    New toy to tow the V around in style

    As planned, since the V is going to be a dedicated track car, I had to swap my SRT8 Jeep for a new 2011 Sierra Denali AWD so I can tow it in style...

    Crew Cab, Short Bed 6.2 liter AWD loaded with everything: Touchscreen NAV, Rear Entertainment, Backup camera system, Sunroof, Heated/Cooled seats, Power Rear Sliding window, Heated steering wheel

    Got it Wednesday, already debadged it, tinted windows and installed K&N filter

    I don't think you can do worse than my SRT in that sense. So anything would be an upgrade to me

    I just did the K&N drop in. I have them in everything I own as well as a tune. (which is next on the list along with tonneau cover)
    Its probably good for a few extra hp (5-8). I usually go that route instead of a full CAI.

    Maybe after this one, Denali 2500HD with Duramax/Allison is the way to go, but its another 8-10k. Too much truck for my needs right now...

    Yea I looked at a2011 a week a go with 2,000 on the clock they wanted 58,000 for it yet. My truck only has 65,000 miles and it's a ltz so not worth $35,000 more after trade for cooled seats and a back up cam. But I do love a diesel. Any way nice truck.

    Good choice. Your Denali's four year older brother and the young hotshot.
