Just picked this up last Saturday. Color wasn't on my radar, but I got tired of searching. Apparently it's damn near impossible to find a 2500hd or 1500 with buckets, power rear slider window, and all-terrain or max tow package. Dealer finally found a 1500 max tow with buckets, power rear window, and everything else I wanted. I was on the brink of ordering but I have been borrowing my father's rides...totalled the last car. Anyway with the amt of miles I drive (150-250 per day) I figured the 1500 max tow would suit me to save some mpgs compared to the hd gasser. Happy with my decision. Getting used to the color still. Cayenne metallic. I love the new tow mirrors. Plans are tint, bed cover, level, 33s, exhaust, tune, DONE!

Thanks everyone. I am enjoying it. The only thing I hate is the 6spd. I figured it would be great with 3.73s the max tow offers but it shifts too damn much. I miss my 4spd. The torque management makes these trucks feel so restricted. Let's go tune!

I hated my 6 speed until I tuned it, now I like it better than my 4 speeds. Great looking truck btw, I love that color!

Tune it is then! I do plan on much hated black wheels but I've always loved them. I might try plasti-dipping the stock 20s for now. I'm not a flashy chrome guy so it's the only other direction. The color is growing on me haha. It is different but so was my brown 07.

Saw your trans went out, what kind of maintenance had you done up to this point? Was the trans temp staying at 200 or was it getting hot? I've been reading that people are doing the trans thermostat delete on these because they say the heat kills these easily.
