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.
Both light- and heavy-duty 2500s sport new torsion bar front suspensions. Light-duty models get an 8,600-pound Gross Vehicle Weight Rating in addition to optional traction control and standard child safety-seat tether hooks.
