    Thanks guys, I wanted the regular cab not only for the shorter wheelbase, but I like te regular cab better for a regular cab. As for plowing, I haven't been able to push anything significant to tell, but they both have 4:10s. It has 120k on it, but was a one owner, and felt very comfortable with the condition of it. I got it for right under 11k and felt that it was a fair deal. Under trade in value so I jumped on it. Gonna do a full fluid flush in te next couple of weeks front to back so I know it's ready to roll. Thanks for the complements, I'll post more as I add more stuff to it.

    Heres some of the controller. Much easier to use than the handheld with the auto I was doing. Basically a u bolt, double nutted to prevent it form loosening, then velcro and thats how the controller is attached to the bracket. I would like a more permeant way to mount the controller to the bracket, but this should work for now!

    Thanks! The running boards were just not my thing, but I can see the benefit. The edges were to show how bad they were, both were replaced, I just didn't bother taking a photo! I doubt it would unhook from the truck with how bad they were!!
