    Icon33 2008 GMC Sierra SLE2/SLT QC Z-82, 31k miles, black on black leather.FULLY LOADED

    I hate to do this, but I am selling my truck. This has been my pride and joy. I bought this truck brand new and have been proud of it ever since. This truck sits up pretty high for a 2wd. It sits higher than my 2003 Silverado Z-71 4wd. I got a new job and its 40 miles one way so total of 80 miles each day. I can't afford the gas. It does however get great gas mileage for such a big powerful truck, just not 400 miles a week + personal miles. On highway at 65 mph, it gets 20-21mpg. In city, it gets roughly 14 mpg. So I am forced to buy a car


    I bought it brand new and invoiced just above $38,000. I have towed my friends boat, my parents' boat, and my friends Dodge Neon and it didnt feel like there was anything back there. It tows great. The tow button works great


    I have added the following and will be included.

    Dual Exhaust. Flowmaster 40 series. I dont like to follow the crowd and get whatever everyone else has, but these do sound the best on this truck. No drone at cruising speed, but they are very throaty and have a great muscle sound. They do NOT get raspy at all. I could tell the difference in throttle response and high end hp. Roughly +10hp added and 1-2mpg. Stock is 315 horsepower so you are looking at 325hp with regular gas and 336hp with E85.

    Custom Front Grill. Its an Aluminum Brushed Grill. This addition made the truck look 10 times better. I get compliments on it all the time and it really sets it apart from other Sierra's. Looks much better than the Denali grill, thats for sure. This set me back $300 new.

    Limo tint with lifetime waranty. It came with very mild tint, but I took it to my tint guy and I had him put 5% in the back window, 5% in the back side windows and 20% in the front. Passed inspection. In the back, you cant see inside the truck from the outside at all. You can see a little bit inside in the front windows. Looking from inside the vehicle, its perfect. Leather seats never get hot from the sun. Truck has been parked in a parking garage 90% of its life.

    Ok, here is the summarized lowdown on the truck. This is an SLE2 truck. Technically its an SLT, but its badged as an SLE2 because it doesnt have a sunroof or heated seats.

    31,300 miles. Mostly highway.

    Tires have about 40% tread left

    Active Fuel Fuel Management

    Flex Fuel E85

    Power Folding Mirrors with integrated LED turn signals in the side mirrors

    Z-82/Z85 Sport Suspension package (Oversized swaybar, stiffer springs for trailering, Goodyear LS2 tires) Considered their High Performance Handling Package

    20" Machined Aluminum Wheels (I wanted these rather than the chrome ones because the chrome rims have a chrome cover that goes over the rim so its not a real chrome rim) They clean up easily

    Convenience Package

    Adjustable Pedals

    Rear Sonar Bumper Sensors with audio beep and lights (LED lights are located on the rear passenger side piller. 1st Yellow light (5ft) 2nd Yellow Light (4ft), 3rd Yellow Light (2ft), 4th RED light (1ft)...

    Nice truck. Wasting your time here though, you need to be putting it on truck forums and Truck Trader.

    Thanks. I love the truck and hate to get rid of it.

    But Yeah, I figured I would be wasting my time on here, but it was worth a shot. Its already on craigslist.

    I havent had much experience on the GMC or Silverado message boards. Only good vehicle message boards I have had good luck with is Grandamgt.com and titantalk.com. Other than that, everyone seems to be an a-ss
