What's up guys! I'm glad to say I'm finally back in a truck.


I was known on here as 07CCSB with my brown NNBS Silverado that was lowered and lifted multiple times. Lol



Anyways after flipping a couple cars and OBS trucks I decided to buy me another NNBS.

It's a 2013 LT with the White Diamond Tri-Coat/Ext and Cocoa/Leather interior. I couldn't pass up the deal they gave me. 1-owner/75k miles/Great condition..etc.


When I bought the truck it was 100% FACTORY.

Since I've owned the truck I've cleaned it up a bit.




Updates as of 12/11/20:

Debadge + Demold
Ceramic Window Tint 5% all around
Shorty Billet 50.cal antenna
Rear 2" Shackles + Removed factory Block


Plans:

Bilstein 5100 shocks & struts
2.5” front leveling spacer
33” Venom Power Hunter X/T Tires
Speed Engineering 1 7/8” Longtube headers
FBO + Tune
Custom 3” Stainless Kooks Exhaust
Rear trac bars
Eventually I want to do 17” Methods on 35” bfgoodrich tires for a pre-runner look

Keep in mind 4/7 is a little low in the rear and will squat a bit. 4/6 is perfect. I know a couple guys that went 4/7 then went to 4/6 cause squat and 7 hits the bump stops on hard bumps if you don't notch

In for the build tho

edit: WAIT I just realized who you are... your old truck gave me the inspiration to build mine lmao

UPDATE - UPDATE - UPDATE:


Finally an update on the truck. I finally got around to installing the Bilstein 5100 adjustable struts and rear shocks. The Bilstein’s are set at the highest setting and a .5” top mount strut spacer came with the kit, through it in as well for a little more height in the front. The rear has 2” drop shackles installed and I couldn’t find my stock shackles laying around so I just left the drop shackles. I believe the rear shocks are a little bit stiff/bouncy. I love the Lean so I’m thinking about buying some rear shock extenders to see if that smooths out the rear suspension just a tad. The truck rides amazing. Doesn’t shake the entire interior of the truck anymore when driving on poor roads. They’re everywhere in Dallas, TX. Smh.


Ended up going with 285/55/20 Venom Power Terra Hunter X/T because my local tire shop had them in stock and they were the best priced. Paid $800 otd for brand new tires, mount & balance (First Discount in Garland; off of S First St. Tell him TJ sent you.) Anyway the tires look great, feel great and ride great. Not to mention the road noise isn’t bad at all. No rubbing or scrubbing anywhere. (Didn’t have to cut, trim or not cal mod) PLUS PLUS PLUS The tires have a 50k mile treadlife.


Also I have a great, reliable mobile detailer in the DFW area. Lmk if you need a mobile detailer for anytime, anywhere.


I’m planning on doing Full Bolt On’s with a Tune next with JPP in Rowlett, TX. I still have a couple more parts to order then get my appointment setup with Justin. Won’t be for another 2-3 months.

What do you guys think I should do to the truck next? I wanting to eventually run a mid travel kit up front with Lift Spindles & Coilovers. I appreciate any feedback and recommendations.



Thanks Guys, TJ (Formally known as 07CCSB with the brown crew cab chrome and candy teal FTS lift etc.)
