  1. GM used to have a 3500 hd with a 15000lb or 16000 gvw
    I dont see on all the specs i have on duramax a 3500 with that gvw rateing.Most i have seen is 12000.
    anyone know if they have a 3500 anymore with the 15000 or 16000 rateing

    I think that this is the last year for them becuse they are comeing out with a new line of the 15Klb and up trucks.They will only have 2 wd for now and will have 4wd in a year after that is what I rember reading.Go to the diesel page.com and you can see what it looks like.But the 3500 HD is still around.It only comes with the 6.5 and not the Dmax.

    WOW Get out of the way of those mirrors!! That will take some getting used to. I have a '97 3500 HD with the 6.5 turbo diesel not at all impressed with the power. I also have Powerstrokes seems like they have a whole lot more get-up-and-go.

    oodin i think you are getting into the "topkick" line when you get that much gvw. most will feature gm. 366 (big block gas) or a "cat" diesel (3116 i think).
