Got a new truck - GMC K2500HD, w/6.0l engine. Mated to a 8.5' Fischer Vee and a 8' AirFlo sander. I'll post a pic of the plow and salter attached when I have a chance.

Also got a new '04 Dodge, I'll try to post a pic of it in the Dodge forum. Nice to run NEW after 10yrs of OLD trucks.

Thats sweet!!!! If i had a new truck, it'd look like that!!! I do like them GMC's. prefer the nose of the GMC's than the Chevy's.

Tomato - I specifically went Sierra instead of Silverado because I also like the GMC looks better. I custom ordered the truck so it's set up exactly the way I want. Should plow nicely, just got Timbrens front and rear and the plow's all ready to go, Rhino liner is next, then AirFlo, then rust sprayed, then Plow Time!

Congrats on the purchase of the two new trucks! Hopefully you get a good winter, so they too become old trucks :grinz

Good luck with them! Sharp lettering too, very professional-looking.

Briggs & Stratton InTech (sp?) 9.0. I wanted Honda, but my dealer (Outdoor Supplies in Stoney Creek) didn't have any with Hondas. Stainless steel for $5900 installed was pretty good though, I thought.

I like the GMC front end they killed the chevy when they put that advalance fron on it.The inside is nice on the chevy but that is it too bad they don't go back to the 01-02 front

It's nice to have new, good luck with it:D I'm sorry but I just don't like the look of the new Chey or GMC for that matter. I do like the new Ford F150 - The wife want's an SUV trying to talk her into getting a new F150 double door for HERSELF ;)

How come you got one Chevy and one Dodge? :burnout

Very nice GMC you got there. I cant wait to see pics of it with the Fisher plow attached. How long did it take to receive the truck from when you placed the order until you got the phone call saying it was in? Mike :)

I leased through a Landscape Ontario affiliated leasing company in order to get the GMC + Fischer + Airflo. A friend of mine (also my equipment service guy) has a cousin that works for Dodge so I took advantage of the "friends and family" discount. Saved around $5,000.00. Chrysler leasing doesn't lease plows and salters though, so that's why I went through the Landscape Ontario lease for the first truck.

I went GMC because I like GM's and previously owned three of them. I got my truck 4wks. after placing the order.

They told me to expect 6-8wks. I ordered in September and just beat the rush of other plow guys looking to get their trucks ordered.

Nice trucks cutntrim. Do you run the dodge as a personal truck? Also wondering why you went wiht two differnt manufacturers at the same time? Both great looking rigs and I really like the chevy gun metal grey.
