I lucked out, got the bumper cover for less than what it cost to ship it new and it was brand new in the package. Roll pan fit better than expected. I just need to narrow the axle and order my 21x12 wheels for the rear and 21x9 up front
Working on it! The Garrett air to water IC core showed up, I'll be working on the IC as we build the engine. Need to drop off the engine to builder next week and start getting the valve covers coated. Also need to order my new wheels after getting offset verified. 21x9.5 and 21x12 with 285/45 and 325/40 tires.
Next couple of projects is cutting a 6" hole in the frame as a pass through for exhaust and body exit exhaust tips prior to the rear wheels and move to a 3 link rear suspension with coilovers.
I am also going to pick up the Striker side skirts for the truck as well and get those installed.
Air to water intercooler project is in full effect. I have the air to water core already and HX is on it's way, I'm using my old CTS-V pump and building in a reservoir. I also have a killer chiller I'll install after the initial testing/dyno comparison. Fabrication starts in 2 weeks!
Will definitely help massively here in Phoenix and other places with high temps, with the killer chiller added on and having 35 degree water will be really nice.
Should cost less than the top end air to air IC with tons of better benefits in comparison.
Also working on a gauge pod to replace the center dash piece on the 09-14 trucks, should be another cool project.
I figured it was time to get all my additions to the truck listed out and tracked. I have it all documented on a Detailing site, but obviously doesn't get a whole lot of views.

I wanted to start a thread to share my plans, progress, and work done. TBH its a bit intimidating after seeing the trucks some of you are working with and me being so late to the game. I'm hoping I can post some helpful links and pictures along the way. I'll list my overall plans, work log thus...
It’s time to get this rolling. Thanks to @snakebitten for the name suggestion.
The last truck I went wild, this will be mild. The vision for this truck is simple bolt-on modifications that can be ‘easily’ removed and returned to stock. The plan here is longevity and simple mods for comfort or...
