.The front bumper is the only thing I have never liked about my truck.

This is GMs announcement

http://www.chevrolet.com/pages/open/...d.do#Downloads
From the op linked article "A new 36-gallon fuel tank extends the driving range of the 2011Silverado HD. Itís standard on long and short box versions. GM promises up to a country-crossing 680-mile range, or about 18.8 mpg."

Wait a second.. You CAN or CAN NOT get a 2500 Reg Cab with a short bed? I thought Reg Cabs were long bed only?

Disappointed they are still using torsion bars on the IFS. Really wish GM would have gone to coil overs.

On the other hand the numbers look impressive across the board!

YES. You will be able to get a regular cab SHORT BED.

But they come in 2wd only. No 4x4 reg cab/short bed.

the bolt pattern change is due to the heavier capacities, just like the ford now has a different bolt pattern due to its heavier weight ratings, i would almost bet that it will be a 8 on 220 mm pattern
