    After a very frustrating and expensive week I decided to add a new truck to the line-up. The two 2005 and one 2006 Silverado 2500HD's are aging, and it shows. After a New Jasper 4L80E last November in the '06 and a new one in an '05 this week, :angry:, I feel this is the best plan of action to reduce my stress.

    2015 3500HD fully loaded. Off to up fitters tomorrow for stake body dump and SS MVP3. I am happy I suppose. Perhaps I will quit subbing salt to my buddy and put a v-box in it for '15/'16, but probably not. He has a big boy truck. :salute:

    Nice! thats why I bought my f250, cause my other truck was costing way to much stress & $, so I bit the bullet and got a new one, great to have no worries for a few years.

    Congrats! It's a beast! I bought my 13' two years ago - and never regret buying new.

    Do you have cloth seats in it?

    Thanks guys. Yes cloth seats, going to get covers because I like to get dirty...:p

    Totally rubberized floors which I have never had. Pretty cool. Someone ordered this hog, and never took delivery. I took advantage of the dealers willingness to get it off the lot, some rebates and my grandparents GMS discount as they both retired from ACDelco and GM products here in Rochester. I kind of "stole" it.

    I am trying to run a family, and a business, so cutting down stress will be a healthy decision. I am only 30.

    AWESOME ride. Put a Salt Dogg poly V box in it and you will make a ton of $$$$$$$.
