Well here is my nothing special 2000 extended cab 5.3 Silverado. It was given to me just for the simple fact my father in law didn't want to trade it in. It was bone stock when given to me and all the oil changes were always made. It had roughly 205k miles on it. I have had it for a couple months now. There is alot of stuff I want to do but my budget is slow for the time being with 2 boys and their sports. Both play baseball and football.

Here it is the day I brought it home or drove to work. And that's not my truck that was bleeding all that oil.

First couple things I did was take the bug shield and visors from the windows. Still need to remove the rails on the bed also.

Added LED lights to the inside and to the license plate lights.

Next I picked up a painted grill shell of C-list. Its not perfect but i will get it fixed here soon. Also on the to do list is get rid of these headlights. I hate them. Looking to maybe get some like the ones on this truck. May also go with the SS front bumper also. Just not sure how well it will look on a truck that's not lowered much.

Next my loving wife surprised me with a gift from the boys. Took me a little while and research to get it in but I did. Still need to get the Xm hook up and I-pod connections to put in. I dont want to pull it out again until I have all the stuff for my amps and door speakers ( rca's and wiring). Also wanted to use this sub but it looks like I cant find a box for it to fit under the rear seat so I may be putting it up for sale or trade.

Picked this up this past weekend for 100 bux. Havent installed it yet due to the fact I have some other stuff I want done to the interior first. I want to get the dash, center console and some other stuff painted pewter the trucks color. Just not 100% sure on how I want to do the door panels and seats yet. May just go ahead and put the console in until I get every thing painted. The last picture is of a truck for sale around here that I am basing how I want the inside to look

I just uploaded it again. Not sure why it wasnt working. Def want to keep it clean and simple as far as the build goes. I am 50/50 on whether or not i want to do any major performance mods to it. I really want to get a reg cab after the 1st of the year and make a little street truck out of it but not sure.

demold, debadge, remove box chrome bars, color match handles, level it, put stock grill or CM grill, chrome/clear lights. exterior would look 100X better

Def going to be doing some more color matching, door handles, bumpers and probably mirrors. I already have a color matched stock grill on the front. Also want a cowl hood.

Oh I forgot I did put a spintech muffler on but I don't really like it.

From what it looks like I am going to be the one of few that doesn't care for the HD hood. Don't get me wrong it does look good on some but I don't think it will fit in on my look.

This truck is more my motivation, just wont be as low.

I see you have the tinted headlights like what is on my truck. Looks like you have HID's also. How is the light out put with them? I hate mine right now as I can see crap at night with reg bulbs.
