    Well after reading the thread from 91ak250 and the comments saying subtle is cool now im not so sure im gonna get good feedback. How ever i kinda got what i wanted from this. all black trucks looking the same with decals and a name that you can notice from across the street and read from far enough away. Ive had a bunch of people say they like the way the trucks look so..............

    Subtle is cool but wont get you business. That stands out in a crowd and I think it looks good.

    in its own way, i think its kind of subtle enough not be annoying, but also is eye-catching enough to stand out to be noticed. i think it looks great. and ive always loved that style GMC

    I think black trucks make a company look shady, But I do like the way the lettering pops on the side of the truck.

    Looks good

    Black trucks look so much cooler with 2'' of salt caked on the hood.

    What are you running for tires on the rear? I have the same truck I just picked up in the late spring and I am just starting to work on it. It currently has over the road tires, which will not be any good for traction while plowing.

    im not sure whats on there for tires right now.there not over the road tires, kinda aggressive but im not sure make or model.
    im in thousand islands for the weekend ill take a look at it for yea when i get home. i want to get a plow for the fron of it just to have as a back up truck just in case something breaks on one of my other trucks. i started a thread on hear a month a so ago about plowing with these trucks. when i find it ill post the link i think it was montioned about tires. im not to sure though.
