I test drove about 20 GMCs and Chevys. I finally decided on my 2011 GMC 4x4 crew cab 1500. It's got a 5.3. It's very peppy and pulls a loaded two-horse trailer great. Also, this time of year if you buy brand new you can use dealer rebates and 0% 72 month financing on a 2011 model. They are really trying to get rid of them to make room for the 2012's. This time of year you can just about buy a brand new one for the same price as a used one.
****, funny thing is I won't be ready to start looking till about maybe early feb. You think I will still be able to get the deal I would get before end of this yr in february?

No. If you are waiting on a tax return for a down payment, in most cases the dealership can use the rebates as the down payment. I bought a vehicle in January once and in February once and didn't get any rebates or incentives one either one. I bought my truck in September and got over $5,500 in rebates, and the deals are even better now in December. This is the prime time of the year to buy a new truck. Look at a few dealership websites close to you and they will have what specials are going on there on the website. I will absolutely never buy a new truck at the beginning of the year again.

one thing I have going for me is going thru USAA and using their price quote as leverage. With usaa you get 3-5,000 off of what the dealer wants and I don't think it matters what time of year. I just wished I was ready to go get it before the end of year and have some other things going on that I want to finish up before I get the truck.

Google it and you will find out alot about it. I think you have to be in the military or be a dependent or somethign to be able to use their services. They supposed to be top of the line very competitive and have the best rates as far as insurance, buying a vehicle, house ins, ect

You're better off with smaller tires and bigger wheels. In addition to less rotating weight (which equals better mileage) you get a better ride.

And, quite frankly, a wider selection of tires to choose from.

It's still not set up for them. The 20s and 22s are accessories, even if they come from the dealer.

You can buy an aftermarket programmer and tweak the onboard computer's settings, of course, but you're still better off with normal-sized wheels.

#facepalm

In rereading, it appears I typed the exact opposite of what I thought I was typing. Is what happens when I type on 4-5 hours sleep.

Bigger tires, normal wheels
Bigger tires, normal wheels
Bigger tires, normal wheels

To quote a character of the author Lewis Carroll, what I tell you three times is true.

Apologies for any confusion.

And now, I shall go to bed.
