CaldwellOne - nice looking truck. It shouldn't have any trouble doing the job for you.

As for GM 2500 axle ratios, they have flip flopped like a politician running for reelection over the years. When I ordered my '07 4.10 was standard. I ordered the optional 3.73's (one of 2 mistakes - the other was light gray cloth interior that did not age well). Just to add to the confusion, 3.73 is usually the performance/towing ratio for the 1500 class.

Looks great Cald!!!

SMS,

Last I knew GM now only has a 5yr/60k mi power train warranty like the others for the gas trucks, can't recall what the diesel is.

BLD,

Nice truck, don't forget to update your signature!!!

Looks like you have the tow mirrors. Im considering upgrading the stock ones to them.

Yes, I added them afterwards but they aren't completely functional as the dealer wants $200 to turn them on.

200$ to turn them on? What does that mean?

Depending on features (power folding/ heated or whatever) they have to activate the "sales code" in the system to get those functions working as designed.

The 2016 6.6L Duramax has a 5yr/100k powertrain warranty, and my 2016 2500HD 6.0L gasser has a 5yr/60k powertrain warranty.

"Certain commercial fleet, and/or government fleet vehicles" may have a 5yr/100k powertrain warranty which may include the gas engines (GM documentation not very clear).
