Truck #1 is a year older, but has all the add-ons I want. Truck #2 though is a year newer and the exact color combo I want. Which would you go with?

Both look nice, but I like truck #1, assuming its an LBZ+6spd allison as well.

Option-wise I think that thing is a better deal, assuming both trucks are in equal shape otherwise. Those transfer flow tanks are $800 ( http://www.transferflow.com/gm_tanks_0.html ). He's got the exact same radio setup I do it sounds like... that's about $2k (a little less now, probably). Sunroof was 1k. RSE DVD was 1k. Line-X was $400. Not sure on the trans cooler. Guessing exhaust was at least $600. backup cam was prob $300. Level kits are $350 I think. No idea on the cost of the towing options. Programmer was $400. Colormatching wasn't cheap, and the truck looks frickin' awesome right out of the gate. That truck literally has every feature or mod I'd ever want on one. My math says that thing has $6-7k more options and mods than the other. I know mods aren't worth shit used, they'd certainly sway my decision between trucks.

I say 2, I dont like buying other peoples projects. That way myself and trusted friends can do all of the installs and I know it will be legit. Get the one with more factory options and build it with the money you save
