Painted my truck and did a couple other things.

    So I finally got tired of a plain white truck and decided to change up the color and a few other little things on it. Feels like I'm driving a totally different truck now.
    (sorry for the poor quality pictures, I'll find my nice digital camera tomorrow)



    So... Maybe I did more then paint it and change a couple things.

    Ya, parents finally convinced me I can't save up money forever and take it with me. So I bought myself a "new" truck. :cool:

    Nice. You hanging your unimount on it? or keeping your 98 on plowing duty.

    The 98 and the unimount will be up for sale at some point. I currently have 3 trucks (this one, my 98, and a 91 s10). I'm keeping the s10 to drive to and from work and have no real use for my 98. I'm pretty much set on putting a 9.2 poly V on this truck.

    NICE TRUCK MARK!!! That truck sure is a little better set-up for pulling the trailer you pull at the farm, are you going to swap you gooseneck over to it?

    I'll update my sig eventually lol. I'm waiting for a nice sunny day to get some good pictures of it and wash it. (dealer was 120 miles from home and it was raining the whole way back :mad:)
    I'll be sure to post pics as I go with it. Looking to do quite a bit to it to make it "mine".

    Thanks! It should work very well for me. It's already got a B&W gooseneck in it, prodigy brake controller, and line-x. Previous owner read my mind on what brand of stuff I wanted :nod:
    I really like it. A friend of mine kept trying to get me to buy a 6.7 cummins like he has, just couldn't leave GM.

    I do, its nice driving around and being proud of what I've got vs driving around and not caring.

    It's an 06 so it has the LBZ and the 6 speed allison. I had found a couple 04.5-05 ec/lb truck's but I wanted the LBZ and it took forever to find one.
