    My beast. It's a '98 1500 Z71 6.5L Turbo Diesel.

    I can't leave anything alone, always modifying. Here's a list of mods so far:

    - Cloud Rider Grill Cover
    - APC Clear Corner Lenses
    - Altezza Taillights
    - Clear Roof Marker Lenses
    - Extang Soft Tanno Cover
    - Low Profile Hood Deflector
    - Vent Visors

    The truck serves as my personal vehicle, pulls the trailer during the summer for work, and in the winter on goes the Western UltraMount snowplow.

    Sweet truck dude, I had a 97 GMC 3/4 ton X-cab shortbox w/ a 350. I love that configeration of a truck. If the mileage woulda been just a little better ( 12-14 highway) I probobly would kept it but being a poor student I needed to find somthing a little more econimical. My ford diesel gats 17 so its a little better. What kinda MPG do ya get with a 6.5 TD? Love the way those trucks look and ride and the interiors are awsome. 40/60 split or buckets up front?

    Thanks bud.

    I really don't know what kind of MPG it gets, I don't keep track of it to be honest. It's still a big block V8, so it can't be all that much better than a gas 350, but it's a diesel! :D

    Since it is my personal vehicle, I went with the leather. :)
