My first D-Max

Hello all,

My names Mike, I'm 18, from upstate, NY and this past summer I bought my 2006 2500HD Ext Cab LBZ!

Bought used from my grandfather's Chevrolet dealership where I work with 134k on it and a brand new stainless steel plow! and they were going to wholesale it!!

I couldn't let it happen after seeing it sitting outback I knew I had to scoop it up!

A family friend has been the original owner, then a friend of his then me, so I'm the third owner, It came with an MBRP Single tip.
Here it was the first day I saw it:

It needed; 4 glow plugs, tires and brakes.. So I got to work!

After about a month I wanted some more power so I got and Edge CTS and I think its great!

here it is with my dad's 2013 Duramax,

Pulled 310! not too bad for just a tuner and exhaust!

Heres a video from in the cab on youtube:

Got 4th place.. I think?

And I know now I will NEVER get rid of this truck. I will be buried in it.. I Swear.

I hope to upgrade many parts of it and I dream of twins one day

Most recently, on a trip to North Adams, MA through the Teconic Parkway:Name:  IMG_1218.jpg

Welcome to the forum. LBZ was a good choice. extended cabs with sunroofs are badass in my book.
