2024 GMC HD Reveal

Here's the new GMC HD. IMO GM needs to ditch the wax coating and go to an e coated frame. Also I prefer the tail lights on the DRW trucks over the SRW trucks assuming GMC will be similar to Chevy.

If I keep it I'm definitely putting a lowering kit on it. 2" would be huge.





Butt Fn Ugly!! LOL




I don't care for how high I have to step to get into this one.




Trying not to be biased but THIS is a good looking truck. 😉

All the new trucks are butt ugly and that new GMC might just take the cake.


Careful the blue text guy is going to be on the attack! :W

I do agree that brown truck is a good looking truck.

So just a reminder that Toyota also identified the need for a window sill arm rest. Go to 3:44 and see that Toyota literally has a padded window sill arm rest.

Regular cabs. The best looking trucks.

So, are you jumping ship to a real truck that does not jam your kidneys into your ribcage every time you run over a highway expansion or control joint?


Not buying a truck just yet.

At highway speeds my truck rides really nice and tracks nice and straight.


LOL...just laying some sheet on ya.


I noticed... LOL

BTW... My parents own a 2017 Chevy Duramax truck so I got a good feel for how that truck rides. Earlier this year pulled their camper to get it inspected and to get some new Goodyears installed.

Just to the right of the red accordion cover, what's that cracked metal?
Never mind, it's a crack in the cement floor below.

Here's some more on the GMC. I do like the tail lights on GMC trucks and would like GM to provide a two tone paint option again.

2023 GMC HD Reveal? Not much of a reveal. They had been revealed on dealers lots since at least 6 weeks ago, I was looking at 2 2500s last Saturday, that I know one was still not sold as of yesterday.

That Ford E coating is not the greatest. It might work great in Texas, in the north not so much. Once it starts peeling off after the first winter ots exposed to brine solution, it comes off in sheets the next.

You're never defecting from Ford regardless, even if GM would start hot dip galvanizing their frames.


1987 Chevy Painted frame
1992 Chevy Hot wax coated frame
1998 Ford Hot wax coated frame
2005 Ford Hot wax coated frame
2012 Ford Painted frame

From my personal experience above the painted frames just held up longer. When I sold my trucks with the hot wax coating the coating was pretty much gone and surface rust was obvious. Mud sticks to the wax coating and is difficult to remove without removing the wax.

Here's a picture of my '12 Ford and a '14 Chevy just taken a few minutes ago.

Enjoy...






Well in the whole big scheme of things since I've never had a frame on a truck fail due to rust despite keeping a few 14 or so years while racking up over 300k miles, and never recieved one dime less either when trading or selling outright because the frame showed some rust, I have other things to spend my time worrying about, like the beer freezing in the dorm fridge as it's expected to drop to the mid 30s tonight.


I've seen some really bad rusted frames on vehicles in the rust belt so it's an issue for some folks.

Just left Cincinnati on Thursday to an outstanding low of 66F tonight here in Texas. Love it! :B
