    Here is a pic of my new '08 GMC2500HD that is replacing my '06 2500HD. I transfered my 8' SS XBlade over to this truck.

    Is there anything better looking than a Fisher on a new truck? I think not! Fantastic setup, and I'm sure you will get some great use of it. Good luck!

    Looks good. Congrats on the truck. Looks alot better with the tires on there. 285s or 265s?

    Reg cabs still look the best IMO, but with four kids those days are over. Are those BFG's 285's or 265's. It looks real good.

    They are BFG AT's 285/75-16. Was not going to plow another winter with those crappy 245 Duravis that GM puts on these 2500's

    You can just crank your tb's on the nbs, the stock keys are fine. Shock extenders would make it ride better though.

    Truck looks nice! Is it fully loaded inside or just a base truck? What did it run you if you dodn't mind saying?

    Set up for Satellite radio, I'd say it's closer to loaded than not! See the antenna on the roof? Never liked those, but the option is incredible!

    Ok, it's time to put this picture away before I decide to buy a new one!

    Do those 285's rub on sharp turns? If so, what did you do about it if anything?

    No they do not rub at all.

    Did you get the 3.73s or 4.10s? Have you figured gas mileage yet? Truck looks really sharp.

    I got the 3.73 on this one. had 4.10's on my '06. Have not really figured mileage yet but it is better than my '06. Was getting around 11 with that. So far this truck seems like twice the truck of that '06.
