Here's the new project, a 2015 Chevy Silverado LT2 Z71 4x4 regular cab short box in Deep Ocean Blue Metallic. My father spec'd the truck the exact way I would have ordered it last spring, every option available in a regular cab. He put 2680 mi on it from March to October and it's been in storage since (been pulled outside to wash it a few times). He still has his 08 silverado and didn't have a need for this truck so we worked out a deal for it.

The day it came home from the dealership:

How it currently sits: (still stock besides windows tinted @ 20%)

I'm not planning on lifting this one like my '08 as there are some new laws in the province here that kick into effect July 1st that target modified vehicles. With that being said the plans are:

- clear headlights and may retro in a projector
- colormatch tail gate handle / front emblem
- debadge / demold
- tint windshield
- leather swap
- 2.5" level with my 33/22 hostage toyo setup I kept from the '08 (also may look into a set of 22" reps instead)
- eventually would like to find a different rear bumper ('14 all terrain non-step version likely)
- trim front valence
- CAI likely another airaid kit
- magnaflow cat back system dumped over the rear axle

Once I bring the truck home mid June, I will update this thread with some interior pics and likely with the new wheel setup on as well.

Maybe down the road. It's going to stay realitively stock until the warranty is up.

Thanks man, what kit did you go with on your truck? Any change to the rear blocks?
I just got some ebay 2.5 kit that goes under the strut. The rear was still higher than the front after i installed it so i just added shackles to make it look more even. Eventually ill probably put the stock shackles back on and go with a lift spindle

I got the chrome trim off them no problem but getting them open was a bit tougher. I hope to get them done this week sometime.
