So after 21 faithful years, the truck is now gone. Sold it within just a few weeks. It just no longer could keep up with the needs of the family. Ended up not being as tough to let go as I thought it would be...especially since I really never had any intentions to sell it. But I found a 2000 suburban that just fit us much better, along with I've been wanting a Suburban for a long time anyway.
She's coming along. Just need a new motor and trans.
