    After much thought, accessing my wants, needs, practicality, and reliability, I decided to buy a Silverado. The f150 was tempting, but I keep hearing the ecoboost just doesn't last. Plus, ford's are expensive for minor options. I didn't even consider Fiat (dodge) because I just personally cannot stand their trucks. I ended up picking up last night a 2017 Silverado Ltz Z71 crew cab, short bed, midnight edition. I'm in love with this truck. Came with the aftermarket exhaust option too. Let's my ecotec v8 rumble some. Super excited to owning my new truck. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Nice looking truck and welcome to the forums.

    BTW, ecotec's are 4 cylinder's.

    To my understanding for 2014 they went from a 5.3 vortec and changed some stuff around and now it's called the ecotech. If I am wrong, by all means let me know. I am newer to Chevy.

    Those midnight editions are growing on me as I see more of them and your tires are as shiny as your paint.

    Welcome! We have many options for keeping your tires shiny, some that last for up to a week.
