I'm gonna have to agree with everyone else on this.

Plus the guy Matt knows seems to know what he is doing really well. I would definitely go with him again if I need to do gears again.

They are quick fun turds, like the 5spd tempos.

The little diesel in the new Colorados is not too bad, trucks are rated gor like 7 or 9k towing. Id still buy a year old 1/2t for less money and have more truck. ymwv

Somedays when you really, and mean Really feel low and down in the dumps just start reading about Flat Earthers and their nutty concepts will perk you right back up! But watch out for the Rabbit hole effect...

Re: Important

I bought an 08 ppv Tahoe about a year ago, came from the factory already squatted 2" and has sport-tuned suspension. I slapped on some GM factory chrome 22s, put a hitch on it and it has been awesome. I also upgraded all the crap interior to full leather and carpet with third row. You know me, I'm ready to sell it after owning a year though. There you go Sam, a family rig that will pull a trailer and looks cool too!

Missed out on bidding on one of those at the insurance auction once. Sold for like 300 bucks, running and driving, clear title. Always regretted forgetting to bid on it because it would have been a fun as hell autox car.
