I was told it was rare truck. Even more so if I found one in black. That's what drove my search.

Removed interior to clean and install new sound deadening material.

That's a nice little rig you got there! I bet the 5.3 moves the 2wd reg cab pretty good. Should drop a 6.2 in it.

Those Tahoe wheels were also used on Avalanches too, so that may help broaden your search for some. I really like those wheels. They will look great on that truck, especially once you do the 5/7.

I'm excited to see some work on this thing. I love this generation of Chev/GMC trucks. My roommate has a black 2005 Sierra SLT crew cab with black leather and 22s. Sick truck.

Thank you. Okay okay. That should help out in my search for the other two. If I can't get my hands on them, I also have my eye on some weld renegade in a 22". The 5.3 does move! The low end torque is pretty nice.

Thank you. So am I haha. Having this truck opens the door for so much more stuff to pick up.

Possibility. But this is going to be a reliable daily driver for now.

This is my fathers 2000 ls rcswb with a 3/4 drop. Brought it over to get the fuel pump changed.

I'd been searching local craigslist for months and was able to piece a kit to using Mcgaughy drop spindles, djm springs and control arms with mostly belltech in the rear. C notch brackets and shock mounts are going to be made.

I'm 6'5. There is really a lot of room in a single cab. It's a full size truck, not a mini truck.

Small update...

There was drama with the shop that was doing the lowering. Some things were stolen (not from me), and people were fired. I didn't feel comfortable leaving my truck. So the silverado is back home unfinished.

Sold the suspension I pieced together. Acquired a hd hood from the 2500 silverado, should look pretty good. Still haven't found the other ltz wheels. The search continues.
