See if the dealer will let you scoot around in an lml over the week end, see if it helps you put it in perspective more as to what you want.

Keep what you have or get a new one.Either way you'll have the best. I like how you think about slap in all the bells n whistles on that available!

I definitely want and like the newer creature comforts the newer trucks offer. Kinda need a crew cab, little dude is getting bigger and the ext cab is getting small.

If I do pull the trigger on a new rig. I plan on doing full deletes, exhaust, tuning, lift pump, steering and trans work. Maybe a Cognito level kit or 2-4" lift, either way the truck will get new shocks and upper control arms. Might eventually run an s472 as a single or s475 over stock.
Haha, see? Mods are already starting to pile up. I want a '15 or newer too, but with money I have in mine now there's no way I'm trading it in or selling. I could put it all back to stock and sell the parts separate but I'm not interested in doing that. So I told myself in two years if I'm able to I'm going to get a new one and keep mine. Two duramaxs would be nice.

I did pretty much what he suggested last week and spent around 6500 for just parts. Can't imagine what it would all cost if someone else did the work.

I like my LLY but will always have the want for a newer truck. Every time i see an LML around town, it makes me want one even more....but then I think about having that big payment and realize im happy with my LLY

So would a 15' Denali interior be quieter then a 14' Denali ? I just drove a low miles 14' and actually like the interior better ?

Yes a 15 will be much quieter then the 14
