2017 GMC Sierra Regular Cab

This truck was kind of an impulse buy. My Father-in-law was looking for a regular cab daily driver and found some closeout 2017's at Laura GMC in Collinsville, IL over Christmas break. He reserved a black 4wd and had them install a level kit, wheels and tires. I was looking through the inventory and started getting the bug. I had my eye on a red 2017 regular cab 4wd but by the time I got in touch with anybody there (they're busy!) the 4wd's were all gone. This 2wd with 5.3, convenience group, and towing package was marked down to $19,995 with rebates, hail sale, etc. and was too hard to pass up plus I had some GM Buypower card points burning a hole in my pocket. I reserved it and we rode up then drove home in our twin black trucks (kind of weird, I admit). I am planning to use it as a daily driver.

Not doing anything crazy or too exciting but I can't leave it stock so I am planning to do the following:
  • OEM Remote Start
  • OEM 20's
  • Tint 20%
  • Level kit
  • Bilstein 5100's?
  • Upper control arms?
  • 275/65r20 Nitto G2's
  • CQuartz UK after light polish
  • Driver's assist handle
  • Bedrug or Bedtred
  • Tonneau cover
  • Swap rubber floor mats for factory carpet
  • GMC floor mats
  • Leather steering wheel
  • Audio upgrade
  • DIC/Instrument panel upgrade
  • Catch can

Re: 2017 GMC Sierra Regular Cab

Added factory remote start today, using GM software. FYI, on the 2017/18's there is no wiring harness required although it comes with the kit and is required for installation in 2014-2016. It's just two key fobs and a code for AC Delco to update the BCM calibration. Then you just have to program the fobs.

Re: 2017 GMC Sierra Regular Cab

Came across a deal on 2018 dealer take-off 20's with tires, lug nuts, TPMS and less than 1,000 miles for a total of $800 including credit for my set. I will upgrade tires later but this was absolutely perfect for right now.

Re: 2017 GMC Sierra Regular Cab

Man,... very cool truck.
I’m jealous.
I’d love to have 2wd with a 5.3.
That price is crazy.
V6 trucks here are stickered over $30k

Re: 2017 GMC Sierra Regular Cab

Thanks! I thought the price was good, but when I got there and realized how many trucks they were selling and checking around after, I realized it was unbeatable. Still wish I had snagged the red 4wd but this is really growing on me. Other than the part where my wife made me swear not to lower it LOL. The only things that you can really tell apart from a higher trim level is the rubber floor (easy fix), stereo (easy/expensive) and the steering wheel/cluster (not easy but not too expensive). My plan when I'm done is to have all of those things addressed.

Thanks! It's "American Tonneau" Soft Rolling from Autoanything. It was not very expensive but I am very pleased. I bought another cover last summer and it went over the rails but didn't do a good job of keeping the water out. This one seals better. It's made in the USA by a larger brand. I have since added a pair of rear stake pocket covers I got from Amazon, they fit nice and keep water out.

I am planning to delete the factory muffler, move the resonator to the muffler location, and leave the flap until I tune out AFM. I have heard really good reviews on the muffler delete. I'm not one for doing hack stuff to save a buck, but I figure if the sound is right and if it's well done, why not give it a try?
