Welcome Hilverado!! Nice looking truck. In July I lifted my '10 CCSB and went with the 6.5" Zone suspension lift. LOVE it!!!!! Had a lot of conversations with WildChevys above who also has a Zone lift. Great lift for the money. Don't cut corners when lifting your truck…..I'm so glad I went with Zone…love the lift…it actually rides better than stock even with 33.5 inch Toyo's AT II Extremes!!! Bill

Thanks for the welcome! I had an 08 LT crew up until Aug 21 when I as totaled...I pick up my 09 Sat and will categorize and prioritize the mods for the truck. Just finished building a 383 for my Impala so that gets swapped in before I can touch the truck.

Might have to lay off on the dates with the ladies and such....you know,...for the greater good. Lol

All the best folks!

Oh also, what are the first tier or lower cost mods to be done first? The 09 is an LTZ 4x4 with every option possible it seems.

I'm looking at cold air intakes, possible muffler swap, and other minor changes first. I need to replace one of the color matched bumper pieces...not sure how good the ebay parts are but it appears I'll have to paint a chrome piece.

Yea it was a bummer but I'm still here and if it were an option I'd have bought the drivetrain and swapped it in a track car or possible a mid 80's C10 shortbed.

Welcome, I know all too well about project cars requiring motor swaps. The first thing people will suggest you do is debadge the truck and do the GMFS appearance package.
