It was hard to find one. Three were sold out from under us or they used the old bait and switch saying they had one on the lot only to find out they had already sold it or didn’t actually have one on the lot. I ended up purchasing one that was in transit from the factory. So, only have seen pictures and window stickers if the one I purchased. I did get to see a black one, but that was my last option color. Just to hard to keep clean. IMO. It arrives tomorrow.

So, my truck was delivered today. I’m a little worried due to how high the side bed rails are. On my 2009 Chevrolet the top of the bed rails were 57” from the ground to the top of the bed rails at the rear. On the new truck it’s 59 1/2” to the top rail at the rear. I can’t hookup due to my 5er is up on jacks waiting for my brake assembly’s and rear bearing seals to arrive for repairs. I know I have adjustments on my Reese hitch and on the 5er front hitch. Don’t want to have to be towing with the front to high. So, until my stuff gets in and I can finish the repairs I’ll just have to worry I guess. Nice truck though.

Just curious the 4.10 was standard then it changed to the 3.73 with the 4.10 optional. Did not know what the new ones have. Are you sure it is a 5.20 ratio?

Glad you finally got it. And I know what you mean about the height, they are going crazy with how high they are making them. You definitely need running boards to even climb into the cab. I am pretty sure they put on the bumper and side steps because there was other way to get into the bed.

Good news!

Well I couldn’t stand to wait until my brakes and seals come in next week. So, today I put all the old stuff back together and mounted the wheels and got everything off the jacks. I hooked up to the new truck. I pulled it just up the road where it’s level (rural two lane road). I’m sitting 23” in the rear of the 5er and 27” at the front of the 5er. I have 6 1/2” between the bottom of the front Of the 5er to the bed rails. So, I can live with 4” low in the rear. I actually have more clearance on the new truck than I did my 2009 truck. Here’s a couple of pictures.

I ordered running boards yesterday.
