    Cool Donyms Official Truck story with Video

    I purchased this 2002 Silverado LS in June 2009 after putting 300,000 on my old 2000 Silverado LS. This one had 70,000 on it when I got it and was in great shape as it was a one owner and he was a retired gentleman in his 60s. I had some plans for this truck the day I bought it but I never thought that I would go crazy with it as I have. Below is a list of mods and improvements I have done and a link to a digital scrapbook video that my girlfriend put together for me as a birthday present. Hope you enjoy.

    Nice video and I've always liked your truck. The paint is unique, but relatively simple, so it doesn't detract from the truck overall. I've considered waiting to get back in the country to do my mods just so I could do something similar as far as documenting the changes. Well done.
