New TV ordered and pickup this coming Saturday!!!

Excited! We finally got around to getting a new 1 ton. We have 3 trailers we tow for different reasons (Fiver is 12K as well) and this will be my daily driver. For some reason, I love big trucks to drive. Always have! This one has all the bells and whistles for the comforts of using it daily and we plan on keeping this one for at least 5 years as this may be the last of the LML Duramax trucks. I love this motor and tranny combo. She can tow up to 23K which is more then enough. She goes in for a new B&W hitch install and front window tint this Monday. Waiting this week will kill me...

The old: 2014 2500HD LT



The new (just after the dealer got it off the semi) 3500HD Denali

I do like the look of the new 3500. I would buy one if they were available here. No one has them in stock when I was looking.

Type in Chevy dually 2014-2017.
Across all of Canada. There were 4.

I'm way too impatient for a factory order.

This was me 2 months ago. Almost exact trucks, colors, and situation.

I had trouble finding a 3500 also...........but found a dealer with dozens of 'em, and dealing. Lucky to have it.

They are nice..........for sure.

Around here brown gas 2500s are all they seem to stock (for the Amish/ Mennonite's).. No 3500s. If they have a diesel it is usually a work Truck version. My truck was the only one in the are and it had been sitting for 6 months...

We have plenty available her. The 2500s sell like hot cakes. I really wanted an iridium metallic but there was only one in Florida and it had EVERY option. It was about 4K more expensive then the one I bought. So Summit white was the 2nd color choice.
