Hey guys.. Im looking into buying a new truck come the spring time. I have a 98 silverado 1500 reg cab long bed. Great truck.. just want something a little better and bigger.. I have my mind set on the 2500hd. I wanted to know if any of you had the crew cab long bed combo. I don't plan on plowing with it so the length of it isn't a problem.Im sorta split between the gas and the diesel. I know getting a diesel has its pro's and i hear that the duramax is one of the best out there. Can someone give me some advice on whether to go with the diesel or gas? After taking it to the gas station and paying over 100.00 to fill up the tank, the diesel came to mind. Diesel obviously cost a little more, but will it be worth it in the end? The truck is either going to be an 04 or an 05 with less than 40k miles. The reason why im waiting for the spring is because the new 07 silverado's are coming out and i assume the older model (the 04, 05) would be cheaper, so i could hopefully get a good deal on one of them..
