It says in your profile that you have a 2016 truck. Where is the post with the new truck :?: :?: :?:

I guess it was overlooked . Usually some mention of a new ride is made in this section . Guess the new trailer over shadowed it. When you are full timing the last thing you need to deal with are truck problems. I would get a new one every few years also. See you in Jackson :thumbrt: :thumbrt:

It came a year early. But between GM and Costco I could not pass up the deal. Plus John Taylor was still talking about his very nice GMC and did not want to take away from that. Also my new truck looks so much like the last one minus the brush guard I was waiting to see if anyone would even notice. :d

I'm going with an underneath one this time to shed some weight. Will carry 61 gallons instead of 86. All and all will save around 240lbs

Yes, the Costco deal was hard to pass up. It's a great looking truck and I'm loving mine. I'll be interested in how your tank upgrade goes.

Buy a truck through them. They have a low hassle vehicle purchase plan that gives one a very good price. Chris

Well traveling from here to Salem and home I put on around 160 miles. Averaged 10.3 mpg with 2,900 miles on truck so I don't feel too bad towing that much weight. Guess I will see what I get going to Jackson and heading over the passes. Wont be picking up my new fuel tank until the way home.

So where are the photos? You'll need to get another grill guard if you do much driving is deer country.
