Great, but in need of some perf options

Vehicle2005 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLE 4WD LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
ReviewHighest quality of any GM pickup I've ever owned ('74, '87, '89, '92). Not a rattle/buzz anywhere. HO 5.3L runs better than the 454 in that '74 shortbed 2wd, though I've had the PCM custom tuned and running 4.10 gears. I also changed the OEM alloys with 265/70's for 20x9.5" & 305/50 Avons. Handling astonishingly improved and quieter!
Best FeaturesGood motor (L33), extended cab with plenty of room for average-sized adults, comfortable/convenient cloth 60/40 bench up front, no more 4wd floor lever.
Worst FeaturesPremium Bilstein shocks with better damping should be included as in former Z71's, and rack/pinion steering. Need HO 6.0L option for more power. 3.73/4.10 gears should be options on extd cab as on std cabs.
