From 445 Bainbridge Seattle ferry.

Still have not tried link yet. About 5pm pacific time. Hopefully pics about 8pm ish.....

Grit,
I did get a 4.3. very pleased with power so far. Seems on par to slightly better than C2500 before the blown Vortec 350. Can definetly tell 1st is lower geared. On freeway running 600 or so rpm less. Now to see how having a 3900 RA vs 6000 springs will be.

If I can get brake controller installed tomorrow. I'll be pulling trailer Saturday with decks to go outside Big Time brewery in U district. Son's are installing these for customer use. Hopefully uasable in a week or so. Maybe two of ten sections Sunday. Or I'll use ihc to pull my trailer. Neither should have as issue with maybe 4000 lbs behind it.

Yeah yeah,

I'm positive my paternal grandfather that had a Frod dealership back in the 20's, in the Georgetown part of Seattle. 2 Blocks from original Rainer brewery, is rolling in his grave with my driving chebby's! Lolol
He sold my grandma a model T?!?!? she kept bringing it back to get fixed....and rest is history.......

Now to see if I can get pictures loaded.....

Very true.

Altho this one is a 2014. But I do like the 14-19 body style look. Not sure about the 19-current style. MPG is a bit less too. That might be because of some of the emissions and mpg regs 45 got rid of.
this is nicest highest interior chebby I've owned.

I sent a pic of back area and seat to youngest daughter. Said new twuck has newest child seat rings to lock in place for the "spawn" "her words" due in June. She seemed happy about that.

Spouse wants to know when she gets a ride in it. As do pupsters.

Congrats Marty!! Sure didn't take long to fix the issue of your broken truck! I think that old truck actually did you a favor! [emoticon] That new one will surely be a joy to drive.

I like white! It always looks clean, is cooler, and wax seems to last longer! Your tonneau cover looks like my Access cover! I've had them on 3 new trucks, and they are good covers, that last forever.

Don't just give the Mrs a ride, let her drive it, you may get rewarded afterwards! [emoticon]

If I remember correctly, the wires for the brake controller are already installed. They are taped way up in the dash. I used a P3 when I had mine. Connect the wires, used a zip tie to connect P3 under the dash, and was on my way.

Also, it will tow 10k lbs. However, you will need weight distribution if you get a heavy tongue weight.

Enjoy the truck!
