Hey there! I'm gonna echo Clark's comment: "Very nice truck for a CHEVY!!"

Like him, we've also got a new truck...05 F350 King Ranch PSD Dually...it sure makes things alot easier with these larger rigs!

If you haven't noticed already, we're trying to get Mikey to hop off that fence and git him one too!! In fact, it's time for an update from him!

Congrats Rhonda!

Sean </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Thank you Sean! And congrats on your new truck as well!

Hey Rhonda,

Nice truck!

I've been thinking about switching to a Chevy on my next one, heard that Alison tranny is real nice.

If you're looking for a test run, hook it up to that TH and join us at the Appalachian Camper's summer rally next weekend. So far there's 10 rigs signed up to go, we'll have a great time.

Hope to see y'all there. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Oh wow, that sounds like a great time! I'm afraid we can't get away in August. Oldest daughter is getting married the end of August so you know what I'm busy doing.

If ya'll do it again next year, we'd love to go!

My husband loves the D/A. He love the whole truck and so do I, lol!

Rhonda,
you guys have built yourself a wonderful combo-rig !
I love to hear more about it.

And look at the graphics that Don and Sheri (GoldenWingers) have put on their truck !

You Chevy folk seem to have a flair !!

Mike </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Thanks Mike! I know, look at those graphics Goldenwinger has. That is really cool.

More about our truck? Well, one other thing that we really love is the XM Radio that came with it. I've had it on my car for 2 years now, but my husband only had regular radio on his 2003 2500HD. He has to drive a lot on his job so this helps him pass the time. Also, it has nice leather seats. We've never had a crew cab before so we really love the fact that the back doors can open without the front doors being open first.

My husband (Allyn) came home last night and installed the hitch in our new truck by himself. All the extras that have been done to it, he did since he got it 2 weeks ago. (hitch, bedliner, pin striping, tool box installation, steps, bug flector, rain guards) he's good at that kind of thing and he loves doing it. He came home with a pamphlet about chrome wheels (unfortunately the dually comes with painted wheels) so I feel our wallet turning over again, lol.

I get a rush every time I look at that truck. I think it's sexy....is that a bad thing???

Thanks, but I think you're seeing Goldenwingers truck with the matching graphics. Thanks anyway though.

Update on my reply to your post: My husband fixed that blind spot problem (he just told me reading the posts) by putting some small blind spot mirrors on it (concave or convex?). Anyway, problem solved! Made a world of difference. Before doing that change, he could hardly see what was coming behind him on either side.

Here's the mirror we bought to see better. Allyn demonstrated how horrible it was to see anything coming from behind to beside you with the regular mirrors and how much of an improvement these other mirrors are. Wow, what a difference! Are yours like these?
