Made a Change

I switched teams! Well, kinda.

I traded my 2015 GMC Canyon for a 2018 Chevy Silverado. After a ton of experimenting with power adders to the V6 in the GMC, and all the issues that created, I was convinced I needed a bigger truck.

My new truck is a 2018 Silverado 1500, Z71 with the 5.3. I am so excited to be back in a V8! The last one I had was in my 1st car, a 73 Nova, that I sold in 1994.

Thanks to Mike for the positive review of his truck. And of course, thanks to David for his constant encouragement to push me to buy a real truck.

You do know that when she says "its not the size, but how you use it" that she is lying, don't you? Because its both.
