This should be fun! Tell us everything you have done.

I purchased a used 2015 Suburban and I love it, swapped out all the oil for this

and installed a nice new stereo system with a soundstream amp and jbl speakers.

your turn, we can learn new things from everyone else!

All I did with mine was drove it like I stole it, and hauled it to its limits.

I never use the third-row seating in my 2019 Yukon Denali so keep them folded down flat for storage or luggage. I bought some home style nylon carpet in very dark grey to nearly match the ebony interior. I cut and had the edges bond to cover the cargo space and folded down seats with a more durable and plush carpeting. Then I cut some more carpet to make larger front and second-row floor mats to cover all the flooring with plush carpeting.

Previously:

I added an auxiliary battery with fuses for safety and an isolation relay that separates the two batteries when not running. This gives me a fully charged back-up battery no matter what drain on the main battery or if it dies of old age. I have been stranded with a dead battery before and don’t want it to happen again and have done this before on my other vehicles.

And I added a controller that flashes (strobes) the high mount / 3rd brake light to enhance attention getting and avoid rear-end collisions. It flashes 4 times fast; 4 times slow then goes on solid every time I apply the brakes.

I replaced the back-up lights with LEDs to give much more illumination while backing, big improvement.

At under 15K miles I haven’t changed any fluids yet but at 50K will change AT, T-case and both differentials.

Nothing major. I just drove to work and ordered new wheels from 4wo| dually rims for my '06 Silverado 3500.

Finally had a REV Ind Tonneau cover installed. Purchased it with the new truck on 12/7/20 but they were on back order and finally arrived.

I just purchased a truck tent for my 2007 Chevy Avalanche. I'm excited to use it for our first camping trip this year. I have read good reviews of this Smittybilt roof top tent. https://auto-truck-access ories.com/chevy-avalanche-tent/ I'll try to put it up this weekend to try how easy it is to install it.
