    Well I have gone rogue... LOL

    Stepped outside the box and picked up a nice 07 Black 1500 Z71 LTZ with tan leather and Bose stereo.

    It's pretty stock with 73K miles but very well kept one owner. I have plans for dual flowmaster exhaust, leveling kit with 33" nittos, programmer, CAI, and weathertech floor mats.

    Anyway, I have owned 2 rangers, 3 F150s and 2 F250s, and one 2500HD (hated the older body style)

    I'll keep a watch out around here, pretty set in what I need and such but I'm sure I'll have a question along the way...

    Welcome to the club! You say you have the leather and the bose setup, so it can't be too stock. You'll have to join the black truck group now that you've fulfilled the requirements..hehe

    Welcome to GMTC! The model you picked up is good, the NBS trucks are awesome! I loved my 2003, sold it to my dad when I traded up to the NNBS, the only reason was that I was having a kid and thought the CC would be a better fit and I knew it would be the only new truck I'd get for at least another 10 years. Ford makes a good truck, but IMO there is absolutely nothing better than a Silverado or Sierra! Good to see another Texan, I'm originally from the RGV and San Antonio is one of my favorite places to visit when I can find the time to make it back to Texas.

    Thanks Guys!!! Yeah, So far I love it! I do miss my tight Ford steering but hoping these crummy passenger tires the prev owner bought are the cause. I also miss my "Oh Shoot" bar on the Driver side when getting in the truck. Old habits die hard! Otherwise, the ride, stereo and comfort is WAY better!

    Here are a few dealer photos! And my 04 FX4 it is replacing!
