No one in their right mind screws with these new trucks. The only bomb with be to buy the extended 8 years 120K warranty!! With 365HP and 865 ft lbs I think it will tow my 12,400 29WBLX. Chris :)) :)) :))

Yep, I agree. These new trucks have all the juice one needs to do the job and are so complex now the extended warranty is a must in my opinion :d

Eight year warranty, I wish I could keep anything for eight years.

We have had the old truck over 14 years, trailer over 11 years and sold the boat just shy of 19 years. Walking in comfortable shoes is good! Chris

We left the dealer in Greeley, Co at noon and drove 409 miles today. We are 3 miles short of Utah. Talk about long legs this thing really strenches them out. Fuel fill is not as good as the old 2001. Other than that it is really nice. Got a lot of things figured out with the cluster and the 8.4.

Held the business managers hand to the stove and bought the 8 year 120k Max warranty for $2643.

We had a late lunch in Laramie, Wy and I was going to take a picture of "our" new Laramie, then forgot.

So this afternoon we drove 65 in Western Idaho and Oregon and got 21.4MPG. At 80 in the morning we got 18.6. We did 660 miles today from Evanston, Wy to Kenniwick, Wa. This truck at 80 is turning only 1700-1800 RPM and feels like it is out for a Sunday drive. Then slowing to 65 it feels like we are just crawling along. Chris
