"New" truck for Crabman

Purchased a 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500HD LS Crew Cab a few weeks ago. It now has 74,000 miles on it. I went from a payload of 1400+lbs to 3400+lbs, huge difference there from my 1500. The Crew also has much more legroom for the growing boys. It also has all the candy that my old 1500 WT lacked. I`m still keeping the 1500 WT though. Here`s a few pics:

Nice find. There is nothing like having more truck than you need, than needing more truck than you have. It should serve you well. On a side note, a few of those years had instrument panel problems. Speedometer going out, fuel gauge not reading, or funky readings on other gauges. If you need a replacement, NAPA has the best deal with a lifetime warranty for the instrument set.

Great looking truck Crabman. Should make a big difference in towing. You'll have to leave the flatland and come to the mountains to really shake it down!

I`m planning on doing just that, heading out your way sometime away from these marshy flatlands!
