Any interior changes for 2010 or 2011?

Vented or cooled leather seats and more storage areas may sway me toward a new gm.

The 2009 tahoes, escalades, etc all have heated and cooled seats, so it wouldnt take much to add them to the silverados/sierras

We were on a road trip with our toy hauler, during the trip i got the go ahead to update the truck. I spoke with a dealer from gmc, he gave a lot of info, many co-workers have bought thier gmc's from this guy, he is very straight and not like a typical dealer.
early 2010: stock exhuast brake, will offer a short bed 1 ton, not much other changes.
Later 2010: after mandated emission standards, don't remember the date he gave, they will add the urea injection after the DPF, which will add money to the cost, around a couple thousand, urea tank should be big enough to follow oil change intervals.
He didn't say anything about 2011.

At work we drive fire engines that weigh 42000-50000 pounds, and the newer ones all have torsion bar front suspension. Even the 78000 lbs trucks have torsion bar. Just a side thought as to ? why they would change to springs to increase front capacity without changing to solid axle.

We(soon to be wife and i) visisted a chevy stealership today and test drove a 09 2500 LB, very nice, they wanted my 02 for trade and they wanted business bad, they won't be closing. I'm still driving the 02.

Still need to determine some things; color, 2500 vs 3500, gmc vs chev, long bed vs short.

Beefed IFS. The picture I saw looked coil spring and t-bar, might be a track bar though, hard to tell.

I've been looking for a Left over 08 but choices are getting Slim!

I was wondering What the deal was with the "tabili track"on the 09's,i thought i read somewhere that you guys were saying to try and find an 08 because of this Stability Track thingy Not being good on Lifted trucks??? I have been looking for info on it but can't find Squat!

Yes Urea is another reason to go with the 09 or last year to NOT have Urea injection ,Just one more thing to worry about :~(

What do you guys Know about the Stabili Track ? How Can you get around it ?

Sorry not trying to get off topic,This info would have a Lot to do with making the correct choice for you!

Lead Foot -
Yeah I'm looking for the same thing, however I haven't heard of any way around it at the moment. I guess at worse case you turn it off everytime you turn on your truck. Is it a PITA...maybe but only takes seconds. It is hard finding an '08 in the exact configuation I want.

Now the stock shocks are a disgrace- Bilsteins should be from the factory.
I thought that all Z-71's have bilseins from the factory.
