Goose's Build Thread Thingy

Alright so I guess we will start one of these things. Lump all of my issues, mods, and what not into one spot. I will do my best at write ups and what not, but will half ass the stuff that has been installed because I'm a little lazy. And I like Pictures, so those that can not read can join in too

First off I stole this truck...er...I mean bought it on 01-02-2013. 2008 GMC Sierra SLE 3500 CCLB DWR 4X4 Looked something like this.....with a little over 78K miles on it. Traded the 05 Burb Z71 for it. Got a great trade and a good price on the truck. As you can see it has some funky ass chrome Gear wheels. I despise the front, but the backs are not to bad. I dont know the color, or even what to call it, so You can also see that its been leveled, the cheap way. Tbars are cranked all the way.

First bit done, now to keep on trucking on the build thread

So first mod I did was some Westin Step bars so my dog could get in, shes a big lazy GSD. Paid $180 I think and I had them on in about an hour or so.

Then the next box showed up! I was a dumb DPF diesel noob okay, leave me alone. I got a MBRP DPF 5" Back system. Think I paid $225 for it. I had to cut the old one out, got tired of fighting with it. Then once I got everything in, my tip was hanging low. Whatever I went with it. It fit good other than that. Best thing about this besides it got rid of the musket tip, which was covered in soot, more on that later, is that I can now hear when a regen is happening. This took maybe 2 hours, but I was doing other things as well.

Cardinal Sin here, I used it for work a handful of times because the POS Ford I had was down for injectors and other things. So I got to pull a few trailers, which I wanted to anyway. It tows awesome. Only had about 10K on a pintel hitch trailer behind it so far, but man it was a nice rig to pull with.

Then came the Weather Tech Floor Liners. $207 shipped. They have been great. They catch all the dirt and keeps the mess out of the carpet. The rear is nice because I can stick all my tools and messy stuff back there and not worry about it. Now if these trucks would come with rubber floors or something similar, Linex would be great, I would not have needed these. But I like them anyway. I went with the tan color because I forgot what color my interior was but its better than grey any day.

Best things ever and the fit is perfect. Only real complaint is the Pass side does not have a little holder thing, so it slides when someone gets in or out. Which is a little dangerous and messes up the liner.

So that was the month of January, now onward to February 2013. Thanks to Wforty94 for this one. Antenna Delete Gives the truck a cleaner look, subtle but different. The one takes a while because you are fighting with it. You can do the read up here....

I didnt notice any loss in range until recently. I will have to check the cable to make sure its still tight.

So here comes the first of my issues with the truck. I go to change the oil and I get up under there and what do I see? Oil all over. I made an appointment at the dealer. I thought it was a OP gasket leak or a rear main seal. The tech thought the same and it got a new OP gasket. Also got a lower trans line as that was leaking. Which brings up a point I missed earlier, they replaced a few GPs when I bought it, no big deal but worth mentioning. We will see more on this leak in an upcoming comment.
