Dude! You bought that truck less than 2 miles from where I work!

I'm just north of there at 17 and Crooks...

Looks great. You will like the 4.3 it is a real stump puller. Not bad on the gas either. You should get 20 to 22 MPG.

shouldnt he get better than 22 with a V6 and a 5 speed? I'm pretty sure my 5.3 V8 and auto 4 can get 20 in that light of truck.

yes but check the weight of the extended cab. He has just about the lightest truck besides the short box. Mine is the same body weight as his, just a different engine. I dont have actually numbers from my truck though, because I never fill the tank up due to its size.
