    No it sure doesn't, I like how you repainted it and then made it an extended cab. Maybe you posted the wrong truck???????????????

    not only did i repaint, add a bed, and make it an extended cab, i also added a 6.0l V8.

    that is my new truck, a 2005 GMC sierra 2500HD4x4, with every option in the book, very low miles, and in perfect shape. when i say every option, i mean heated leather seats, bose sound system, onstar, power seats/windows/locks/mirrors. heated mirrors. Everything. i got a great deal on it, costs less than a 2008 2500 regular cab bare bones, and just barely broken in.

    KBB value is $24k, i paid $18k out the door with TTL and first month's insurance.

    PLEASE take better care of this one then you did the other one. DONT chop the bed off and make a ghetto wood flatbed. DONT go mudding with it all the time. Dont do things that just generally booger it up.

    Why not make the Z71 into a muddin truck now?

    this truck is NEVER seeing the dirt EVER. it is waaaaaay too nice. the closest it is ever seeing to the off road, is dropping off the new Arctic Cat ATV.

    Honestly... Condradu-freakin-lations! Its about time you got a real truck! Nice choice too! Youll be sorry you got the heated mirrors.. I paid 200.00 to have my top glass replaced. Someone wacked it cuz they stick out so far.

    nice to have all those options, you always think, oh i dont need that! but once you have it you wont want to go back to another base work truck.

    Why is it I think Mikey is a future Topsites? :hammerhead:

    If you didn't take care of the 99 why do you think this pickup will be any different?

    the old truck was an expensive lesson well learned. if i screw this one up, i'm f***ed, cause i still have to make the payments on it.
