So , today I picked up my "new to me" one owner, 96k Mile, 2006, RWD, Silver Birch Metallic SS. Bought it off the original owners wife (he was elderly and passed away). I have all the service records that he'd kept since new. Man ..... I've wanted one for so long. Really happy to be here , gonna have some questions I'm sure. Not looking to do anything crazy, as it's now my daily. Future mods include a cam, full exhaust, intake and tune , & Lower it slightly. I've stalked this forum off and on for years ... and it's now time to drop in the "my new truck" section ..... 😎 I will now attempt to post a link to a quick pic I took today after a quick wash !

Thanks for reading - Billy

Congrats on the truck Billy - always nice when you can get a vehicle that has been cared for and has all the records to back it up!

Nice score with the '06 in silver birch; I got one for my wife's DD and she loves it.

Really !? When I click it, it takes me directly to it (maybe because it's my acct?) Anyone have any other sites I can use !? Photobucket is a pain ..... (not that everyone hasn't seen a truck like it) just like to get a good pic up !

Side note .... gas mileage is terrible .... and I love it 😊

Congrats on the truck! I called the guy about this one before hurricane Irma came through. He wouldnt budge off the 15k asking price. I found a blue one (which I always wanted) and went with that. I saw the ad on Craigslist for much lower than what I offered him. Glad to see its in the hands of someone who will take care of it

:withstupid:   Imgur is working good for me too.  Photobucket worked great for a lot of years but I guess you get what you pay for.  Can't really blame them for going for the bucks, i guess, but they sure ruined a lot of good threads on discussion pages.
