New Work Truck

So I was given a new work truck today. It is a 2009 GMC Sierra 2500. It is a beauty

It even has a backup camera, when you put it in reverse half the rear view mirror turns into a screen and you can see out of the camera that is located by the tailgate handle! To cool!

Anyway, here are a couple pics of my new sweet day driver. Along with the Camaro I am set.

Long live GM

I know eh! It is so nice. My old work truck was a 07 Sierra 1500. But it was a base model. No power windows or any options.

This one has power windows, locks, mirrors, pedals, remote starter, butterfly tonneau cover and much more. It is such a nice truck !!!

Congrats on the new work truck! One of the best new features is the back-up camera without the need for the Nav. screen

I've been surveying for 25 years, bought my fathers business that he became a partner in in 1963. The business was originally established in 1927 and we have been local in our community ever since. It's a good profession, good luck!!!

i know! i would be looking at the rear view mirror anyway if i am backing up, and now the screen for the camera is right there the sensors and beep warnings are really helpful, especially since this truck is quite big and i am much more confident im not going to back into something low to the ground like a fire hydrant or something that can't be seen the the mirrors

yes sir! i went to school for 2 years out of high school for Surveying and now I have been working full time with this company for about 2 years. I really like it and this new truck was just icing on the cake

Nice truck, I just got the chevy version with the duramax. what's your got? Only problem I had is the backup camera is in the tail gate. I had to have it moved to put the work top on.

the truck has a 6.0 L Vortec V8.

ya, they put on a butterfly tonneau cover and the box dividers are all inside the box, so the tailgate and camera are all good
