    Default Feels Good To Have A Truck Again

    Greetings everyone! My name is Matt and I live in North Carolina.

    Man, I forgot how nice it was to have a truck again. After having to get rid of my old Silverado because of my commute to work, I got to go out and get me a truck again yesterday. I was able to find a 2008 Silverado ext. cab 4x4 LT nearby with only 20,800 miles on it! I got a great deal on my trade in (especially since I had negative equity) and got a great deal on the truck itself. So I'm happy to say I'm back in action!

    Just wanted to introduce myself and show off my new ride. May not be as impressive as some others on here, but it's mine, and I love her!

    Welcome-
    Hey that is a GOOD LOOKING truck-red is a good color for trucks.
    LT must mean you get the 5.3- not the 4.8 right?

    Oh yeah, 5.3. Only way to go in my book (nothing personal against anyone with a 4.8, just what I prefer).

    Glad for you and welcome to the club, had to sell my 2000 Silverado a few years ago leaving my 04 Monte Carlo SS as daily driver . Great car for the HWY with 28 mpg and handled kinda sporty but really missed having a truck.
