I may not need the bed at all - just the axle;  we were thinking of going to a smaller flatbed, but Gary's advice above is good.  I need to price out a flatbed - I had figured around $1500 to $2000.  Now he's got me concerned, LOL.


I'll PM you.  Thanks!

Hey Hoss,

Its Dark Garnet Red (more of a maroon color).  I'm not 100% sure what the rear ratio is, but I don't think its a 4.10.  I want to say its a 3.54 IIRC.  I'll check tonight.

Neighbor had an MDX; older than a 2011 but he had over 200k on it and it never spent time in the shop.  He drove it everyday, while his wife's Camry had several problems.  Interior held up well too.  I liked the Honda Pilot body style better personally, but I couldn't fault his MDX for reliability.

Free oil changes here on my Ford, and the dealer does them at 4-5k intervals.  I have 16k on my 2017 Powerstroke since June (4 oil changes so far) .  The 'free oil change' deal is turning out to be a fair amount of savings with the miles I drive.  Would love more range and may have to see what underbed aux fuel tank options are available for the Fords, but I will never run anything in the bed.  I find myself needing to use it frequently enough hauling a quad or sofa or..., and I like being able to shut the tailgate with a load.

In Topic: Isspro Performance Gauge Install 2011 Duramax

That name brings back memories of my old '03 Dmax dually.  Years ago, Michael used to bracket race his old Ford Dually diesel (pre-powerstroke if I recall), and it always seemed like he and I got paired up.  I got out of the sport when the kids got expensive, but back then we must have been some of the slowest trucks down the track, but that guy was unbeatable - soooo consistent pass after pass.  Nice guy too!


Its been too long now, but I remember spending a night in the garage messing with bulb covers and various combos until I had my Isspro's matching the weird Chevy dash light color awful close  What you're doing with that '11 is cool - those gauges look like they came factory OEM in that truck.
