I’d love to have an lml. 16 only tho because the refinements made. But if I get anything that new it’ll be a brand new half ton with the 6.2 and keep the LLZ. I think fixed vane has a lot to do with it. I’m just gonna keep it for a while and mod it as money allows and see how I like it.

Lets be honest, its an LBZ. No need for fancy designations.

they all feel the same when you blow the tires off from a roll in 2wd

seriously, you start learning to drive different to make 2wd stick or are constantly making sure the front end is tip top/setup so you can use 4wd more.

to me, if you are still on stock turbo, stock fueling, tuned and stock trans, this is like splitting hairs.

I know it is. Iím guessing the difference Iím feeling is vgt vs fixed. Instant vs a kick. I learned pretty good in the lb7 how to keep the rear end at bay and using 4x4 when I needed it. Iím keeping a diesel either way if I get anything else.

100hp tune isnít shit either.. none of my trucks have felt fast on a 100hp tune. 150 starts to feel decent. I ran 13.6 on a 150 tune in the lmm

If you dont know what Kind of shape your transmission is in, the. i would start there. All the power in the world is great, but if you cant put it to the ground it doesnt matter....
