    Default Just picked up a Z71

    Hows it going. My name is Justin, i live in boring old iowa and I just picked up a 96 silverado extended cab last week and i am SO glad to be driving a fullsize again (first extended cab truck too!). I have only had the truck a week and i already love it, so far all it has done to it is a K&N sri and a hypertech power programmer III. Hopefully will do exhaust next spring but not sure ( i have an 85 mustang GT i play with so that takes most of the money).

    Welcome to the forum Justin! Good looking truck, congrats!

    My truck was also my first non-single cab. The extra room is great!

    Welcome to the site and congrat's on the new Z71! I had a '96 2wd for about 150,000 miles before I traded it in on a '99 3/4 short bed 2wd. Great trucks, have fun!
