There are many terrible attributes of the lowly cob. Not the least of them is that it makes you look like a doof.

The 2019 6.7 I6 High Output Cummins is actually quite clean burning. And amazingly quiet compared to rigs from even just a couple years ago. Just a pure joy to drive.

I will definitely NOT put a lift kit on this beautiful truck. It's absolutely perfect as it is, stock.

A goose weighs about 8 pounds, so about 1000 geese.

Getting all of them into the back of the truck will be the hard part. I recommend getting them drunk first.

Dawn.

No, just kidding. Haven't yet had the need to wash the truck. McGuire's has a nice gentle car wash soap and I have some left from when I used to take care of my Tacoma. I use a large very soft fibered hand held brush, top to bottom.

Our town also has a coin operated brush-less car wash I will likely use as well, finishing with a spot free rinse.

The truck is like a candy store. Everyday I keep seeing features it has that I never knew about. It is a modern technological marvel.

It has "self park" technology. Cameras all over the place show on the 12 inch screen and audible chimes tell me how I'm doing. At night, powerful LED back up spot lamps mounted on the side view mirrors light up alongside and behind the truck.

But I mostly park a little distance away from the bunched up cars and trucks to avoid having to go through all of that.

This truck is 22 feet long and there's nowhere it can be parallel parked. .

Did you toss a brick into the truck bed to give it first dent & scratches in order to diminish the angst when it happens in the wild? :chili:

I am very careful with vehicles I cherish. This is not a cowboy or construction truck.

My neighbor across the street is kind of a cowboy type. His 2016 Toyota Tundra now looks like its been to hell and back. What a waste.
