i'm at work right now....so you'll have to wait until i get home

it is a very nice truck but in comparison...
my old truck was a hot rod....quick, loud, eye catching, stiff suspension, turned you on just from starting it

this truck is a Cadillac ......smooth, quiet, blends in, grandpa truck, turns you off just looking at it
