Not true. Air suspension hasn’t been a problem since it was redesigned for 5th gens. We own two 5th gens with it, and we live where it gets cold in winter.

@2006m5, you might want to consider upgrading the fuel tank size to 33 gallon, but otherwise it looks like a solid build.

How is durability overall on these trucks...would you say the engine is bulletproof ?

I am waiting on my second one to ship. Read about hemi tick. Otherwise 5.7 is a great engine and the tick isn’t a show stopper. Just a bigger repair than normal

The bigger fuel tank,
also a "19" with no issues on the air suspension.
I like the Off Road Group, and I don't like 20" rims, but thats just me.

they're bulletproof unless you get one that eats it's cam or the exhaust manifolds warp. Both have been known issues for many years, but just about every manufacturer has "known issues".

Yes to all brands have issues
Absolutely true. A good friends 2021 Silverado just ate a couple lifters at 7000 miles and my daughters 2021 Honda SUV is getting a new engine at under 5000 miles.

My 19 Laramie just keeps rolling along. If you're nervous about long term repairs, spring for a $2300 8 yr 125K miles factory service contract. You'll spend a ton more than that to insure your house over the same period.
