    I decided I want to do a build thread. I have a 2006 Bermuda Blue Z-71 NBS Tahoe. I'm not as fast with upgrades as most people, but I've had a lot of fun reading everyone else's build threads for inspiration. I have only done minor mods so far, but figured I'd share what I've done and maybe inspire someone else! Let me introduce you to my Bermuda Blue Hoe:

    2006 Chevy Z-71 Tahoe
    5.3L Flex 212K Miles
    Bench Backseat and no 3rd row.

    Mods Completed:
    -Wet Okole Front Seat Covers (Page 1)
    -Console Vault (Page 1)
    -Weather Tech Heavy Duty Floor Mats (Page 1)
    -6-Hi Fleece Chip Mod (Page 1)
    -Linex Plastic Rocker panels, rear bumper accents, rear faux air vents, roof rack, front bumper valence, front windshield lower air dam (Page 1)
    -EBAY Cold Air Intake system (Page 2)
    -Upgraded Tires and Wheels (Page 1)
    -Window Tint 5% all the way around except windshield
    -Optima Car Battery Red Top 800 CC Amps
    -A T-6061 Billet Aluminum 50 Cal Ammo Antenna in Black anodized finish (Page 3 & 4)
    -T-6061 Black Billet Aluminum Chevy Emblem (Page 3 & 4)
    -Auxiliary Reverse LED Lights (Page 5, Page 6)
    -HD Hood and HD Grille (Page 9, Page 13)
    -Carven RPT true dual exhaust (Page 16 & 17)
    -Bilstein 5100s and level out (Page 19)
    -32" Curved LED Lightbar (Page 21)
    -Aux Reverse Lights (Page 23)

    Mods in the near future:
    -Upgrade stock stereo
    -Integrated CB Radio
    -Headlight upgrade

    Of course there are infinite things we could do to our Hoes and Yukons, but these are my next priorities. Spending money on the mods along with the regular maintenance and whatever wears out tends to bleed a man dry. But I'll be damned if it ain't fun! I Love my Hoe and don't ever want another truck!! Enjoy!

    Another easy Mod! Fleece made it super easy for the 6-Hi. Take out the 4 fuses identified in the instructions. Place the chip down. Re-insert Fuses. and you're done!

    I like the idea of the console vault! Been thinking about doing that to my 2006 Denali! Cool truck!

    Upgrade to the tires and wheels gave the Hoe a great face lift. Looks way better with the bigger tires and the black wheels. I now have the Cooper Discoverer STT Pro 285/70/17 tires and ProComp 7032 Flat Black 17"
