Progress on my 08 Silverado Z71
Just thought I would put together a thread of what I have done. Bought the truck used back in May 2011 with 36,500 miles on the clock. Its a Z71 extended cab. Came factory with the step bars and rain guard things. Currently has 56k or so miles and hasn't let me down yet!
The day I picked her up (they let me test drive it to lunch and back so that's why it still has the stickers on it)
1st mod: A set of 55w 5000k HID Low beams.
2nd mod: A K&N intake but I don't have any pics of that. Whenever I get around to it, I will take one and post it here.
3rd mod: Switchback LED turn signals. I bought the SMD ones and they seem to light up really well in shaded areas and at night but I am not happy with the daylight brightness of the signals due to the safety (hard to see the signal flash in the daytime)
4th mod: Rough Country leveling kit and 18" Fuel Boost 5.5 B/S rims with Falken Wild Peak tires (285/65)
5th mod: LED interior lights
6th mod: Bakflip G2 bedcover plus locking tailgate (which I bought at 4wheelParts and not a stealership)
7th mod: Cree projector LED cargo lamps (also bought Cree switchback turn signals for the front at the same time) In the video, pay attention to the tree to see the light output from just the cargo lights. The light doesn't dim like it shows, that's just my iPhone auto focusing lol)
Note: I will be switching out the tail lights for LED ones eventually and either swapping for LED 3rd brake light or just swap bulbs for LED ones. I still need to do an exhaust and tune but that will happen as funds allow. I will be updating this thread as I add more mods to the truck so stay tuned.
