My Silverado is too small to pull my new camper, so I had to get something better.

2002 GMC 2500HD 6.0 ltr/ 4:10, Allison tranny, SLE package, everything but leather and DVD and 6 disc changer. Cd, tape, bucket seats, 6 way power seats, killer sound system, Line-X bed liner, towing package, etc.

39,000 miles, turned in from a lease......$20,000 with 5 year/ 40,000 mile extended warranty.

Of course :waving:
I'd never had the privilege to ride in or drive a Cummins until I test drove mine. Wow... I've ridden in several Chevy 2500's with 6.0's but I love a diesel! I've driven a few other diesels but they don't feel like a Cummins either.

The 2500 6.0 is a nice truck though, and I think thats a great looking one too! But your still not going to see the better side of 14 or 15 mpg on the highway empty... I know diesels aren't for everyone, just bustin ya a little :)

I give it to you that a cummins is a nice engine with a lot of power, but wait until you replace the tranny two or three times. The allison tranny is bulletproof, great price too.

Sweet looking truck EN! Congrats! That seems like a really good deal as well especially with a warranty.

You will love the dodge until you have to drop a new trans in there or for that mater a few trans.

Hate to break it to you, but you don't have an allison tranny if you have the 6.0 ltr gas engine.

No biggie. This thing is still a beast. Heavy duty tranny with tranny cooler, 4:10 rear end, oil cooler, tow/haul mode, pulls the camper with such ease. No bad news here. :)

As for the cummins, I don't like diesels, never have.

No kidding, the cummins engine is great, but the Dodge package it is wrapped in isn't the greatest. For example, I know a guy who bougt a new 3500 ram with a deisel, at 50,000 it busted a ball joint and the front wheel fell off. Also, my uncle's Ram 2500 is on its third tranmission.
