    I know I wouldn't mind having one with the beefed up frame and other weight handling mods.

    Here you go guys. I like the one piece front bumper. And it looks like a factory set of 20" rims for the new HD's.

    They definitely look better than the current generation, now if only business would improve so I could buy one.

    Hallelujah, our prayers have been answered! Every weak point has been addressed, and it beats ... uh, never mind....no bashing.... :)

    I'd sure love to have one, but I'm afraid the checkbook just isn't going to cooperate. No word on pricing yet...

    This article takes a while to read and repeats the same stuff a few times, but it's quite interesting to read.

    17" will be standard, 18" and the shown 20" are optional...however bolt pattern has changed, so GMT-800 rims will not fit.

    Tire sizes:

    2500hd

    LT245/75R17 all-season

    LT265/70R17 all-terrain

    LT265/70R18 all-season

    LT265/60R20 all-terrain

    3500hd

    Single rear wheels:
    LT265/70R18 all season or all terrain

    Dual rear wheels:
    LT235/80R17 all season or all terrain

    Also, a 36 gallon tank is standard across the board, and is good for 680 miles with the duramax.

    Interestingly, the max RPM for the Duramax has gone from 3450, down to 3000.

    I always hope with each redesign they could conceal the ground clearance robbing frame design. I don't know what they are thinking on something so obvious.

    At least these trucks will have 17's and 18's, that'll help with the clearance a little bit

    It'll go in limp mode when you dont have any urea
