Nice.
I thought you had a similar truck as a tow rig?

I did it was a 2001 as well but a 6.0L 5 speed.  I sold it awhile ago mainly because it didn't have AC and used trucks went up so high

I like that one!  That would be a candidate to replace my C20 if something happened to it.

I love it so far.  Still sorting out a few issues but it is so nice.  I stumbled upon a person parting out a 2005 and the stainless steel muffler and tail pipe was in tack.  Snatched it up for $60 and $20 something more for SS band clamps it is quiet as a mouse.  Zero rattles and seems to do decent in gas mileage.  Snagged a solid lid Leer tonneau cover cheap.  Got a gas door, radio antenna and spare tire elevator for under the truck.  I can easily start out in 3rd without slipping the clutch, have it in 6th by 40 mph and set the cruise control running 1300 rpm and it takes any hill without a struggle.  I have yet to tow my car trailer with it but I am sure it will do great.
