Well, after weeks of this forum asking me for my password, and my being unable to remember the darn thing, I kept on til I figured it out. (it never asked me for my password before, so I forgot).

Anyway, I've been missing being able to post here and wanted to let ya'll know we finally got a big ole honkin' new truck! Never more will we have to feel like the tail waggin' the dog! (well, we didn't really feel that bad about it...just say we feel better now...the 2500 HD was great).

Took advantage of the new price incentives and bought this beautiful truck. (see pic) The pic is minus the new steps, toolbox, bug flector, rain guard, and mud flaps we just added, but she's purdy even plain, isn't she?

Can't wait to hitch up and hit the road!

Rhonda,

VERY nice truck (for a Chevy) . Hey I know how you feel, I went out and did the same, traded in the old F350 for a Brand new F350 with the tow boss addition. Sure is nice having a good solid truck under you. I'm glad you went up in size for that Raptor. Now you guys should feel much safer and you are...

Congrats on the new truck....

Clark

Rhonda, Wow that will make for one beautiful rig going down the road. Only thing I don't like about mine is the pass side tow mirror. You could sneak a whole football team up on that side of the rig. A blind spot mirror and i was back in business. Congrats and kudos for picking the right brand!

Rhonda:

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

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.

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

Thanks!

Hmmm....my husband had not mentioned a problem with the mirrow like that. He's just loving how they are powered to go in and out, lol! But then again, we haven't towed yet.
