I bought myself a 2004 Silverado back in June and am just now getting around to posting a few pictures. Because I'm only a part-timer, the half ton short bed does fine for me. When I take on the occasional mulch job, I haul it on my trailer. I traded my 2002 because it was a 5 speed (I really miss it deep down) and it was killing my bad knee. The Doctor diagnosed me with Chrondomilatia of the Patella. I decided to visit a few dealers and see what they could do for me on an automatic. If it was going to cost me a lot more money, I was just going to tough it out with the 5 speed. But, was able to buy this truck with no money down, plus the $3500 in rebates for $15 less per month compared to the 2002. I had about 4,000 in equity on my trade, so that helped a lot also. This truck has the 4800 V8, auto, tilt, cruise, cd, uplevel cloth seats (from the LS). The Arrival Blue really looks awesome and gets me a ton of compliments.
