    I thought that plaque on the hood meant it had a Duramax in it?

    Spray on is the only way to go IMO.

    i may start a war, i dont know, but what are your opinions on the best spray in liner? i am leaning toward line-x, but am not against considering others...and i would at some point spray the rockers and lower doors too, probably in bodycolor bedliner. i had grey speedliner on my 99 and was happy...but i think i want a little higher quality on this new of a truck...

    I really like the crew cabs Chevys. It doesn't need a plow, it will be a great personal truck.

    that truck is going to work its a$$ off all summer to make it worth the check that was written for it...but its my daily driver too, so it goes back and forth to school all winter, plus whatever work i can snag...so it will by no means be babied, but it wont be trashed either...i like a good image on the jobsite :)

    PS: im really excited to test the integrated trailer brake controller...any opinions??

    Land Yachts rule! I dont have a crew, ECLB.

    7-4 Homesteader should be fine.

    I like my integrated brake controller. Its pretty good. It gets you close and you just fine tune it. Wait till you use the tow haul mode. Can you say jake brake?

    does the tow/haul jake brake thing work?? i have heard varied reviews...i am excited to try it. do you have to use the button on the shifter and manually knock it down a gear or is it automatic when in T/H? does the shift button on the gearshift really do much? my old truck had tow/haul, but that was it...no shift button, and only a 4spd tranny instead of 6...
