Upgraded from my 2016 GMC Canyon Crew Cab All Terrain. We needed a larger vehicle for our family.

Got a good price on trade in, good price on the truck and my brothers GM Employee Discount.

So, I now own a 2022 Trail Boss w/ 6.2L. It has the Auto Start/Stop but doesn't seem to have the DFM system or Sport mode. Got it straight off the showroom floor with 2 miles on the odometer.

Parts On Hand;
-Husky Fender Well Liners...............................................................................[INSTALLED]
-K&N 57-3108 (Intake Elbow and Air Filter for OEM Airbox)............[INSTALLED]
-JLT Oil Catch Can...............................................................................................[INSTALLED]
-Hopkins inSIGHT trailer brake controller
-TAC Side Steps....................................................................................................[INSTALLED]
-Gibson Exhaust PN-65692
-Tonneau Cover....................................................................................................[INSTALLED]
-Fog Lights (OEM kit).........................................................................................[INSTALLED]
-Sound Dampening Material
-8" Screen and Controls (project)

Next Items;
-Spray-In Bed Liner
-In-Track Rain Guards
-ATI 10% Underdrive Balancer Pulley
-Soler 91MM Throttle Body
-Upgraded Door Speakers (MTX possibly)

Pondering;
-Headers (not sure if Short or Long)
-STILLEN Cold Air Scoop

Dunno, seems pretty basic IMO, seems like a fun truck, only at 140 miles on the odometer, and haven't given it a WOT pull yet, probably wait till close to 500 mile mark, but does seem rather peppy for a half ton truck.

When I went to do the trade in.

22.7MPG stock after highway driving this weekend. Not bad for a non-DFM 6.2L.

Things have gotten out of hand.

More parts ordered;
-TAC Sidewinder steps
-Gibson Exhaust

Couldn't pass up on the exhaust, it was $365 shipped for the Gibson 64692 kit. It's only T409 stainless, but should last me the life of the truck.
