    So some of you know already but I'm bored and figured why not make a thread for this truck

    Last year around this time I bought a 2006 BMW 325 for a daily. Got it cheap because it was overheating. Needed a water pump and thermostat. Paid $1700 for the car and another $800ish in parts. Fixed it myself and daily'd it for around 8-9 months. It was a fun little car for what it was.

    One day I had a conversation with Wesley (Gannon) that led to me planning on buying his blue rcsb sierra. He offered the idea of trading my car +cash for the truck. I jumped on it and we made the trade mid February.

    Ever since then, I've been daily driving the truck and loving it. I've done a handful of things to it but it already had most of what I would have done anyway plus some. Ill try to make a mod list of whats done but I'm sure ill miss some.

    Ram wheels went on the black truck and the Silverado 20s went on the 245/45s and then onto the blue truck. The blue truck saw 3 sets of wheels in 4 days. Lol.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    That looks badass. I admit I’m not a huge fan of the HD hood on many rides, but it looks damn good on your truck. Makes me reconsider doing that to my ‘03 Yukon.

    It really is. I love driving it. Completely different world than the crew cab although I think that truck may actually be quicker lol.
    Thanks man! I love it. One of my favorite mods for sure. I love the subtle things that most people wouldn't notice.

    looks like a fun truck. I think a set of GMC 20's would be a better fit for it.
    I always liked the 03+ grill with the 99-02 bumper but can see the preference for the bumper as well.
    One thing i did to my GMC was plastidip the air dam black - thought it cleaned up the front end nicely although the grey doesnt look too out of place.

    I probably wont change wheels again unless I come across another steal on some oem wheels or I pick up a drag pack. Lol

    I dont mind the 03 grille with the 02 bumper but I just think the 03 bumper looks more aggressive and flows better. I've been trying to find another valance that I could paint but I might end up doing the plastidip for now!

    If that ones in good shape, just tape off the bumper/front of the truck, scuff with a scotchbrite pad and spray that one with black Krylon. That’s what I did on my old red truck for all the black plastics and it worked great and held up really well.

    It has a crack but its really not noticeable. It'll just be temporary until i get the 03 bumper ready to go on anyway. I've just been putting it off lol.
