    Outside and inside look good. Hopefully the mechanicals are just as good. What crazy low price did you pay for it?

    Like they said, don't put a Speed Cast on it. You should put a 7.5' Fisher HD on it. If you are worried about the HD's weight then you should go with the 7.5' SD like I have on my trucks. I would defiantly stay away from the HT if I was you.

    my dad owns it and i will be one driving it. i had the other truck with me at school and we need a 2nd one. been looking for a while now. i wanted a extended cab and he went looked at that truck and liked it and bought it. my first reaction when he told me he was looking at it was no. why a crew cab. its grown on me a little more now. it will be good this winter when we go snowmobiling we can put all our stuff in the back seat and it will be good this summer when we go to camp.

    its still really weird looking back when backing up and see a back seat ha

    You will love the crew cab. I have always had extended cabs myself. But I love all the extra space in the cab now.

    You will get used to the crew cab. I like having all the extra space to put things back there and some times it's nice to take four or five people in one truck.
