    Don't forget that all your friends and family who don't have trucks would be calling you to haul crap for them.

    I want to get a light pick up to haul around my junk for outdoor activities but good lord try finding a used light pick up truck for sale.

    Yeah, the Dodges are nice. But after my '09 Silverado basically saved my life after t-boning another vehicle and rolling over several times, I figured I better stick with Chevy.

    Nothing says you will never, ever, ever, ever in your entire life become even remotely close to being cool like owning a Pick Up Truck. LOL Pick up trucks are for people who don't give a shit about being cool.

    Lol, yep. My old Silverado had the extra cab AND the 8 foot bed. It was like a hunnert feet long. I miss that truck though. You can't even get that configuration in the 1500 anymore.

    Let me put it like this. Would you get into a truck with Grind?

    Just because I'd want him to haul something, doesn't mean I have to ride along. I could ask him to haul out my trash, right?
    But to answer your question, he's never done me wrong, so yeah, I probably would.

    I've only paid cash for cars since about 1995. It's a reality check.

    no doubt if I lived there I would pay for heated seats

    Well, now it seems that I can't get an 8' box on anything that isn't a fleet type vehicle. Every year they disrespect tradesmen more and more in the auto industry.
    Once in a while you can get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    Yep, my fancy new Silverado has a 6'-6" bed, and it SUCKS. It's nice to ride in though.
