Sold the 05 silvy and I was handed down my fathers LMM for a graduation present.

Last pic of it


Here's the truck. 09 LMM z71, 100k miles, summit white
Dpf deleted, H&S mini BlackMax tuner
Has a level. And some XDs on it. Everything that makes up your typical dad truck haha.





Plans:
- Paint everything summit white. See how much an LML front costs me.
- Drop shackles in the back to truly level it
- 20x10s on 305s
-Tint it out
- new shocks
- straight pipe it
- demold
- debadge
- Put the stock rear bumper back on
- retrofit the headlights and paint the housings white/black

It has a dpf delete on it already and i want to straight pipe it. Probably do that tomorrow if I have time.

Wanna make it look like this


At this height

Lol thanks guys
Got out of college a year early lol. Glad to be done.

Just dropped the truck to get colormatched

Bumpers and grill and mirrors and tailgate handle for
480 lol
Thought that was a steal and that was with scuffing up all those chrome parts as well as smoothing the plastics

Backed it up with a 3 year warranty and he uses all PPG so I said good deal

Any recommendations on drop shackles?
I want the 2-3" ones. I don't pull Mitch but the boat and camper which attaches to the bumper hitch so I don't think issues with hitting the stops matter.

Am jelly of the truck and the fact that you're already out of school
Man it wasn't easy getting out early
I mean I still have classes but I graduate on the 6th of next month. Took 18 hours every semester and 10-11 hours in the summers. Total came out to 121 hours to get my bachelors of science.

Been taking some international business classes and only need 4 more classes to minor in that so I might do that next year before I head on to Med School

Where did u get handles from out of curiosity?
