If you need a gooseneck style hitch for it, this is the winner by far. It is what I have in the Dodge. The beauty is no rails in the bed, is fairly simple to install, and is extremely simple to flip the ball over and have a full bed with no obstructions.

Add a set of the Firestone Ride-Rite air bags on the back. You will appreciate the comfier ride while towing and the ability to level the truck/trailer.

Nice looking truck. Hope it lives another 300k miles for you.
I sell this hitch and have had two of them myself, nice stuff

I added the companion hitch to haul our new 5th wheel. You just can't beat the set-up.

I picked these because they overlap the door seam, so moving in and out you don't get anything on the carpet. The weathertechs are actually more $$$ then the catch-alls you are talking about.

Check out DieselPlace.com for Ideas or concerns about your truck. I have an 05 duramax and I love it. I tow two jeeps on a gooseneck without hardly knowing its there. There is a ton of info on that site for all years of Duramax trucks. Nice buy, I hope you enjoy it.

Mind if i ask how much you paid for them....I just bought some from zebart for my new dodge....I had to pay 112 and they were back ordered.....Im guessing you found them really cheap on the internet somewhere and im going to feel really stupid right?


Oh and you should have got a dodge lol

well, i dont feel so bad now.....I still need to get the back ones thought....


The new hemi will do fine for everything i need todo......What i should have said was "should have bought a cummins"




Accualy, i could have bought a 03 duramax with 115000 and it was loaded. (GMC) long bed four door 4x4....ect ect ect....it was sweet. He was going to let me have it for his payoff. I think it was like 13k....I kinda wish i would have bought it. Oh well, at the time i didnt know what i wanted todo and i only had like a week top act on it. I like my dodge though and it had alot of power for a half ton....I still have yet to tow with it though.

Anyways, nice truck....Ill let you know if i need you to tow my hemi lol

Looks like a good truck. I had a 02 for a brief time before I bought my 07. They are great trucks and the engine and trans are very reliable. Just one piece of advice, before you drive and tow alot check the transfer case fluid. I've had alot of them with no oil left in them just like my 2002. The cause is a small hole in the transfer case on the right side of the case. I just warn about this because I have seen them with this problem many times. My 02 chevy only had 120,000 miles and a friends only had 110,000 miles when the hole appeared in the case. Also see it too often working in a chevy dealer. If it is ok I recommend synthetic atf in the transfer case.

you will be happy with this truck. The DMax is a great engine. I think you made a wise choice I would pick a DMax over a Dodge any day...(cummins is great...dodge...not so much)

You can't complain about that much. I wish I could get the B20 over here.
