    Looking at a couple new body trucks. Would like to go 11-13 anything newer is a litte too much dough. One truck is an 07.5, ex cab fully loaded and clean as a whistle. The other is a 13, crew loaded, and in great shape. Just a few more grand. Both 2500s both duramax. Other than the engine difference, what's the overall truck people are more satisfied with, I know the frames are different, and the newer truck seems to be a little taller, which would be nice on the 07.5. But is the IFS improved on the newer trucks? Do they handle a plow better? I'm just curious to know and get a general opinion of some people who have had both. Much appreciated.

    The 11-15's are a better truck for plowing and towing without a question. The def is only the only draw back to them.

    Little more stable with the new frame?
