Nice truck Mike...Congrats!!! Does it have a gas or diesel in it? Are you going to get a plow for it? Do you have a liscence yet, or a permit? Did you reguster it in your name or one of your parents' name? Sorry for all the questions, I have a permit now, and I'll be getting a truck soon (when I get my liscense in 8 months:hammerhead: ), and wanted to see what you're doing. If you don't mind...how much $$$ did you pay...and how many miles? I'm looking at getting a Certified Used ('02, '03, '04, '05, or '06...depending on price and features) Chevy 2500HD Silverado or GMC 2500HD Sierra with reg. cab, long bed, snow plow prep package (will get a plow for it), Allison tranny, and Duramax Diesel...hopefully for under $25,000.

He paid $4500 for it and it has 105k for miles. 5.7L small block Chevy grunt.

He bought it and its in his name.

The plow is getting set up next week, along with light bar/headache rack, and he gets his license the beginning of September.

LOL, thanks ryan!! he is all right except for that, i can't legally have a vehicle in my name until i am 18, i don't know if that a federal thing or a state thing, but until i am 18 any and all of my vehicles will have to be under my parents names.

Not in New Hamshire...Live free or die:dizzy:

He still has to get me to go get the plow for him in Maine:hammerhead: :weightlifter: :rolleyes: :laugh: ...then bring everything to my house so my Dad can assemble it:drinkup: ...but it will be soon

But its a great looking truck Mike and I can't wait to see it sometime this week!
