Lol. She?d be wrapped around the axle

So here?s the decision point I could use some help with

Dealer has a fully loaded LTZ Z71 that the manager drove as a demo and I?ve got him down to 48 plus ttl which is 11,700 off sticker.

GMC is offering 11000 off the loaded denali but it would still be 54 +ttl

The Denali has the 6.2 but I don?t know if I need it. The Z71 has dvd rear entertainment and 20 inch wheels instead of 22s on the gmc

That?s still 6k to buy up to the Denali and I?m not sure it?s worth that much.

Thoughts?

Let?s get it on and get it over with. All of Jerusalem belongs to the Jews. It wasn?t until 633 AD that the Muslims even had a movement   

The romans laid waste to that temple in 70ad. The Palestinians have no right to any of that land.

Yeah. Then there?s that. Fortunately I don?t travel often (relative to other roles in my company)

Most of my travels serve to scout out opportunities for getaways with the wife. Charleston is nice and is now on the list.

It?s not too bad since I can set my own schedule for the most part and many hours are at home before the family wakes or after they go to bed.

Some weeks are better than others. At least I eat well when I travel

What gets me about multi vehicle ownership is the maintenance. Even if you farm it out the scheduling is brutal when you work 60-70 hours a week.

Fewer would be simpler.

Of course my boy Nate points me to the Denali ultimate.  Now I?m even considering something other than red :eek

Wife won?t let me paint her van......


I may keep the LB7 just to play with it. I have a LB7 block crank and heads coming in July.

Could do a SAS, lockers, 4:11s and some mud grapplers and then go play with the Jeep boys .....

But likely I?ll just stop digging. I was told if you find yourself in a hole that?s the first rule of order.....I?ve got over $40k in it and would be lucky to get $15k out of it. Any takers??

Why do you even need the dually anymore aside from the everything is bigger in Texas mentality?

New truck - what color will it be? ;)


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I'll keep the dually for the weekend place and when I need to haul something heavier than I'm comfortable with in the 1/2 ton. 

And you don't even need to ask the second question



not the dealer I'm working with but just an image I grabbed off the net

Well boys. Drove a z71 w the 5.3. Wow what a difference in ride quality.

Drove the new l5p 2500 too but it wasn?t that much better than my dually. 

Probably keep the dually if I get the gasser

Thanks Shawn.  I think GM has some good incentive to move the 2018 with the 2019 coming soon and a new body style.

that eco boost is a powerful engine, just wonder the longevity of the twin turbo v6 turned up that high

Which one did you think rode better over crappy pothole roads?

So thinking of rewarding myself. Either a nice watch or another truck.

Thinking 1/2 ton gasser crew cab 4wd as a DD and parking the dually at the ranch.

Not sure I like the 2019 and may be able to get a deal on a 2018 Chevy/GMC.

I?d like to be able to tow 7000-8000 without turning 6000 rpms

Thinking 5.3 or would you guys recommend the 6.2

Might even consider cloth seats and cover them with ballistic seat covers so I can remove and wash them

Wondering how the Silverado compares to the Ford F-150 in terms of price and equipment and longevity?

Thoughts ?

It?s true that compromise for political purposes can be a bad thing.  Unfortunately the reality is that many people are moderates and willing to accept compromise.

Oh and not sure I have the photos but my hitch was hit hard enough to bend the ball flange upward about 3/4 inch. Toyota Tacoma with a ranch hand pipe bumper hauling a landscape trailer and he hit me in the hitch directly with the bumper.

Hard enough to fire the seat belt tensioners and give me a bit of a concussion when the headrest hit my head.
