    I have been waiting 3 years but It is finnaly going to happen. I get my 2005 Silver DC 4x4 v6 auto SR5. Its has 45k on it with a pair of brand new tires on the back but needs a couple more in the front. I think I am going to put those on right after I pick up my silver dream machine. Any thoughts on first things to do in my truck? First things to test, or first functions I should check out. Man I hope I get some sleep tonight. I will probably be looking at the clock all night wondering if its time to get up and get it yet.:D

    I know...my wife and I have a beach trip planned this weekend, when I ask her what she would like to experience in the truck I might end up in the back of a police car. People are every where watching everything.;)

    First thing you should do is drive the bitch like you stole her. Switch the back tires to the front and the front tires to the back. If you got the LSD, hold a burnout for as long as you can, then get the new tires.

    Change out the oil, put some synthetic in her. I would do that second though.

    I'm getting pretty nervous. I called the guy I am buying the truck from yesterday to figure out what time and where he wanted to meet. HE NEVER CALLED ME BACK!!!. I called him twice but only left one voicemail. I'll give him till noon and then try and call him again. I hope nothing happened to him, he is a little older and suffers from Cerebal Palsy. It will all work out right?:confused:

    I did read it. Sorry to hear that Dutch. Somebody took a knee to the Neon I am selling. I pulled it out with a suction dent puller. I had a hit and run happen to a honda I had once too. Doesn't uninsured coverage take care of that?

    Might want to start with an oil change/air filter, start off on the right foot. Give a good once over.

    It's mine all mine!!! Man I have driven it 10 miles but already in love. The only thing I don't get yet is when I stop and put it in 4 low it does this weird beeping thing. Did I do something wrong or is this what it does the whole time you are in 4?

    naw man, you got to be at a complete stop to go to 4 low, and you have to go to 4lo after you've been in 4hi. I don't think you can go straight from 2hi to 4 lo.
