Well, as they say, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again. At least that guy with the big bad dually can't enter this month. ;-)

Hello All, Here's my truck & mods:

2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 High Country L5P CC/SB
S&B CAI, Banks Derringer & Pedal Monster w/iDash, Banks differential cover, Bilstein 5100 shocks
Morimoto xB headlights, tail lights and fog lights, Boost Auto switchback mirror lights
S&B MAP spacer, Centramatics, Chevy illuminated front emblem

One of my favorite experiences so far with the truck was when I trailered my boat for the first time. My route takes me through the Pine Barrens of NJ on 539 which is a single lane in each direction and a posted 55 MPH road. There are some passing zones, but they are limited in areas. Well, I was stuck behind a slow person doing barely 45, and traffic began to stack up behind me. I'm sure they all thought it was me, and I could see several people trying to pass, but they couldn't see the oncoming traffic coming. Well, I had enough of this bad situation, so I saw an opening and floored it with the boat in tow past the slowpoke. I was doing 80 before I knew it, and was pleasantly surprised with the power these trucks offer.

Yep, no way I was going to enter my little truck in April's ROTM after laying eyes on hdrolling's beast. :)

So here is my much smaller and darker 2021 Silverado 1500 RST Z71 LM2 in Northsky Blue with the Dark Essentials package.
Added:
Trail Boss style wheels with Falken Wildpeak A/T3W tires.
Blacked out Z71 emblems.
Powercoated black exhaust tips to complete the dark theme.
Banks idash gauges (waiting on Derringer development)

2018 GMC 2500HD All-Terrain. I bought new April of 2018 and she is not even broken in yet with 19k on the odo.
Mods: 4.5" BDS lift with Fox shocks and steering stabilizer, 20x9 Fuel Hardline wheels, 35" Mickey Thompson ATZP3 tires, Fab Fours Matrix bumper, Rigid Radiance series 30" light bar and 3" pods all controlled with factory switch, Banks Derringer w/Idash tuner in a Block8head console pod, Banks intake and monster exhaust, 20% tint, Tuxedo Prox15 tonneau.

Favorite story: I was in my truck at a gas station after filling up. Just getting ready to put my truck in gear when my passenger door flew open and a Betty White looking lady hopped in the seat and put 2 diet Pepsi in the center console and proceeded to get ready for her voyage. I looked at her then I looked to my left and saw her husband in the same All-Terrain as mine. He saw what had happened and smiled at me and said, "I guess I should have bought the 2500, can you hand me my Pepsi. Then his wife looked up and screamed. I guess she wasn't expecting to see a bearded guy covered in tattoos smiling at her.

2007 classic crew cab Sierra with the LBZ. I bought this truck back in 2012 from the salvage auction as a rollover. I fixed it with a complete used body and then the cab i put on ended having the rockers started rusting so i replaced the cab shell with a rust free southern one just a couple years ago. Did engine work in December 2020 which was one of the most fun thing I’ve done to it. Just got it back from the paint shop repainted bedsides and three doors to fix some rust and dents. 240k miles on it with complete factory fuel system still alive. Future plans of 10mm stroker pump and 60% over injectors. My signature lists more mods.

Given I have made a few changes since the April ROTM contest, I figured I would try again. Pretty hard to compete with the likes of HDrolling and Ballistic, those are some stellar looking rides.

My truck so far:

2021 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 4X4 LTZ Crew Cab Z71
Running boards
Full window tint
Firestone Ride Rite air bags
De-badged
S&B MAP Spacer
SnugTop Camper shell
Banks Super Gauge
Front mounted hitch
Blacked out Duramax hood emblems

For the April ROTM I told a story about how I'm impressed with the acceleration of this truck. Having just returned from our first pull of the RV on a short trip of 750 miles round trip I wanted to share this time how impressed I am with the shifting of the 10sp Allison. This transmission shifts butter smooth almost to the point of not knowing it has shifted even under heavy load on climbs or descents. Other trucks in the past have had hard shifts or delayed shifting, etc. With those transmissions I would try to mitigate their issues with throttle control. This transmission is just glassy all the time, and it shifts on immediate command in manual mode.

2019 Silverado 2500 HD. I added banks pedal monster and Derringer with Idash but mounted the idash out of the way on the dash behind the shift lever. I added led lights to grill, running boards and under tailgate. After this pic was taken, I noticed that the wiring on the grill was visible, that has been corrected. I have pics of final polishing where it looks like a mirror but they all have my reflection. Added Dmax filler to bumper opening and have a low pro cover on the bed. This is the quietest and most comfortable vehicle I have ever owned, including a few caddy's and benz's. I only have 8600 miles on it and on road trips I can coax 24mpg.
