It's raining and I'm bored so I'll play show and tell time.

Bought a new truck a few weeks ago, it's a left over chevy 2500 with a western v plow. I had one demand, it had to be silver, I've always wanted silver and since I was buying new it had to be. It took like three weeks but I finally got them to the price I wanted, I got them down 16k off sticker. When I was leaving I saw they had a 2011 with 10K miles on it for 4k more with no plow, made me feel like I did good lol. At first I wasn't sure on chevy because of their front axle but the new ones seem way overbuilt, plus the LS motor is the best gasser out there in my eyes. Ford's gas motor was a dog when I drove it, I wasn't too happy with it's power, that's why I didn't go with another ford. So far I like it, gets about 15mpg with me driving like an old lady, I pulled a dump trailer totaling 10K lbs for a few days and it did great, had plenty of power to do it.

Nice job Kurt turning to the dark side. The 6.0s are unstoppable imo for a gasser the only problem is the header bolts snap after while. Hey that dump bed looks a little better now haha.

I was looking in the engine compartment yesterday with a friend and I just realized how much room is in there, so down the road it'll be easy to work on, that was the one other thing I didn't like on the fords, the engine is under the dash almost anymore.

Did you clean up that insert you got off me? I like this aluminum one because it's so light and stays clean but I don't like the telescoping ram. Seems like it puts too much pressure in the middle of the truck, where as the scissor ram like you have puts it over the axle when you lift up.
