Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Extended Cab LT 2WD SB w/OnStar (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

Great truck for work, play, and family

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Extended Cab LT 2WD SB w/OnStar (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

This truck has the power! Power to perform the work (towing & haouling), and power to play. Can't believe a 6700 lb truck drives like a corvette. It is easy to increase the base 300hp to over 90 rwhp with as little as an $800 module and 5 minutes of time. Never knew that diesel motors were so easy to make horsepower. Smoth firm ride. Great highway ride. Gas milage is out of this world with 17-20 mpg depending on driving habits and type driving. GM has a winner! I've no problems outside of a leak in the windshield and the inside passenger door lock coming loose. These were fixed under warranty without incident.
