Thumbs up New TV On The Way

I ordered my new truck today, a Chev K2500HD. Regular cab, long box in Imperial Blue Metallic. Just a 6 L under the hood. I really can't justify the Duramax for the amount (and TT size) of towing that I do.

Truck should arrive in late October.

You should have upgraded the truck.
Your next trailer will be a 34 ft fifth wheel with 2 slides.

The new toy was scheduled to be built last week. I'll post a couple of pics when I get it.

It is a bit of overkill isn't it . I also so use my truck to haul firewood & a snowmobile.

Two of my 1st 3 trucks were 1/2 tons, a '82 & a '94. I was hauling more often w/ the '94 & found that the rear suspension wasn't stout enough (added 2 leaves on each side), so I moved up to the LD 3/4 ton in 2000.

Thumbs up

The TV arrived @ the dealership & I dropped the '04 off to have it prepped for the new owners. I'm not able to pick up the new toy until early Nov' so I took some pics to drool over until I get it. The actual colour is Imperial Blue Metallic. It was an overcast afternoon, so it kinda looks black.
