Seriously, I don't have a passion for that debate since GM became Government Motors. My next truck will very likely be a F150 or a Toyota. My daily right now is a 2002 Toyota Highlander since some kid t-boned my Bonneville a couple years ago. Also, a 1986 Suburban 3/4 T. for serious stuff, and a few toys.

'05 F350 Powerstroke Amarillo package


Had this one forever and probably will be buried in it. Started out as an '84 F150, straight six, four speed, and 30" tires on it. Now sports a warmed up 460, C6 auto with low ratio first gear kit, double transfer cases (NP203/205), Dana 60 front axle w/ ARB air locker, Dana 70 rear w/ Detroit Locker, 4.88 gears, 40" Super Swamper Boggers on Weld Racing wheels, hydraulic ram assist steering, and probably a whole bunch more stuff I can't remember.


Gas mileage getter. OK and it's fun too. '04 Kawasaki Z1000, Muzzy pipe, Power Commander, K&N filter.


And the dune rig, '06 Raptor 700R

That's what I call a nice, understated, non-flashy truck Seriously, that is awesome, and having driven only Chevy and GMC trucks, that's strange coming from me, but very easy to say.

Thanks. While I tend to be fairly quiet and fade into the background, I kind of go the opposite direction with my vehicles. Plus I sort of have a thing for yellow.

Nice Truck! I saw a remarkably similar truck for sale on a nearby lot. I had to wonder what people with spainglish language skills think of it considering that "Amarillo" means "yellow".

P.S. Have you considered some old-school KC lights with the smiley covers?

This is my daily driver, but just because I've got a 38 mile commute one way. Otherwise I'd have considerably more than the 240K miles that are currently on my 2000 Silverado.

Plus it's just fun as hell to drive.

Yes, i understand Amarillo = Yellow. I was wondering if people who live here (south Mississippi) and who speak spainish (many immigrants from Mexico & her neighbors) and who see the truck will think it is silly to put the word for the color of the truck on the side of the truck. Wouldn't it seem funny if every truck was labeled with its color? I also found it funny because, most of the rednecks around here would think of the city in Texas rather than the word in spainish.
