Running Diesel in that rig? Is that the new color of the Harley D. or the King Ranch? I can't tell by the pictures.

Thanks for the comments. The truck is the blue Harley Davidson edition with the 6.0 diesel. I am not a Harley bike guy but I felt the truck looked great.

With all of the end of year clearance sales that will be coming up in August, you can probably get a sweet deal. They're not as expensive as you think.

Last August we bought an 04 that actually cost us less than our 99 did because of all the rebates and incentives.

P.S. our 04 Suburban with the hatch has plenty of clearance to open up even with the boat and trailer hooked up.


Suburban all the way. I keep upgrading.....I'm on my 4th, 2005

Did you take the boater's test prior to purchasing. Flush a $100 bill down the toilet. If it bothers you, you aren't ready to own a boat.

I do love those wheels, but they are hot on the thieves list around here, I wouldn't think of it. Same color as mine without the HD getup.

Dad has a '04 with the quadrasteer option. He trailers a 21' Boston Whaler and that rear wheel steering is amazing. It manuevers and backs up like nothing else, and the sway on the highway is eliminated. You'd have to drive it to believe it. (It turns in a tighter circle than my Tahoe) ~!!!

The biggest thinig that steered me away from the quad steer is the durability. I have built 4X4 vehicles, and the rear wheel steering has me concerned about it in the future. Long term I am concerned with. Ever look underneath it and see whats there. gotta think about what could happen if one of those components lets go.

Yeah, makes me a little nervous, but it all looks pretty beefy under there. The electrical is what I am leery of, and it reverts back to straight steering when there is a problem. Its just fun having the bling factor, and being able to manuever a big rig like its a honda.

Plus, Dad usually trades his rigs in before they hit 80,000 miles.
