About “Silvy”

This is my truck, a 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. Its a Crewcab 4wd with the gas 6.0L. I previously had a 2001 Ford F150 Supercrew that was very special to me, but it was stolen and totaled in April 2007. I got this truck for a good deal and took it. I'm pretty happy with it. Only problem its given me so far was the power steering pump went, but thats what warrantys are good for haha.


As for upgrades, I have done..
