This is GMC #4 for me. Bought a new 2007 when the body style changed, then a 2009 to get a 6 speed trans and Bluetooth, then traded that one in for a 2011 to upgrade to a 4x4.

On Friday I traded in the 2011 for a 2014 SLE Z71. I wanted an SLT but for some ridiculous reason they wouldn't discount the SLT like they would an SLE, so I got a pretty loaded SLE and I'll have to survive without LED driving lights. It has navigation, heated seats, backup camera, underseat storage (very cool), and the IntelliLink system has been very impressive.

I wanted leather buckets, but I'm not sure if that's available on the SLE so I got cloth buckets and am having the dealer put Katzkin leather in it next weekend as well as the painted wheel arch moldings (never did like the black) and tinted windows.

This truck drives so much better and quieter than my previous trucks. I have been more than happy with it so far.

If it will make you feel better ZF, the LEDs aren't driving lights. They're only DRLs. Just clear the stockers & add Triton switchbacks & you're set.

Truck looks good. What did you give for it if you don't mind me asking? PM me if you'd rather.

nice how much do the painted wheel arches run?? Id love some for mine.
They are $650 from GM and of course they don't come in every color, just a few of them. Fortunately silver is one.

It would be cheaper to remove the stock ones and have them painted but I don't want to ride around for a few days with no trim.

i just got an emerald green metallic SLE also. i got the cocoa dune interior with the buckets and I'm adding my own katzkin too. i really wanted the cocoa dune interior but not with tan leather so I'm doing cocoa brown leather with tan stitching to match the rest of the tan interior. I'm doing the color matched flares too. Im just trying to decide if i want to fully color match everything or leave the chrome bumpers

Here it is with the tint, painted fender trim and some pics of the leather.

Love these new silver trucks. Btw, is your garage floor painted red or stained or something. Gathering ideas on what I want to do to mine.
