    So a few of you may recall the nightmare deal I had earlier in the month on a limited 4x4 (the pic in avatar) we had that was returned for a laundry list of immediate issues.

    Giving it another shot with this limited 4x4, but this ones different in good ways.

    We opted to NOT get a platinum being the leather was to plush for our active lifestyles, and honestly we like the wood look paneling on the doors. The light colored platinum leather was to confusing with the 2 tone effect it had with the black door pieces and dash. Would've preferred full same color leather all over like our BMW has (it's
    White leather all around).

    This car has quite a few unplanned bells and whistles for a limited which are the 302A pack, heavy duty trailer tow, and CCD 22" polished wheels. The 22s actually ride harsher than the normal 20s do, but that's expected and so bit it since they look better.

    Not really sure how many are out there that come from the factory built like this, but I think I got a good deal and signed for $70,500.

    Will take delivery of it tomorrow since they didn't have time to finish prep on it last night.

    Got the same truck but with a bench instead of buckets - love this vehicle

    The blue is amazing in the sun
    I really like the wood interior and it is matte finish so staysclean looking better than high gloss

    Are you sure it has CCD? I thought you couldn’t get that option with Heavy tow? If it does I’d love to know how it does towing

    You can heavy tow on any model, ccd equiooed or otherwise. I hope thats not what the dealer told you. Im surprised you feel the ccd rides worse than the base suspension, but that may change once you get it on different road types.

    to much tongue weight and the picture has your boat way to far forward on the trailer. Can you set it back 6 inches and see how it squats the truck?
    is your boat loaded heavy in the bow area?

    Reminds me of this fella I saw the other day. The trailer designer should be fired!

    Very similar to my Limited Max. Mine has all the options except platinum only options. I love mine. I find the ride with the CCD and 22” to be better than any truck or SUV I’ve owned in the past including a 2013 and 2016 Denali.

    I hate to argue, but the trailer was professional setup buy the boat manufacturer. It is "perfectly placed on the trailer. The tongue weight is between 10-15% of the overall weight of the boat/trailer combo.

    To answer the questions about is the boat bow heavy. The boat isn't any heavier in the bow than most other boats.

    I have had this boat for 12 years. Any vehicle without rear load leveling suspension sags.

    My GL550 didn't sag in the rear because it had load leveling suspension.
