    heard it on the radio this morning on my way to work. Paul McCartney did it first "Band on The Run" but it's been updated w/his blessing to represent a more pressing matter "Taliban on The Run".

    I'm sure you read/heard about the plane crash the other day, I had a buddy who's a volunteer firefighter helping with the recovery and loading the body bags, he said it was horrible. He said he saw what was left to a new Silverado in the area that took a hit. And now they think part of the cause was from "jetwash" caused by the 747 that had taken off 2 minutes before hand ! I don't fly often but this sure makes ya wonder if driving might be the better way. I am going down to World Trade Center "ground zero" on Saturday to survey area since I finally got clearence to do so, had some aqaintances that lost their lives there.

    I agree!
    Resolved, see above.
    Thanks for the link. I changed 2000 to 2001 and it shows the 2001 information. I'm wondering though, just because there is a bulletin it is possible some updates were completed before the truck was delivered to a dealer. I'll check the site if I notice anything strange.

    Adding that to my collection asap.
  • Just took it in, 2002 ex cab, ls, 5.3, 5.73 trailer package, snug top, bed rug. 3085 mi. 1 month (driving fool). Went over to the parts dept and they had an Escalade instrument panel on display and one in the box to be installed today. $429 installed Connell Chevrolet in Costa Mesa CA. So far no problems with the truck, didn't use any oil, no noises, just wish I wasn't working so much so I could wash it, last wash two weeks ago.

    Bought some Zano, hopefully the next week or so I'll get a chance to put it on, but the holidays are coming up and Thanksgiving is at my house this year. Got a turkey fryer for Christmas last year, going to give it a try.

    Good Luck with the new truck !
    You'll need about 5 gallons of cooking oil for that turkey fryer but what a difference between oven cooking !

    i was fortunate to be able to drive out to the coast last night and meet Matt (Blackmax). i can now say i have met two awesome people that have been regulars to this thread. although i consider all the regulars in here to be friends i feel fortunate to actually meet at least two from this board. Matt is an exceptional individual, and i want to say thanks for being there Matt, and for spending the time to show me what it is that you do that keeps you from home during the week. hope you had a safe flight home.

    Thats awesome!!!

    Wanna fly to indiana to hook up a sound system in my truck for me? haha
  • seeligseelig Posts: 590
    aand after meeting and talking with him, i'd probably feel safer if he was there to doing aany thing related to work on our trucks. the man knows his stuff. one excellent tip i'll pass on to ya though, AC Ultra Guard filters, are the way to go. when you hear what i heard, it makes a lot of sense to spend a little more.
  • ryanbabryanbab Posts: 7,240
    where do you get them?

    I have like 10 PF-59's left in my garage cabinet
  • danogdanog Posts: 318
    Finally went and got the Husky liners today. Very nice fit and the coverage in the rear is complete. Local price was a little more than web price but I got them right then, no shipping delays.
    The Dell is being built according to their order status page. The ship date shows the 4th of December but I doubt it will take that long. It will be nice to have something faster than my 200MMX Micron. This was top of the line 3 years ago.
    Glad to know trucks don't depreciate that fast!!

  • ryanbabryanbab Posts: 7,240
    HAHA Sounds just like me. I kept checking the status whenever i could.

    You will love it trust me. My new one is amazing.

    Did you order the zip drive?

    I kinda wish i had now i am looking for an external one (might be better then i can use it on my other computer also since i drag that one back and forth to school now)

    At one point I had thought that it was a cutting edge company. Last order placed for a desktop in January took 3 weeks to build and ship. If you go to their forums and see the amount of online complaints about delivery times being delayed for months at a begins to wonder.

    Upholstered front sent them out to get reupholstered for third time saying that this was the best solution other than ordering new seat. Seat came back and installed into truck. Took a look at it and had to laugh. Doesn't look anywhere near what it used to look like NOR what it is supposed to look like. Being that they had three times to fix this deformed seat....I wonder if they'll give in order a new one?

    Why would you want a zip drive? The cartridges are expensive and small. Why not get a CD burner (you should have gotten an internal). You can get a USB CD burner for a little more than a zip drive and store 600 MB on a $.15 CD-R.

    bring your truck to my dealer, he'll do it right......j/k...{:-)
  • The guys that hang here are top of the notch! Mike and I hooked up last night in picture this...the road from where he lives to where we got together looks like an angry snake on the map. I can just imagine the conversation Mike had with his wife..."we'll go 2 and a half hours in the dark one to meet this guy I have never talked to before...and oh by the way I'll buy you diner by the Pacific Ocean in Monterey"

    I want to tell ya'll Mike keeps his equipment in absolutely beautiful condition. His wife's 'rado looks like it just came off the showroom...(not off the back lot...the SHOWROOM!

    They are both neat people and we have the good fortune of having seelig among us...

    As time goes on I'm sure that some of our paths will cross and that makes life neat!!

    Mike, cutting board is now wrapped with a bow, wife's birthday is 12-15...thanks again guy!

    Got 4 hours sleep last night, Courtyard-SFO was $165/night, and flight was good. BTW guys NO MORE friendly skies! Guardsmen with assault rifes at security entries...plan 2 hours before flight time to get your stuff done!
