Brought it home yesterday and a 30 mile trip from dealer.
Don't know pin weight but ordered a device that slips into truck receiver that has a gauge and gives you weight on ball

Certainly different from 3/4 ton Duramax. I believe hitch needs a little adjustment because there was a tiny bit of up and down on when moving. I will order Bilstein shocks to replace OEM.

RPM's is 2500 at 60 MPH. Equalizer 4-point hitch and I have always used 5th wheel hitches before so there is a learning curve.

Thanks for the comments.

I put E tires after having D rated tires on a SW 3500. I ran the tires no higher in psi than the D's, typically 45-60 unladen vs loaded on the rear. 55-60 on the front due to the deezal engine. I noticed NO difference in handling etc with E rated tires.

Correct. If you look at the inflation charts for D and E rated tires, you will see that they have the SAME weight ratings at various pressures.

The difference is the E rated tire can be aired up to 80PSI, allowing for more weight carrying capacity.


Putting 10-ply tires on half ton trucks since aught-four.

when it comes time to replace tires on TV, go with LT "E" tires. Huge improvement on tow experience.


The truck came with 20" LRE "E".
