....sooo. i got my truck last night.

i got it last night. today i had the day off and was flaunting it to friends and family. it got great reviews and i love it. it's been mostly city driving. i burned a 1/4 tank just zipping around the city. i'll get some pics up when i can. i'm rally glad i went with vista blue. my plans include a line-x bed and a tonneau cover. i can't wait to try out the 4wd. now that i have it, i can't wait to drive it on trips. if there's snow next week, i'm going boarding with a buddy.

man i'm just so hyped right now!!!!!! first new truck feeling!!!!

i didn't want the 4.10s. it would make my rpms higher then i wanted. i do mostly city driving and i felt that would use too much gas. (i know 4L like to drink also) i don't mind the 3.73s and i have no plans to do the stoplight racing in my truck. i'm happy with it.

well then i'm wrong, however, it's still what i wanted to go with. as far as pulling out and accelerating, you make it sound like i'm stoplight racing. my stoplight racing days are over. i'm 28. i wanted a reliable vehicle. this is it. if i wanted to win stoplight races or any races, i'd have bought a mustang or a fusion and modded the **** out of it.
