    Here's a little advise....Dont go worrying about what others think of you. Do what's right and dont look back......

    Normally I'm real quiet and don't say much...but sometimes one of these posts will get me thinking. If it helps to rationalize the new burb, think of it like this...

    Chevy trucks have a life of their own. They will take you more places safer and show you more wonders than you can only dream of, but in return they need a lot of TLC. You went and spent a lot of time and put a lot of heart and soul into building up your Jimmy. The owner of the Burb did the same thing. Now, because of your circumstances, its your turn to take care of the Burb. Over time you will put a lot of heart an soul into taking care of her, and making her better. You should feel more honored than anything else that she chose you for this. Take good care of her. :)

    Is this sub really exactly the way you want it? I doubt it. If you are anything like the rest of us you can't leave anything alone for to long. I bet you will find plenty of things to change to make it your own.

    If I had it to do all over again, I'd buy someone's built up rig and go from there. It costs about 1/4 of what it costs to build your own.

    Not to be a dick in your time of sorrow, but any chance it had rear lift springs that are salvagable?

    Oh, and the burb thing isn't the end of the world. You spent a lot of time on the other truck and in an instant someone threw it away, essentially you're just getting a replacement that has as much time in it as your original truck did.

    Dood. I feel the same way a lot of times. Which is why i buy a lot of chevy vehicles that just need a good home.
