    Had it for about 7 months now, still under 2000 miles. Since Katrina, time has been short, as well as money, so it took a while to get some mods going. So far; tinted front windows, wheel to wheel nerf bars, bed rails, 265/75/16 Mickey Thompson/Dick Cepek AT tires that ride better than stock, and lifted it a little over an inch.

    Looks good. The new GMC's definitly have a mean look to them. Is yours a D-Max or a gasser? Have any mods done to the engine?

    I don't know what front grill style I like better, GMC or Chevrolet.

    I have an 03 Silverado now, But the front end on the Sierra looks killer.

    Especially how the grill and bumper come together.

    Thanks guys.

    Yes, it's a gasser, with no engine mods, yet. And yes, cop car in background. lol

    Before Katrina, we had a cop next door, and two across the street. Now only one is left.

    I'm doing OK I suppose. Money is tight, but hopefully things will pick up in Spring, MANY people should be needing sod, garden work, new patios, etc. Not to mention, probably 50% of the lawn companies went under (literally and figuratively) so there should be people in need. *Crosses fingers

    Thanks for the concens.
