Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 2WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)

Purchased at 30k miles, now 52k, no mechanical problems at all, runs great. Factory Firestone tires were terrible for ride and traction, switched to 265 BFG All Terrains, huge improvement. I like everything but the gas mileage. I get about 11.5 mpg.

>Is Chevy doing the same thing today with the new Silverado 2500? Is it nothing more than a 1500 with an extra leafspring? Is the Silverado 2500HD the true 3/4 ton? <...
