After 8 years of nearly trouble free service our Dodge started having serious issues.  With expensive repairs to numerous to mention we decided to trade it off.  I asked myself "when was the last time I needed a 1 ton truck"?   The answer was 5 years ago the last time we towed our Jayco which now stays in Az.  We bought a well equipped Silverado crew cab with the 5.3 gas engine and we really like it.  It's quiet, comfortable, and gets way better mileage than the Dodge.  Right now gas is $0.65 cents a gallon cheaper and that makes me real happy.

great,  we thinking of nice truck too, maybe keep the 2001 for work truck, that basically what it use for now.  Wife doesn't even like to ride in anymore, to noise. me I hard of hearing anyway, pull the hearing aids.  I have a new muffler, hope that helps some. We used to go to the airport as my youngest son only drive automatic, and it the only family automatic.


My wife mention getting a Chevy a while back.

Nice. Glad you have a comfy truck to ride in style... Nice to have a warranty, something I haven’t had for decades. LOL....
