    Glad to be on this site. My newest (and hopefully last one for a while) is my '08 Silverado 1500 Z71 ext cab, 5.3l iron block AFM, FF. Had it for almost a year, 15k so far, love it. Made a fishing trip to northern MN with it pulling a bass boat, and many many trips to northern Michigan this winter pulling the sleds. Want to make a few minor mods and looking forward to advice and suggestions and to see what you guys have done.:great:

    currently in the drive:

    1970 K-20 350 4spd
    2004 Envoy 4x4
    '08 Silverado

    1970 K-20 (different one)
    '79 K-15 GMC Suburban
    '85 S-10 ext cab 4x4 325k on original motor
    '95 GMC Jimmy 165k like new when sold
    '05 Colorado z71 crew cab I-5

    Coming soon...1970 Chevelle SS

    Welcome to the site.

    I think you have personally financed GM's coorperate offices with all the vehicles you have owned.

    Thanks to both. A few things I've done so far...ARE camper shell, bed liner with Beg Rug overlay, tinted windows. A few things I'm considering...

    • 2" Front coil spring spacers

    • Seat covers...either GM's pleather (12499913) or neoprene. If anyone has either, let me know what you think

    • Floor mats...Cabela's Trailgear 2 (weathertec)

    • Exhaust upgrade-stock location, just muffler swap..looking for a nice deep throaty sound, but nothing loud

    Wabana Lake, just north of Grand Rapids. My grandfather in-law has been going to that spot for 51 years. I've been twice now. Good times.
