    Default Tow/Haul Mode/ New Daily

    Well after 176K miles my s10 decided it wanted a hole in the trans and it popped....

    After that while hauling it home I came across an s10, called the guy, got it all set up to pick up in 3 days... Drive all the way down (80 miles) to get it, guy stiffs me and says he sold it. Ok fine, whatever, karma will get him.

    Go to dealership to look at one, dealership owner is a prick, I end up walking out. Strike 2.... one more im out.

    I was just going to get another s10, then my dad talked some sense into me... I race my car a LOT all year long when I have it... I borrow his truck to tow it to the track, and it just becomes a hassle to borrow it... So he got me thinking, why not get my own full size so i can tow as well as have a good 4 wheel drive truck for winter. It made more sense. So thats where the tow/haul mode in the title comes in to play... Once I get to browsing the forum and locate the other cars section, ill post up the other daily driver part time race car

    Anyway, back to the new truck search....
    I hop on craigslist and finally found this one, test drove it. LOVED IT.
