Re: What are you towing with?

Very cool.

Quad cab too. That would fit Varmints. I am jealous.

However, does it fit in the garage? With everything else?

Sadly, it does not fit in the garage. At 24 feet long, missed it by a foot. Elevation is slightly off too.

Yes, rides like shit empty. Does have air ride seats though which helps a bunch.

Top speed is well over 70, although that is faster than I can tow in CA without getting a ticket.

The C7 is a good motor, I specifically wanted the 8.3 Cummins since it is nearly identical to my 12 valve 5.9...including the manual p7100 bosch pump which I am already very familiar with.

The 8.3 is also already more torque than a cruise ship, so it will basically not get turned up much...I'm thinking 1200lbft tops.

Bonus...only 30k miles on it...chances are good the engine, trans, and axles will outlive me.

I'm rather jealous. That's a sweet rig.

I'm a bit surprised that CA doesn't bury you under so many regulations over that, it ends up not being feasible/affordable.
