Dealership called me today. My new chassis arrived! Now to wait on the KUV body.
agreed, I had a 2003 diesel duramax.. it doesnt pay to get diesel anymore, and several friends bought gas engines for their new trucks...plus the gas engines now you have tow/haul mode to get you going with a big load..The new 7.3 gas. I can buy a lot of fuel for the price of the diesel.
I went to look at it today. The order got messed up somewhere, it showed up being 2wd. So they are putting a order in for a replacement 4x4 chassis. Probably going to be July or august now. What a bummer. But it’s not like I needed it today anyway. No hard feelings with the dealership, their paperwork was correct, someone at the factory messed up.That things beautiful, I'd love to get a new truck but these new Fords and service bodies are insane. Running a studded 6.0 till the wheels fall off lol.
Mine will be the 6’ interior height.That thing would be beautiful with a slightly higher box. Not only is it nice not to be hunched up in a van, you'll have access to the tools from outside which is awesome, less climbing in and out. I'd get a little crane in the back for loading larger things.
I'd make sure to buy a box that has key holes on each lock. I met a guy who got locked out of one of the key fob ones on a job and wasted hours in a customers driveway waiting for a locksmith to get the propress lol.
Buddy has the same rig except one addition, he put tool boxes on top of koenig, which brings the top of box even with the cab. then he put that cover over it.
Fresh road tar seems to stick well. Maybe thin some out a little with some heavy motor oil or turpentine and then apply.This is going to be my 15 year truck. So since I’m super busy I figured but once cry once. Only down fall is the KUV is steel. But I’ll make sure it gets oiled twice a year.
