    Swapped my 17 midnight Duramax for a new 19 They will be changing the mirrors soon, but otherwise it’s the same truck I had. Cranked the torsion bars down on this one to bring it up near level though. Might as well no bankrupt big tight!!!!! 75FFF523-3D7D-44BB-AB67-A8161BB0A9C6.jpeg 1D306B82-114D-44C2-95BA-F234FA0D61D0.jpeg 50037253-C602-4974-A9CF-04B9D91BB5E7.jpeg 372FF19D-00D2-43DF-AEEC-FDAB2D2900DB.jpeg DE32AE97-2FF7-4F22-9FAE-52307EF8FADF.jpeg

    That thing got stake pockets. How high of side boards you gonna add for wood haulin?
    Looks nice. I’d like a ‘19 or ‘20, but will have to wait till about ‘2030 for one of those

    I mound it up, but no stake rack. I have a 14k trailer for the heavy hauls.

    NICE looking truck sir. Too nice for wood hauling! Nothing like having a new vehicle! Looking forward to seeing it in action with firewood!

    Nice truck and that motor should do what you need. Love to have that myself.

    Beautiful truck! I greatly prefer the look of the 2019 over the new 2020 look.

    Great looking very capable truck. I am definitely considering upgrading to 2500HD GMC in the next couple of years.

    It comes with a spray in bed liner, as part of one of the packages. I hate the look of the 20, plus I do not want to be in the first year of the Allison 10 speed. That and the closest model to this in a 2020 was$77k. Trucks are ridiculous in price!

    Property values and wages are usually in relative proportion.

    What I make per year would likely qualify as poverty in some areas.

    By March I hope to be free of all debt but the mortgage. Just under 6 yrs left on that as well.

    I have not sold it. It is still listed, but must be too high for others. We are back to using it. Actually, we camped this weekend. Was nice and cozy. Big Fire outside and then had the fireplace going in the camper. Even if it’s electric

    Sweet truck. Hauling wood in the bed won't make these trucks flinch a bit. I've loaded my '16 plenty of times and it barely squats. For work I occasionally have to haul two 1 ton skids - that makes it squat. My Dad and I have the same truck only his is a Denali w/ gas and it's amazing how much more power the Duramax has, no question about it.
