Thumbs up Pulling the trigger on a Graphite Metallic Z71

Well if all goes well I'll be pulling the trigger on a Graphite Metallic Z71 crew cab Wed. Got a decently good deal & I'm getting several upgrades with the 17 Z71. I dig the color, changes a lot depending on the light. I'll posts pics when I can. Wish me luck!

Good luck! Graphite Metallic looks nice. I've heard good things about the '17's. Enjoy the Autotrac and 8 speed.

Talking Whoo Hoo I Got It!

Well things worked out & I got my 17. While it's not perfect, (nothing is) it is leaps & bounds better in many ways than my 16 was. I'll give details soon & I plan to do a video review as well. Here's some cell phone pics.

Nice! Congrats on the new ride. Now what do we will call you? KY Graphite? The artist formerly known as Red Rock?

It's close, but the graphite has more of a green cast to it, IMO.

Really? Well, huh, how about that. I definitely see a greenish hue to mine in certain light. Be neat to see each color side by side.

I was looking at this at my dealers lot, in direct sunlight, where they had the 2 parked next to each other. The Graphite actually came across darker in base color, but has more metallic in it for a lighter look, and giving it the strong green iridescence. Looks blacker in the shade, compared to Cyber grey.

Congrats on the new ride. Like my 17 much better than my 15.
