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>

Mike, I think it's Chevy that has the flair. They just gave us a great, blank slate to color on. LOL

Thanks folks for the compliments on our graphics, we were a little leary at first as to how the truck would look standing alone, but it still looks great.

Rhonda, it was a local company named Image-1. They do all sorts of vinyl graphics, including whole vehicle wraps. You can probably find a sign company who works with vinyl or a vinyl graphics company near you, take or e-mail them a good profile of your Raptor and they'll design the graphics for you.

Sheri

Tom: Haven't you been reading all the articles about why GM has had ranchy sales and almost gone ti[pp]s up? It's because they haven't upped their offering for quite some time! That's why Rhonda's truck looks like yours buddy! No ticky, no laundry! No variety, no 'spice of life'! (Yeap...just had to do it)!

Well, what I've always heard is; when you have a good thing, stick with it! Chevy has the package, now they just refine it here and there, unlike Ford, that just scraps the entire engine and builds another to work the bugs out of.

Well...what can I say? The sales numbers before the Employee thing say 'ixnay' to THAT theory...GM had to stoop down to a red lite lady's lap to give 'em away, and the first one to start the orggie has to lay there and TAKE IT!!

As a Chevy owner, I'd be (and am as a Ford owner) a little perturbed that they just devalued my ride like they did (yes...my Ford. Fortunately, I got a darn good deal up front so alot of that deal cushioned MY blow).

Rhonda!

Right on Rhonda. The boys are getting rowdy. If my third grade teacher, Sister Veronica,of the Domican Order, were here she would give them a good pinch of the ear lobe. Your truck is more than pretty, it's 'special'.

Well we all have our favorites and reasons why.....

Rhonda yalls rig looks SWEET!

I have owned trucks from all three.

Really not "Brand loyal" as some say... I just look at what I think would work for me at the time....

My "Little Red truck" is a "early 99" built in 98. It has 104,000 trouble free miles on it and was modified with less than 5,000 on the clock. Needless to say I have been VERY happy with my choice.

What will the next one be?? Who knows......

It could be any one of them. (Ford, Chevy or Dodge)

I still think the Cummins is the better engine. But I don't like the rest of the truck. And Chevy left a BAD taste in my mouth from the 83 6.2L dooley I had. But, when Mo-Jack was down here with his Duramax, I drove it some and liked it.

But whatever it turns out to be, I will give my friends (All of yall here) some good natured jabbing anyway.

Don, It'f funny, my truck that I bought last week is titled as a '97 but looking for running boards the suppliers say I have a '98. The vin says it was built 11/97. Go figure.

I agree Rhonda, I like your comment about it being sexy AND, I have to agree with Don, I like to think I'm not brand specific. I want the best truck out there for the money. I drove a Dodge before this one and who know when its time to trade although I have to admit, I haven't owned a Ford since I was 20 and thats a long, long time ago.

Rhonda...I DO think it's a pretty truck...anything new is purdy, and got my vote. (Ok...I'll digress...Tom's not new, but he's still got my vote!).
