Peter,

Just curious, what is the payload of your new TV?

Gary

Hi Gary,

I get my truck on Thursday so I'll report back with the door information plus a picture of the rig.

It must be tough to look at his old truck every day when he goes to work!

The stats on the newer Duramax LML engines look pretty nice. 397 hp @ 3,000 rpm and 765lb of torque at 1600. They also reportedly get 10 percent bette fuel mileage over the LMM engines (2007.5-2010). I am jealous!

I'm a Toyota guy but since they don't make diesels (yet), I'm stuck with the GMC. I love the Duramax engine and Allison tranny but I'm just not sure about the rest of the vehicle . Anyhow, nice purchase!

Finally got a moment to hook up the White Hawk to take some measurements. Going for the first trip to Top*****h/Yakima this weekend. Really looking forward to seeing how the Duramax handles the mountain grades.

Interesting how T O P P E N I S H, WA (98948) gets edited automatically because it contains a certain word. Never even realized but I guess it does.
