Ouch. I think the upfitter switches are holding up the build.
That would be correct, I was told they were on constraint when I ordered as I wanted them also.
They are still on constraint.
As are AT4's now too, I think they are selling better than GM anticipated.

They are bound to sell well, finally a high end package with no chrome. The others have had a blacked out version forever. I had to have switches, and ordered badge delete since I take off badges anyway.

and ordered badge delete
You can do that?

I always tell the Dealer NOT to put their tag on it for make ready.
Then I show up for pick up.....and their Name's on the dually flaps.

"gotta have a State Inspection for it to leave the lot.....gotta have flaps for the inspection" 'dunno;

Badge delete was not available, I checked.
I believe it needs to be slt or less trim for that to be available.

big job done, nice hot water bath, dried, clay bar, removed all the adhesive and rail dust.
Complete coat of Meguiars Carnuba plus, and polished and coated the glass.

I use the spray wax for maintenance, but put down a good coat of paste wax at least one a year.

Im currently debating what bed cover I want. I've had the Bakflip Revolver X2 before and loved the functionality of it. I was eyeballing the Truxedo Sentry and Sentry CT but it seems the Truxedo design you have to close the tailgate before shutting cover and that's a no Bueno. Is there any other roll up hard covers out there that I'm missing? That would also be similar to the Revolver where you can shut the cover regardless if the tailgate is open or closed?

I have been looking at the Baks too. Can't make up my mind though. So these are all the ones I have found to be available or in production for the 20s thus far. Weathertech has one I will adding today but it is a hard tri-fold like a bakflip.

Check it out

Let me know if you have any questions.

I literally just ordered an X4 from my local shop, they said it was in stock and should be here tomorrow morning. We shall see! According to the "internet" the X4 has bigger latches, better seals, and several other upgrades from the X2 design.

I had pulled the trigger on the Truxedo Sentry, until I saw their tailgate seal design. Had to call them and cancel that order.

Well dang. Yeah I need to make up my mind and get one coming as well.

Dito. I ran those tires for along time and had to install mud flaps because the front of my black boat had about a million tiny rock chips on it. I still run Michelins, just a different model.

And congrats on the truck - I'm jealous! Exactly the truck that's on my list! Probably for '21 though.
You may want to look at the DuraFlap mud flaps. They are a drill-less installation and full size to protect not just your truck all the way down the sides but anything you tow.

Well I don't know if I "beat" the system, but I got to looking at drop hitches and wondered what would work with the Multipro tailgate. Low and behold I found the following, 6 inch drop angled full forged 17,000lb capacity. Clearance with the step down is around an inch.

I originally had a B&W tow and stow, with the new truck I had it set to the bottom setting which was 6 inches of drop. 6 inches of drop seems to put my utility trailer pretty level ride wise on the new 2020 truck.

Got my B&W RVK3710 installed today. Will do a test tow soon. Install was straight forward, and decided to go with the straight up configuration instead of further back since the default setup is slightly rear of the axle.
