New Truck for our Pinnacle

We made a big mistake, we stopped by the GMC Dealer to look at 3500HD Trucks to get a idea of what the cost would be to move up from our 07 2500HD to a new 3500HD.

Well, they got us, lots of rebates and a great offer on our 2500HD.

We now have a 2012 GMC 3500HD SLT

I don't think you made a big mistake at all. I am tempted to go make the same mistake on my 2005 as well. Great looking truck, Rob.

Looks like it'll pull. Bigger toys for bigger boys.

That's the way to make a mistake Rob. :king_grin:

Bet it looks good hooked to the 5ver and you will certainly notice the difference with the heavier dually going down the road especially when really windy.

Thinking of installing an extra fuel tank in the bed of ours...ever considered that?

Thanks Larry

We do not have the hitch installed in it yet, need to get some Break-In miles on it, it only had 12 miles on it when we picked it up.
They will be doing the spray in bed liner on Thursday.

As far as the extra tank in the bed guess I will have to how our range is with the current fuel tank.
