11' GMC 3500 LML 4x4

Well, I added one to the fleet. After getting my wife an 11' Suburban LTZ I decided to go look at the GMC 3500 with the same bells and whistles. My 03' Dodge 3500 6 speed was what I was looking to replace. After test driving one and getting 0% financing. I drove it home and now have 300+ miles on it. So far I love it. And I ended up keeping my Dodge (it's paid off) so now I have 2 tow rigs.

Im working on getting some miles on it and will be towing 11,000ish LBS in 2 weeks about 7 hrs away from North of Buffalo to Tremont PA for an offroading event. I usually get 14mpg from my Dodge with the load I carry and the route that I drive. So we'll see what the GMC does.

I think it is nice you can park your new truck in the flower garden. Please measure the rear of the bed rails and let us or me know the figure. I can't believe our fifthwheel would work on the new trucks. Might not be flowers but nice and yellow

Not sure what your looking for. The height at the tailgate is 21.5" and the rails are 62" wide.

I pulled about 5000 pounds harrow two hours this past monday with my new lml and only got around 10mpg, so I wouldn't expect any fireworks with regaurds to fuel economy. As far as towing it did excellent couldn't even tell it was back there. I know 5000 pounds is half of what your towing but I figured i would just give you a heads up as to what you might get.
