New Truck Fever, need a lil help!

I've got new truck fever bad, but I can't decide what color. It's either gonna be dark blue or white. My last 4 trucks have been white so I was kinda wanting a change. But I think the dark blue is too dark and doesn't match the boat very well. Tell me what you think. ThanksName:  07 X2 244.jpg

I like the white better. But if you are tired of it, you could go with the blue and then get a new bote to match.

I know someone looking for an X2.

I just ordered a new truck myself - after 10 years of black trucks, I went with white this time.

Sadly, I couldn't get the 3.54 rear end, I had to go with the 3.73. I hope performance doesn't suffer too much .

If you want to match the boat then white would look better IMHO.

Now Jeff, you know it WILL be a diesel! Wonder if I can find a 1500HD diesel?! Yea, after towing the boat to CSM this year, the question as to diesel or gas was definitely answered. No gas for ME!

Things are fine up here. Air temp actually hit 70+ for the third time since October. Dock/lifts are in, boats aren't (although the Whaler is de-winterized and runs great in the driveway).

As Ric well knows, the 3.54 rear end gear ratio provides superior performance on the GM 1/2 ton trucks, especially relative to acceleration and towing. I only hope I'm not too dissatisfied with the higher gear ratio.
