    Went to the beach (Long beach, Washington) with the family over the weekend and could not resist taking pics of the Chevy in the sand...

    Notice in the distance over the hood is a bald eagle on a perch.

    very nice! Is that a new brush guard? I don't remember seeing it in your other pics. I'll have to look again.

    Well, guess I was wrong. Still looks awesome though!:great:

    aahhh, Long Beach....spent many a fine day there. I see you got the Wa. coast sunshine, and how did you get those lawn chairs to keep from blowing away?? That eagle's not perched...he's hanging on so he doesn't end up in Olympia!! Hope you guys stopped at the curio museum and said hi to the alligator boy...

    Nice truck by the way...you can make a truck payment just by hangin' out and pulling stuck tourists out of the sand for a fee...the locals make a killing LOL!!! Kerry.:redface: :shocked:

    Thanks for the great comments guys!
    The brushguard and lights, wheels and tires, chrome accents, vent visors, and Line-x bed liner were all installed at the dealer and were on the truck when I bought it new (they called it the "Northwest Package"). I only added the chrome fuel door, bed extender, and HID light kit.

    Long beach, WA is the only beach I have been to in Washington that you can drive on and is considered a state hi-way so no ORV's are allowed. I have been to Sand Lake on the Oregon Coast near Tillamook where you can ride or drive ORV's on the beach.

    The weather was cloudy and in the upper 60's and not windy at all but we all managed to get a little color from playing in the sand and wading in the water. We did pay an annual visit to Jake-The Alligator Man at Marsh's free museum.

    My wife can take her top off on the beach...then the truck becomes invisible. I can still see it but everybody else says "what truck?" I am glad you got a calm day over there...there's a reason they have the kite festival in Long Beach LOL. Kerry.
