Nice! I really like the sports appearance pkg
Based on the lack of fog lights and the argent steel wheels, it seems to me it is a Tradesman without the Chrome Appearance Group.

In any event.....it is a nice truck.

super awesome that these have high idle enabled already.
Since you’re in TX.....high idle works great for accelerating the A/C operation, too.

been out of the cummins game for a bit.
What’s the score, and how do you play it?
I have missed out the past 20+ years.

Gorgeous truck truck by the way.

I believe this is the first nighttime pic I’ve seen of a 2019.

One thing I see that is apparently new for the 2019 MY is the addition of the additional parking lights integrated into the tow mirrors, unless you have modified it in some way yourself.

Based on the whining from some RAM owners——this will sell trucks out the wazoo, as so many have drooled, jizzzzzzed, and spooooojed over the parking light feature within the mirrors of GM and FoMoCo trucks.

You're correct the parking/turn signals are incorporated into the tow mirrors from the factory.

Also what is pretty cool and last night was the first time I used them are the lights on the mirrors that come on with the cargo light. They are supposed to light down the sides of the truck and trailer.......and boy they do! They are super bright LEDs. You can also open the door of the truck and shine them out the side of the truck if you needed extra light at night to see while parked.

I remember when I was still at home growing up and my dad had a '75 Dodge Truck D100 (it was white with a blue stripe down the side with white stars in it and at the end by the tail light it said "Spirit of '76) and he wired the cargo light with the reverse lights so at night we could load and off load fire wood. It worked pretty good but they weren't LED bright like we have today.:grin2:

went through the owners manual last night... didn't know these trucks had high idle enabled from
the factory via cruise buttons. that was hard to come by back in the day !

still in wonderment on how quiet the truck is, especially inside, and on a low trim model. even
outside, it's way quieter than an of my old 5.9's, and actually a bit more hushed than my buddy's
'17.. averaging around 15 through the 1st 190 miles.

...so am i seeing it right that weathertech doesn't have a set of laserfits for the 19's ?
Reading that made me curious enough to go grab the Weathertech mats we salvaged from the '17 and try them in the '19.

Sure enough, they plopped right in. And why wouldn't they?
I'd guess that they won't fit a Gen 5, but they do indeed fit a '19 perfectly.

I actually do have a set of front flaps, but don't remember if they were intended for my '18 (sold) and with or without flares.
Of course, I'm running flaps intended for use with flares on my 1500 (they cover a bit more) so it shouldn't matter.

I'll try to remember to check tomorrow if whatever I have seems to fit the '19. My guess is they will.
