The dealer called back a little later to tell me that it doesn't have the 4" black- round assist steps (RVS) because they are on back-order. He said they will come in at a later date but does not know when. This probably explains why I noticed a build code of 2030, maybe he took them off to speed up the process LOL. I do not mind and will be pulling a full build with the VIN from GM to see all the build codes just to double check, and I will make sure to have something in writing as well. I am just glad it did not take too much time from start to finish and have it before camping season starts up. I will be picking her up this Friday. Maybe some of you who have been waiting for a long time could ask your dealer to do this as well if b/o parts are part of the problem? Just a thought.
Order was placed last week and dealer today said it is currently at 2030 which means when next allocation shows up they will pull the order. He is guessing 7-10 days then a week after that will get a build date. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
I went to the dealer this weekend and had them type up my order for a 3500 HD CCLB. Sales guy said he can place orders on Tuesday and Thursday. I guess I will find out soon enough. I was told 6-10 weeks. This was on 2/6/21. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
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.
