purchased new and now have 3,500 miles
on the odometer. love the 6.0
vortec,has great power through out the
rpm range. tows my atv's and trailer
like nothing!! the 410 limited slip is
great for my back woods hunting. even
though it is 2500HD, it will take you
alot of places in 4 low. (i opted for
the manuel shift transfer case which i
love!) and still acts great on the open
road. buddy has a 2003 f-150 and
another a 2002 dodge, this vortec blows
both of those boat anchors away! good
steering wheel controls and limited
slip differential w/tow package.
beeter fuel, less noise from hd tranny
(dealer said its normal for the hd
trannys to whine and hiss due to the
heavy duty gears,(overkill on tranny
for 3/4 truck they said!) i bought
extended warranty just in case!!
2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab Work Truck Rwd SB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)
Had a few problems in the begining,
1. Faulty control valve on heating
2. Alignment problems.
3. Paint defects that were not fixed
before taking delivery of the vehicle
Plenty of towing power. Really like
the steering wheel controls for the
Place the cruise control on the
steering wheel instead of the driver
option buttons. Replace the parking
brake with a system similar to the
chevy impala, press twice to release
instead of pulling release. Make gas
peddle less sensitive, everytime you
hit a bump you rev the engine.
Purchased this to pull a 5th wheel.
Has all the capabilities to do what I
wanted. Better ride and interior than
I expected in a 3/4 ton. Gas mileage is
about 13 now but only have 1500 miles
in it. May improve. Have not been
back to the dealer yet with any
complaints. Can tell more later.

previous Suburban could turn shorter.
