I didnt see smoke.. all i saw was bright orange flames.... its been about an hour or so now... way up above the communications tower.... we thought it could be slash burning but i just can make sense of why it would be all the way up there... as the road up there is really narrow and shitty on a good summer day... weird

A very good friend of mine just bought an 04, theyre awesome looking inside and out. The interior looks like a luxury car, it would be my first choice for a newer truck.

When the time comes for me to get a newer truck, i'd have trouble saying no to the blue oval, the audiophile stereo system sounds awesome, leather interior is comparable to the lincoln luxury cars, nice big sunroof, tall cargo box sides, and apparantly decent fuel mileage.

Although the new generation silverados have an optional vortec max package with 365hp/375trq, and multiple displacement where it shuts off half the cylinders for fuel economy on the 6L engine, which is one up on the fords for sure.

hopefully this newly revised 07+ version of the 6L has solved that.

lots of the 99+ chevy small blocks all have piston knock when cold, even my 5.3L does. It's a design flaw they created when trying to make power with lots of piston to cylinder wall clearance for efficiency... needless to say they were off by a thou or two. It's a disturbing sound to hear, but apparently does no long term damage to the cylinder walls, mines at 180,000km and never uses a drop of oil.

3rd Time being stuck in the driveway since friday. Funny how it happens concidering we've got a flat driveway. Fuck I'm already starting to hate rwd. I cant park on the road due to all the snow, nor can I park in the yard. I'm really starting to hate parking down the road.

easier said than done. Only had the car on the road for 3 days, between a new trans, clutch anf misc parts, I didnt budget new tires. Unfortunately I'll need low pro 16's... Little harder to find these at the wreckers

in a pinch some Nexxens from Wal Mart should do....though they're most likely not very well suited for the weather we've been having

maybe just be like marshall (prosho) and have a mis-matched set of wheels with cheap winters of whatever size on the rear for now until spring rolls around?

I don't think he's had any problems with traction this year?

It's better to look a little stupid with unmatching wheels, than looking even stupider by having all 4 pony wheels on with bald tires. Especially when you slide it into a pole, or worse another car killing someone. Use a little common sense.

I've got Goodyear 235-50R16 Gsd-2's on there right now. Fountain has Nexxan N2000's on special, bill a tire installed so that seems pretty workable. Not the best looking tire... but as long as they have good reviews I dont see why not. Definitally not a winter, but I'm sure they are better than whats on there.

I'd like a good traction tire, with a high tolerance treadwear rating. Before buying any ole' tire, I'll do a bit of research to see whats best for my driving habits. Even if I just get summer tires, I should be fine untill march as long as I dont do any driving in the snow. Like seriously... the snow's on its way out.
