Well traded in my old 02 today. Served me well. Lots of memories I that truck.

Here are the details 2017 Chevy 3500HD LT 29,000 miles. My first 4x4. [emoticon] Certainly a huge upgrade from 02 with only cruise control and A/C.

I know it will tow a bit better which was part of the goal, but we wanted 4x4 and just to be more comfortable.

Nice upgrade! I want to eventually do the same with my 07 duramax with 47k on it. Be a sad day but I’ll adapt like you. ??

I know it is stupid. I chocked up a little leaving the old truck there. it was like part of the family. Never let me down, just chugged a long. This truck has some big shoes to fill. LOL

I need to get 10 years out this one too.

I should have sold you my old one. I had a lot of love in that.
I over maintained it. It would have been a good run around/Work Truck. Someone will get a nice runner.

I can't believe what 15 years has done truck wise. I mean it still a 6.0 but I can tell it going to just do a better job and it is the quietest vehicle I have ever owned.

I was out your way last week. Camped at Lake Easton. I love it just over the pass.

Thanks everyone. I love it. So quiet as compared to my old 02 W/T. I went back and forth for 2 years and when drove this one I couldn't say no.
