This truck is great, the wide stance make you feel safe. The handling is great, there is hardly any roal in the suspension when cornering. Believe it or not I jumped my new truck 1 week after I got it. But not purposly. When I did so the landing hurt but the truck was fine. The balance was tweeked but I checked it out and nothing was broke or bent. It drives the same as before.
I love the remote start. The display for the XM radio is great and easy to read. And the aux pre out in the front of the radio is nice.
It needs a 5 or 6 speed trany. The 5.3 just feels like it strugles when your foot is not in it hard. The bed needs to be at least 2" longer. Getting an ATV in the back with the tailgate closed is a problem. One day GM should cosider making their wheelwells rounder for larger wider tires.
