    Ive been in a regular cab GMC 4wd for about 10.5 years now. It was a good truck .. not much room or bells & whistles. But it served the purpose of a dependable ride and got me through those years of also buying my daughter a vehicle, college... and finally getting her married off last year.

    So... as my wife said it’s your turn to buy a nice vehicle. Which I’ve been looking at trucks for 6-7 months now and found this one last weekend. It was loaded up to the hilt with features, color I liked .. so I pulled the trigger on it yesterday.

    2018 GMC Sierra 1500 -SLT - Z71 in Stone Blue Metalic.

    Luv IT!! Wish the pictures were "scratch and sniff"!! :)

    Just noticed the little steps in the rear bumper, maybe that's been around for years but it's the first time I remember seeing it, GOOD IDEA!

    Thanks ....appreciate the comments.

    My old truck was a nice truck....but it was the work truck series.... manual windows & locks...no cruise.

    Basically had air and a radio.... honestly wasn't that bad though... just lacked room in the cab for guns, bows & hunting gear in general especially if someone was going with you. So....everything had to be cased or bagged ....and tied into the bed.

    This truck... going to take me awhile to get use to all the "stuff".

    Drove it this morning and I got more buttons than I know what to do with...lol.

    Which... in the trade with the dealer....I worked in a Roll-in-Lock ...retractable bed cover for it.... as I've always thought they were pretty neat as their a vinyl clad aluminum on a weather proof track that you can just slide the cover open or closed. https://rollnlock.com/#filter/2018/GMC/Sierra 1500/69.3

    Got an appointment at 10am tomorrow to have the dealer install it.
