Time to trade in the Chevy.

Cause I just hit 50K!

Started with this:

Name:  Picture237.jpg
Views: 0
Size:  79.4 KB

Now I got this:
Name:  Picture157.jpg
Views: 0
Size:  155.8 KB
Name:  Picture152.jpg
Views: 0
Size:  131.9 KB

I sure hope she'll last another 50K. At the rate I'm going, I'm sure it won't take long. 14K in 7 months.....

I'm sure you will get a long life out of that truck.

I went to look at a new Silverado Z71 4wd. I didn't buy it because the payment was a tad too high. So today on the way to work the slave gave out on the Ranger again for the 5th time. Should have traded the POS in already. Maybe this weekend.

im not a fan of the chebys but i will say one thing, they are long winded sum *****es! my buddy has had 2 of them in the last 10 years, both with over 200k on the original motor. both his went through trannys like crazy though. i think hes on his 2nd rebuild on his 2002 im sure it will last you much longer than 100k

I'm not, lol. Just a joke

And I hope it lasts me a little longer than 100K, but we'll see if I can hold on to it for that long. I've noticed I have a wandering eye about vehicles, lol.

I drained my rear diff a week after i got it and put Royal Purple in it. I'll drain the front diff at 100k and flush the trans.. Even not paying for labor cause I'm doin the work, that Tranny flush is going to cost a fortune cause our flush machine takes 16 quarts haha

Same here, man. I love this truck. The only regret I have is not getting a 3/4 ton Duramax with this body style.

Same reason I'm looking at a Chevy. I like being able to change my own plugs and not having to worry if they will break on the way out causing me to have to buy a special Snap-On tool. Also the new F150s look like crap.

Yeah they fixed the spark plug issue in 07. Its not really a huge deal anyway you just gotta follow the TSB while removing them.

Yeah they say they fix a lot of things. I still would like to not worry or do anything special to do simple maintenance. I'm not a fan of the new style 150 anyway. I think they ruined it. They should have kept the previous style.
