My new truck! 2011 GMC Sierra SLE Z71 stealth grey metallic
Well folks, decided to pick this up. Cant say enough about Viking Buick GMC in Rochester, Minnesota. They dealt with me over the phone, the sales man talked to me again and again. Sent me pictures, answered my questions, and was very helpful in every way possible. They drove it almost 1400 miles to Virginia beach for me, and took care of everything I could ask for. Customer service above and beyond what I could have ever asked for.
Anywho, here are the details. Its a 2011 SLE in stealth Grey Metallic. 5.3 w/6 speed, Z71 package (required lol) It has the Chrome Essentials package, power tech package, and the Convenience Package. 265/65/R18 rims and tires. Bridgestone Dualer A/Ts. It came with the GMC mudflaps, GM 6 inch Nerf Bars, and a GM under rear seat storage box. I had no idea it was their until I got it today. I was pleasantly surprised. They added a Smoked Bug guard, and GM smoked Window vents for me, and to top it off, they sent it off to Line-X and had the bed lined for me. I went with a under the rail liner. I like that look better, I think its cleaner. If I ever change my mind, adding the over the rail will be easy, taking it off, not so much. So far, I have the UWS toolbox I had on it, and the bully hitch step on. And one GMTC sticker.
Future plans you may be wondering? Level it, maybe a size larger tires, a Diablew tune, a cat back exhaust of some sort, and maybe some light interior mods. I have a few ideas floating around in my head.
*** also has husky floor mats.***
Enjoy the pictures. Thanks for looking. And yes I kept it a secret, just for fun.

Wow! I'm so happy for you, you really deserve it! It looks like a really sweet truck and I love the color. It will be perfect for the family.
It looks like you have the sensors in the rear bumper but you have the hitch step, doesn't that deactivate the sensors? That is why I had to get rid of my hitch step. I always loved the look of the front end on the GMC over the Chevy. Have fun!

thanks for the kind words all. Part of the reason I went this route is for a warrenty. It has a 3 year, up to 48k bumper to bumper, and the remainder of the gm 5 year, 100k warrenty.
to answer your question Amac, i actually dont know if the step will mess with the sensors, I havnt driven it since I put it on. Ill find out tomorrow I think. and yes Erica, mods are required.
thanks for the compliments everyone. The wife is even a fan! She likes the remote start! The truck was almost perfect the way it was at the dealer. The
stuff i had them add was just wish list stuff. it was a 1 year lease return. compated to the price of a new truck, i got this for a deal, and its only got 17k on the clock.
this one felt right, alot of the other trucks I looked at didnt. hard to explain.
