Hi all,

Last week I made one of the better decisions I have made in a long time and got back into a Chevy truck!

I have had four Silverados in the past ranging from standard cab/short bed/V6 to crew cab/diesel/dually with my last being an '07 extra cab with a 5.3L. My new truck is a 2014 Double Cab/Standard Box with a 5.3L and I am so happy to be back in the truck world.

As of right now, my truck is stock except for the side steps that I removed, but I plan on tinting windows this weekend... baby steps. I have some other plans down the road and I will be sure to update as I progress.

I look forward to seeing what this forum has to offer and possibly meeting up with some of you.

Cheers!

Josh

Here are a few pics...

Wow! Thank you for the warm welcome! You probably wouldn't like what I'm wearing today either. I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion... so here's mine... I like the chrome and the stripes so they're gonna stay. I'm going to completely ruin it by lowering too! So there!

Here's a quick update... tinted the front windows to match the back. Installed my sub under the back seat.

It gets the 2/4 drop on Friday. I can't wait! Other than that, I think I might be done. Still debating on whether I'm gonna do exhaust or not... I'm kinda liking the quiet ride.

Welcome! Interesting with the black mirrors and wheels, but I do like the wheels. Going to look nice lowered. Keep us posted.

Tomorrow is the day! I've never had a lowered truck before and I am looking forward to it. I just hope it comes out the way I am picturing it.

I'll post up some pics when I pick it up tomorrow.

All done! Rough country 2/4 drop.

Ride quality is great, drives straight and no vibrations whatsoever.

$630 out the door!

Truck looks really good, only advice I have is to colormatch the bumpers and trim around the headlights. The chrome just doesn't flow with the rest of the truck

Thanks! Good point and I have thought about it, but I think it would be too much red. I wonder what gloss black bumpers would look like...
