I sold my 2007 Sierra a few weeks ago, as I was looking to get into something a little newer and lower mileage. It took a couple of weeks to find exactly what I was looking for, but I ended up getting lucky and finding the truck I wanted at a local dealer. So anyway, here she is..

2012 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD. Duramax. LTZ with black leather, navigation, etc.

I am loving the truck so far. Future plans.. I am considering doing the colormatched front end. In the spring, I will definitely level the truck, wheels and tires and probably some NFabs.

Welcome to the duramax world. Just a leveling kit with 295 trails or toyo mts look awesome on these trucks. Currently waiting on tires and I'll slap those wheels and tires on mine.

Yeah, I would like to do a color-matched front end. I was considering maybe just vinyl wrapping the chrome grill and bumper, but not sure what I would do with the lower valence. I may end up trying to find some paint-able pieces.

I run a custom wheel and tire shop for a living, so I will definitely be doing wheels and tires here before long. I would really like to run 22's with 35's with a level and fender mod, but not sure how feasible that will be. One benefit to having a wheel shop is there are plenty of wheels and tires in stock to test fitments!

She's starting to look like a truck now! I just finished installing a Cognito leveling kit with Bilstein 5100 shocks all around. For wheels, I went with another set from BMF. This time, went with the REPR's in Death Metal Black and wrapped them with 35x12.50 AMP Terrain Master Mud Terrain's. Also installed a set of NFAB's.

I like the tires really well.. This is my fourth for fifth set. I run a custom wheel and tire shop for a living, so I go through wheels pretty often. The AMP's are really a great bang for the buck tire, as they'll save you about $100 per tire as compared to a Nitto or Toyo MT.

The wheels are 20x9 +0MM with 35x12.50 tires. I'm clearing them with about a half inch of rake, and the fender mod.
