  1. I'm curious to see the payload sticker for a loaded 3500 Denali Duramax.
  2. I had one of the B&W Companion hitches that used their Turnover ball mount (gooseneck) and it worked very well. I used it for several years before going with an air ride hitch that uses rails or an adapter. It was on a truck that had nothing but the gooseneck ball mount system. There was no issue with it spinning.
  3. I know there are hitches that connect to the gooseneck ball. I'm assuming you already have a hitch but there are options with the ball mount type.
  4. GM and I go a long way back until recently. I was ready to go see a dealer about ordering until I found out the adaptive cruise is missing from the new HD's. I am taking a step back to think it through. My wife does not want to have a vehicle without it and I'm not sure I do either. We just completed a 1600 mile trip with our Ford pulling our 16K plus pound fifth wheel and I used it the entire trip. When the brakes are applied while using the cruise the system also applies the trailer brakes. With all the road construction I just let the adaptive do its thing and keep me a safe distance behind the vehicle in front of me. If I am coming up behind someone who is going slower I just get in the left lane as soon as I can. I have grown to appreciate this feature probably more than any other. I moved to the Ford because of all the towing and safety features and thought this is the one item GM would include. Yes, I can drive without any of that stuff but I am getting older and a little tech help is appreciated.
  5. I'm assuming you are referring to the tanks that replace the original. I preferred the poly because it was cheaper and added less weight. Had a Titan on both a 2012 single rear wheel and a 2015 dually. I installed both myself. It was not easy but doable with some patience and a motorcycle lift to get the old one out and new one in. The only problem I had with the tanks was some spit back when fueling. I learned to shut off the pump as soon as I heard it nearing full and then squeezed in the rest a little at a time. I would bet the previous year model tanks will not work on the 2020's. Titan or any other manufacturer will probably have to get their hands on a new truck to design a tank. I would think it will be a while before you see one that works.
  6. New to this forum but not GM's. I have a 17 Ford F350 dually right now which replaced a GMC Duramax dually. I like the Ford but I liked my GM's better so have been closely following the info on the new 2020 HD's. My need for a big truck is to pull our fifth wheel. The only reason I pull it with a dually is because I could not find a well equipped diesel one ton (Denali or King Ranch) in a single rear wheel with enough payload capacity for the hitch weight of my fifth wheel plus my wife and I, our hitch, a 25 gallon transfer tank and one fat Boston Terrier. I am well within the specs for an srw in all areas except the payload. I would love to go back to a single rear wheel as most of the time the truck is my daily driver and I really don't like driving a dually. I saw that GM had increased the GVWR from 11,500 to 12,100 or 12,250, not sure which, for the srw 3500's. Thus my interest. Now to relate to this post. I went to a large GMC dealer today to get more information. The salesman did not have a clue what I was asking and directed me to his in stock 2019's and said he would get me the numbers on those trucks. I said no, I want to know if you have a 2020 coming in the next few weeks that I could see. He went to his sales manger who said they have nothing on the new trucks and could not order any until August. I didn't argue and just left.
