Just a reminder to check out the payload. A 2500/3500 certainly have the tow capacity I'd be more concerned with payload. I've got a small travel trailer and belong to a forum with a lot of similar questions and asking for advice. More often than not you will run out of payload well before towing capacity.
Do you plan on upgrading your TT in the future? I'd take that into consideration for sure. I tow a 2019 Flagstaff Micro-lite 25BH LB. Not apples to apples and I have the 3.08. It tows fine flat but I have no plans to ever run up and down mountains with it. The next truck I purchase will be a 2500 or 1 ton depending if we upgrade our TT. I prefer an easier towing experience. I added tow mirrors and plan on adding Timbrens and Bilsteins once it warms up to assist as well. It sits pretty level as is when hooked up. Gas mileage averages 9.5mpg and with the 22 gallon tank you have to make more stops. Trans temp runs around 200. I usually tow between 60-65mph. I use an Andersen WDH and it works well and Tekonsha P3 brake controller. Don't forget about payload as well. Most trucks run out of that before towing capacity.
I have a hard Lund tri-fold and it flaps marginally less than my old TonnoPro tri-fold.

Finally some nice weather knocked this project out in about 3 hours. Shout out to Phil and his wiring harness and wealth of information! Quality product and great instructions and videos.
Agreed. Leasing isn't just for those who maybe can't afford to purchase and need lower payments. This is the exact reason why we lease our Escalade and purchased the Silverado. I plan on keeping the truck as it replaced Old Blue, a 2003 Silverado. The SUV is for the wife and it's nice not dealing with extended warranties and warranty work, etc.
I've been using my Range for a little over 4 months now. I had to reset it once last week (take off, run for a few minutes and reinstall while running) as I noticed it was going back into V4 with it plugged in. . No codes were thrown. So keep in mind you may need to "reset" it occasionally.
Got around to changing my oil and sent out the sample from reading this post. Just got my Blackstone laboratories oil analysis back: 2018 LT 5.3L 6 speed 3211 miles mid-stream/hot 3% fuel in sample ( <2% normal) everything else normal for new break in engine When I change it again I will take a cold sample first, then get hot and check back in. Oil level was normal before changing. Thanks for the heads up.
Picked mine up before Christmas. Installed the nerf bars yesterday as weather was decent. Lund tonno pro cover. Dealer sticker demod as well as 4 x 4 stickers and replaced license plate bulbs witb leds. Looking at a leveling kit in the future.
