Thanks George. We're out looking but finding the 2015's hard to come by at this time of year so maybe a 2016 is in our future. I guess we'll see how it all comes together and maybe the Ram is back in the mix if I can't make the right deal. We liked the Ram but boy did it ride really rough. I know it will ride better loaded but we'll drive it as much unloaded so I'm not sure what the boss will say.

And Millie, I still haven't remembered Laurie's email address yet :d

Three of my friends just bought 1 ton Rams single rear wheel, I think if the other big two do not promote some deals Dodge will out sell them all.
But like I said most Rams come with the standard Trans and it is a huge cost to get the Aisin trans. and brings the cost close to Fords and GM trucks.

Laurie is a smart, experienced wife. I am confident she WILL hold this as leverage to be used when it is most beneficial for her. Isn't that what you ladies do? My bet is truck first, KING SIZED bed with new walls next, then she will add to the herd. Timing is everything. :d I bet Jackson will be the great reveal.

Yes she is way smarter than me :d

Based on truck prices I'm betting a new trailer is a ways off, unless I hit the powerball :d

Well I found the right truck and the right deal today. Basically got 2015 pricing on a 2016 GMC Denali.

Laurie has named it BAT (BIG A## TRUCK)

And before Chris can chime in........here is the first picture.

Great looking truck and a Denali at that, you will enjoy it for years to come.
I love the new LED front running Lights.

From the web!

Maximum payload of 6,111 lbs

4730 seems to low for the dually???

I'll have to grab the info again out of the door, I may have read it wrong, and get to the scales to confirm the payload.

The reality is I could come home any day to another one, it's always been the possibility, and I'm a big mush pot when it comes to puppies so who knows if I'll have another set of feet to wipe :shock:

Very Nice guys! The only accessory that truck needs is a bigger fuel tank. I really like my 60 gal Transfer-Flow OEM replacement tank. I cannot imagine towing long trips without that extra capacity. BAT is beautiful. Now that makes you "BAT-MAN". :d
