DD 1997 Chevy Silverado

I have had this truck for about 6 months and well i thought i might as well start a build 2 show what i have done.


First stage i got a new front bumper (because i want a painted one) and a roll pan as well. Then the windows where tinted ( limo back 35% sides) pluss a custom SILVERADO sticker for the front. Also got some narley headlight covers and some taillight covers black tinted 2 match the trucks theme. Then a magnaflow exhaust was put on 2 1/2in inlet 3in outlet then finished with magnaflow stainless tips with 15 / angle. But then my favorite the custom hitch hiden under the roll pan and the licens plate flips up for the receaver. Another tight idea i really liked is i took out the bench and put in buckets. They where out of a 2002 chevy venture mini van and work very good (have the smallest brackets so it fit like a glove. Then a 1999 tahoe center councle.

The next stage was the lift that was needed 2 set off the looks of the truck. I got a SKYJACKER 6" system (not the kit with blocks) it was $2300 but well worth it because it rides great. I then got some 315/75/16 MTRs on american racing rims and new center and lugs for $300. (not very good tires but rims are great .. geting tsls tomarrow). The lift was instaled by Hill rd. truck accessories. The whole front end had new parts all around. Then the frame was painted gloss black because the previous owner did a nasty paint job ( had white overspray all over the frame). Pluss but some steps on because the G/F was bitchin bout it but takin off when i get the tsl.
