Thursday came and went, where's the pictures???
Comfort? I don't know. I find my 92 more comfortable than the 01. Specifically less claustrophobic. And I think the bench seat is more comfortable.

Ya think Nigel's '08 is maybe ugly? Maybe he hadn't seen it yet. That's what happened to Clink....he bought a car on a dealer website for a cheaper price and when it arrived, at night of course, the paint on all the outside trim didn't match the body color...

No Clunk, its quite a beautiful truck...all black, but when the sun hits it, it has a metalflake in it. Interior is grey. Need to reupholster the vinyl lid on the consol, . It has factory chrome wheels, 17"rims and is 10x more comfortable than the first gen, plus the visibility is far superior. The power is squirrly....3:73 gears, quad cab, nice having the extra room, I think ill enjoy it. Had the first gen since 2001. They're fetching $8-10 grand for a clean one around here.

It's ok Nigel, you don't have to post a pic of yer truck....I don't think BRD ever posted a pic of his new truck either. Are you going to have anything stitched on the console lid?
Maybe a flag or a nickname? How about a computer generated image of yer cat or an image of yer favorite tractor. I can on for hours...an image of a local mountain or BRD in his speedo....yuk.....no don't do that. Maybe felt with raised borders fer shootin' craps or playing blackjack
Congrats anyway Nigel

Thanks Smoke, It sure does, except when I lift the hood....its a different world under there compared to the first gen. I hope it plows as good as the first gen.
