    TW Ice is some great stuff. I use the claybar and ice shine. The ice shine Polish doesnt last only about a month but nothing and I mean nothing shines as nice once you polish it out nice. Im sure your black looks awesome but I have never had my red as mirror like from anything else. I had a Black Corvette and people always asked me what I used to make it shine like a mirror and NO swirl marks. I always told them I would have kill them if I told them!! LOL

    That is one sexy pickup bud!! Seeing as how Truck Norris is about to be payed off I'm thinking about upgrading to a 3/4ton or 1/2ton 4x4 myself. Well.. not really upgrading.. but buying another. I'm only 23 myself.. but I need something i can trailer Kristine to the drag strip with and I always end up pulling loads for people anyways. I was actually just down in Waco two weeks ago picking up two lm7 short blocks from BBJ autocores. I'll be getting down that way often more than likely, as they have really good prices on everything it takes to make the 5.3 into a total BEAST hehe.

    Anyways.. NICE TRUCK AND CONGRATS!!


    correction.. 24, i keep forgetting my bday just passed lol

    Thanks for all the awesome comments guys, can't wait to get some more miles on this truck so I can feel better about putting mods on it. Just wish I could find someone that wanted the stock chrome 20's with new tires as a trade for stock z71 wheels and off road tires. No luck though!

    I just did pretty much the exact same thing. Had a 2007 Silverado Crew Cab with 91k km on it. The dealership was looking for 07's for trade-ins because they don't have leased vehichles coming back anymore. Picked up a 2012 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab LS. Also did not get the Z71 because I want to lift it eventually.

    Did you get the 5.3 or the 4.8?

    I went with the 4.8 because gas in Canada is crack prices.

    I got the 5.3 since it comes standard on Texas Editions and since I live in Texas, we get 2k off of the vehicle already put into the sticker price. It's a pretty good deal all in all.
