    So it sounds like you probably made money and got a better suited truck, too.
    Good Job. I like the 90's model Chevy/GM trucks. Mine is a 1500 but acts like a one-ton.
    They're great workhorses.

    http://www.dieselplace.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=21 your new best friend.

    a lot of people say the 6.5 is a horrible motor, but really all of the problems stem from a few little GM design flaws that are really easy and simple fixes. I've almost had my 6.5 for a year now and have really learned a lot about it. if you have any questions feel free to ask.

    Nice truck. If I owned it I would paint the rims blue, paint the rust on the door, put a lighted visor on, and put a head ache rack on. What are you planning on putting on it for a plow?

    By looking at your logo, Think I saw one of those trucks pulling a single axle trailer with a sign on the gate last week on the 400. I may be wrong.

    Here are a recent picture of my 99 and my 2010. I ended up installing a 7.6 Western uni-mount on the 99.
