    Cool Newbie from VA

    Hey all, glad I found this site as I've already gotten some good advice!!!

    This is my first experience with a Chevy Truck, and with a 4X4 so I'm sure I'm going to need a bunch of advice.

    It's a 2000 Silverado 4X4 with 173k with the 5.3l. It seems solid and strong!

    Wish me luck....I've got a lot to learn.
