Yeah I know they don't do well on MPG's but I'm after the simplicity/lower repair and maintenance costs of a gas engine over a diesel. How's your 3500HD handle payloads/towing? I can get a new 2012 GMC 3500HD 6.0L Gas 4x4 mason dump for $31,000 so I'm leaning that way but I want to make sure I'm not buying an undersized truck...
