Just got Trail Boss on Monday, so not alot of driving time so far.

Initial impressions: Trail Boss drives much better than ZR2. Interior on Trail Boss much nicer and much more room than ZR2. Seats in Trail Boss are much more comfortable than ZR2. 

Gas mileage of trail boss so far has about 1 mpg better than ZR2.

Both trucks look good on exterior. ZR2 does have locking rear and front diff, which is helpful for extreme off-roading. 

Trail boss has power sliding rear window, ZR2 has manual sliding window which was a pain while driving.

One disappointment on Trail Boss is the lack of auto-dimming mirror, I am already looking into adding one. I found connector inside of overhead console. Just for a truck that listed over 59k, it should have auto-dimming mirror. For me that is a necessity. Thanks to this forum for giving advice on adding one. 

 

10 speed Transmission huge difference over 8 speed transmission.

Hard to say my exact price I paid for the truck since I traded in. Trail Boss in my area are hard to come by, so dealers not discounting as much. 

If I would have have bought in January, I could have saved about 1,000, since the rebates and conquest cash were higher. But I couldn't find what i wanted in January. 

The Trail Boss I bought was only on the lot for a few hours.

Very nice! 

The more I see of that silver, the more I like it.  Looks really good on these trucks, especially on TB trim level.

 

What engine you go with on this?

Actually it does say right on the paperwork that you signed when you bought the truck. It breaks down what the cost of the Trailboss and your trade in for the ZR2. 
Beautiful color and truck too
