Sitting here with lots of nervous energy today and I realized I never started a build thread ( not that I've done a whole lot in comparison to some), plus I figure it'll give me a place to post up questions/things that wont get lost as easy.

Details:
2004 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 - bought 12/07 w/43k on it
Leveled, Bilsteins, Esky 18's, CAI, Black Bear, Dynomax Race Bullet, 4" Stainless tip over axle, Big 3, 200a Alt, Pionner DVD, JL components, Pioneer 10", L.E.Ds, H.I.Ds Low/Fog 6k,Esky Cluster, 25% Tint rear, 35% front, color matched handles, esky interior handles, DL3s

Pictures from along the way:



Debadged/Demolded



No more pinstripe and a quick detail





Antenna delete mod/esky cowl piece



Leveled


100k


Inside




18" Escalade Takeoffs



W/black bow tie mod



Another detail





CGM NJ Annual Meet Year #1 W/Khaos,Ginger,Bassmaster

CGM NJ Annual Meet Year #2 W/FFB,Ginger,Khaos



All my favorite things about fall



As it sits now



There is a bunch of things I've had to fix, most are the typical issues with these trucks (EBCM, ISS, Cluster) and a few things I've done that I done that I don't have pictures of (CAI,footwell lights, full led interior and exterior lights, big 3, cleared headlights).

Future plans are to get the rockers done, 06 valance, get the tailgate handle that's been sitting in my basement painted, Weathertechs, a good detail, color match mirrors, replace carpet, chrome lp lights, e-fans, paint grille insert, and
whatever I else I'm sure I am forgetting
Its been 120k miles and 9 years, most of which it spent as a DD. This past summer I picked up a beater (2000 Infiniti G20) to slow down the wear and tear a bit. Through a combination of a few things I finally have a little more money and time to play with it and am starting to take care of things that I've put off (headliner replaced, getting rockers repaired) and get excited about it again

I'm 98% sure this is the first time I've ever seen your truck. Looks good!
Thanks, I don't post it much because its not really anything special, especially compared to a lot of the trucks on here. But I like it, only wish it was leather interior and had a sunroof.

Nice build so far! Clean simple looking Silverado :shake:
Thank you sir, was the goal.

Lol, this will likely be the same. And honestly, idk, I'm picking up a set of low mileage 275/65 18s this weekend to replace the original Bridgestones that have likely been on those wheels from the factory. Other than that, I'll probably keep these for a bit until I find another set of GM takeoffs and go from there. Can't really justify 2k on wheels with le babeh and a house, but I've done worse.
Been thinking about spacers too, make it look a little wider.

275 actually make a difference, friend had some on his nnbs and it actually did make a difference. Spacers couldn't hurt.

Yeah Im anxious to see how they look. Spacers are on my to-do list for sure once I get the new tires mounted. How thick I'm not sure yet.
