    Took delivery of my 06 Silverado 1500 CC Vmax

    I finally took delivery of my 2006 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab 2WD VortecMax truck this evening.

    After almost 2 months (ordered 2/25/05, delivered 4/20/06)

    Specs
    2006 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab 2WD, Sport Red Metallic, Ebony Leather, 3LT, Sunroof, On Star, XM, Bose 6-Disc, VortecMax Pack.

    I needed something that would have no problem pulling my 01 Z/28 to out of town car shows. So far I am loving the truck unfortunately I have put a grand total of 7 miles on the truck This weekend she will stretch her legs a bit and we will see how she is on the highway, and city.

    So far no performance mods are scheduled yet. This is my new daily driver so my wife's 00 Camaro can rest in the garage next to mine. I do plan to add Westin polished stainless step bars, GM hood deflector, 5% tint, and a tanneau cover in the next week or so.

    I got a great deal GM Supplier Discount, plus $3000 cash rebate from GM.

    I'm not much of a truck guy, but that's a really nice looking truck man! What colour is your Camaro? Hopefully the same as the truck... it'd be cool to see a matching set of Chevies!

    Nope not the same color for my 01 Z/28 but my 2009 Camaro will be that color.

    Nice Camaro. I don't like the color of the Silverado as much.

    That's a sweet truck.

    Are you gonna get better tires for it?

    Our Silverado's stock tires were just horrible with traction so we got these bigger off-road tires instead. I don't know if our old stock ones are the same as the ones you have, but I heard a lot of owners complained about the stock tires.
