    Default Got rid of F-150 today, bought another Chevy

    Had an F-150 for past 3 years, it was a nice enough truck, but I needed a 3/4 ton. My faithful old '97 K2500 is getting so tired and beat up that I don't really trust it for road trips any more. It is now just the ranch "beater" for as long as it lasts. Bought an '07 2500HD, std. cab, long box, W/T 4x4. It has something I had heard was last available in '06 - a NV4500 5speed manual !! I will do some towing with it and I have always prefered a manual trans. for towing. Am impressed with the torque of the 6.0 - much better than my old 350 Chev and light years better than the Ford ! Since my "new to me" truck is a W/T, it's doesn't have much for options, but the only thing I'm going to really miss is the cruise control. It's white and most of the trim is black and the previous owner added black running boards, I'm going to stick with the black and white look. Bought a black aluminum tool box today and ordered a black ranchhand grill guard. Will get rid of the decals also. Will have some upgrades to do, especially tires, has 245/75/16's now - nowhere to go but up from those.
