I was gone for a while but I am back in a Duramax and the ride home yesterday felt great. Won’t be much of a build thread just some simple stuff but thought I would share.

Why thank you. Just 33x12.50x18 Nitto Ridge Grapplers.

Nope I would never buy the first year of a new model, give it a couple years.

Why thank you both. Glad to be back. Won’t be around all too much but will catch up here and there.

Got the tires installed today as well as the stubby antenna. More parts showing up this week I am sure of that.

Yes sir thank you for the advice on swapping back to the right side.

Not much to update. Window tint done, paint protection film done. Just needs to be detailed and ceramic coated.

I did use it to tow this weekend and like I told Joe I cannot believe how much better than the Ford it handles the trailer. I doesn’t dance around , sits flat and is just a pleasure to drive. Not to mention it averaged 10.5 mpg versus 8.6 mpg towing. I will take that in a heartbeat.

Couple pics.













Did get the new car out to the track and made a few laps and it’s great.

You get a new car? I thought the last one had a wrap and other stuff?

And as far as towing goes. Any ford owner you talk to swears it’s the best thing ever. Good to hear someone be honest about it.
Yea new car to replace the other. Picked it up 3 weeks ago and had my first track day with it. Very promising. Way fast.

I have nothing to hide. But my analysis tells me the GM has already dominated the Ford in several ways. The biggest is how the truck is hitched to the trailer. With the ford it was so tall even stick it required a 6" drop, 8" after the big tires. I raised it 5" for the new truck and it is so much better.

Been a while but haven’t been driving the truck much if any. Now about 3100 miles going to change the oil and get it ready for the upcoming race season.

Did get the OEM 1500 LED tail lamps installed and got my VLEDS LPF installed.
