    A handful of guys already know but i picked up a 2008 ccsb vortec max a couple of days ago. Its got just about every option available. (Leather, sunroof, oem nav/dvd headunit, dl3s, etc).

    The good- It has the L76 6.0l, 4l70e, 14 bolt, 4 wheel disc brakes and efans. It already has full exhaust (lts, xpipe, bullets, cutouts to a y pipe and a stock muffler), a tune and im pretty sure it has a cam but i dont have any info on it. Has a billet bowtie, billet grille inserts, cleared heads and cm front end. Already has a bolt in mcg notch and helpers also.

    The bad- dash is cracked, passenger mirror doesnt power fold or adjust but the turn signal works, couple of small fixable rips, chrome is flaking on the front interior handles, chipped paint on front exterior handles

    Immediate plans:
    Debadge tailgate -done
    Polish up the headlights -done
    Remove pinstripe -done
    New vmax badges with black "max" -done
    New fogs -done
    Tint front sides
    Swap my tahoes over -done
    Billet antenna -done


    Future plans:
    4/7 drop -done
    Magnaflow
    Brake upgrade
    New upper dash
    New mirrors
    Bedcover?
    Bedliner
    Tbss 24s
    Cm rear bumper
    Cai
    Chrome handles?
    New interior handles

    Overall im pretty happy with it, it has a few flaws but nothing i cant fix.

    Havent really had a chance to get any good pictures yet.

    So far ive removed the vmax badges since the passenger side was broken, polished the bowtie, and swapped my billet antenna from my white truck until i can get another one.

    Monday or Tuesday im gonna get the front windows tinted and possibly pick up some tires for the tahoes. I should have my new fogs and badges by then aswell. Planning on finishing the debadging, removing the pinstripe and polishing the headlights at the same time as everything else.

    Get a bakflip. Wasn't sold on them, thought they were gimmicky, but my pops just bought one and it's awesome. Works great, secure, and looks awesome.

    Same issue with my passenger mirror. Doesn't power fold. Lol. To swap the mirror motor out is easy. Just pop the glass out and remove 4 screws

    Congrats! I know you're happy. The white truck always seemed to give you problems.

    Thanks man. Plan on keeping it simple and somewhat reliable :rofl:
    This is basically the goal for right now. Besides a few small differences.

    Thanks buddy, hopefully it wont be long!
    :cheeky:
    Well the frame of the mirror has a small piece broken off. I found a set of cl last night for $125 in dfw. Ill probably just grab something like that and swap my caps over.

    This truck breaks the tires over so easy it makes my white truck look like a prius.
    Thanks man! Hell yea im happy. That truck was good to me for the first 4 or so years, then all of the problems hit back to back.
