    What's up guys? I registered here yesterday and am now getting around to my introductions. I bought a 2005 Silverado earlier this week, it's a Z71 Crew Cab 4x4. It's got dual 3 inch exhaust into Flowmaster 40's and 4 inch stainless tips, which I will be changing asap. Entirely too loud. Anyway, 4 inch lift, 20inch wheels(changing out asap) and an extra set of 2010 Z71 wheels with 31.10.50 BFG All Terrains, Cowl hood, custom paint, black on top, silver from the top of the door down. Umm...Throttle body spacer, And I think that's it. Will be buying a CAI and programmer immediately. I like the truck, except for the fact that the transmission went out within two days of owning it. Luckily the guy I bought it off of had an extra tranny and gave it to me for free. So it'll be a couple weeks before it's on the road.


    A little about me, my name is Vince, I'm a machinist by trade, currently driving a truck for a water hauling company until work picks back up. I'm from a very small town in Indiana, there's one stoplight. And if you don't have a truck, you're assumed to like men. Needless to say after I got rid of my Ram 2500 CTD, I was eager to get back into another truck. I've been a Mustang guy all my life, I've still got the first Cobra I bought in 2005. It's a work in progress as I've had it painted, and haven't had time to put it back together. Welp, that's about it as far as my introduction. Any questions just ask! Also, as far as pics go, I have none :(. It wasn't on the road long enough to get any, I will however snap some when I go to install this tranny.

    Welcome to the site bud! This is definitely a great place to be, lots of help in basically every area you can imagine and lots of experience available! I'm actually an Indiana native... was only born there, and only lived there for a couple years in Bloomington (so i don't really remember it). But my biological father is still up there.

    Glad to have ya on the forum and looking forward to some pics! Sounds like a nice truck, despite the transmission problem.

    Thanks again guys, and girls. The paint sounds like it looks good, and don't get me wrong, they did a great job on it, but where they've separated the silver and black, they've instead of using a colored pinstripe, they've painted 3inch flames going horizontal down the side of the truck where the colors meet. It's tacky imo.

    Glad to hear the the seller helped out out with the tranny issue, especially if it failed after only 2 days of owning. Welcome to the club!

    I may be able to get some pics today, maybe. And thanks for the welcomes again guys. The seller was a stand up guy, even gave me an aftermarket gauge cluster, it's silver with chrome bezels and blue letters and numbers. Kinda looks like escalade gauges, but they fit the 03-06(07 classic) silverado/sierra's.

    Looks like it's been sitting for a while, but it's only been sitting a week, they had just mowed tall grass yesterday Lol

    I have a fender/door from a hunter green 04 to replace the fender, and a extra door for when these pesky deer eventually hit it. Lol

    Hate flames, love the hood though.
