No, that's not a tool box in the bed of this 1998 GMC Sierra 2500 Bi-Fuel Truck - it's a CNG (compressed natural gas) tank that cleanly and effeciently fuels its Vortec V8 powerplant for the first 150 miles - then a 34 gallon gasioline tank can take over for another 400 miles.
If you're a fan of full analog instrumentation, you'll find the dash easy to read and use. The left stalk may need a little getting used to, however, since it is bundled with a fistful of functions.
Under the hood, there's even an empty holder for a spare battery. Could be very useful for all you anglers with electric trolling motors...
