    Hey all,

    I bought a 2020 3500HD (yes I know the majority of folks think it’s ugly as sin.. But it’s a work truck) and I’m in the process of building it out. It will have a wideout on the front and a 16 foot short iron plow on the back. Western 1.5 striker in bed and I’m also building a brine sprayer that will have 150 gallon tank (pre wet pavement only).

    new truck builds are fun! If you like you can follow me on YouTube for cool drone videos of the short iron working once it snows.

    here is my initial review of the truck after owning it 45 days.

    All of my friends that said they didnt like the new look said they liked my truck when they saw it in person. I dont have very many friends and we aren't the type to be nice to each other.

    Those are the best friends to have. I like the look of the V on that truck. I am sticking to my wideout this season. I plow a walmart and some other large areas and feel like the wideout will carry more.

    I like them.. I’d like to set in one, supposed to be a couple inches taller in the cab.. I’m pretty short, feels like I’m setting on the floor in my ‘15

    I'm 6' 4" and wife is 5' 4", we are both comfortable. Her only complaint is she can't see the nose.

    The steps just behind the cab look like they’d catch a load of mud and snow that was kicked up by the front tyres. Are the steps supported by some type of internal structure/frame?

    Yes they are integrated into the frame well. I’m 324 pounds and they don’t budge at all!
