No. I sold it earlier this year. Needed a lot more work than I wanted to put into it.

Thanks!

The 99 (white) is just about to 200k miles. 6.0L. Great truck, great engine! I bought it when I was 14, in 2008 and its been awesome for a first truck.

The 04 (Silver) I just bought in November. What a beast. Lots of torque! Its got 104k miles and running like a champ. I put my black rims on the silver the other day and man I think they look awesome! I've got some blue strobe lights I'm putting in the grill (im a volunteer firefighter) and Im going to get a strobe for the dash too.

Both great trucks, will definetly buy another K2500

Every things looking good. We had a 60 degree day today so I ended up washing my truck as well. If you don't mind me asking. How much do you pay a month for rent on your building?

Thanks man!

STIHL: FS110, FC110, HS 45, BR 550, BG55, FS 80, MS170 I think thats it. Some of that stuff Ive had since I was in seventh grade! I'm a freshman in college now! Good stuff, very happy.

Love the stander. 500HRS in last 2 seasons. Almost paid off. Only thing I will do next round is the rapid height. It would just be super convenient and especially if you have employees running the equipment and we are constantly changing heights.
