  • "It's been three years since this article was released, and I just now ran across it.  I can tell you that this was one of the best decisions that Milwaukee Tools made, and they have been hitting it out of the park with this, as they continue to add more and more modules for us to buy and use.I think that it was a good decision to wait a few years after the other manufacturers came out with theirs, so that Milwaukee Tool could see what worked and obviously, what did not work and make their system ten times better than pretty much everything else out there.  These are tough, water/dust proof and there are many different sizes for us to choose from.  As I mentioned before, they continue to release more new modules that interlock with this system.  Their radio/charger, vac, lights, and now the drawers are all great additions."

  • "Younare comparing a bare bones, simpleton vehicle company to top of the line car companies. Yes, all of the big three have basic transportation.  But take a look at how those basic transportation vehicles have added all sorts of amenities.  Look at the 01 Civic, Corolla, Sentra etc., and compare them to the current MY, and you'll see complete refinement in all of them.  However VW has a simpler outlook. As far as the trucks, they have come a long way. Many would say they have left too many in the past by NOT Offering a low options/amenities trim level along with the higher end trims.  They seem to be forgetting that many of us still use these trucks for a utility purpose and don't need all of the creature comforts and want a single cab, SWB truck. Or even a nicely equipped single cab, SWB.  They are chasing too much high dollar profit margin and not remembering where their roots are. "

  • "I understand that looks are subjective,  but after seeing the new Chevrolet Silverado,  I have to ask, was the focus group all blind?  Then they introduce the HD Silverado,  and it just reassures me that Chevy designers are  creature g a truck that seems to repel buyers, especially compared to the GMC Sierra,  both 1500 and HD.  I will say that I am a die hard Chevy guy, from day one, back in the 70's,  when I was a small boy, living on a farm. I have had many, many Chevrolet trucks and cars, and I am extremely disappointed with the new face on this Silverado.   So now I have well over the $80k required to purchase the Sierra Denali HD, I also find that truck lacking.  Not so much in the exterior styling or the capabilities that GM FINALLY caught up to the other two brands, but on the interior appointments.   They got most everything on the exterior correct.  They could give the fender flares some 2 inch lip and paint them to match the body. But thte interior is lacking, especially since it is a carryover from the outgoing model.  I mean, for 60k, there should be some major improvements,  especially compared to Dodge Ram,  and their gorgeous interior trim and finish touch materials.  AMD I'm not saying there needs to be a screen any larger than 10 inches.  12 is too massive, plus all touch screen is not a good thing.  We like the tactile buttons and knobs.Please, GM, let me feel like I am spending my hard earned money on a quality finished product and allow me to readily hand over a check for $80k+, and not regret it every time I sit in the seat, and then look at my friends new Ram and its gorgeous interior.Step up to the plate, please."

  • "Derek, I'll beg to differ on that assessment. I'm not sure if you've noticed or just haven't made it around to come back and update this comment after 3 years. But not only is the Milwaukee Packout System a great product that is actually tougher than any of the other modular systems that were already selling quite well Years Before this hit the market, but it is THE NUMBER 1 Selling System on the market right now. In fact, it is such a hot seller that there are tons of people out there making a living off of making Accessories for the hundreds of thousands, if not millions of Milwaukee Packout owners in the US Alone. This System is such a hit that contractors are lining the insides of their trucks, vans and trailers with them. These are darn near indestructible and they make them in all different shapes and sizes to fit all of your needs and wants. Not only are trades people using them, Firefighters, Ambulance, Police, Hunters, Arts/Crafts and all sorts of other people are using them. They really are great tools and worth every penny. Heck, Milwaukee Tools are constantly adding new pieces for us to use. They listen to their customers and are making a 2 and 3 drawer unit. These are sort of like LEGO's since they all interlock into one another. Go to your local Home Depot and try some out."

  • "These are great. I've used them for recovery, as well as repossessions when parallel parked, or even removing the vehicle from an area where the tow truck would not fit. I've also used them in the body shop. They are great tools."

  • "Not all of these trucks cost 80k, mainly the HD Denali trim level. "
