Yeah dude you probably went with the right thing going the base model. My truck now is the SLT (heated leather, rear view camera, power pedals, etc) and I'm SPOILED, I hate it sometimes lol. My last truck (06 Silverado) was a work truck and honestly it had all I needed. Sad thing is I am so spoiled I couldn't settle for less than SLT/LTZ. Bummer. And get on that grille! Would make your truck look sick.
