My 2500 has about 63,000 miles on it
and I use it for towing a 30ft 5th
wheel trailer.Mine pulls like a
tractor. ride quailty and comfort in
the cab are very good on a long trip.
If you choose the auto trans, plan on
replacing the torq converter to get
that diesel power to the rear wheels.
Trans is the weak link. The diesel
engines will run 300,000 before needing
rebuilt. Also no smog required. The in
line 6 cyl is a 12 valve engine and as
such is quite easy to boost the
horsepower and engine torque. 70 more
hp for about $225.00 Get around 25 mpg
empty in hiway driving, 14 towing.
