Yes I'm getting my wheels, tires, bumper, exhaust tip, and steps off. Some of the lift was bent and I have an allowance for aftermarket parts on my insurance. But yeah I'm good. Wasn't really a bad wreck. The reason it was totaled was because the tire front pass tire hit a telephone pole and shoved it back twisting the frame. People told me to go with a v6 but I will lose so much fuel mileage and power, especially when I lift the next one.

I would sure like to get my hands on a motor/trans combo out of one of these trucks for a swap into something older. They have/had one on carpart but they want 10k for it. Not a bad price for a near new motor/trans but a bit out of my price range for something I don't really need, I'll stick with another LS swap haha.

If you are looking for a 4 cyl diesel for a swap, I think the Cummins 2.8 is actually a better choice. Set up specifically for swaps so computer integration won't be a problem.

Big $$ also for that motor, plus I'm not sure if you can tune it or not. I think it might be supported with EFI Live HD.

Its mostly a pipe dream anyway. Either option is looking like 10grand plus .

Yall talking about the 4BT. Very tunable. They can make crazy numbers
Not talking about the 3.9 4bt and those aren't computer controlled which is what I was referring to when I said tuning. Once you have had a common rail diesel. its hard to go back to the old mechanical injection systems, they just aren't as nice to daily, sure they can make power but are usually noisy and smokey.

Lorenzo with SoCal recommended these for Colorado tunes, but did not specify 2018. I'm sure they are working on it:

Said this company is reputable:

All In Truck Performance

432-209-7095


He also recommended:

Duramax Tuner LLC-815-861-5807

Power And Performance Enterprises-337-515-5128

Fleece Performance- 317-286-3573

Ridge Runner Diesel Performance LLC- 854-444-2874

Scott with Screaming diesel is a name he gave me about a year ago. Said he makes good tunes.
