We have two 2500HD crewcabs with Duramax/Allison combo. Best trucks we have ever had period. I am sure the 3500 would be even better.

Have around 40,000 on them. Yes we tow with them. Regularly pull a JD5310 with bucket and backhoe (ain't no baby tractor!). I get around 23-25 mpg with the one I drive but it is chipped and has some exhaust and intake work. The other one is stock. It does not do quite as well in the economy dept. but still better than other trucks we have owned. As for power. PLENTY!

Mine also has the Duramax/Allison combo and i have around 34000 on it towing 5 days a week with it. I also get around 20-23mpg without trailer with trailer around 13-17mpg anly thing that has ben done to the truck is a new air intake system other than that its stock.

Those are even better. I have a GMC 4500 Crew Cab with a landscape body. Great rig for maintenance work.
