2016 Silverado, I striped it myself.



When I got this truck, I leased it (6/16) because I couldn't afford the high payment ($235 vs. $580). The lease is up now (6/19) and I decided to buy it out. It gets around 20 mpg, has only 16k on the clock and is only costing me about a $100 more a month plus they thru in a "9" year warranty. Thank god, everything I looked at around here has over 125k on the odos and a lot are really beat. I don't want to spend my retirement wrenching on 1 car every other day, I gots ridin' to do!

I have 2 trucks. My '94 GMC k1500 is my favorite. It used to be a Mendocino County Sheriffs truck and probably hauled a millions lbs. of pot out of the mountains.



My big GMC is an '11 Denali 3500 dually I pull our 5th wheel with.
