    2019 Silverado 4500 hd, 600 miles on it so far. It pulls my 10000 pound suburban around no problem.

    Are you kidding me...when I measure the size of that truck with my fingers, it’s only 2” long...it’ll need to be 3 times that size.

    When you combine 'new diesel' plus 'bigger than a 1 ton'...the possibilities are endless.

    Congrats on the new truck.

    Why the change in body style from a 3500? What drivetrain does it have?

    It shares the same cab and engine as the 3500, just has a tilt front end, which makes maintenance and repairs a little easier. Monroe is in development of a bed that is 4 inches longer than the 8 foot bed which will cost around 14,000.00. I built a subframe and a headache rack to fill the 4 inch gap and paid 2500.00 for a new takeoff bed. Power train is 6.6 duramax ,allison 2000 auto transmission,Dana 70 front, rear might be a Dana 110 if I’m not mistaken.

    I think he's referring to the fill cap (see front fender)

    How is that thing on fuel? I assume it's an L5P just like the standard pickups have? If so, that kinda sucks because they're STUPID expensive to tune....but it IS possible :D They've been running them at max effort 520hp for a while now and they seem to be holding up quite well, even with the transmissions being stock.

    I want to see this 4000lb slide in, @BigClay has a big one that weighs 2700lbs and the only one I’ve seen bigger that his was @Rox&Mud, not sure what his weighs.

    Twins on the way due in December. Going to be fun starting over my son is 16, and a 5 year old daughter. There is some bigger floor plans out now with twins on the way I’m going to need something bigger.

    Wow! I watched the video, that’s a heck of a slide in. Amazing to say the least, and I like the one piece seamless roof and aluminum construction.

    I don’t see how a normal pickup would still have access to the hitch but if I was going to do a ton of traveling and wanted a slide in, that’d be the one.
