i had an 03 blue silverado ss that i loved but i killed it wioth eveything i did to it towing a 14k inclosed car trailer loading it up with scrap metal to take to the junk yard, so i traded in on a 4 door 1500hd, well thats where it all went down hill, that truck was a mess and i dumped way to much money in it so i sold it and bought an 08 gmc 2500 hd desial crew cab, loved the truck but just way more than i need it for, so yesterday i traded it in on an 05 awd silver silverado ss with 49k miles on it,

the ss was a garaged kept, never driven in snow or bad weather, drove 3 hours one way to look at it then 4 hours back in traffic, the trucks only mod is a soft bed cover, it looks just as good from 20 feet as it does at 5 even the inside of the crome rims are mint,

i ordered from the dealer a couple silverado decals [want to put under the ss on the doors] and factory vent visors, also going to put a brake control in and order the led under tailgate brake light,

thinking about a cowl hood but not sure, also looking for winter wheels dont want to destroy the crome ones,

i just might find the reason to clean out the 2 car garage and put it in there, next to the 56 victoria i have, and buy a winter 4x4 beater

have pics just need to figure out how to attach them,

pick up a 4x4 beater / new tow rig, its a 95 2500 4x4 big block suburban,

decided that i am going to do a couple things to the truck is a spray in bedliner... possilby the carpeted liner with a mat. and get rid of the bedliner thats in there now, and factory fog lights with custom made brackets, i have the side caps with the extended wing from my old blue ss but i am thinking about selling it, dont know what to do the truck is so nice dont want to mess with it,
