My name is Lee and I live in Indiana. I have owned my '04 2500 QC long bed Hemi 4X4 for almost 3 years now and I have enjoyed owning and driving this truck since the day I bought it. I was in the market for a new truck after selling my '94 Silverado (that was my first truck and it was hard to let go of but it was time). I had no intentions of buying anything at the time when I drove through the car lot on that Friday after I got off work but there it sat (I was just killing time before I met up with a friend). I got out to look at it and a salesman walked up and said that this truck was getting ready to be test drove by another person...he told me to return in a 1/2 hour. It was closer to an hour by the time I returned and the guy that test drove it didn't want it. So we hopped in it and I took it for a test drive. As soon as I put it to the floor I knew this truck was going to be sitting in my driveway. The truck is silver in color, has a 5 speed auto, dual exhaust (a dual inlet/dual outlet Flowmaster 40 series), 3 1/2 inch angle cut tips, an Airaid cold air intake, spray on bed liner, nerf bars, tool box and clear tails. I am getting ready to put new rims and tires on as well. I have already purchased a set of 17X9 Dick Cepek DC-1 Blacks and a leveling kit. I am debating on whether to put some 1 1/2 or 2 inch blocks in the rear (open to suggestions). I still haven't decided on tires yet but they will most likely be 35's. This truck doesn't see a lot of off road action but the stock tires just don't cut it. This truck is dirty more than it is clean. Living in a rural part of Indiana means lots of gravel roads that have next to no gravel on them and have many wash boards. I like to hunt and fish as well. This truck got to haul my first deer ever taken during gun season to the check station back in November (it was a little 6 point buck). Less than a month before that on Oct. 30 I took out a small doe with the truck. This resulted in a shattered license plate bracket, pushed the bumper in on the driver side (it somehow missed the grill) and a small dent and scratches on my driver side door, $1,500 damage. I had been looking into aftermarket bumpers before that incedent but now I know I'm going to get one. After doing some research I have decided on the Ranchhand Bullnose Bumper. These are stout looking bumpers with options for additional fog lights and a winch housing. These bumpers won't break your wallet either. I hope everyone has enjoyed hearing my Hemi story. Thanks for reading.

P.S.
I hope the photo uploads. This is the only pic I have at the time and it isn't a good one due to the snow.
