My favorite aspect of my ZR2 is its offroad capability. It got me to work more than once on its first winter where my old '98 K1500 would not have. The engine power and torque were very similar to my old truck with its 350. I liked the looks. The sportsbar, the hood bulge, and stance. But, it was the front and rear e-lockers that sold me. I don't offroad just to go offroading, but I love being able to get back to those remote fishing and hunting spots. I used to walk for miles back to them, now I can drive instead. This is especially important when it comes time to bring the game home for processing.

Mods/upgrades:
AVS in-channel window vents
AVS hood protection
I have added RoksBlox flaps front and rear after these pictures.
JL Audio CO-CREW 10" sub in factory custom fit box
JL Audio MX500/1 sub amp
Audio Control LCi2-Pro
Factory Chevrolet floor liners (front only)
I pulled out the useless wireless charger and put in a bucket type console in there instead. I put the control knob for the subwoofer on the front there.
Added factory in bed lighting. I am going to add an additional set of lights up front of the bed though too. It is just too dark with the black bed color, black soft top, etc.
Plugged stake holes with "Rail Caps".

We had a particularly rough winter this year with record cold, snow, and a very early ice storm (Oct. 29th) that hit when trees still had leaves. We had a LOT of limbs and trees down. I was able to drag them out of the way so I could get out.This picture is from the past winter in the first lighter snow.

The subwoofer and amp that I put in the truck goes under the rear seat. It takes the entire area but it looks nearly factory. Along with the factory Bose premium sound, it sounds really quite good. The sub adds the bass missing from the truck. But, it isn't so loud that people outside the truck hardly hear it.

Future upgrades:
After I get the rest saved, I will be adding a Mallet supercharger. I'm over 1/2 way there. :)
I have ordered some red/black ZR2 light covers for the top. I have also tried to figure out how to backlight the ZR2 cutout on the sportsbar.

Allright, I'll throw my hat in again now that the jerk with the incredibly well-built super diesel has won. This is my 2020 Z71 Trail Runner.

Modifications: Fox 2.0 suspension with ZR2 blocks in the rear, custom built sleeping platform/tool drawers, Baja Designs Squadron Pro ditch lights and fog lights, Baja Designs S2 Sport rear and chase lights, all lights and ARB compressor controlled by a Trigger 4 Plus with a custom 3d printed switch panel where the sunglasses holder used to be, AEV Bison wheels wrapped in 255/75/R17 BFG KO2's, full AEV skid plates, AEV snorkel, Kenwood ham radio, Expedition Essentials CPAM, tow-hook replaced with shackles, ARE shell with Baja Rack full basket with an ARB awning, Homelink rearview mirror, party lights in the shell, and an Eazy Lift Nomad bed tent. Upcoming: Picking up White Knuckle Off-Road sliders on Thursday.

Favorite thing about this truck so far has been its overall capability. I built it up to support me for deep backcountry hunting and fishing trips. So far it's already hauled out my first buck so we're off to a good start.

I love that this truck can take me anywhere to do anything. Someone always has something to say about the truck everywhere I go, it's a real attention grabber. The list of mods is pretty long:

Stacked 5% Tint
Chrome Delete
LED Everything
Stubby Antenna
BakFlip Trifold Bed Cover
Smoked Spyder Taillights and 3rd Brakelight
Muffler Delete
Window Rain Deflectors
2" Bora Wheel Spacers
6" RC Lift
275/70/18 Nitto Ridge Graps
RGB Rock Light Underglow
Undercover Toolbox
OEM Fender Flares
Baja Designs 30" Amber Light Bar, SAE Foglights, and Ditch Lights
Bison Grille
Air Designs Hood Scoop
2 Rockford Fosgate 10" Subs, 4 6.5" Door Speakers, and 2 Tweeters; all to 2 Amps
2 Amber BD Chase/Reverse Lights
"Multicam Black" Wrap
+ a few more that I figured were too small to count

Rocky Road Sliders are on the way

Really love this truck and I look forward to finishing this build!
