Truck

Our tow vehicle is a 2015 Chevrolet 2500HD. It started out as a fully loaded LTZ with everything but the factory bed liner and moonroof. We’ve since made several changes, many of which are featured on this blog. It was at some point a work in progress, but I actually believe we’re done with modifications to it for a while.
