    Well I bought a pickup to save miles on the Trans Am, an 01 silverado 1500 ext cab..... got any ideas for makin it look good?

    I'm getting front windows tinted for sure I'm thinkin 15%, then also was thinking a cab visor, pulling the trim off and putting on the new style silverado lettering, and some chrome.... Anyone got pics of something like this?

    Also thinking of a bull bar and side nerf bars, Again any pics?

    I wanna free up the exhaust some too, but not the typical redneck classpacks, just a nice tone and loud enough i hear it over the engine, unlike now... Like "classy deep rumble tone" not alot of drone

    well checked milage today, basically it seen worst case scenario, lots of idleing, gravel, short trips to town, and heavy footed driving.... 16.2mpg, i'm still impressed with that, Heres a couple more pics too...

    lol the car yea, but the pickup no, its bone stock performance wise, I'm planning a CAI and I'm thinking i'd like true duals with a toned down muffler... course figgure in a custom tune too, but im asking bout my options with regards to brands, fit, performance, etc

    just a odd and end idea... will the sounds of these muflers be roughly the same as if they were on a 5.7 LS1? My reason for asking is that i know where there is a sound bank with many many mufler, header, cat combos for the Ls1...

    Thanks Guys, just kinda a lil bit of an update, got some Cabella's Formed Camo Seat covers,XM Radio Mounted up, and Fitted Floor trays, got an appointment for the windows to be tinted on friday, im thinking im going to try for a 15% but I'm not sure if they make that, i know they do 10 and 20 easily, and i got 20 on my car, but wish it was a touch darker at times, but 10 is too dark, anyone got pictures of say a 15 or 10 percent tint on one of these?
