Alright, so it has been roughly 4 months since i drove my truck home for the first time. I have taken a couple pictures since that first day and thought I'd share them with you guys for S and G's. Hope you guys like the short story of the truck i now call Barney. :mrgreen:

It is a 2008 Silverado Lt 4x4 with 116k miles and im the second owner. Both I and the previous owner drive 50+ miles a day for work so that 116k is mostly highway miles. The technical GM color for it is Dark Cherry Metallic, but most of my friends say its: Purple, Black, Brown, Maroon or Red. And depending on the light it can be all those colors. So here are a few pics that I've taken just to show you hows its looked after 4 month of light survey and field work and a little bit of fun.

Small list of things coming: 33" Goodyear Duratracs, HID headlights, window tints, blacked out bowties, new wheels

That's a nice looking truck, and a great story of the different uses you've had with it!

Thanks for sharing! :grin:

Great looking truck! I saw one that color the other day and mentioned to my wife how I liked that color too. How much rake do you have with the lift you've got? I'd like to do a lift and keep some if not most of the rake.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I chose this color because i have only seen a select few trucks that have the same.

I haven't taken any measurements but there definitely is a rake. Since i sometimes haul stuff i needed to maintain the rake so it didn't sag backwards with a load. I'm sure it helps a little bit with MPG too but if it does i'm sure its barely noticeable. I will take some measurements this weekend once i put my new shoes on. :D

I call shinnanigans on a few of those pictures.....I don't remember seeing any sun around Cleveland any time recently.....not your truck.

Seriously, nice pics, love the flex shot. Get those new wheels on there (says the man that has been holding off on his for nearly a year)!!!! I'm likely have the guys at 4wheelparts in Parma change mine out in the spring.
