    Bought the truck about a month ago. 2007 Chevy 3500. Bought it down in Florida, very clean. Getting the plow put on the truck Friday. They already had it built so I snapped a picture. I'm pretty excited. Looking forward to the season!

    There isn't much difference between and 2500HD and a 3500. Extra leaf spring, bigger tires, and higher GVW. The truck itself is great though. Lot's of power. Can't wait to start moving some snow with it!

    Definitely undercoat that truck to keep it that clean. Nice rig!

    Yep, most likely. I was grabbing a bite to eat for the Browns game. Had it parked right by the street. I snapped this picture right before I went up there. Sorry for the dark picture, but I didn't feel like standing out in the rain. What part of town are you from?

    Thanks guys!

    Seasons, I haven't been up there in a while. I will have to keep an eye out for your truck.
    Let me know if you run into a pinch this year. I have pretty light route so far. Trying to add a few residentials in the area. Talk to you soon!

    Nice setup and hope you have many great years with it. I know its personal taste the only thing that bugs me about that style trucks is the mirrors. The way they look and angle up just seems cheap or kind of a bad aftermarket product.

    I agree, I'm not too crazy about them either. To be honest, I can never seem to get them to angle properly either. They are almost too big. That's what really ticks me off.
    My days of "pimpin" my truck are over though. If it doesn't have a direct effect on profit I'm not going purchase it. The mirrors will just have to do. The only styling this truck is going to get is a nice wax every once and a while and keeping it clean. Especially once I get it lettered up.

    I was hoping you didn't't think I was a jerk about the mirrors LOL. I hate when they mess with a good thing and over complicate something like a mirror. I have had 3 two door S10 blazers i plow with great for residential driveways. 1996 250K miles rod knock done, 1999 200k still going , 2003 110K still going. All three never had a power window failure. 2008 Ford Expedition driver window dead at 40k pass dead at 60K, motors and electronics fine but the mechanical cable system rusts and binds up $300 a piece in parts for me to fix. I understand glitches with new technologies in their first few years but come on You can't make a power window last ??? Not bashing any brands have them all but good mirrors windows and stuff should be easy to make functional and reliable. Again many trouble free miles for you and your new ride and great season !!
