Could be wrong. But I am pretty sure you can get a Sierra Denali in 2wd or awd. A lot of the Texas or southern states denalis are 2wd

Scott, like you said you'll be fine. Here's my '96 Tahoe 4wd. I even push a SnowSport plow with it. I did need to figure out some custom soft bump stops and add air helpers in the back for the boat. You won't need that with the factory leveling system intact.

BTW that's a nice Denali and post up new pics with the wheels on it when you get them!

They only stock/sell AWD in the snowbelt. Down south you can get either, but pay a premium for AWD.

Why do you have NISSAN Titan/ Armada wheels on your CHEVY.

Good eye.
Because they fit the +25 minimum offset I needed and they look good. They were on the short list along with some NNBS Chevy 18s and 20s and these popped up in my price range first. Plus they're all aluminum where most of the new Chevy wheels are plastic cladding.

Well they do look good on your truck, unfortunately nissan has also went with the cladding wheels on certain models. My sister just bought a new limited ford escape and my bil about had a fit after the sale when he actually tapped on wheels and found out they are plastic hubcaps glued on.

Thanks.
Yeah it's an industry-wide epidemic. My custom shop is owned by a Dodge dealer and theirs are plastic now too. Some brands are even steelies underneath instead of aluminum. Sad when they start to rust on the exposed edges. The plastic is bonded on with some adhesive expanding foam type stuff so you destroy the plastic taking it off to sandblast and repaint. $650-1000 apiece for replacements.
