2020 GMC L5P 2500 Denali

So after driving a 15 LML for 5 years (bought in apr 14) I have been waiting on the new body style to come out. Have been looking in Middle GA for about a month now and finally this Denali came in to a local dealer.

First Denali I have owned. This truck is 1in higher in the front compared to the LML stock ride height. It came with 34s but I had the dealer swap my rims and tires out and will put a 34 or 35 back on it when these 33s wear thin.

It is a bit of a stiff ride but I will be throwing the rancho's to the side and going with Fox 2.0 Monotubes again and sulastic shackles. This setup along with Cognito UCAs and their keys made the truck ride great!

Several non-powertrain mods are in order: tonneau cover, window ventshades, brighter LED low/high and fog lights and some others.

Has anyone had any luck using Android Auto? I am using a Samsung Note 8 and cable (that works to charge phone). The truck does not recognize the phone for some reason. I am going to try a different cable tomorrow and see if that works.

Thanks, it is one of the tonneau's I am considering. I loaded the ones that are available to order or pre-order into our store the other day. Retrax and Undercover. Will get the BAK ones loaded tomorrow along with everything else that is currently available.

Thanks for the pics, looks great! I thought about new rims but these are still in good shape so I didn't see a reason at the moment to make the switch. If I can help you with choices, let me know.

I fixed it last night with a different cable. For whatever reason the cable that I can charge with will not connect but I pulled a spare out at home and it fired right up. Now to get EZ Lynk setup so I have gauges again. Can't tune it with EZ (yet) but it should come in time.

Great Looking Truck! My first post here but am picking up my 2020 Denali White Frost tomorrow. FINALLY can go back to a Duramax!! GM moved the DEF Tank!!!! Going to put on tougher tires for the ranch in SE NM between Pecos and Carlsbad and a couple of sizes bigger and found out from GMC the axle for the AT4 is the same as the Denali and I like the White Frost which is NA on the AT4.

With this new 2020 model will be seeing a lot more out there. DEF tank punctures scared off a lot of people me included. My 18 6.7 Platty Ford has been a nightmare for just 35k miles. Cannot wait!!
