    Before talking about the Sierra, I did sell the 03 Silverado 2 months ago. After 7 years of ownership, rust taking over, plus having an offer I couldn't turn down, it was time to sell.

    And....

    A week or so later I found this one on craigslist. Went and looked at it, turned out to be everything I was looking for except the price. Tried negotiating but walked away that day leaving my offer with him; and long story short we ended up making a deal 2 months later.

    About the Sierra; 2007 classic SLT LBZ Graystone Metallic, 70k miles, two previous owners making me the third. Comes with 2 way remote starter, Leer topper, Bedrug, and other grandpa accessories.

    Plans:

    Convert DRL’s to signals
    HID’s Done
    Switchbacks
    Clear headlights
    Clear bumper lamps
    Raise bumper
    Tow mirrors (color matched)
    GMC grille emblem (color matched)
    Remove bug shield Done
    Remove step bars Done
    Remove topper
    Remove yellow off tailights
    Swap BEDRUG left from the 03 to this truck
    Escalade door handles
    Color match tow mirrors
    22x12’s and 33’s ?
    4-6 Cognito ?
    Debadge demold
    Color match rear bumper plastics
    Center dump exhaust
    Clean/paint frame
    Clean behind flares
    Tint, 5% back three & sunroof, 50% fronts and windshield
    HD hood
    All interior LED's Done


    Soon as I got it home, pre-cleaning and de-mod pics:

    Damn dude, nice score! Didn't think we'd see the day that you sold the silvy though, but it was for the best.

    Can't wait to see how this one turns out. Congrats Kyle.

    Truck has had this BEDRUG and topper since new, there is not one scratch in the bed and literally looks like the day it was painted.

    What did you end up getting for the silveraydo if you don't mind me asking and what was the mileage at time of sale?
    I'm meeting with a buyer for mine today.

    Thanks Chris! BTW these pics are with the new camera lol. Still need some different lenses.

    No problem, It had 109k miles on it, sold it stripped down and stock looking for $11,000. Then I got $2000 for the preds and nittos from another guy. In the end $13,000 total.

    Nice! I have mine listed at 17, and won't take a dime less. 68k miles.
    That's exactly the info and reassurance I needed!

    Thats some low miles, plus yours has more done to it than mine did, and probably doesn't have rust holes in the rockers. lol

    I'm loving it so far, I just want to keep driving it :crazy: My first diesel, and first crew cab. Been only wanting one for 5+ years!

    Once you go diesel you'll never want to go back to gas.
    That's been my struggle for the past 2.5-3yrs with my 1500.

    Best way I can describe it, is its like putting a condom back on after not using one for a year lol

    Sad to see the 03 go but this looks like a clean truck and I know you'll build something sweet! 22x12s on 35s would be killer though IMO. :happeh:

    I would keep the camper around, because at least it's the nice looking one with solid glass down the sides, blends in nicely with the truck.

    Plans listed sound great but do you plan on getting into the motor or tuning any? I'm sure Matt could help you out with that lol
