I bet he does fine and you have "no idea" what his overhead is.

At the company I still work for we only have long beds and pull 18 foot trailers. However, we take care of hospitals, hotels, train stations.... places where you can move around easily.

I figured, with me doing residential properties, it could be a little difficult to drive with that extra length of a long bed. I have a 18x8 trailer coming in a few weeks, hopefully that would be able to take care of extra space needed.

Honestly, I love it. It's an inline-6 engine which is a lot different from the powerstroke or duramax, but it definitely delivers the power.

Nothing to do with the engine, but the only thing I found a little annoying was the crazy hard suspension, you feel ever bump!

The company I work for only buys Silverado 2500's and one thing I have to say is that they really drive like a car, very smooth.

Hahaha, no no these are photos from two months ago. I picked up the truck on Christmas Eve, and took photos a few days later, just never had the time to post any.

For the last 2 weeks, the snow has melted almost everywhere. The company I work for are already doing spring cleanups, and I did one on my front yard.

Almost the whole remainder of this week is around 51 degrees Fahrenheit...

Very odd for this area. But I cant wait to start cutting some grass so bring in the warm air!!

Chevy's do have a nice ride, but it doesnt take any kind of load to set the rear end on the ground. Dodge has a real suspension, sure its rough, but it takes alot to pull the rear end down..

Nice truck btw, I love that color..
