    The T.S. said "blue" so I presumed he meant something like Dykem, but now that I think about I realize I was mistaken.

    Well if I get another truck, I would sell my 2500HD. I really want a flatbed / stakebed, and it makes no sense to spend the money to replace my factory Silverado 6'6" bed with a flatbed. So since I...
