Hello guys and gals. I have owned Gm products most of my life or at least since I've been able to drive. I have mostly dealt with the GM gas side of things and not much with Diesels.

Well my 07 trailblazer SS had some issues and left me and my wife with only one vehicle. So that got me to looking for a vehicle Asap. I have always wanted a diesel. So the time has come so I bought a used pickup last week.

2011 Silverado 2500HD LTZ with 77k on the clock. performance wise it is stock.
I'm the third owner. first owner had it for 12k miles second owner had it until 76k.

I bought it with the following small add-ons. B&W goose neck hitch,spray-in bed liner, lifted a bit, aftermarket 18", running boards and Dvd players installed in each rear head rest.

I have done the following. too factory door modelings off, removed Z71 badges, paint matched bith front and rear bowties.

Tomorrow it will get a new front windshield fully tinted 70%, then 5% tint all the way around. I also picked up 3 sets on Rigid Dually one D2 set and the other the regular flood duallys. Wanted to add a 20" rigid in the bumper but they are out of stock at my local shop.

Next up I would like to add a set of BMF Novakanes 20x10 with a new setof rubber.

Can any of you help me with what size lift this truck might have. the rear wheels well measures 46" from the ground to the top of the fender well. what size lift would that be?

Here is a few pictures. the current tire size is 285/75/18

Also a few other small thing I did was wrap all the fake wood interior pieces with 3M 3D carbon wrap. i cannot stand the wood look in these. so that had to happen asap.





after removing the door molding and paint matched vent visors and removed the z71 decals.

And by the way, I really like the carbon fiber work. Wouldn't mind picking your brain at some point. I don't have the wood grain but I think it still looks nice...
