    Towing the mowing trailer.

    This is the first diesel i've ever driven and man does it have some power. Pulls the trailer like it is nothing.

    Allison transmission is nice too. Grade-braking feature works great.

    Parked next to the other truck...

    Major step up from a pre-vortec 350ci to a diesel. Unbelievable power difference.

    That is an awesome truck, are you going to put a dump insert in the new GMC or keep it how it is......Congratulations!

    Very nice truck! I have an '02 like it. Did the chip, intake, and exhaust work. It was strong before but just plain wicked now! :D

    When pulling a heavy load I have to be extra gentle on the throttle when pulling out from a stop like at traffic signals. It will light the rear tires like it is on ice.

    NICE truck Ryan!

    How many miles on it?

    Looks like its Loaded too! I see OnStar on the roof. That's usually an indication of a fully loaded one.

    That truck was probably close to $50K sticker when new!

    Have fun with your HotRod! :D

    Wow, nice truck! Only problem that I can see is it doesn't have a blue oval on the front of it, but it's still very nice!
