Nice truck!
As you already know, that Duramax/Allison is a tough combo to beat.
Had a pair of diesel duallies as our only daily drivers for 14+ years with a total of 300+k miles between them.
The DW said as the new owners pulled away with our last 5er in tow "let's go" I said "where?", she said "we're getting rid of that fat a## truck today for something smaller!".
Just saw a 42' TH pull into our park by a short bed F250. I seriously doubt he could drive at night with the headlights pointing straight up, but would be great for squirrel hunting. I'm sure the dealer said "Oh Yea! With that you can pull anything on the lot!".

Your daily commute will be hard on your emission systems. Need to get out on the highway on the weekends.

Iím not terribly concerned about the emissions side of it, Iíll do regens in my driveway as needed if needed. Did the same in my 17í.

Canít wait for the mpg to increase as more miles are added. Filled up tonight for the first fill up. Fun way to spend a small fortune lol

Itís been a long winter here in Ogden Utah. Getting stir crazy to get out.

Trailer goes into the Mountianland Rv in two weeks to have the roof completely refinished.

Never got to repairing the flooring in the Toy Box so Iíll be looking at that this weekend.

Ordered GPS GENERATOR PARTS SPECIALIST Tune Up Kit for Onan RV Generators 5500 and 7000, HGJAB, HGJAC and Commercial HGJAE https://a.co/d/4kfi1SM to do an oil change on the Generator when it comes in.

Otherwise I need to get some tires checked, replace the two batteries ( suggestions welcome but not changing everything to switch to solar and such), address the sticky grey tank drain valve.

Bringing up the tank drain valve if anyone knows or has a particular part to look for with out me needing to rip off the underside id be appreciative.

Next I need to figure out a solution to repair the hole in the ramp from the rzr coming loose.

I would like to attach a piece of diamond plate aluminum on the outside. My thoughts are some GE silicone, well placed self taping screws into metal structure of ramp and call it a new polishing surface.

The inside Iím just guessing in a decent solution first being expanding foam and then simply black paint maybe?

Suggestions?
