I test drove an 05 a month or so ago. They have really made some improvements over the 04's. I especially like the coil springs in front for a smoother ride and a much smaller turning radius. I was at my bank yesterday checking on getting a loan for one.

Great looking trucks! You guys need to let me at least quote you a price. I might be able to save you some $$$.

Klaw, thats exactly what I ordered, suppose to be here early next month, I am trading my 04 in, its just like it, with the exception of a few modifications

Matt, I would let you bid one out, but I built the dealers house, so I feel obligated to do business with him, plus he really takes care of my fleet, incl my Duramaxes and Cummings with free oil changes, otherwise definatly would give you a shot.

Pics of the 04.

I like the long bed for the longer wheel base. I would never do the short bed. My truck is mostly used on the highway towing the boat. Very little tight turning.

I ordered the short bed this time, to me it looks like a dually on steroids. The 05 turns so much better than my 04, 5 plus feet better, and will even be better with the shorter box. This will drastically help me when turning with the boat. Ive got DPPI dual exhaust coming, another EDGE Module, AFE proguard intake filter and box, carbon fiber bug deflector, and 4 white sunshades on the windows. Like a kid in a candy store, can't wait.
