Nice truck. You'll have to get some good pics and post. I have the 6.0L 2500. Not getting 18 MPG, but love it. I also prefer the way it sits over my 1500, but any taller would be tough for everyday activities. Congrats and enjoy!
If you ordered the Prodigy, I'd stick with it. My buddy added "factory" brake controller, and has had a couple occasions it faults out and he lost trailer brakes. Factory one is great, but I'd have no issues using a Prodigy versus installing factory if mine didn't come with it. Fun Fact: I've read and heard aftermarket brake controllers work best for electric-over-hydraulic setups.
Tough call. Depends on area/availability of equivalent used models. I have a 2015 Silverado LT 2500 with the 6.0L. Cloth, but heated and power with a few goodies. I paid $36K in Nov 2017 with 30k miles. In my area, you can't touch one for $40k now, and those have more miles than I do now! Best of luck! The 6.0 has been great.
I'd walk. They'll probably play more games.
For all those wondering... The GM exhaust manifold issue is alive and well with the 2014-19 generation. I just had all driver-side bolts replaced under powertrain warranty. I have 44k miles on the truck, and heard what I suspected was a manifold leak. Boom - warranty replaced it. Let's hope the passenger side bolt breaks before August of 2020!!
Me personally, I'd throw them on and see what happens. Nothing I expect, but you can flash for speedo and what-not after the fact if you need to. I would not expect any codes. I went up a size in tires and nothing happened (small difference, but still).
If I may... I added that exact mirror to my 2015 SLE 1500. Turn signal didn't work, but power/heat did. My 2015 Silverado 2500 has the newer, square tow mirrors. Came as-built. Having had BOTH arrangements, I am NOT convinced having the red LED's blink is worth spending $130+ on a door harness. Honestly, I think it'd be more useful if the amber LED flashed with signal. I suppose others can see the mirror arrow when it blinks, but really it just faces the driver for the most part. Good luck with whatever you do with it!
my toolbox sits on top of plastic caps. I put peel-stick foam on bottom of box to protect the truck, and bought tool box anchors off Amazon. I did not have caps removed for bedliner (unless the Line-X guys arbitrarily take them off). They spray up inside bed edge, so don't see a need to remove them. Edit: Hit Craigslist or something for the box. I paid $60 for a $300 toolbox
