Upgraded the TV today

Went ahead and bit the bullet today on a new truck. Bought a GMC 2500 All Train Crew Cab with the 6.6L Duramax. WOW what a nice rig. The 07 Avalanche left me skeptical as I burnt up the rear end coming home from Beaver Lake Arkansas last summer. Made for a very expensive trip after the rear end had to be replaced and not rebuilt. I was very unsatisfied with the performance of the 5.3L and the lack of power in the mountains. The 5.3 isn't much when towing. Won't have that problem next spring going East thru Tennessee to Virginia.

Good deal!!! You will love it I'm sure. I like my '15 3500 gmc.
Did you get at hudiburg, Ferguson or one of the bobs?
I got mine at Ferguson in broken arrow, very pleased with dealing with them.
I've worked for all the ones i listed around okc, thats why i asked.

Congrats and have fun!!

Bought at Bob Moore on NW Expressway in OKC. Went to Hudiburg and found their Sales Depth a joke.

The All Train model wasn't what I originally went to look at but it had the equipment I wanted and it almost appears to be something in between the SLT and the Denali.

Cool.
Yes i noticed my boss's friend has an all terrain and it looked alot like my denali except the grille. I didn't see inside it, but honestly i still dont know how to use everything inside mine yet and I've had it a little over 2 months.
I've worked in the collision centers, and hate the sales departments. But i know a few guys in them. Just left Bob moore auto group last may. They are a good company and take pretty good care of customers. Just their collision centers are going thru alot of upper management issues. They go thru cycles.

Put some pics up when you have time so we can see your new beauty!!

We spend at least one week at Beaver Lake every year. We stay at the RV site below the damn and only cost 8 bucks a night and great trout fishing and scuba diving. Interesting roads and one over pass at 13'8" that we saw class A clip...

Can you tell me the name of the campground below the dam please? I'd like to go there for trout fishing this spring and personal experience is much better than internet searches. If you would like another trout location suggestion you can try Bennett Springs State Park north of Springfield, MO.

Beaver Lake Dam Site Campground. It is a Corp of Engineers campground. There are about 12 sites at the front of the campground that have water and electric. The rest of the sites are electric only. The campground is on the White River just below the dam.

This is site 1 at the Beaver Lake Dam Site Campgrounds. Great site and only about 150 foot walk to the White River. The only problem with the site is the fore and aft level of the RV is little extreme.

We have been to Bennett Springs and even scuba dived the springs into the cave down to about 80 foot deep level to what they call the popcorn room.
