    Well, I am 18 and have been using a mini-van the past two years...and I finally decided to buy a truck. She's an 05' Silverado with just over 22k miles on her..

    Very sharp looking truck man! Is it 2500 or 1500, looks like a 2500 because of the brush covers, but I wasn't sure?

    haha, sorry..not trying to be too hardcore!*trucewhiteflag*

    Its the 1500, with the 4.8 Vortec. Was lookin at another one with the bigger engine...but I figured this would pull just fine and do a little better on gas.

    Not a penny of help from the parents :weightlifter:

    I like the look of the brush gaurds. I got the 4.8 too. I was looking to get the next size enginge to, but my main concern was the V8, your right it is pretty good on gas.

    why buy a short bed for work? if a long bed is made -always go with that in a work truck
