hey y'all,

i have been looking at the new crew cab z71 silverados for a couple of months and have been hesitating cause i couldn't make up my mind on which model to go with. well, i am glad i did because a buddy of mine called the other day and i believe i have found a deal just too good to pass up. it's an 03 z71 silverado quad cab loaded down with only 14k miles on it. after a bit of research on it and a clean bill of health from a local dealer, i absolutely stole this truck so i had to buy it. i am picking it up this weekend and will post up some pics then. i believe hunter (my chocolate lab) is gonna like that rhino lining under his paws!!!

i just can't seem to stay away from that bowtie... :thumbsup:

The other day a buddie called me up and said, " Hey man, my new chevy Z71 offroad just fell into the lake, think you could give me a lift home? My reply was then, " how'd it sink"? After a few seconds he replyed, "like a rock".... LOL

That really didn't happen, I just had to put that in there cuse the post title reminded me of that joke... :toofunny:

honk, i assume you are referring to the front end of the truck (body style). i believe they came out with that beefy body style in late '99 and only made it through '01. this one is pretty much the same as the '05s. it's a tigher line down the hood. it took me awhile to get used to the new body style but it has really grown on me.

i picked up the truck on saturday. unfortunately it was raining, and has been the last 3 days here for the most part, so i only got a couple of quick pics of it. here they are...i'll clean her up and post some good pics when the weather allows.

Nice. I love the lines on that truck. You even got a lab with it. I always like the way the front ends looked.

i am thoroughly enjoying it ARK. i took it down in the swamp last night scouting around for deer. i definitely need to put a little more aggressive tires on it. it slid around pretty bad but i didn't get stuck! i was impressed with that locking differential. it kicks in nicely and feels very solid. i'll post some more pics when i am not swampped like i have been the last few days.


thanks to everyone for the compliments!
