One of the earlier pics I have from 07 after I bought the truck

I did some mods here and there mostly electronics

Really did not do much to the truck for a while, just little things here and there. In the beginning of 2011 someone broke into my truck, I went into a mini mod phase mostly cosmetic as I was still in the apartment and we were saving for a house.

Truck with LED's everywhere, projector headlights with HALO's, avalanche 3rd brake light, new LED bar and upgraded to a set of 245/75/16 General Grabber AT2's.

I will save you all from the visual mod pics.

If you want to read more of my adventures with the truck or see more of the visual stuff check out my build thread on GMTNation.

Now for the real work to make it into a truck.

MarkMC 2.5" lift
MarkMC 1.5" spacers (sold after I bought adapters)
Bilstein HD's in the front
Deeza end links all around
Deeza tie rod ends
MOOG ball joints
MOOG hub assemblies
Prothane urethane bushings (still need to install)
BDS 5500 shocks

The journey of the lift install was interesting to say the least. After 3 days and about 20 hours in work I got it finished. It was worth every bit of effort.

After the lift install I was offered a set of wheel adapters for a good price, so my mission to find a set of wheels started. I picked up some 16" Enkei wheels off of a Sequoia/Tundra.

I have a ton of future mods in mind.

Bull Bar (I know some will roll their eyes but it will work for me)
6" Hella Fogs
Roof Basket
Custom spare tire carrier
Lights on roof (most likely some cheap Navigators for now then switch to LED)
CB
Firestik 2
Body Lift at some point
265/75/16 Klevars

I have some other stuff and will update as stuff is done.
