New tow vehicle ready to roll

It took a while, but I recently transferred my custom utility bed to the new 3500HD. Re-installed the hitch and checked clearance, with the fiver slightly nose down, I have 11 inches of clearance. The bed still needs some paint touchup, especially the bumper, but it doesn't look too bad for a 10 year old bed.

Looks like the sides of the beds are an easy reach in Duramax? Better marks on the 10 yr old young rear then on your front bumper.
