Great. Frown
So you're saying add the tube of LubeGard Shudder Stop as soon as I get it? Cool

Well, the good news is...I wont live to see 50K miles.
Took me 19 years to clock 31k on the unit I have now.


hahahaha..... I guess it wouldnt hurt. I will say this, this might be a good test to put Transynd in it.

I am also assuming you or your wife dont drive like a bunch of idiots either. That trans, around here anyways, usually goes out around 120k. But we are known for being stop light city

It has a pretty good life.

My G-20 4L60E has about 130k on it as well, towed the open trailer about 60k miles, but I'm real careful about not towing in OD range.

I try to get our road service techs to keep their trucks in Tow/Haul mode at all times. Even empty those trucks are heavy.

Update,

Phord, looks like I could order today and possibly have the truck sometime between April and July.

Can't bear to even deal with the GM option yet.

Saw a used '21 Dodge for $82K the other day. Laughing Hard

Goob I know of a guy that would not pay crazy new high prices for a new truck. He said it had to be gas. He decided to put a 632 pump gas motor in place of the old 454. He said it pulls great and is paid for. Big Grin

Just pulled the trigger on a new GMC, ordered the way I want it.
6.6 Gas SLT with a few options, like sunroof, 5th wheel/gooseneck package, block heater, auxiliary battery, spray bedliner, Bose, leather, T&T, locking diff., etc....
Delivery time? Unknown.
Actual sales price? Unknown, all incentives, discounts, or possible 0% finance options determined at time of delivery. I think I'm in a good position since the truck is nothing anyone else would want.

Now we wait.
Guess I'll kill the time filing for my Social Security, so I can pay for it.... Big Grin Cool

I was looking at a new Ram 3500 last year loaded. Just think, you won't have to worry about regens and DEF along with *** Check engine light on. Going into derate.

Holy Dollar bills.. My 89 F350 7.3 will take me to the grave.And that's OK.

I feel ya, but our standard cab just isn't working with 2 grandkids who love going racing.
It was a new truck, or a motorhome.
I'm cool with the truck I guess. And no diesel headaches. We'll find out how cool the 6.6 gas engine is.

3.73's with the 14K tow rating. That was pretty much the only gear ratio with all the boxes I checked off.

Wonder why the 4.10 is no longer available.

Probably because of the 6-speed with a 4:1 low.

In RWD with Gas it's 3.73's, 3.42's with a diesel.

I think there are other options with 4x4 or single rear wheel configurations.

Ahhh interesting. And I'm sure that transmission helps too. Bet this will be a super nice tow vehicle!
