You never even tinted the Ranger, and the Silverado is already getting the treatment!

I guess this means we will not be swapping carpet/vinyl floors.

I really don't like the new front ends on the Silverados, way to boxy for me.

Should have gotten the 4.8 at least. Power options? I'm GUESSING it's a work edition. Nothing wrong with that, just curious. I love having no power options, vinyl floors, and A/C, lol.

The more I look at the new ones, the more I am happy that I got the gen I got. I just don't like the flat top hood, or the MASSIVE front end.

It looks like a nice truck, though.

Find some factory 20's, my buddy has a 08 screw 4x4 that came with the factory 20's...I like them. I have seen them on some of the 2wd's...lower it some and your done. Oh, and do the painted front bumper as suggested...this is if your going for the street look, if your going to lift it never mind...lol I'm glad chevy did away with the cat eye look, the newer fronts look much better.

I like the rounded generations before the mean eyes.. I have XM, OnStar, A/C, Cruise Control, and pimp cloth!

You should be picky, its something your stuck driving everyday for the next few years. Might as well get exactly what you want at first so your not knockin it later.
