Very nice Brian. :beer: :thumb:

I'll be shopping for something like that about a year from now. I'm babying my old Chevy thru one more year, 1993 Siverado stepside w 190k on it. :hide:

Nice Pugger. Welcome to net boat talk. :thumb:

I got a new tow vehicle that I had not posted yet.
Here is a couple of pics:

Those pics were taken by the car dealer I bought it from. I'm in Ohio. But I bought the truck from a dealer in Texas via ebay.

2003 Chevy 5.3 so far it's been a pretty good truck. Doc that hood on yours sure would look good on mine, nice looking ride. Sure wish pictures came out better though.

This has been our tow rig for the last 6 years. 2011 GMC Yukon with the 6.2. 170k on the clock. Tows our 200LE. Think the boat and trailer come in around 4200 lbs. Pulls good. However it’s time for an updated rig. Thinking about the new Yukon with the Diesel engine.

Well, timely post for me. If you see my post from 09 above. It was my new to me Silverado. Nice truck. Really decked out. Served me well. But this year the engine light came on, had it fixed. Came on again. Had it fixed, different sensor. Came on again. Had it fixed, once again different sensor. Came on again. .... time to trade it in.

I found a nice Toyota Tundra Platinum in Hagerstown Maryland that I liked. 2018 model with 48k on it. And they'd give me 10k for my Silverado. I took them up on that offer. :D
It tows my boat like a breeze. I'll try to get a pic of it and the boat when I tow the boat to get it winterized. Once again, this is a pic that the dealer had posted of the truck. Not one I took.

Been towing with my 2011 GMC Sierra which just turned 70,000 miles. Hoping to get a newer unit if the prices ever come down. Man, they cost as much as a house any more!

I know the feeling Rick. Until just a few months ago I was hanging in there towing my boat with a 2005 Silverado. It did the job okay but I was sure ready for an upgrade and hoping prices would come down. Didn't happen but I did get 10k for the 05 Silverado. I only paid 19k for it in 09. So not bad.

Daily drive and road trip machine... '17 F150 eco boost. This thing is a rocket ship with the twin turbos and with the max tow package is rated for 11K. I'll retire the F250 soon since I only tow the boat about 12 miles from storage to ramp ...

Very impressive. A 1/2 ton that will tow 11k. Wow. Kudo's.
Guessing your boat weighs around 9k. Is that close?
