New tow vehicle

Decided it was time for a new truck and found a great deal on a new 2013 that was 1200 miles away. Almost exactly what I wanted and at least $12k less than ordering a new 2015. So, for 2 days time and $500 for airfare/fuel it is now parked in the garage. Silverado LT 3500HD CCSB SRW Duramax/Allison. Super quiet. Can't wait to try out the exhaust brake and IBC. Guess I'll leave the Jordan controller in the '03 when I sell it.

That's a nice truck Larry. You have probably already appreciated the changes that have come about since your old truck was new.
Like Keith mentioned, the EB is great.
Enjoy.

Congrats, Larry. Keeping a truck for 10+ years is unusual these days.

And you guys with the Rams, what made you decide on them? Especially, Coastn, why are you leaving Toyota?

Congrats Larry I dont think there are many differences between 2013 and 2015. That 12K will buy a lot of Diesel fuel. Best of luck.
