06 3500 Auction Score

Greetings all,

Havent been on much since I sold my other trucks, but picked up a truck at auction today that I'm gonna be tinkering with so I thought I'd share a couple pics.

2006 3500, 4wd, 8.1, Allison, Crew cab, utility bed with 98k miles. Seems to run and drive well, been maintained at the NASA base where I work so its pretty solid other than some rocker panel rust that every one of these trucks seems to have. Has typical work truck dents and dings and needs a seat, headliner etc but otherwise in perfect shape for hauling the dogs and kids around.

Plans as of now are to clean it up, change fluids and filters, find a center console and use it for truck stuff around the inlaws farm and towing my atvs around. Eventually I may try to find a fleetside bed for it but thats down on the priority list.

Everybody loves pics so here are a couple of the truck and a couple that make the truck cool to me.

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.
