Well it's been 2 weeks since I took delivery now, but here is what I've been waiting four months for.

Lariat 6.2L CC 4X4 SB 4.30 E-locker White Platinum Metallic/Black Leather.

I'm really loving this thing.

Take a look.

I AM loving this thing. Already have almost 2K miles on 'er. A road trip back from the dealer and another holiday road trip to visit family.
Need to do some winter camping or something, see how she tows.

Congrats on the new truck!

I don't think you'll be disappointed in its towing abilities, the transmission is pretty impressive.

Thumbs up Awesome

Awesome! Congrats...

Yeah...towing with the 4.30 gears and tranny combo...is really a fun experience.

Just a word of caution: While towing in Tow/Haul mode...the downshifts can be aggressive. Something to think about in a sudden stop situation or riding down a mountain pass.

Good point....and to add to that, make sure you don't use T/H in 2wd in snowy conditions. It will get you WAY out of shape WAY quick when it downshifts....ask me how I know.

I love mine, am at 8.6mpg's right now but I'm still enjoying the heck out of my 93 tune. I need to drop it back to the 87 economy and see if it helps me any, but prior to the tune/tires, I was getting around 10-11 city, 14hwy. I think I'm a worst case scenario, I work from home and drive my truck short trips (~3 miles) a couple times a day and it's all hills and stop and go where I live...
