Azonicbruce's 2012 DCSB Silver Streak Build

Didn't know about this board, so I guess this will be a good place for me to document my build and adventures with my new truck. I guess I'll start off with the "Before" pictures, right when I brought her home from the dealership:





With everyone's help here, I've decided on some of the first items for my build.
Tires - Toyo Open Country AT2s - 265/75/R16
Wheels - Method Double Standard Matte Black - 16x8
Suspension - Icon Stage 1 Suspension Kit
Mods - Black Badge mod, remove mud flaps

10/3/12 - Just ordered the Icon Stage 1 Kit from DSM. Worked with Sonny, was a great help.

Can't believe already 1000 and still no mods other than removing the mud flaps

Icon Stage 1 shipped today. Still waiting on Tires/wheels to ship.

Plasti-dipped the badges. Results were so-so. From far away they look great, but even with 4 coats it didn't seem to get very good coverage on the top/bottom of the letters, and seemed to nick easily when trying to toothpick out the tight areas.

Here comes the suspension:

Put the flashlights in there for size comparison. That's one triple D-cell MagLite and a AA Maglite

Post leveling adjustment:



More pro pics to follow. So far, I'm grinning from ear-to-ear with this Icon setup. Love it.

Just a new set of coil-overs up front and set of shocks for the rear. Much, much better suspension performance over stock. Really happy with the purchase.

Last photo-shoot. Not exactly a really exciting build, but I was really happy to put it together, and I'm sure it won't be long until I get the bug to do a few more upgrades

Nice truck man. Looks exactly like mine, except I have the Standards. Same tires and size as well.
