bed shell
rhinolined bed

Engine - Tim Taylor would be hugging this engine.

Re: Early Christmas present to myself from myself

Sounds like a good deal. A friend of mine just traded in his 2500HD crew cab 2wd. It had the 6 liter motor with 4.10 (?) gears and would pull a house (in overdrive).

Re: Early Christmas present to myself from myself

I don't want to hijack this column, but I did just graduate from college in the last 2 weeks, and now it's christmas, and I got a really good paying job that I started last week, so I gave myself a present also. I bought a 2000 toyota celica. It's kinda light on options, but I will soon be getting all the options I could think of, as my dad works at a toyota dealership

Re: Early Christmas present to myself from myself

Yeah, so the weathers supposed to be crappy tonight. Since the GF's primary transportation is a YZF 600, me being the nice guy I am, tell her to just take my new truck. Couple minutes ago she calls and says she clipped a bus on the freeway. She's ok, details to follow.
