A brand new truck. I will be moving in soon. I'm stacked on some loads right now.

Starting mileage.

I was never a fan of being the 1st driver of a new truck. In my experiences the first 50k miles the truck spends way too much time in the shop sorting out the kinks but then again maybe I just got unlucky. Congratulations to you nonetheless 👏

Congrats I hope it is a good one. Like Daniel says gotta work the bugs out of it. I’ll stick with my old one, it’s broke in.

Hey Big Scott, At least you have dual wheels and no super singles.

Super Singles:

A single, wide wheel substituted for a tandem (two wheel) assembly. The main benefit of a super single is a reduction in weight and lower rolling resistance which provide better fuel economy. The disadvantage is the lack of tire redundancy (or a 'backup tire' in case of a blowout) from which tandem wheels benefit. A tire blowout is more dangerous with a super single and can not be driven on.

She's GORGEOUS, Scott~!!

Love your reflection down the centerline of the grille, under the KW logo . . . looking 'not so' big, anymore, sir!

Congrats, Scott. I just LOVE that new truck smell! Almost as good as PJ's pipes' smell ~!! rofl-3.gif

Congrats on the new truck! Always nice to be the first butt in the seat.

Hopefully you'll have better luck than I did with my new one.

Thanks everyone. I hope to be back in Joplin by Tuesday. I don't have the hours to get back sooner.
