    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.:lol:

    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.

    Love it. I wish mine came with an under seat compartment. I had to build one because I wasn't going to spend $200 on one.

    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!

    Congrats man!! Love the truck, great color and I really like those wheels. Be sure to keep us updated on what you do to it. We have pretty similar trucks and I wanna see which direction you take it.

    No copying!!!! :p

    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.

    surreal, i think im gonna leave the molding and badges for now, see how I like it. the flex fuel badge will be leaving tho, most of the lettering is gone anyways, all thats left is u e l. from Flex Fuel.

    Amac, found out today that my hitch step does disable the sensors. I may leave it tho, as I can still see since I have the backup camera.

    drove it today to go get a haircut. the thing moves! really happy with the truck so far. cant say to much based off the few miles ive driven it so far, but so far, so AWESOME!!!!

    indeed i did sir. no sense in having two trucks. we are selling the car and just going to have the truck.

    save some money on gas, insureance and all that.

    Speaking of gas, what kind of MPGs are you getting so far? Mine is a pig on fuel, right around 14.0 MPG but since I put on a tonneau cover this week its gone up to 14.7, not sure if its coincidence or what.
