Wow! Gorgeous truck! I've test drove a couple & what I noticed most was the great ride & how quiet it was once you closed the doors.

What does it say is the cargo carrying capacity on the sticker on the door pillar? That will give you the exact amount for your truck as itís built with all the options.

Compared to my 09 it does drive very nice and it's definitely quieter, the AC seat's are a welcomed upgrade here in NC as well.

I thought with the 900+ or tq it would feel different towing my Raptor but I guess having my old truck tuned and deleted added quite a bit of extra tq.

I know at full throttle my old truck would smoke this one entering the highway, maybe someday they'll figure out how to make an aftermarket tune for these new trucks.

It never smoked, I had a great EFI live system with 5 custom tunes on the fly. It might have smelled and with the 5" strait pipe it was loud at full throttle.

Door sticker says 4533 Lbs, I'm guessing the higher weight is for the single cab trucks that are lighter than the crew cabs?

That is still a pretty good payload. Enjoy.

They were the ATP Trucks "Idaho Rob" custom tunes, some of the best you can get back in the day when I first installed them.

New to the Forums, just bought my first Fiver but here they are. 2007 Silverado LBZ Duramax, Straight piped and Cold air intake, and a set of air bags, no other mods. So far only racked up 83K miles, pulls great and I just love passing other brands uphill with no effort

Here's my 2002 F250 7.3

Owned this since she was a baby and only has 145000 miles on her. Hopefully many more years of life in her. A few changes, doors are new and the bed/tailgate were new in 2016. Just replaced the wheels with remanufactured factory originals. I'd rather spend money to keep this one going than drop $75000 to replace it with a new model with the same specs. On a side note, I hate the big fuel door.

Swapped the wheels and tires, I'll save the stock ones for towing the camper. Added some HID lights and LED rear lights.
