    Nice looking truck. How many miles is on it and if you don't mind me asking how much did you pay for it. Does it have a 6.0 liter. I am curious because I am looking at a 2000 GMC 2500 4X4 standard cab 6.0.

    I like the new truck- however, how do you plan on keeping it nice. Maybe up north it is easier but down in Houston most lawn service trucks look really beat-up. I'm not trying to sound smart but I too have tried to keep my truck looking good but always things happen and it gets a beating. Maybe if you throw seat covers on it and use trailers-only to haul tools.
    I have seen someone using a new Navigator to cut yards-weird?

    Looks nice have fun with her, that pickup is mine, eventually youll learn a work truck is a work truck, i already got a huge sratch on the back from workin with it, oh well things happen. I'm hopefully gonna be buying a nother truck soon. Get your license yet?

    how can a kid who doesn't even have his license yet afford a 2001 3/4 ton 4x4 crew cab that is loaded? This is my third year in biz and i'm doing twice as much work this year as last year. I don't buy a truck unless i can pay for it. The only debt i have is the mower and it's a sweet financing deal, I guess i rather put my money into something that will make it back. I can drive a $2000 truck like mine and get a $7500 (+$1600 bagger) mower like mine, or i can drive a $25,000 truck like yours and use a push mower! I prefer to ride, thanks!

    Regardless, it looks like a VERY nice truck.. but i can't see myself working out of a purdy truck :) Good luck with it. If it's paid for, congrats. Feels good don't it?! If it's not paid for, I certainly don't envy you. Enjoy those payments!!! haha.....
