    The best looking grocery getter out there :great: but drug runner, so you have secret compartment in the bed and run back and forth from Canada with drugs for CVS? I see, so that is how CVS does it. LOL

    Just wanted to add the latest changes to this thread, New tires, not really a mod just maintenance. Although I did go from 305/50/20 to 285/50/20 and a sportier tire. Hankook Ventus ST, they have a directional tread pattern and handle awesomely, very very good in the rain, best riding tire I've had so far.

    The other change was definitely a mod! Hellwig rear sway bar. Can't believe the difference this makes in the handling, makes the truck so much more surefooted. Just making a left turn onto the road and the rear end doesn't feel like it's "falling" over the crest in the road just feels so much better and being able to take on and off ramps at speed is awesome. This was such a great addition that I believe I'm going to upgrade the front bar to a bigger size.

    Sorry Alex, didn't see this until l now! Sway bar was $212 on Amazon, but shipping was expensive. I ended up getting it from Summit for $220 or so with free shipping.

    Made another change a few weeks ago. Head pipe rusted through on my exhaust system, the muffler rusted a couple of years before. It was the Gibson dual sport system ( "aluminized", not stainless) that exited straight out the back. I called Gibson and they said to send them a pic and they would give me a warranty upgrade to a full stainless steel system, so I decided to change it up and had them send me the Super Truck system that exits in front of the rear tire. Doesn't look too bad, I think, and it is a lot louder, which I like....a lot! No drone at highway cruise, but a deep thunderous roar when you get on it, overall I'm pretty happy.


    Rusted Headpipe.

    Liked it better leveled... Just joking :rofl: Looks great and I have been in a 5.3 with that cat back and it does open up at WOT and sounds amazing.

    That is great customer service on Gibson's part.

    Yeah, I was actually surprised as I originally called to confirm the part number for the system I wanted. They were the ones who offered the upgrade, I didn't have to bitch or anything! LOL. I really do like the sound of it too, the old system sounded pretty good but this tops it by far!
