    Well I gave in I missed my old GMC. So I sold the F150 and went on a search for a gmc with a 5.7 350 and all power and push button 4x4. So my search prolonged for a bit. Decided to go check out a truck. So I said ya I will go for it well I bought it lol. 1998 GMC Sierra 1500 Ext. Cab Short Bed. It has a 3" Flowmaster exhuast and K&N system. Truck has 3" body lift and 33" tires. It has 138k on it but runs great. Tranny was redone 2 years ago and the tranny has a shift kit. I paid $2,500. I thought I got a good deal. On the passenger side it has some small dents. I am going to go pick up the truck on friday. I will get more pics. Here is the pic from the listing.

    Probably not. It will just be a everyday truck. I will just plow with the f250.

    That's why I didnt get a Chevy. The front end's are ugly. I love the style of these older gmc's. But IDK if I like it more then the looks of my f250. But when I test drove it, it remined me of how comfortable my other truck was. I mean this 98 isn't in as good of shape as my 96 was. But the price was right and with a little lovin' I couldn't go wrong. I was surprised when I looked at the truck there was no rust on the cab corners. But the only rust is on the bottom of the third door thats it. I can't wait to get it home. My buddy couldnt loan me his dealer plate because he needed it or else I would have brought someone with me and I would have driven it back. Lawnpro It is at exit 42 geneva on I90

    Hey I can't say anything because I still am a proud ford owner. Just added a GMC to the stable.

    What happened to the 90's f350 you bought a few months ago? I must have missed something!

    I bought the 95 f350 with hopes to pick up more accounts and I didnt pick up any, but I lost some. So I sold it made a few bucks on it. I bought a 1997 F-150 which was a really nice truck. But I started to miss my old 96 gmc and thought maybe I could replace it. So I sold the F150 and bought another gmc. Pic of my old truck.
