Excellent choice. I have a question, does that tranny have a low low gear like the old chevys had?

Sounds like a nice truck..good luck with it. I still have nightmares about emptying leaves out of a pick-up with a pitchfork :waving:

Hey thats good to hear :cool:

So it is a Rugby box just sold under a different name which is also good to hear.

You should be good for about 4000lbs with that set up so about 2 yards of 3/4 road base. You will have to see how it handles with a load you may have order some Timbrens for the rear so when you start hauling 8000lbs of gravel the azz won't be dragging on the ground :laugh:

The truck should have plenty braking power I assume the new Chevys run 4wheel disk brakes like the rest of the crowd.

Probably want to up grade the tires right away to something better I don't know if Chevy is still using those LT225/75R16s which are too frigging small up grade them to LT235/85R16 something that will actually pack some weight.

Good Luck you know the first dent in the sheet metal hurts the rest of them just add character :D
