Didn't realize the addiction was so strong or else I would have started one of these 2 years ago when I got the pickup. I've done quite a bit to her so far and I still have more to do. I'll try to put in as many pics as I can as well. Thanks for looking everybody :thumb

I bought the truck in Puyallup, WA on 7/13/13 with only 60,341 miles on it. Here is a bone stock pic of it shortly after I got it.

I use to be an OTR flatbedder so I just had boxes of goodies at a time sitting at home waiting for me when I got some days off. First thing I put an S&B CAI on w/ an LBZ MP, a MBRP 3" DP to 4" exhaust w/ 5" tip, an SDP EGR delete kit, a built from scratch PCV Reroute, a PPE Race Plug and to tie it all together I had Duramaxtuner's trans safe tuning on it w/ an Insight CTS switching the tunes.

Next round of goodies I put the newer style tow mirrors on, in tunnel rain deflectors, an Airdog II 165 (later added the CAT filter to it), and had my mechanic throw in a MA pump rub fix for me

On 10/17/14 at 73,000 miles I had GOS Performance in Livingston, MT build my transmission. Suncoast kit with a 1058 Torque Converter. At about 74,500 after a good break in I got Kory's built transmission tunes. The very same day I flashed the tunes I blew my head gaskets :gearjamin
All loaded up and ready to get towed to my buddy's shop for studs and gaskets. I also had him throw in a MA welded water pump while he was in there.

I thought about it but the winter front I have hooks under that black trim and snaps under the hood. I like it that way rather than having snaps on the chrome trim

Recently I have added an escalade gauge overlay and added red LEDs to it and replaced all my stepper motors. The white needles that came with the kit were complete garbage so I just used the stock needles. I blacked out the KMH so it doesn't show up when lit up. I need to think of a way to black it out cleanly without using tint like I've seen so I don't see it during the day. Looks way better without it there. Also added some rear wheel well liners, make the truck look a lot cleaner IMO. I need to get my truck undercoated sometime. Hate that rust lookin undercarriage. Also added a MA trans brace and a Fleece tapshifter.
