    Bed side rack options

    That turned out great!

    Bed side rack options

    Very cool! Well let me know what you come up with. I was looking in my truck bed today and I think the super strut could work great. I'm thinking threaded rivets would work best to fasten to the bed so I'll have to get some of those. I actually have some super strut sitting in my garage from a...

    SW Idaho Overlanding

    I just found out about this and would have loved to have joined. I definitely want to see some post trip videos, etc.

    Bed side rack options

    Oh that's a good idea. That would make it very customizable. And very budget friendly Also I just saw that you're in Middleton, ID. I'm just around the corner in Caldwell!

    Bed side rack options

    I have a 2006 Silverado 1500 and I've been trying to find a way to mount accessories (i.e. hi lift jack, shovel, axe, etc) in the bed. I know companies like Built Right Industries make bed side racks but I can find very few, if any, aftermarket accessories like that for my model truck. Does...

    2006 Silverado 1500 build and adventures

    I'm trying to catch up this thread with all the updates with my truck. A couple of weeks after I bought the truck it developed a lifter tick which was not something I was excited to spend money on. But luckily that's something I was able to fix myself. So since I was in there replacing the...

    2006 Silverado 1500 build and adventures

    That's a good call. I have one I will have to try for that. I'm going camping next week and it's probably going to get a little rainy

    2006 Silverado 1500 build and adventures

    Thanks a lot. I also love this look of Silverados. Always been my favorite since they came out. Towing is definitely a reason a decided to go full-size instead of anything smaller. I won't be towing much but it's there when I need it. Ya I should probably look at upgrading the shocks. That may...

    2006 Silverado 1500 build and adventures

    Picked up this used shell for $200! It's not exactly the look I was going for but it'll work for now.

    2006 Silverado 1500 build and adventures

    Bought the truck in Utah and stopped to go camping on the way back home to Idaho. The leveling kit makes the ride super stiff up front especially on the dirt roads. Right now my plan is to delete the torsion bar suspension and replace it with a coilover conversion from Atomic Fabrication for the...

    2006 Silverado 1500 build and adventures

    Just picked up this beauty back in June. It's pretty stock but it's a good blank canvas to start building. 2006 Silverado 1500 LT Z71 5.3l 4wd Leveling kit

    Let's see those full size rigs - Trucks & SUV

    Finally joined the full-size truck game. Picked up a 2006 Silverado 1500. I've been wanting one of these forever. It's the Z71 and has a basic leveling kit. I'm super stoked to slowly build it and adventure it!

    Light tower conversion build

    Loving this build! Just picked me up a retired road construction arrow board trailer. Looking forward to building mine! You've given me some good ideas

    Anyone in Boise/West Central Idaho?

    Fridays and weekends definitely work best for me!

    Silverado 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton??

    That is definitely something to keep in mind. I would for sure rather have plenty of extra cushion with the GVWR and towing capacity than be right on the limit and wearing the truck out faster plus it being more dangerous to drive. I honestly just wish that GM would make their full-size trucks...

    Silverado 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton??

    Wow thanks for the info. So in talking about the front LSD/lockers for a 2500 what would I be looking for? How drastically would it limit my turning also? And would the turning be limited only when 4wd is engaged or all the time?

    Silverado 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton??

    Very cool! Nice to see someone running a similar setup to what I want. Ya mine would be my daily but also extra accessories on it as well when I'm not overlanding. But the 2500 definitely makes more sense if pulling a camper. Especially long distances.

    Silverado 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton??

    That makes sense. Works for me. An SAS up front would be awesome but that would probably be way down the road if ever.

    Let's see those full size rigs - Trucks & SUV

    What about adding an additional leaf on a 1/2 ton? I'm looking at getting a truck soon for overlanding, pulling a small overland trailer, no more than 1500lbs. However in the future I plan on getting a camper also for the wife and kids. I'm not against getting a 3/4 ton, but if the 1/2 ton works...
