If you have not ACTUALLY driven a new 3500, I suggest you do.


My 2020 3500 SRW rides smoother than the '18 2500 I traded, and didn't need airbags as the '18 did.

Correct, new truck is not bagged.

No i wouldn't buy an Anderson hitch, I believe the PullRite is superior. also the single point hitch will rotate on the ball.

I'm with Gary 100%, I was in the same boat with my '18.
the ONLY difference 2500-3500-SRW with the GM's up to '19 is the rear spring pack. And the 3500 DRW actually has smaller rotors.
