Talking New owner

Well 2 years later, here I am finally with a diesel. I couldn't handle the fuel economy of my V10, and wondering when it will spit a spark plug. I needed a truck that could handle being on the road for hundreds of miles at a time. It is mainly my tow rig. I picked up a nice 02 CC, SB Lariat and traded in my 01 V10. The new truck has 123k on it, and my 01 had 84k. I already love the diesel, it just drives different. In a weird way it is quieter than my V10. I have a list of mods I want to do already. Looking at shocks and rear air bags first. As some say I have gone to the darkside... I like it already..

This is great, most don't understand. What do you want to know? We can help you spend your money. I started to say, I can out pull and race most V-10s, but you know the drill.

Welcome to the wild side.
