I think she's still looking pretty good :)

.... for an 11 year old truck. I bought it new for a steal of a price ($31K window sticker, I got it for $23K) I did a bunch of stuff to it right in the first few months I owned it ($5,500 worth) but it was mostly stuff that does not stand out. Magnaflow true dual exhaust, super top end shocks, bed cover, etc, etc... then killed the chrome.... which I probably would have done anyway, but especially with my camo kick panels, I think chrome would look terrible. The stereo was aside from the $5,500, and it was awesome then, but has sort of evolved ever since. Probably not quite as loud now, but has never sounded more balanced, and full. Traded 5% loudness, for 90% better sound.

Anyway, the styling of my truck has been pretty polarizing. I've had a good number of guys come up to me (often hunters, or fishermen, or red necks lol ...who just flip out over it, like, wow ! I've never seen a truck styled like this ! Love it ! ...but have had plenty of guys in their white trucks, covered in chrome just kind of look at it crosseyed, like, "but wait, wheres the flash" lol

Not so much as a single door ding

Oh wait... this is not a new photo, but I think its pretty cool... now to find it...

PS, Even when I bought this truck, I always thought the GMC's and Chevy's looked better (I just got such a good deal, I had to go with the Ford)... And I continued to feel this way all the way until the last couple years. But IMPO, the brand new Chevy's have gotten kind of weird, while the new Fords look SO freaking tough and awesome !  My dream truck is a 2020 Ford Raptor.

But I do love trucks of all brands, and if somebody is handing them out, I'll take one right now, and worry about the brand later
