Default I got me a tow rig.

So last night I picked up a 2001 chevy 2500 4x4 with a 6.0. Its a very clean truck and the seller had a clean carfax and all the maint. records. it has true dual exaust and when you get on it the world knows. there are plenty of little upgrades that made me happy and a couple that didnt. All in all I got a good deal.

Looks nice.

I'd personally ditch all the accessories like the visor , racer back , window covers and tail lights. But either way looks like you got a nice truck and probably for a good price.

I was going to ditch everything but the tonneu cover and build a winch bumper, but the general consensus last night at the meat shop was that bitches like my truck the way it is.
