    No not this one, I switched to Med Grey leather. The dark charcole was nice too, it is dark though. After looking at a few I changed. I still like both.

    Believe it or not, that 1 foot difference is the difference between me fitting my pickup in my garage and.. not! I have a ext cab long bed, and my garage is 21 ft.

    F'in sweet, I'm jealous.

    I would love to have a D/A equipped rig (maybe someday). My buddy has an 04 CC longbed D/A equipped, and with the trailer hitch in measures at 22' 4". His garage is 24' deep (outside wall to outside wall) and he just fits in (he can't walk around his truck once it's in).

    He tows a 24' camper and says it's 20 times better than his old 90something extracab gasser. He said the power is amazing and it's much steadier going down the road.


    By the way, did I mention I was jealous /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Anyway, congratulations.

    Swamp Lake Route, Mirror Lake, Coyotee Lake, Strawberry Lake, Dusey Ershim, Brewer....... and a few I cant remember off the top of my head. If you guys go let me know, Swamp is a fun trail and a great weekend fishing trip.

    Mirror Lake trail last June:
