I will break down my truck as it sits today, 04/08/15. I don't have great pics but I've got some. My company colors are brown/black so this truck stood out to me and I loved the cocoa/dune interior.

Finished Mods
- 6" Pro Comp lift installed by dealer
- 22" Fuel Mavericks
- 37x13.5x22 Toyo Open Country M/T's
- AFE CAI and oiled filter
- Amp Research steps
- Road Armor Titan Guard
- (4) Plashlight LED fog lamps
- 20" Plashlight LED light bar
- (3) KC spots
- OEM Black Bowties
- Removed "2500 HD", "Silverado", and "LTZ" badges
- Removed body side mouldings
- (2) 12" Kenwood Excelon KFC-XW1200F subs, downfiring under rear seat
- Hybrid Audio Clarus component speakers
- Fatmat acoustic treatment in door panels
- painted door handles
- painted rear bumper
- painted grille and headlights
- fully deleted
- 4" Flopro turbo back exhaust
- Built tranny
- EFILIVE by Kory Willis
- Air Dog 2 165

This is my daily driver for the next 2 years, then it's getting twinned, built motor, injectors, etc to make 800+ HP

As it sits today:

Pm me would like assist steps
I'm hitting the sack man but I'll PM you my number and text me tomorrow. I haven't ever shipped anything like that so I don't know how it would work. Here are pics. The crack in the plastic piece is shown here. My parts guy said he can buy that piece and I can replace it. I haven't called him back to see how much.

Thanks guys. Anyhody know the answer to this question: after I delete, will I need the AMP steps for the '15 with the DEF reservoir or will I be able to buy the steps for previous years?

I'm thinking my DEF resevoir being gone will let me save some $$ on the steps. Not a lot but probably $200.

Far as I know if you delete the tank you can get the 15 1500 steps which almost completely hide under the sides.

I'm loving your build so far. I'm not typically a fan of those road armor bumpers but it looks absolutely great on your truck

Where do you get the black OEM bowties? Easy install?
I think you can get them from a dealership if not I.m sure you can online. Cheaper way is to paint or plasti-dip them yourself. They are very easy to get at.

I wasn't sure if the big ass one would look good but I'm pleased with it too. A bro-in-law price didn't hurt either.

^^^what he said. I think I paid $85 installed while it was in for service.
