Help me choose guys....

Well, as some of you may know, I'm joining the dark side....: Anywho, I'm trying to decide what combo to get. Im looking at 2 different trucks. Both '06, greystone metallic. One is a CC, SB, LLY, 6 spd. Alli, 60k mi, with heated leather buckets, and bose 6 disc changer, with the puny side mirrors....:





The other is a ext. cab, SB, grey cloth buckets, LBZ 6 spd. Alli, 59k mi, Bose 6 disc changer, with the nice big tow mirrors. I love both these trucks, but I dont know how to outweigh the other. Im hoping some Cheby guys could help me.....:shrug:


'04.5 Chevy 2500HD LLY,Alli, CC, SB, 4x4, Sleeved, Braced, FASS, 4" SS Silverline exh, EGR Blocker, all thanks to MA, EFI Live tuning by me with Edge CTS switching DSP5 tunes, 68mm Danville turbo, ARP Studs with "C" gaskets, Transgo Jr., 20x9 Diamo Karat 8's wrapped in Terra Grapplers, Superlift AAL in rear, Ride Rite Air Bags, some stainless........yeah it shines.

I can tell you this much.. I really miss those large mirrors. but you can always add those.

How do you like the CC on your dually? Would you miss it?

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

Dan, I would go with the 4 door, just my opinion. Although I really like my LBZ, and it seems I have heard alot of complaining about mpg on the LLY's. What is the price difference?

I dont think I would miss my CC much. I always had reg. cabs till I bought my '05 ext. cab. Then all it did was hold my cd case and coats. My dually is the same way. I think the only real decision I have to make is LBZ or LLY. Dont really want an overheater either. The CC is $1k more than the ext. cab. I was wondering how the mileage was on the LLY's compared to the LBZ's Wayne....Ive been thinking about it.....ALOT! Both trucks are awesome though...... I also have been looking at a few LB7's. I know I can change it, but the only thing I hate about them is the low hood. I like the look of the big, tall hood. Just makes it look more like a truck.....:shrug: I know they get awesome mileage too. I made close to a 120-130hp EFI tune for my buddy and he is getting close to 17-18 around home, with winter fuel....:
