Best truck

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

Best truck has the 8.1 with the allison tranny. Has power and with a full load it won't bog down. All one ton and in great condition lots of miles over 216k but still runs strong, I never have a problem with the truck, I use it to pull and drive on a daily basis. The 4x4 works great too.When needing to it will turn all 4 tires without a problem. With all the normal maintenance it runs strong with no problems. I highly recommend this truck for any occasion or any reason.




Knock knock

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab LT 2WD LB w/OnStar (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

2WD. Bought this truck used from a friends dealer. Love everything except the engine knock. Keep hearing the knock is OK. Seems to have plenty of power but still don't trust the noise. Plenty of room for a family of five pulling a 30 ft camper. Still looking for the answer to the knock.

2001 2500hd

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

I have the pop-up goose neck hitch and the 8.1L engine. Massive power, but massive gas guzzler. It will pass everything but a gas station.

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.




Dang good truck

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab LT 4WD LB w/OnStar (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

This is a very good truck for pulling something less than 12,000 pounds. It is a very good truck and I haven't had any problems with it. It has 335 horse power with 385 pounds of torque.




It's all relative

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab LT 2WD LB w/OnStar (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

This has been a great vehicle. I've driven over 82,000 miles with no significant problems. Very dependable, powerful, and efficient. The swiss army knife of vehicles, it can do just about anything (except make tight turns). I plan to have this vehicle well past 200,000 miles. The only problems I've had were abnormal front tire wear early on and a blown front speaker (warranty item). Starts up quickly, even in 0F weather. I'm still on my original set of brakes, with plenty of material to go.
