(Another) New tow vehicle for us

Good morning folks.
The wife and I just put a down payment on a MUCH more reliable tow vehicle.

We're getting a 2011 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab 4x4. 5.3L v8. 3.42 rear end. 9700 tow cap. 7000 gvwr. Only 31000 miles on it.

Should be just a little bit better than the breakdown plagued Suburban and much steadier than the 99 Blazer we have.

While I would have loved to keep the 'burb for it's cargo capacity and seating, it was a money pit.

Here's the only pic I have so far. We're waiting for the title to arrive from GM.

Nice truck. No prettier color than black when clean. No harder color to keep clean. I swore off black vehicles years ago, but its hard to resist them when all shined up.
