Answerd my question for a while ago!!!

hi all
A while back i had a few questions for advise to get for my first truck. Wheather it was 4.8 5.3 6.0 blah blah blah. But any how a question came up that a buddy of mine had mentioned about a 2500 series truck with a 5.3 liter engine in it so I asked you guys and no one knew. So i guess what I am trying to say is I answer that question that they do make a 2500 series truck with the 5.3 and thought that you all might want to see it for yourselves.

I found it on ebay.
Enjoy!

Yeah GM was making some weird stuff. They had those 3/4 tons rated like a half ton. Then they had the 1500hd with 8 lug wheels.

Fuel efficient and 6.0 should never be used in the same sentence.
