!

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

Yeah man I was quoted prices that were higher than I was willing to pay at the moment, and I heard there are sometimes problems in the newer trucks with the o2 sensors when running true duals. (Don't know if there's anything to this, I'm by no stretch a mechanic. lol) So I went with the Flowmaster Super 10 series with duals straight out the back. Will have it installed by next weekend and I plan to make a before and after video.
And I hear ya about the plans and how expensive it gets lol! The exhaust is the last of my mods for the next few months, because most of my upcoming plans are more expensive. You should create a thread about the progress of ' Truck Norris', I like seeing the journey a truck takes.
