One small step for man, one giant leap for me. Manwithnorv is now ManwithTruck. We made this purchase yesterday. 2018 GMC 3500HD Denali Duramax DRW. Finally getting closer

Thats a great looking truck. I would seriously consider looking into deletes as soon as the warranty is up.

I assume a 5'er is in your future? If I was a "truck" guy I would definitely go the 5'er route. I think you get a better layout.
Good luck!

You'll have to explain this one cause I'm interested but not up to speed.

Well I'm gonna tell you. I would not have bought this truck yesterday and I would not have known how to go about this without the support from this forum. I know it's been tiresome for some but I appreciate everyone helping along the way. Thanks. Short of a medical / health change, there ain't no turning back now.

Not a bad truck for being a Chubby.


I'm sure you will love it. Can't go wrong with a DRW. Did I miss the gears? That will tell how heavy you're looking at towing.


Some like to delete emissions. I've been this route and would only recommend going there if you have to. I wouldn't worry about it until you have to.

Egr is really the only one i feel should be done proactively. No one is going to convince me its good for an engine to run exhaust through it. I will not own a truck out of warranty with a functioning egr system. This winter ill be redoing the crank case breathers on my harley to get rid of the nonsense being fed back into the motor.

Because of the use of DEF. EGR has been greatly reduced.

Brand new truck under warranty. Absolutely DON'T touch the emissions system.

Drive it, Enjoy it, and don't forget to refill the DEF every now and then
