    Guys just got my new Durmax Chevy. I'm very impressed. This is one awesome pulling truck. I have had it since last thurs, and have 1040 miles on it. it sure makes the ford look like a piece of crap. i had a 99 lariat powerstroke 4x4, that went through 4 trannys in 62,000 miles. Anyways if anyone is thinking of a new truck take the new 2500hd chev with the Durmax diesel for a spin. Also the Allision auto is great to.

    Got one about a month ago and I love it too. I have a LS ext. cab. 4x4. What options did you get? This truck has so much power and its fast too. Check out the thread in the snow plow forum (Drove the new Duramax today). I have had so many people come up to me and ask me how I like it. There are not any of them around here and everyone has heard of them. Last night I was at Best Buys getting out of my truck and some guy was just standing there looking at me, I was like WHAT? and he said "How do you like that?" and I said "oh the truck"......

    jrodgers it's the LT version fully loaded 4x4, extended cab long box. I also had a custom cabgaurd built by Pro-tech for it. it sure does have amazing power. Hey what kind of fuel milage are you getting with yours. I also have a custom built fuel tank for the bed being made.

    I drove one a few weeks ago. I loved it. I'll probably order one in the fall. I'm entitled to a GM discount(they won't discount the Duramax engine itself). On another forum, a fellow with a Duramax was getting 17.8 mpg.

    Yeah that is probably what mine get about 17 mpg. Hey cat320 the hd's are out thats what this is 2500hd. I want to get some running boards or something and a bedliner also. What did you mean cabguard what does that do and is the gas tank in the bed an aux. gas tank or one for machinery? Mine is also a long bed . EarthTech How much did you pay for yours?....are you going to plow with it?....
