2006 GMC Sierra 2500HD SLE1 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)

Review

This truck was without question the nicest riding, looking and driving truck I have ever owned. Good power for towing or snow plowing with the standard 6.0 gas engine. This truck, despite its terrible fuel economy [avg 10 mpg with 4.10 axles] was always a pleasure to drive. Two days ago I started up the truck to hook up the job trailer it was hard to pull out of park. I noticed the check engine light on and noticed rough running along with a burning smell. I had it towed to the dealer and got a phone call that mice had eaten wiring in the power center under the hood and that all the wiring and the power center would need to be replaced. After seeing in person what a catastrophe it must go.

Favorite Features

Both front windows express down, rear window defogger and heated mirrors, lights in the door panels and factory wiring for roof plow light. The new identical model and color 08 truck with a sticker price in excess of 42K with a diesel engine does not have express down both windows or the door lights

Suggested Improvements

Seal this big power box under the hood to the fender well. This truck will always be my favorite although it didn't last long.
