    I got the TonnoPro HF-155, it is a tri-fold cover so you can still haul tall object in your bed when need be. The HF-155 is a vinyl covered hard tonneau cover.

    I would not get rid of the front air dam, it is there for a reason. The front air dam is used to direct air for cooling. If it was un-necessary, GM would have not put it on the truck.

    Leveling kits IMO are almost un-noticeable and not worth the price.

    I like the looks of the golden Bowtie, so it is up to you if you want to change it.

    I have a chrome tailgate handle, got it on ebay for ~$25. A red one might be on there.

    Here is a complete set in chrome:

    The air dams seem to rip off of most of our work trucks and they seem to run fine, but I'll give it a try and if it starts running hot I can always put it back on. I always say that I'm going to keep a vehicle until it falls apart but truth is, I don't. So in all likeliness, I'll probably tint the front windows, try to find a red tailgate handle, a set of "in the track" window visors, and a low profile toolbox. I'll drive it for 3 or 4 years and get rid of it. That's if I can make it that long once I see the 2014's up close.

    I do as well, it's too bad it never seems to last very long.

    That is a beautiful truck!! I was so glad when Chevy went back to the straight horizontal hoodline...I really do not like the "scowl" of the '03 and later models, which is why I bought an '01 last time I was looking. This truck of yours might get me back to thinking about a new Chevy....really, really nice.

    The air damn on the front is for fuel economy. We did a test on my buddies '13 silverado and there wasn't a difference in fuel economy so I'd say take it off. I take them off every truck I've had. And the z71 appearance package is awesome, ill be buying a duramax within the year and it'll deffently have the z71 package. Beautiful truck love the red
