Also, I hate when my truck is in regen, so I'll take the urea and 75% less regens. Could go on about the other improvements.......But I for one am sure happy to see em!
And I'll take all the power they want to give me,having it doesn't mean you have to use it all (but I probably will) but it's nice to have if you do.I for one think it will be great not having to work the truck so hard to get back up to speed when you have to stop on a long hill.If these trucks are getting to powerful for some people,maybe they should buy a gasser.Lucky for us,GM knows that almost everyone wants more power and won't cut it back just to make a few happy.

ALL 4wd dually and SRW 3500s trucks with the Duramax/Allison get the 6k FGAWR. Wheels not a factor, all duallys get the 17s.
