    wow that front end sure takes a nose dive with the plow on and raised!!! TIMBRENS will help and ide recomend them.....typical GM nose dive though!!

    Very nice truck, can't beat a D-Max IMO and the new GMC's have the best body style out of all the new truck lines.

    GM pickup rear ends usually ride a little high to begin with, especially an unloaded heavy duty.

    he is on a hill so that may make the truck look funny, although the truck does look bent in the middle? Mines sags a decent amount too, dealer recommended 2 or 3 turns on the torsion bars which I'm gonna do.

    Thats one reason I really don't like GM made trucks. They can't take a plow good in the front.

    But it is a nice truck.

    Holy cow guys if you would look alittle closer at the pictures you would see quite a bit of space between the fender and the front tire...so 1/2 inch drop is probly right, he even said he had timbrens on there. Ever occur to you that hmm maybe he doesnt have any weight in the back and that front axle is now the fulcrum of the system so the back end goes up! Nice truck by the way. I still liked your dually cummins better but, hey at least you got a GMC not a chebby. GMCs have always looked nicer.

    thanks jt. god does it ride better than the old dodge! ur right, theres 2500lbs of salt and my spreader missing from the bed. just to lazy to load it in there 2day. theres timbrens and 3 cranks on the torsion bars. the wheel gap goes from 8 5/8" to 8" with the plow up.
