    I like it you did good my friend, You will like the Curtis. Do you plan on lettering it? My advice is not to if your going to use it for your personal vehicle, but you know opinions are assholes everyones got em and they all stink. I like that model of Chevys they should have kept that style or the previous one.

    Take a look at it, its got the cheap base steel wheels on it, doesn't even have the trim on it, as well as the stainless mirrors, the truck is 4 years old which leads me to believe its nothing more than a dressed up work truck and believe it or not, it is possible for a 17 year old to own a truck like this but I chose to move out of mommy and daddy's house and be on my own.

    LOL my parents dont buy me crap, they provide me with a roof to live under and that is IT, hell I pay for my own food, clothes, insurance, car payment, cell phone, etc. You should see the kids at my school who LIVE off their parents and will prolly be dependent on them their whole lives now, their parents buy them hummers and esclades and stupid crap like that, it pisses me off, royaly. I built my business on my own with nothing but my freinds and family supporting me. I paid a fair price for this truck and got a loan for it with a co-sign. And yes it is the base work package, but it is a work truck, and im 17, i dont need a bunch of luxuries, its not like im 60 and cant lean down to crank the window open. And sorry if I still live with "mommy and daddy" but im 17 and dont plan on moving out until im done with college.

    anyway i love this truck and I gotta get to work. later.

    I think the only engine you can get with Plow prep package is the 6.0

    mark, don't sweat the small talk. it is a good truck and your right why waste money on gadjets you don't need. that truck should were great for a work truck and make you some good money.i leave you with one more piece of advice don't sell yourself short on what you make plowing. snow removal is a EMERGENCY service and you should be paid like it is. we work around the clock and for days on end so just make sure you bring in enough money to pay the bills and keep you happy.

    You can get the plow prep with any motor. It is the bed and cab configuration that kinda decide as to if you can get it or not.

    thanks guys, I love it. I didnt get home until 10 last night (did a sod job and retaining wall) then I finished building my sides (hopefully i didnt wake anyone up). It looks really sharp with the sides. LOL. but ya its the 6.0 like Mike said. I havent floored it yet, im kinda scared to, I dont wanna mess her up!

    anyway, back to class, autoshop next hour and im gonna give her a bath!

    I hear ya, I just get POed when people say stuff like "oh your mommy and daddy must have gotten you that",
    because I work hella hard to get what I have (pay my own truck, insurance, gas, phone, equipment, etc) and the last thing I want is people saying stuff like "must be nice to have parents buy you stuff". You know what I mean. I only tell a few of my customers my age, and you should see their face, they're shocked, but in a good way. LOL. This guy I did the retaining wall for, I told him, and hes like "wow I used to do that when I was 17, but this day and age I would have never thought someone your age would be working like that" (because most kids live off mom and pop).

    But hey, I LOVE THIS TRUCK! Its saweeeet.

    On saturday I got offered to be a sub for plowing. I dont know if I should take it or not, he has about 5 trucks and he is now subing some jobs out, execpt he wants me to do his resi. But I want to get some of my own commercial accounts first and then maybe work for him. But hey, got like 5 months to get my own accounts!
