    Nice ride.

    Also making my mind think about Colorado, and missing getting out there again this year.

    Congrats and hope it runs a good long time for you. I'm still running a '96 Ranger with over 200k on it. It ain't dead yet! Lol

    Excellent!

    If it was a new guitar, I'd ask, "How does it sound?" But with a new truck, I'll ask, " How does it smell? "

    Great truck, in a great colour.

    Enjoy it!

    How was the factory set up?? Driveable straight out of the box? Did it need a ride height adjustment? ;):D

    Fabulous! Congrats. Sherry and I went to a Jeep dealership yesterday and came away feeling like Chevy might be the way to go....the door fell off our Honda Odyssey last week! I like the 4 door extended cab trucks. Could you get a teenager in the back seat? And a doggie?

    I checked out those new Jeep pickups a few months back. I REALLY liked it.

    That said, I'm a Mopar guy as much as I'm a Gretsch guy! Lol

    Nice truck, but why is the mailbox backward? At first, it looked like it was mounted to the truck! I was like WTH! Now you need a red Fuzz Ray to go with it.

    Rich has probably already got a list of mods he wants to make.

    That's exactly what I thought! I saw the time you posted this and thought, "Wow! They deliver guitars early up there"!;)

    Beautiful color! I had a jazz bass almost that color once.
