    like tomorrow, lol can't wait I don't have big plans (Yet) but I like to make things a little different, maybe eventually a 4" lift and some other goodies.
    she's a 2018 Silverado 4wd Z71 LT 2LT, 5.3L Crew Cab, Standard box 6.6ft 153.0" black on black, I splurged and got her with a 6yr/60k bumper to bumper warranty
    first she'll get a alarm with 4g and gps before I start adding anything, needs a bedliner
    window tint, make her growl with a muffler and probably go with a Airaid MIT and a dry filter, maybe mod the airbox. led upgrades for whatever doesn't have led already. Some kind of Tune perhaps BB since I have the autocal sitting here already. Might start with a level kit and some wheels and tires.
    going to be baby steps since I'll be straddled with payments for a couple years.

    I don't know I wont have it until tomorrow afternoon it's about 5 hours away in Los Angeles, I bought it unseen but it has factory warranty and a warranty I purchased, 1 owner, only 25k on it basically a brand new truck, if it is lowered I don't know why they wouldn't have leveled it.

    I think it looks low because it's long, most CCs are short beds. Looks great and nicely optioned. ITBC is a nice feature to have too! Is this going to replace the Denali Wes?

    no, the old Silverado has 242k on it and is only a extended cab, I have growing boys who are going to be over 6' like me they already need the leg room, I am going to sell it I guess, might get 4 or 5 for it if I'm patient, runs great just needs a couple exhaust manifold bolts makes a little racket on first startup in the morning for 10-15 seconds then it is fine till the next morning. I have had it for 11 years it's time for something newer and bigger.

    Then again, those boys will be teenagers soon enough and wanting to break in their shiny new driver's licenses! That old Silvy might be the ticket!

    Super nice upgrade on the Silverado. And you’ll only be paying on it for a couple years? Man that thing would look sick bagged....:)

    That's a nice looking Z71. Have fun trying not to spend money...aka budget build....there's already a couple hundred on the table in your first post of instant upgrades. Have fun man!! Excited to see how it comes along once you get ahold of it.

    payments were $530 when I bought the Denali and I paid it off in 2 1/2 years, this one is a little more $637 (or close to it) but the interest rate is way lower, so it should take me approx the same time, I usually make the payment and then pay the same amount again towards the principal doing that also knocks the interest down because it's based on the running balance owed. the higher the balance the more interest you see being accumulated, knock that high balance down and the interest is not as bad, it's still charged at the same rate but on a lower balance, when you make a payment it pays the interest first then whatever is left over is paid on the principal, so if you make a extra payment it goes straight to the principal knocking the balance down faster as if there was no interest at all. same goes for most loans.
