looks cool. So is that a 2500? Is it a diesel? Did it need some counterweight?

Looking forward to more work photos, I enjoyed the other thread.
Good to hear! I've got quite a few pictures but I've been forgetting with all the shuffling around that's been going on trying to work through the rain. One of the job sites I'm trying to finish up on has had 15.75" of rain since May so it has not been fun at all.

Yeah 2500HD regular cab long bed shortened. Frame and it's a 2007 classic LBZ Duramax. The frame looks factory and I gusseted the frame where it was shortened. From what I've heard the factory welds aren't all that great anyways so I'm willing to bet it's stronger.

As for counterweight it might need some in the winter. It likes to light up the tires under 30mph even with 420-430rwhp right now.

Just a blast to drive, I don't drive the crew all that much anymore.

I average 19.5 combined but haven't had any longer trips to test highway MPG. Heading to the parents cabin so I may do some testing on the way up and back. It's around 160 miles.

Thank you! I love driving the thing. It will be better once the SLT interior is in it and I have a radio again. The W/T seats with no arm rest are awful.

Reg cab short beds are the ultimate plowing machines.
