    local dealer got some tradesmen 6.4’s in with the new body style and man it’s tempting to trade my 14 6.4 in. But i probably will wait a little while since I’m only at 130,000 miles on this thing! I wanna see if I can make it to 200k. How many others are feeling the same way I am? Lol

    As much as I'd like the new transmission. ..and the new truck, my 15 is paid for and has the maxcare lifetime warranty. Could never justify a new one that I can't get the warranty on now.

    Mine is a 17 and just rolled over 12k. It isn't my primary vehicle but those 19s are really growing on me especially the interior.

    I personally am not a fan of the new front end. The interior is nice on the higher trim levels but I’m pretty happy with my 2018 PW with the luxury package as well. Don’t think I’ll be looking at getting a new HD till the actual 5th gen comes out with the new body, and hopefully re-refreshed front end...

    I think this one is pretty sharp:

    I'm interested in the 8 speed more than styling. But I'm more interested in paying mine off and being debt free.

    right there with ya buddy I wasn't really digging the 5th gens they look like a upgraded 4th gen to me well the 3/4 tons do until I drove one with the 6.4 8 speed an was really liking it, my 16 has been damn good to me though with no problems so I'll keep for as long as I can
