    Slick lookin truck. What motor does it have? 6.0 or 8.1? How long have you had it? Is the plow new?

    ive only had it a couple months. its only a 6.0, 8.1 is to much of a gas hog. the plow is a year old had it on my last truck and transfered it over to this one.

    Pahl: Nice truck, dude! How's the Western holding up?

    I am in the same boat as you, high school.........:dizzy:

    Only, I'm fourteen, turning fifteen Monday. I already bought my truck, being it was a needed for lawn maintenance. In 2009, when I get my license, I plan on putting a plow on my truck (Boss or Western). Do you have a salter as well?

    If you don't mind, could we see some more interior pictures, and maybe some "action" pictures.

    The 2500 HD has a completely different transmission as the 1500! You have nothing to worry about as long as you maintain the truck and don't pound the crap out of it.

    I know its a little different a little more heavy duty but the guy at the one shop we use has said he has seen many chevys from 90000-110000 miles that have gone out i guess theres a plate in there that basicaly wares out if smokes your tranny. But thats just what he said.

    Routine maintenance is the key to everything. We had a 96 Tahoe that we were told actually my mechanic said that he had done more trannies on 92-98 Chevy's than anything else. We changed fluid every 25-30K and it ran no problems. The only problem was my wife rear ending someone coming off the highway and talking on a cell phone. Of course she is a Director of HR and it clearly states in the manual since she is the one that wrote it about talking on cellphones while driving on company time. That truck went to the junkyard after that. So the short end of the stick is basically just do routine maintenance and watch the brakes. That was the only thing we had issues with.

    nope not dads truck my truck. dad has a 03 2500HD i bought this one on my own. i do landscapig the summer with my buddy who also has the same truck as i do and he also plows daddy didnt pay for his either we both do landscaping and mowing in the summer with a 06 exmarks HP which we both bought so dont go and saying daddys money when there are high schoolers that do work there ass off to get there stuff. My cousin is a mechanic and he said that trannys on these trucks dont usually go out untill 130,140 just make sure to do regular maintance. the guy i bought it from didnt do any pulling besides his snowmobile trailer and never plowed with it, was mostly just a truck for casual business driving "Highway Miles"

    Thats my favorite style of recently made trucks. It looks really nice. Keep up the good work.

    The truck looks awsom, you must take good care of it.

    I agree Pahls,
    I'm in high school too and I get tired of all the jellos remarks by people who say there is no way for a high schooler to buy all this kind of stuff. If you think about it it's actually easier for us to buy it than "daddy", I don't have a mortgage, property tax, food bills, a wife that likes to $hop.....
    So I have more $$ to spend on things like mowers, trailers, trucks, plows, salters and a garage. Just think about it.:drinkup:
