Hello everyone. I am new here...of course. I just purchased a 2008 Chevy 2500HD last night. This is the second diesel in my corral. I am in love with this truck already. In fact she is at the shop getting a 6" Tough Country lift and 35" tires as we speak. MAN, I can't wait.

Thanks for all the warm welcomes! I live in Mountain Home. Here is a pic of how she looked last night. Absolutely love the color!

I know right!! It has been fairly unmolested. Odometer reads a mere 42,800! It has, apparently, a 5" DPF back exhaust (still need to check to make sure) and a hideaway goose neck hitch in the bed. Other than that she was stock. I can't wait until I get her back with the lift and rims.

Welcome to DF. Going to look sweet with a lift and new rims/tires. Post up some pics when you get it back.

If I can ever be of assistance, don't hesitate to ask.

Take care,
Thanks, I will keep that in mind. I can tell already that this forum will be a HUGE help, just like the Land Cruiser site i frequent.

Welcome to the forum...Didn't take you long to start the mods
I suppose it didn't. First thing we didn't like about the truck was the small tires. This is a big truck...big trucks deserve big tires. The wife says "the tires are too small" and I say OK, let's fix it then. Factory height doesn't allow 33"s without some sort of lift and I wasn't going to do the torsion bar crank or leveling kit with the torsion keys due to the rough ride. So the lift idea was born. Truthfully, it was what I wanted anyway. Plus it didn't hurt we had REALLY good equity on our trade-in and we got what I feel was one helluva good deal on the truck. Hopefully she will be done today!
