    Today marks the 4th anniversary of getting my 2015 Chevy Silverado LT Z71 w/ the 5.3 and 4WD. When I bought it, I was trying to hit a price point that gave me the functionality I wanted. So, no leather. No sunroof. No crew cab. All of that was extra money that wasn't going to gain me anything for my uses.

    The main things I was wanting was the 5.3L V8, 4WD, power seats, and navigation. This one covered those bases, plus Bose, all weather mats, and a few other things.

    Here's a picture of it on the lot, before I drove 'er back to work. (I picked 'er up on my lunch break, 35 miles from work. That was a long lunch "hour" that day. :crackup:) She's been good to me, though.

    Here's a link to the original "dog carrier" thread.

    A week or two ago, a friend told me about where I could cross the Brazos River. He told me he had done it once before, but it was "way up" the last time he was out there. I decided to go out there and see if I could make it.

    I decided to NOT give it a try. :uhoh: :crackup:

    Since I was there, I decided to go around and check out the west side... That was even worse. I had to use 4WD to back out of the mud and the muck. I think it was mainly the sand that was the problem, though, because nothing was thrown up onto the truck. :dunno:

    On my way back home, she rolled over 63636 miles.

    No major problems, though. A new starter and battery last fall has been about all I can think of and that's easy to forget... A couple of sets of tires and quite a few oil changes, of course. The only "mod" that comes to mind is taking the front chin spoiler off because it kept catching on things and carrying mud and/or weeds around. :crackup:

    There have been a few bumps along the way and some off-road-pinstriping that happened before the dealer plates were even off of 'er. All in all, reliable and mostly trouble free, though. :thumbs:

    I bet at least one of you thought this was going to be an "I traded the truck off" thread. :rollin: :crackup:
