Thread: New guy in VA

  1. #1

    Default New guy in VA

    Hay all! Just joined about 5 min ago.......I have a 2009 Silverado Z71 ext cab LT. It is totally customized. Here is what I have so far.....(not much left I can do): 6" BDS suspension lift, 17" AR Tactic wheels, 35x12.50x17 Nitto Trail Grapplers (currently....going to Mud Grapplers on next set), 3" pipe into a Super 44 Flowmaster to 4" adaptors then to 5" diesel tips, Diablo tuner, bed cover over a spray in liner, custom paint on tailgate (Black Widow spider web air brushed), window tint, Blacked out head and tail lights (done myself), and tow mirrors. So far thats all but Im going for cab lights, winch bumper (front and rear), and possibly a brush guard with lights.

    Im a diesel mechanic and have been doing this for around 12 years. 99.9% of the stuff I work on is over the road tractors. Smallest is a B model cummins.

    Oh yeah.......Im in VA! Anyone else?

    Nice lookin truck. You don't see many lifted trucks in VA. Well, I lived in NOVA up until mid Dec, then transferred to LA. I kinda miss VA, especially after registering my truck in Welcome to the site. Tons of useful info here. And, yes...there is a ton more you can do to your truck.... just check around and see what everyone else is doing, you will get ideas for future plans.

    Thanks everyone.....I have been a member of a Ford site even owning a Chevy. I had a 2005 FX4 that I traded on my Z71 and just knew all the members, some even personally. I think its time I join a group that will help me in the future.
