    Ok, the color of the truck I am looking at is gray stone metallic. The truck is a Chevy 2500HD crew cab short bed 6.6 auto with the new 6 speed auto Would color should the lettering be? Also how many people plow with crew cabs?

    plowing with a crew cab will suck big time IMO, ive been plowing for a long time (yea i know i don't even have my license yet) in just an ext cab and that can be a pita at times.

    Ignore people that sit on phone books too drive, plowing with a crew can is fine, just have to be a little more careful, its nice to be able to see out the windows, plus its comfortable.

    Yea mike I know what you mean about being a crew cab and plowing. But this is going to be a personal/ work truck. I am leaning more towards an ext cab long bed though. My regular cab is getting small right now, hauling 3 people while doing jobs is kinda of a tight fit.

    Yea, thats what I like about having a crew cab more room and hauling my crew around and still being comfortable.

    I would imagine a crew would be fine for plowing, you actually have some side windows to look out of. I hate extended cab side windows, they're too small for anything, there might as well be sheet metal over them. Best visibility is standard cabs and crews, I'm partial to standards though.

    I would never buy a truck unless it had a long box, which makes it impossible for me to ever buy a crew cab because the truck gets to be like steering the titanic in a hurry. But if you can get away with a short box, go for the crew cab.

    There you go talking about stuff you have no clue about again. And you were talking about plowing in a suburban in your other thread. Now THAT'S a PITA my friend.
