    Congrats on the new truck, sorry to hear the reason for it though.
    New trucks have come along way.
    Back in 2011 I moved from a 1999 truck to a loaded 2011, nothing the same between the two.
    Blue tooth for the phone, dual zone digital temp control, heated seats, power everything, better horsepower ratings and better fuel mileage, yea new trucks are more like a family sedan with a bed and the ability to tow.

    I'm getting used to her. I went from a 2500 to a 1500, the old 2500 seemed to have a smoother ride. that may be due to the 1500 having the Z71 package. or may be the old 2500 was just loose and broke in. I was actually thinking of going away from the ranchero shocks and see if that made any difference. other than that, I Love the looks and handling. I only had the truck a few weeks so i'm still finding new pros and cons. mostly I think its just me and what I'm used to. over all, it is a big change. kind of like when you change girlfriends, some things you miss from the old one, only because you just got used to her and her ways. then the new girl comes along and does things you didn't know about.
