PostSubject: My LS swap   Sun Aug 21, 2016 8:24 am

So my 14 reg cab short bed 2wd v6 was not cutting the mustard. No room in the cab, and I never used the bed. Literally not a scratch in it. And the older it got, the more anal I was about preserving the condition of the bed. And that is not the way to be with a truck. So I traded it for a fully loaded 14 LTZ Z71 with a 5.3 in my favorite color. While my old truck had low milage. Just 14,000 in two years, I got a deal on this truck because it had just under 50k in two years. The funny coincidence was they both arrived at the dealership on the same truck when new. But they are night and day.

Like the upgrade Bill. I've kind of thought that might be the answer for us.

Is that a "double door" or "crew cab"? Two or Four wheel drive?

Hope to see you & Phyllis at the Roundup.

I can see a 4wd switch (round) on the left just above the headlight switch. Looks like an extended cab... my rear doors are bigger than that.

Thanks guys
Tom it is called a double cab. The back door is smaller than the conventional crew cab door, but still very accessible. The back seat folds up out of the way against the back wall of the cab. Yes it is 4WD. It also has AWD. This particular truck has every option except max trailer towing package that allows towing around 11,000lbs. This has the standard tow package the can handle 9500lbs I think. It was way more truck than we were expecting to buy, but the price was right.

Here it is after the dealer put on new rubber for us at no cost after the purchase.




Oh, and we had this for 9 days, but I hated it, so it went back. It's a jeep thing. I did not understand.

No. We have the truck. I went to trade the silver truck in for another truck, but got side tracked by the jeep (Kid with ADHD who sees something shiny) After 9 days with it, I traded the jeep in on the truck I should have bought in the first place.

Hated the jeep, Love the truck.

I got more vibration from my other truck around 70. Had the tires balanced 5 times, and rotated to stop it. One of the resons I got rid of it. This truck is smooth. I think. I have not had it up that fast..... Yet.
