Man, been really missing my 05 I traded in last year. New truck is really nice, but it just doesn't feel as well put together as the 05. Hope it's new owner is enjoying it.

Anyone else with the miss my truck blues?

I am still adjusting to mine. There are some things I like better than the 07 but I do miss the sparkle and shine.

I still miss my 04. But like Ken said there are some sweet things about the newer trucks too. The cooled seats are great down here in the summer.

I actually miss my '12 more than I miss my '03, and I only had it for 9 months.

I'm surprised to hear all you say this. I like my 2010 way more than 2005. Much more advanced truck in almost everyway. The interior FINALLY got good, much better ride and gas milage and an additional 45 horse. Love it!

Newfiebullet, that thing is sweet!!!! Can you post some more pics? What are you running for wheels and tires? Nice work, would love to see more pics.

I sometimes miss my 2007. It was my first new vehicle. It was a BigHorn edition. This time I went down to a ST, but the only thing it doesn't have compared to my previous one is tow mirrors and a compass. Plus, my new one is 4x4 and doesn't have my ex-wife's name on it. I really only miss mine when I think about the payments that I wouldn't be making now. But I did like the interior of it. It was simple and felt big. I'm not a fan of huge dashes...they make me feel cramped.

Looked at the 2012/2013, they are really nice trucks.

I'm still a big fan of my 2006 "Lonestar Edition" so I will be keeping it for a long time.
