I'll only buy duramax

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4dr Extended Cab SLT 4WD LB w/OnStar (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

This is by far the greatest and most comfortable truck ever made. And if power and performance are what you want then this is the truck for you. The only trouble I had was with the injectors and luckily they were covered by the LB7's extended 7year/200,000mile warranty. Other than that I have never had trouble with this truck. Plus the aftermarket for Duramax's is so wide open to your imagination.

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab SLE 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

My 2001 is a real pleasure to drive, getting 15mph on highways, always used regular gasoline. It performs well in the snow and I'm sold on Allison transmissions.

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab SLT 4WD SB w/OnStar (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

Best vehicle I have ever owned. Still smooth and powerful after 150,000 absolutly trouble free miles. Ford and Dodge probably have as good an engine, but no way can they match the Allison/Duramax as a package. I used to trade trucks every year, but I still enjoy this one so much I want to see just how long it will go.
