    How's it going! My name is Chris and I just picked up a 2002 Z71 Tahoe. Had a 2007 (classic) GMC Sierra before and before that a 2001 Audi A4 1.8t.

    I was pretty heavily into the euro scene before moving to Texas and realizing the roads in Houston suck and I didn't feel like constantly clenching my ass every time I drove the Audi...haha

    The line-up, old to new

    Bagged 2001 Audi A4. Bought it in 2005, sold 2018. It was like my 5th kid (I said 5th. I've got 4!)...loved this car.

    2007 (classic) GMC Sierra. Bought this before I moved to Texas. Trailered the A4 from Tampa, FL to Houston TX. Loooooved this truck, but the half door was starting to get on my nerves...bought in 2014 sold in 2018

    2002 Z71 Tahoe. Discovering a lot of little things wrong with this truck. For starters previous owner butchered the radio wiring harness so none of the speakers work which sucks during my commute to work. Also the front drivers side sits an inch lower than the pass side. I have a whole new front end, need shocks, going with bilsteins. I also want to level the front with the rear, picked up some keys for that but may do a kit and keep it legit.

    Previous owner had these hideous 20s. I traded them for some stock 18s and threw on some 285/65 tires and 2" spacers all around. Sits much nicer! I also had a magnaflow installed, my truck had a Borla with the side exit and it sounded unreal. Tahoe sounds, alright. Wish it was a bit louder, but whatever. haha

    I like the OEM+ look. So I'll be doing some minor things to keep it clean and classy!
