When Trevor gets bored of retracts and air lines and all that Jet stuff, and starts to miss the monokote fumes, he is going to do the base scheme covering for me and i will add the details of the scheme.

If you look at the scheme without the tessellation or "fish scales", its a pretty simple base. I planning to cut the "scales" in monokote using Scott's vinyl cutter methods.
LOL!! In a little over my head on the retracts and air lines!! But excited to get at this project sometime in the spring!! Really excited to see this thing fly!! If it's anything like the 35% baby brother, it'll be awesome!

Wow... that's actually pretty awesome. 16588km and only it's first recall! GM is definitely upping their game, LOL!

All joking aside, those are sharp looking trucks. And I here the Chevy's have a really comfortable ride.

Jack... would it compare though in pulling and fuel mileage to your past F350 KingRanch?

It's a totally different truck than the KingRanch. The Chevy is 4 years newer, it pulls harder and has a much much better engine brake. Handling is better as well. Ride is subjective but seems a bit smoother.

Mileage is about equal in my trade, but I tried it once for 800 strictly hiway kms and it was a bit better.

Now compare it to a 15 Ford powerwise and the Ford will kick it's butt. For interior comfort?? Ford wins hands down, Chevy still hasn't caught on how to build a comfortable seat.

There are so many plusses and minuses for both, yet they're both great trucks.

Junk!! I'm sorry all north American vehicles are junk!! In north America our manufacturing is all based off time not quality. The more you pump out the more money.

Nice Fishing Mister!!

Until you buy a new Ram you are just spinning your wheels and blowing smoke anyway.
