Congrats!!! :booze: sweet, can't beat that!! I like the duramax alot but not sure what i will end up with when the time is right. Speaking of trailers i was welding for awhile today , and got some hit done finally, all the suspension and main frame is all finish welded. just need to do some fish plates and crossmembers and wood deck and I should be able to take it up to les schwab for a new set of shoes!!

yeah mines not broke in yet I hear they do a little better after 30-40k but that could also just be a myth who knows I guess I'll find out when I get there Im knocking down 15 around town until I drive around my jobsite then it drops to 12.5 for the average, but thats better than a gas truck is gonna do so Im not complaining! even my little 2wd yota 4 banger only gets 16-17 when I load it up with tools and crap, it only got 20 empty driving like miss daisy, I wanna go on a long trip to see what the freeway mpg is on this d max, all in all I still have a wood from monday night over this truck!!!

I was thinking of exhaust too! I found a cat back 4" for 340 from magnaflow.

only $100 more (because of the 40 shipping vs. summits free shipping) but i do like the idea of a 5in exhaust hmmmmmmmm!!!! that would sound killer too! and its turbo back instead of cat back.... I like it thanks for the info!!!
