2005 2500hd duramax

Vehicle: 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)

I have to say this truck is awsome! I own several semi trucks and Chevrolet has spent alot of time designing this Duramax. I have the LLY and I pull a 10,000lb trailer and don't even know it's back there! The best thing they could do for this truck is ride height increase! It's no taller than a Colorado! But overall, it's one tough truck! The Duramax is the quietest diesel on the market! I put a K&N air filter in with no increase in fuel mileage but, I am averaging 17mpg. city driving mostly.

Quite the change from plain-jane 1500 series. Love the firm ride and the off road capabilities. Everything is right within reach of the driver.
