Hmm, maybe I am wrong, but I thought I was told that they did not offer the Vortec Max and Z71 package together like that? Nice looking truck tho!

Thank you for that. I remember (now) reading that before. I remember now, you could not get max Towing (NHT) with the z71. I just got them mixed up. Sorry

First, thank you all, second, plans? Shoot I just want to get back on the road…lol…
So the full list on this truck is,
2008, Z71, 10,000 lb towing/w intergrated braking, 20” wheels, all leather, power through the wazoo. My only big complaint is the constant buzzing or whirring sound coming from the stereo more specifically the — DVD player navigation

You are stretching that 10,000lb towing a couple grand above the limit methinks.

Rip out the DVD player nav and put in a different head unit
