Ever since I started a new job with the natural gas co, havent had time to drive wife's equinox, even no time to wash any of our cars, 2 weeks ago i worked 84 hours. That was exhausting.

Anyways just wanted to say hi!

Yep everything is great w family. They misses me. We got a mobile home out where i work, and its called my second home for now, the wife and kids moved in with me. Kayleigh relocated school now shes in 7th grade. Total of 30 kids in her whole 7th grade. Last yr only 34 kids graduated thats how small it is. I been craving for a new truck. Been thinkin of gmc duramax..... Ohh baby.

Sierra ( my 3 yr old ) is doing great. She always make me happy when I get home and hearing her scream daddys hommeeee running to me just makes my day better.

Stacey ( wife ) is doing good, likes to watch my bank account grows at a rapidly pace dohhh means more shopping for her. But whew she hasnt touched it.. YET

Alright. Enough abt me. Blah!

Thanks for the update. I haven't shared much lately but I got some dirt on me to share...


Well if you are in the market to spend $50-60k a Dmax would be awesome!

Preferrably with all the emissions crap I had to take off of my 07 I would recommend a 06-07 (O7 Classic not nbs) You only get less like 15-20 hp... And that gets wasted by the particulate filter on the newer truck..

If you can find a 06-07 it has the 6 speed Tranny with low miles and nice leather. IMO, that would be the way to go!

I love mine... It ran 15.74 bone stock from the factory.. Not any more though...

I would like to get a older model for my business instead of the 05 gasser that I have. I am trying to stay away from 05 or older Duramax because they have a 5 speed tranny and less horse power and torque.

So scratch that after winter new truck. I got a new truck 2.5 weeks ago and loving it. It is a 2005 silverado crew cab short bed 4x4, it do have a 5 speed auto tranny which sucks. Its a duramax finally i own the first diesel and am already addicted to it, the power wise is pretty good. But some thing need to be changed out to get the most out in a stock motor, gm did all the emission crap and cut power to pass the EPA? That sucks. But for the price. I couldnt say no so i grabbed it. Mod will come in near future.

Leather interior, sunroof, pewter color, 75000 miles. The price is 20,000 for this.
