I like the wheels, Other than that seems to be the same truck I have. I wonder what the fuel economy will really be when they hit the roads.

I really like the new LML trucks coming out, and can't wait to see one on the lot and give it a drive!

I just downgraded from a new farm tractor to a used one just to free-up a few extra bucks to hopefully be able to buy a new truck in ~1-2 years. The new HD looks like the truck great full size GM started building, but now has finally finished. Let's face it, the previous gen trucks just din't have the suspension ford does, but GM has the better drivetrain. Now GM has the suspension to go with it.

are they still using the same weak tie rods? I didn't catch it in the video but was hoping that would change.

from some of the pictures i have seen of the comparison of the new frame vs. old, it appears that they still use the old 1/2" ones, if they are bigger they arent much bigger...
