I can use AlfaODB to reconfigure vehicle options and correct the range for the fuel gauge as well. I used this program to enable correct function of the OEM LED headlight housings I swapped.
That痴 impressive

Another great looking truck!!
But I'm a bit partial to the brand!
Id bet you'll wonder why you didn't get the diesel before now, they are a towing beast.

Nice truck. I think the GMC looks so much nicer than the Chevy.

Newbie to the site !
Recently completed an 800 mile roundtrip, from Highland, Il to Wisconsin Dells. 90+ percent of this trip was interstate. On the interstate, set the cruise at 62mph, OD off, mpg ranged from 10-11.5. Had a crosswind on the way up, head wind and rain on the way back.
Extra items I installed on the truck - sumosprings, brake controller, extendable tow mirrors.
Using a Husky Centerline TS hitch, that came with the trailer.

My 2017 Ram 2500 has a dual roll.

Side note: it blows my mind how many 3/4 and 1 tons don稚 have gooseneck/fifth wheel prep in them from the factory (new trucks).

Thanks, I thought it looked familiar but we've never been to that one. Looks nice.

Thank you. Never thought I could afford it. While there were very few trucks on the lots and most were around 80k or more, I ordered mine through a local dealer for 63k. I still got a 1 ton. Still 4x4, still crew cab. Just didn't pay for all the extra stuff I may never use anyways. It was the easiest car deal I've ever experienced. I highly suggest this route to anyone even considering a new vehicle. Just go online and play with the build calculators.

New to this but here's what I got!

Hello all,

We just bought a 2005 zeppelin ZII 291

My tow vehicle is my 1999 GMC Z71 1500. It has the 5.6L V8 vortex with the extended cab ( 3rd door ) and an 8' bed.

I bought her in 2005 while stationed in Alaska for my 21st birthday and she's been with me ever since. Added a rough country 6" lift and 1 ton leafs in the back. She drove from Alaska back to Maine and now we are doing a 2 week Midwest and deep south trip.

Any suggestions, comments and concerns please don't hesitate to let me know.
