My Father in Law has one that I can use for now, but I will be getting one eventually.

Should be good as a tow vehicle with the 6 speed. Kinda wish I had waited. Couple of us towed out of Michigan to Mid Ohio. I had STi on steel 18' and couple of buddies had EVO and Civic on aluminum. They were running away from me with their 5.3L 6spd trucks while I was struggling with my 5.3L 4spd and they got 3-5mpg better fuel economy.

Yeah I was originally looking for a 6.2L 1500 Sierra but they all had old man interiors. They also need premium fuel, and get substantially worse gas mileage than the 5.3L did. This is my DD too so I think it was a good compromise.

Well I haven't driven my car in a couple weeks since I had surgery. Told my wife she could drive the truck to work so I took my car today.

Decided to do a bunch of hooning, and I didn't lift a head. That goopy stuff is most definitely the water wetter

Proof:




but I need to add some coolant when I get home. I pulled a bunch of it out of the radiator to do my block test.
