First real test of the truck was today on my maintenance route. It pulled the trailer awesome, its a lot smoother than my gasser was.

Things I don't like: The tailgate has that dumb curve to it and when I lower it, it hits the jaclk on the trailer. It will probably do it with all my trailers. The tow/haul button isn't on the shifter, its under the radio. I don't love the mirrors but I'm sure I will get used to them.

Other than that, it is awesome, the brake controller it came with is a ton better than the last one I had to install in my 2500.

Thanks man! The crew cab is pretty awesome, I like the look of the shorter cab better, but theres quite a bit of room in this. Although its usually only myself or myself and my worker. It'll be nice when we go up north camping, or go on atv trips.

Yea mines just a turn dial with a neutral button. Wonder why?

I wish these work trucks came with plastic/rubber floors and not carpet.

I absolutely love the rubber floors because salt goes crazy on carpet in the winter. Now I can just scrub it a bit and vacuum it all out. Its also a pretty smooth surface so little things don't get lodged in corners. I put some carpets down for now but they slide around a little because they aren't fastened.

As for the 4x4 stick selector I'm not sure. Is yours a Laramie or SLT or something? Do you switch into 4wd when you're moving or stopped?

i press the Neutral button while coasting at about 3 mph in Neutral and it switches over.

You have rubber floors?
