    i have a choice: (btw, im gonna drive either one until the axles crack and the engine explodes, OR some idiot buys it for $100000)

    a new chevy 2500 ex cab 6.0L 4x2 power everything $29000


    a new chevy 2500 crew cab diesel w/ allison 4x4 power everything $35000

    which one?

    the biggest trailer ill pull will be either my 14 foot dump or 24 goose w/ skid and mini ex.

    I'm not a Chevy fan, but that isn't the point here. Always, if you can afford it go with bigger/more power. Its better to have too much and not need it, than to have to little and not have it. Just my 2 cents. :drinkup:

    True the worst thing in this biz,is to buy some thing and not be pleased with it.

    Why not just use your f-250 diesel?

    Definately get number 2. You'll be a lot happier with it than a gasser.

    I am not a Chevy fan, but given these choices, Duramax. Even my wife, who HATES the sound and smell of a diesel, missed it when pulling any of our trailers large or small. And honestly, the engine is well built, and the Allison transmission.........well being a Ford guy I won't be to nice, it would look bad.
