    My dad bought a new truck today: '06 Chevy 3500 Duramax Dualie 4x4 Crew Cab fully loaded........black..........sexy..........automatic:doah:

    Now, his old truck, he has decided to let me have. Well, I have to pay him some money for it, but it's there waiting for me. It's an '01 Chevy 3500 Dualie 4x4 Extended Cab, fully loaded, with 60K miles on it. It's white with the black leather interior.

    Aight, so what should I do to it to begin with? I know it needs new tires, and all of the maintenance has been done on it.

    What can you suggest tire-wise? It's going to get a sneaky mod somewhere on it. Nothing real big, but something to boost it a little. What would you say to do on it?

    This is the only picture I have of it. As for right now, I know the bed cap is coming off, since I've hated it since he put it on. Why put a bed cap on when you have the inside Line-X'd?

    Let me know what you would do!

    Just leave it alone.
    It's just perfect the way it is.
    You are not going to wheel it so leave it reliable.

    Aight. Sounds good to me. I'll just make cosmetic mods on it then.

    Also, I've been told to run BFG A/T's since I'm up here in the mountains. Should those be ok to run?
