    Wasn't planning on making one but whatever, I'm bored

    2008 Silverado ecsb.. desert brown.. bought it out of family for cheap in 2016.

    When I got it, it needed some work. Nothing crazy.. body was straight, had a couple dents and scratches but overall the paint was pretty much perfect. Needed a front bumper, rear bumper, tires and some other small maintenance stuff

    The only picture I know of it being completely 100% stock. 2014? dem high school pic skills..

    after this the truck kind of sat around not getting driven much. Have a daily that I use so wasn't really using the truck a whole lot. Didn't do anything either

    July 2019 wanted to change stuff up and started ordering drop parts

    started lowering it.. truck got a whole bunch of new parts too.. new rotors, pads, hubs, belltech street performance struts/rear shocks, sway bar ends, probably more that I'm forgetting. plus painted alot of stuff up front

    also put the 1500 grill back on, I've since colormatched the bowtie, and also wrapped the impact bar. which isn't staying

    that's pretty much how it sits now, I know I'm missing stuff and there's a ton of pictures the site wont let me add
