At It Again!


I hate truck shopping. I really need to get this over with. I like Chevys 6-11 bed.
Had 8 bed since 1976

The nice thing about the Chevy bed is that you get full support for 8 ft material with the tailgate down. Ford falls a foot short.

Re: At It Again!


I was out messing around looking at trucks while we looked at cars for my wife.

I really liked that chevy had the work truck package that you could add bluetooth stuff to. Also saw one with a nice flatbed. I have all the bells and whistles on my truck now and really don't need them, plus I really like vinyl seats for cleaning. I doubt I'd be buying a truck anytime soon but if they gave a good enough deal on mine I might with 0% interest.

Re: At It Again!


I'm contemplating a new one, my '12 is creeping up on 200k.

I like having the stoutness of the 2500, but new 1500s can tow more than mine and have a heck if a lot nicer ride

It's not a real truck if you can't put a 4x8 sheet and close the gate.
