About “Silvy”

This is my truck, a 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. Its a Crewcab 4wd with the gas 6.0L. I previously had a 2001 Ford F150 Supercrew that was very special to me, but it was stolen and totaled in April 2007. I got this truck for a good deal and took it. I'm pretty happy with it. Only problem its given me so far was the power steering pump went, but thats what warrantys are good for haha.


As for upgrades, I have done..


Magnaflow Hi-Flow cats
3" Flowmaster True Duals with Flowmaster Super 44s
Magnaflow 4"x12" SS rolled edge tips
smoked taillights & brakelight
black bow tie emblems
8000k HIDs
20% tint













About “Mouse”

Its my new car and it has taught me to appreciate the Korean automobile industry.

It is quite a reliable car, and excellent on gas mileage compared to my last car, it cost me only $50 to drive from LA to Sacramento (385 Miles), big difference changing from a V8 to a Straight-4.

I would like to personalize this car more so I can get the basics down to prepare myself on a bigger project such as a dream car or my next vehicle, and if you can help me get a good start, please tell me what are the best ideas.

I still need
*New Wheels
*New Rear Bumper
-Maybe A/C

Mods for “Silvy”

Magnaflow Hi-Flow cats, 3" duals H pipe'd, Flowmaster Super 44 mufflers, 4"x12" Magnaflow SS tips. I love the exhaust it sounds awesome [url]http://youtube.com/watch?v=lkXtwkbnnbk[/url]. I also smoked the taillights, brakelight, painted the stock grill & all the gold emblems black. 6k HIDs, HiperWhite LED bulbs in the DRLs, and I tinted it 20/5/20. Not going all out with modifying it just want it to look a little better.

Nothing yet but I would like to install a really nice sound System and replace the Interior with a little more class
