Lets say you keep the LBZ you just bought. With an Ex-cab, you will absolutely begin to HATE life if/when you have children. Trying to get to a carseat when parked in a parking space is hell. You are trapped in between the doors, and its a complete PITA.

A crewcab truck solves this problem without adding a lot of other problems. You will also score points with friends who sit in the back, both with ease of accessability and legroom.
I like my solution better.

But not having a truck payment makes that decision a bit easier!

"Zach's Personal Blog" might have worked too!

ITS PERFECT. hey I donít have social media or any of that stuff and you guys are kinda like family to me cause my truck is kinda my life right now so... I know some other build threads have personal stuff in them too so I might as well vent sometimes.

But back to trucks, my buddy is trying to get a loan for my truck today and Saturday Iím headed to look at the lmm. Havenít found much better deals anywhere so guess this is what Iím looking at. Who knows if I can keep it in my pants maybe in a few years if some job options pan out Iíll have a DD build thread and a stubby race truck build.

So to hear that about your marriage man. I never made it that far so I can’t imagine how hard it can be.

Looked at a few trucks today. The lmm was nice but had a nasty shimmy just like my lbz. And I don’t wanna pay 21 grand for a truck. Plus the guy was kinda a douche. Looked at a pretty nice 06 but had a lift kit and that’s not my thing. Currently looking at flying out of state and getting an extremely nice lbz. For a pretty sweet price.

Wait a sec though!
You said you always wanted a nnbs. I'd suggest getting one before you go ahead getting a lbz again. You'll never be happy with the lbz!

I like the look of the nnbs, but after driving it today I hate how the interior is set up. Itís like every control is a LOW as they could put it. The Hvac controls are literally inches above the cup holder. Plus looking at those wheel wells, I donít feel like doing that much hacking to get a stance. The cat eye lbz has grown on me for sure. Always had a special place in my heart for the classic body style as I grew up around my dads 99 silverado. Toyed around with the idea of an 06 Cummins too, but I drive too much to deal with riding in a log wagon constantly lol
