    Had enough of the old 07 GMC and time for some new trucks anyway. It was a good truck but something was breaking or leaking or a new dent was added every month. Stripped it of its plow, spreader and back rack and traded it in for a new Chevy. Put 1700 miles on it with a trip to Quebec in its first 2 weeks. Next to replace is the other GMC pick with a new one.

    Truck looks nice, are those upgraded rims? Look like 18" or 19" Why the change of color?

    That might work too. I heard EFIlive is finally working on tuning the LML's, so that could work.:gunsfiring:

    Could not find a 2013 white one, had to go darker. Gets washed 2x a week now.

    Picked up the plow mount the other day, hopefully get it put on the next few weeks.

    Id go with a MINI Maxx from PPEI. They use MCC which is H&S performances version of EFI live. But you get a screen and multiple tunes. EFI on the LML's is a one time deal. My LML is a monster with everything ive done to it. Are you looking for a plow for it? Ive got a 2012 MVP 8.6' poly for sale.

    What kind of mileage are getting with that tune?

    It is getting a plow, which I took off of the one I traded in. It is an 8' pro plus, just bought a new mount and the wiring harness is the same.

    **** i get great fuel economy. Id say +4 mpg overall. The higher the tuning the better the fuel economy. Just have to lay off the go fast pedal.

    Kept my old plow from the truck I traded in and put it on about a month ago. Also got the decals put on.

    Bought truck at home and have a cabin in Quebec. I got sticker shock on a 20 pack of beer. Couldn't imagine what that truck would be up there. Although diesel was cheaper than gas.

    Got my 06 cleaned up and traded it in. Truck has about 22,000 miles on it but was getting up there in age. Still a lot of life left in it, just for someone else though.

    This is the replacement for the 2006. A 13 Chevy with bad taste in plows. Had that removed and put a 8' pro plus on it. Just need to get a Snowex SP8500 for the back of it.
