You won't regret it, nothing pulls like a diesel. How 'bout some pics.

I don't like the complexity either but the new chassis and engine is fantastic. My 2015 is averaging 17 mpg which is 3mpg better than my 05 Cummins.

Weather is getting nice and we are going in a trip soon. We had the nose cap repainted due to the normal fading issues and I finally got around to adjusting the hitch height. The front is now about 1.75" higher than the rear and I have roughly 7.5" of clearance between the tailgate and the trailer. I'm much happier.

I've been running with 6" of clearance for 3 seasons now and have had zero issues. Just thinking you could drop the front down 1.5" and make it level and still have enough bed clearance.

That's all of the dropping I can get out of it. Had to "modify" enough as it is to get it done. Compared to where I started and the obstacles I've had to work around, I'm satisfied. Plus we have a large dip through a creek better we have to cross. Any less clearance and I will start hitting the tailgate into the trailer.

Awesome setup sir, I also wanted to give you an update on my new 2016 6.4L, I did order one with the 4.10 gears in the Big Horn and last I heard it was at the last rail drop off waiting for the dealer pick up. In any day now they should be giving a call and I will post pics.
