Title: Upgraded
Post by: jasonrebecca on July 25, 2017, 01:45:13 pm
This last trip to Montana was the final ride for the 6.0. Small fuel tank made going over 5 passes no fun. Upgraded to a 3.5 EcoBoost with 36 gallon tank!

Congrats you'll really enjoy the Ecoboost.

Sweet. That's a big tank for a short bed. Really cool they did that and a bigger fuel cell is easily a great reason to upgrade. I've used less reason than that. ;-)

Looks beautiful Clarke and I bet she doesn't have any idea what kinda of awesome life is ahead of her. I'm sure the old one sold or are they getting to spend some time together?

I have heard upgrading is so much fun and black is the only color to have.

Nit sure what I'm going to do .....

Tinted windows done
B&W platform in today
Retrax Pro MX on order

Needs some flaps in back ;)

Needs auxillary tank and maybe some swing out tool boxes (as I need some tool storage)

Eventually maybe some more aggressive tires ..... Not sure if when....and/or wheels ....

Looks good as it is and rides awesome .....

Is it an upgrade if it's still a Chevy? 

Seriously, congrats.  That should do a nice job towing that trailer of yours!

My 2005 has a plastic piece over the top of the bumper that is body cover and I just had it repainted last year because of road debris. It was beat to hell. I would definitely put some 3M over it especially as much as it appears he takes care of his stuff. My Ram Limited comes standard with body color bumpers and but I would not have bought it without the chrome package.

That's a real sexy truck.. even if it is a chebby   ;D   Was wondering how she lines up with the new Open Range, since you lifted that; will you need to modify the suspension and or tires? Or should I even bother asking  :rotfl:  and then there's the whole train horn thing..  :shrug: :evillaugh: :yikes:

Clarkely- How guess when they said go Big or go home, you decided on the BIG side.

Truck looks nice. Good luck with it.

Nicely done!  I miss my GM product a bit (like when I had to do the dreaded T05 recall on my Ram this week), but love my new ride.

I'm assuming that's a high country?  If so, how do you get all 6 of you in there or has that ship sailed?

The only time Clarke goes home is AFTER he has gone BIG.

I must say that is an impressive looking driveway my friend.

let me know what you learn about the ceramic coating. I have been thinking about it.

Post by: clarkely on October 20, 2017, 02:53:46 pm
Local shop has 3 levels ....

Copy and paste from email

There are three levels of Opti-Coat protection each with increasing warranty and price.  All of them receive the exterior detail plus decontamination wash, minor paint correction, clay bar, Opti-Coat polish and prep, we also coat the outside wheel faces as possible on the pro and pro-plus:

 

Opti-Gloss; 2-3 year protection recommended re-application after that time, VERY glossy, ceramic protection and hydrophobic properties $399Opti-Coat Pro; 5-year warranty, NO re-application, one coat of the pro resin, outstanding hydrophobic properties plus 30% gloss enhancement, and paint warranty $899Opti-Coat Pro-Plus; 7-year warranty, TWO layers of ceramic, the 2nd being the pro-plus resin, outstanding hydrophobic properties plus 30+% gloss enhancement, and paint warranty $1299

Yes it is and although I'm biased, it's one smooth engine. I can't tell if it's running (and of course sometimes at lights it isn't with the stop-start)
