    So I recently purchased a 2009 Silverado 4x4 with the 5.3l flexfuel and it has the no fear package on it so its lifted with wheels. I just finished putting on an Airaid Intake and I did the hypertech max econ tuner.

    I was curious as to what you guys thought would be a good next addition!

    looks pretty nasty so far, if i was you i would first maybe add some fender flares on it maybe add black fender well covers in the rear to match front and maybe do some bed protection, and just my opinion but i like cab lights, so that's all i would plan on doing so far if i was you good luck:great:

    I need to get some more pics. I have taken off a lot of the badges. I have thought about doing the black fender wells to match the front. Not too partial to the fender flares but honestly I have not seen many so I may change my mind once I start researching more. I will do a new bed liner pretty soon too I think, it has the one the dealership installs so its kind of the crappy plastic so I will wait until it's finally crappin out.


    What kind of headers/exhaust really open of some power on these trucks?

    you can pick from the following reputable brands: gibson, pace setter, jba, edelbrock. i have an 00 silverado w/ edelbrock shorty headers. it was well w/in my price range & i love it. it all depends if u want to get a full exhaust headers or shorty as well.

    i'm sure there are other members on this forum that can probably comment on the other brands and the performance gains.

    Nice looking truck, one thing though, I wouldn't wait to ditch the plastic bedliner. Moisture can build up and be trapped between it and the bed. I recommend replacing it with a spray on liner sach as Line-X or Rhino lining.

    I would do headers and exhaust, and spray in liner. lots of good companies and depends on budget. edelbrock is good and cheaper. banks makes a full system I beleive but they are on the high end. JBA also makes good but expensive headers. other exhaust companies were listed above. Great looking truck

    Hey guys thanks for all the feedback!

    Are headers and exhaust any sort of good power adders for these trucks? Or is it mainly sound?

    you get both sound and increase in hp. hp gain can vary from 10 - 25 hp for v8's.

    Okay I was looking around and I can't really find the gains for many of them.

    Are you saying they are going to be equal in respects to gains? Or is there a brand or two that get you better gains than the rest?
