I was just wondering how much more a duramax and allison weighs compared to the 6.0. My new dump has the gasser and it is real sluggish and doesn't like a 10k load. I thought I might get some extra legal load capacity in the dump bed compared to my '05 dmax dump truck, but the power difference is staggering.

Your main problem is the torque of the 6.0 isn't anywhere near that of the DM.

What do you expect that truck would be no different that a 1 ton dually flatdeck with a 350 carbureted or TBI injected.

As for the weight of the duramax your prolly looking at 900lbs.
