Hi Leilani, we are waiting for the phone call to pick our 2011 2500 LTZ Silverado from American Vehicle Sales. It has arrived and has been converted and just wainting for some accessories to arrive and then we are ready to go. Very excited, can't wait to drive it back home from Melbourne. Who did your conversion? Glad to see another Aussie with a Silverado on the forum.

Thanks for the warm welcome peoples,
Shesace, as soon as I read your username I knew you were an Aussie, haha

Keoni and Spmrks thank you , yes we are enjoying the TRUCK haha , Keoni, thanks for the kind words about Aus, it is special yes, we hope to get to the states in the next few years too

Shesace, was converted in Brisbane and driven over to WA, and had one trip down south , we have only just bought it , has 20,000kms on it and really it is as new, lots of extra's , nudge bar, spotties, upgraded stereo , two sets of brakes, extra reversing camera for the caravan/ boat in our case , 20inch factory alloys,and a licence upgrade to tow the wide and long loads also, Both hubby and I had to get our Light Rigid licences here in West Aus as any vehicle over 4.5 tonnes has to have a driver with that licence, that was scary I can tell you haha , is it the same in Vic, ?

The gps is not working here , and I am hoping there may be a fix for that and that is one of the reasons I joined this forum ,

Have you driven one yet ? I meant that as in a RHD drive converted one , sorry
