    Nice looking truck. I have a '15 at work and I love it, of course I came out of a CVPI so it was like rags to riches. My only complaint is the incessant rattle from my rifle/shotgun rack, but that's an upfitter issue. We have an open stretch of highway in our city and it cruises like a Cadillac at 90+, I'm sure without all the associated junk in the back it would do more. I love the way it handles over my '09 LTZ.

    Ive been looking into the PPV from my current denali. Can anyone confirm the ride is pretty rough? I know she corners like a beaut but what about day to day town/city driving? Mine will be 4 wd.

    How much is a PPV and then what is the cost to civilianize it (except for the deer catcher on the front)?

    How difficult was the center console install? We're all the plugs there when you pulled up the rubber flooring?

    Day to day in city driving - it is comfortable for what it provides - very sure footed handling. It drives like a high performance sedan would with a sprots suspension versus the land yacht suspension you get with the stock truck.

    On the freeway it is a sure footed long distance bruiser.

    I paid $36kish in 2015 and the upgrades cost about another $4k or so.

    See the photos earlier it the thread. Very simple operation. I installed a GMC Denali center console - I wanted the flip top cup holders - cigarette lighter, 110V and USB plugged into the plugs that came out of the PPV dash. I think some wires needed to be altered, I don't recall now.

    Do you by any chance remember how the wiring was for your center console? Here's my situation. Seems like wires were cut while changing this over to a squad car and I can't seem to figure it out. Any help would be appreciated. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
