It's not April, I would hate to see you and that truck not together James! At the end of the day, if you think its time then it might be.

What truck did you end up ordering?
Test drove a 2020 LTZ 2500 SB
I instantly wanted it...
Iíve become a pre Madana lol
All the features are Sweet!
That being said a WT gets you power windows/locks
Backup camera
And Bluetooth which is a lot for a baseline truck
And at 52k for that or the LTZ for 62k
Good luck selling the Limo James
Looking forward to seeing the Limo 2.0

I ordered a 2020 high country cc/lb back at the end of June. Never driven one yet but donít need to. They have so much more to them these days, I was just waiting for a truck that would have the power I want for towing without missing the limo. They are their finally. Already got tires/wheels waiting and soon as the derringer comes out, thatís being ordered

Whatís the old saying about rubbing one out before making rash decisions??? .

Itís flat out going to sit and by time Iím going to even think about playing with it, tires will be old, engine and trans will have a lot of idle time on it from start ups to keep things moving, wiring harnesses will be brittle from outside heat, etc. just not wise and frankly, if itís something thatís going to sit as a play truck, I want something much lighter

Damn, if it took you that long to rub one out i feel bad for your wife
I understand though. I got back n forth between gutting mine and doing lexan but i like hauling the kids around occasionally in it. Constantly jumping it from sitting is getting old though.
Im sure the new truck will fill that void...for awhile

Kids change priorities, at least mine did. I couldn't not have a modded truck though so I built my work truck. Lol. Sadly, the Duramax is the one that sits up now, the dealer wanted to buy it again when I came in for service Thursday bc mileage is so low. Good luck with the sale James, it might go faster than you think, and you might end up like me a letting the new one just sit there...

Well the new will have to wear off first but eventually it will sit like the limo does now and Iíll DD my tracker again. I like whipping that thing around town and then hitting some dirt every so often after work.

I bought it from my dad in 06. My dad ordered it brand new in June of 01 iirc and picked it up in August. I remember the first drive in that thing with him lol. Door sticker is Aug 01 which makes it an 02 (belt setup and other hard parts give that away as well). I have two folders of receipts and stuff for this truck. Itís pretty well documented on any service that we personally didnít do through the years.
