    Well, here it is. It took about a month to get here.. and its finally here. Its a 2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD Crew Cab Long Bed with the Duramax/Allison Package. This truck has every option except the rear seat t.v. Compared to my 1500, this thing is a tank. I feal like im 20ft off the ground when i'm driving. I Love it! Its a tad long, but perfect for what i need it for. If you want any more pics let me know.

    Thanks! Yea, i don't think i'm going to get one for it. I've read in the diesel forums once you start getting programers for it, it screws with the computers, lights come on, etc. I don't need any of that. I think that i can safely add 90hp max without screwing up the tranny.

    Nope, no plow. It's wayy to long. I would need huge lots to be able to work with this. I will use it for snow removal though. I have 2 blowers and an atv with a plow on it.

    Nice truck, I wouldn't chip it if the dealer finds out you can loose the warranty depending on the dealer. The duramax has more than enough power I don't think the extra 75hp is worth loosing the warranty on a $40-45k truck.

    Yea, the warrenty is another reason why i won't chip it. Hah, i wish it was 45k lol

    Thanks! Yea, i love the red color. Especially on the Gmc's. I totally agree with you on the GMC vs. Chevy syling. I hate the front end chevy's. I know this truck has plenty of power, but i havn't really gotten a chance to test it out. Its brand new, and i need to take it easy for the first 500 miles. (keep it under 55mph, vary speeds, no flooring it,etc.) This is my first diesel, so i no, i havn't driven teh LBZ. The awesome thing is... it sounds like a diesel, without the smell. Most say its quiet.. but you can deffinetly tell its a diesel. THe interior is SUPER quiet.. I'm very happy with my decision on this truck. (and i better be with the price tag lol)

    No, no toolbox. I will prob put in a backrack and a bedliner along with the top rails.
