    I finally had enough with repairs on the Duramax (needed injectors now) so I got up with Huck and we did a little swapping. So far I love this thing and I am shocked at how clean it is. I am so excited to be back in something this clean and well taken care of. I can't wait to do a few simple mods and just drive this thing. I already told the wife I think it needs some chop, so we shall see

    Here is a list of mods:
    211k miles
    Trans was new at 181k
    3.42 gear
    ‘05-up pickup front calipers, pads, NAPA heavy duty rotors
    stainless braided front lines -
    2” Belltech (or mcgaughys, can’t remember) spindles, 2” keys cranked a bit to add back stiffness -4” Belltech rear springs
    Spohn adjustable panhard
    Belltech front and rear sway bars and endlinks with poly bushings
    polished 20” gmcs -265/50/20 Toyos
    Tony’s headlights (Retrofit cleared Denalis)
    led C-shape tails
    LED interior lights and reverse lights
    HID and LED lows/high/fogs
    AVS ventshades
    JBL speakers to match BOSE ohm rating
    spike antenna/front and rear bumper spikes

    Planned mods
    New windshield (has a leak)
    Already installed Pioneer DD
    small system (SA10 ported with Sundown 1200.1)
    Already ordered Escalade Cluster
    Ordered clear corners

    Finally got the alignment right (Ordered Moog UCA with offset bushings), installed HID relays to get rid of flickering (swapped to 5k bulbs as well) and got the cluster re done.

    Looks good, it’s awesome that you guys were able to work out a swap deal and both love the vehicle you ended up with

    I thought the same thing man. I got to the point that I hated the duramax...I still miss having a leveled 4wd as a daily (just easier) but I have something in the works for another before long. I picked up a 2003 Z71 Tahoe for dirt cheap that I am going to have as a spare vehicle and for when the wife has to go to rural areas in bad weather. (Lots of dirt roads and she has an accord).

    I have a coolant leak to track down, and then I hope to do system and darker tint.

    I am torn on what to do with the steps...I do not notice them, and the kids still use them to get into the truck. My main thing though is that they do such a good job of keeping shit from being slung down the side of the truck...But it would look so much better WITHOUT them.

    No it wouldn’t lol. They look weird as hell without steps, hate seeing so much of the frame and the rear LCAs. Much cleaner with them
