    Hi All ! nice to find this group. as a life long Chevy Lover I finally own a Brand New Sparkling Silverado.:party: DSCF1795.jpg it took me to age 50 to get one but well worth the wait. actually its the first Brand New vehicle I have owned, heck I have never even owned a new bicycle in my life. my last truck, Blue 2001 Silverado 6.0 2500HD crew got totaled in a snow storm last month when a guy :jap:in a rice burner slammed into my FL wheel and pushed it into the frame, bending the frame.:unlove: DSCF1751.jpg WOW have things changed in the past 12 years. there is a lot to learn about the new truck. now I have to get a new phone, mine still has a hinge and don't do that Bluetooth thingie with the radio. who would have thunk it ?

    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.
