Picking up my new refreshed Silverado RST 3.0 Duramax with NHT tomorrow! Little over 3 months from the day I ordered it.

[image]

I traded in a 2019 Silverado 1500 with the Z71 package and got this guy with the NHT package and they ride completely different. The Z71 was pretty soft and this rides nice and firm and flat and just feels rock solid. I stayed around 55 for the 140 mile trip home and she showed a smidge over 33 mpg.
The mirrors are pretty big but I bought it to tow and we'll see how it does pulling 7,500 lbs up the mountains.
The new interior and so nice too. Really love it so far but it's going to take a wile to get used to those big ace mirrors!

Just google rv.net photo posting! You got until tomorrow to figure it out! It's actually quite easy, no sizing, just drag or choose a pic.

If no pic in the next few days, agree, "didn't happen"!!

That's awesome, but I want to see a pic of the '54.
Is it an original Napco truck (idk if Napco was around yet in '54) or do you have it on a newer chassis.

Not a Napco,Dad bought it in 64. My first car. Napcos were only on 3/4 ton or bigger Chevys in 54. Original frame but with Dana 44 front and corporate 12 bolt rear. I don't tow with it anymore, was just moving trailers around.
