    Well as I'm sure most of you guys with crews that drive your trucks know, you don't really enjoy getting in the truck at the end of the day and having to move empty bottles etc out of the way, then sitting in the seat and having the sweat of your employees soak into your back. Part of the problem I've been having.

    So the solution was to buy a personal "luxury" truck for daily driving. Its a 2008 GMC sierra 1500 extended cab SLT Z71 All Terrain. Got everything but the sun roof, wood grain on the dash, and navigation. 5.3L V8

    I know the pictures are really crappy, thats cause its dark outside and theres not enough room in my garage to take good pictures. I'll grab some good ones tomorrow though.

    Just thought I'd share.

    Hey thanks for all the compliments. Drove it for about 150 miles today just "testing her out". I love it. I got some real nice incentives on it. Got it at GMS price with the employee discount. Heres some whole shots. I'm waxing her down right now, yanno.... since she looks so filthy and all:rolleyes:

    I'm trying out that new meguiars NXT wax. Any opinions on that? Whats the best wax to use to get that wet look like it was just professionally detailed? I've tried so many different kinds. Meguiars gold class, mothers cleaner wax, mothers pure carnuba, turtle wax ICE, Nano wax, NuFinish, and now I'm trying this NXT stuff which it seems most guys I talk to swear by. I didn't try all those on this truck, just on different ones over the years.
