Get a Crew Cab, It's worth it!
By Mr Moose from Maine on


2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD LT1 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)


I did a lot of research before I bought a new pickup. I've owned pickups from all of the "Big 3" and had no great loyalty to anyone. I spoke with several ME game warden's who drive thier trucks in all types of weather and off road conditions, and they all said Chevy's were the best. I was undecided about an X-tend or Crew cab, went with the Crew cab. It's longer, harder to dock, uh park, but the convience of the 4 doors is worth it. Drives well, rides great. Load it up and it rides like a Cadillac. The longer length takes some getting used to, and the gas mileage isn't bad for a 300HP engine. If you take it off road make sure you have plenty of room to turn around. You'll need it! Overall, very happy!

Favorite Features

The plow package makes installing a plow easy! The locking rear differential really locks! 1000% better then Ford or Dodge's joke "Limited Slip" The overhead swivel reading lights are great. Why didn't anyone think of them sooner? The towing package is 100% ready to tow, hook and go! Great visibility all around.

Suggested Improvements

Get rid of the 40-20-40 seat. No one can sit in the middle of it. Move the cup holders off of the floor and make the console bigger. How about a choice of rear axle ratios 4.10 3.73 or 3.55? Bigger stock tires, the 245's look like donuts in the wheel wells. Get the G-80 locking rear end, it's worth it!
