I hope that's a ford box on it. I hate those tail lights.

I highly doubt this....2018 model year is only like 2-3 months away, and GM hasnt even unveiled the T1xx yet.
I'm not sure if it is planned for a mid year change or not, I think the timing is a bit strange myself but I have been told MY 18. I do know I am currently developing weld procedures for the rocker panels at our machine builders and they will be installed in our facility in September.

They have them camo'd to look like the F150s. They caught a lot of shit for it.
I wondered about that. I recently saw a spy pic from the front and I'd swear it looked like it had an oval grille emblem behind the grille mask.

That definitely does look like a Ferd emblem in the front there. Hmmm.

Let's keep this post rolling it a good direction. How are they holding up? Who's all had issues?

I have talked to 2 guys that had issues. The first one is getting a random fuel temp code. The other had a overheating issue. Ended up being a frost plug where is was not suppose to be on the head. GM replaced the whole motor.

Close to 60k on mine, all towing... No issues so far... I love the shifting, it's not trying to get into the highest gear possible as quickly as possible any more...

What's the fuel mileage like ? I am getting a mes Denali hd next month, and I am debating either to lift or leave it stock. Since there's no deletes for it yet

As of right now I'm Avg 11.5 towing the welding rig about 6-8k depending on the day with materials...
Haven't had any good trips without the trailer so not sure there
That's 70-80mph Almost entirely highway driving
The old LBZ rig used to get 13-14mpg :D
All in all I still absolutely love this new truck
Only complaints are it is to dang quite and it pulls the load so well I forget I have a trailer sometimes lol

Has it increased with mileage on the truck?
I'm just about to roll over 10k
Just filled up my 4th tank full of Def so I'm averaging 2500-3000 miles a tank
All towing though
