I've had this truck for almost 4 years, and I have nothing but good to say. I have a 37' 5th wheel, which when loaded is right at 16300 lbs and it pulls it great. Now I'm not going to tell you that I don't know the 5th wheel is back there, but this truck is a joy to drive while pulling. She'll be paid for in a couple of months, and I plan to keep her for a long time.
Duramax engine and Alison transmission combo. This is a great team!
I wish GMC would come out with some nice wheels for the 3500. I ended up getting Alcoa wheels.
I haul a 11'6" Lance Legend camper and
pull a 8'x12' trailer with it loaded
with ATV's and a motorcycle and the
truck does all I want it to. I traded
a Powerstroke in and I am pleased that
I did. It's quite and rides and
handles a lot better then my old Ford.
I am getting around 12mpg at freeway
speeds with this load.
Power and handling. The ride is great
also and it is quite.
This was the worst vehicle i ever had.
It broke down right as i was pulling
out of the dealership. The dealership
then actually charged me for towing it
the 10 feet to the service area!!
Turns out the axle was faulty. They
also found that the radiator leaked too.

You can always ask for more, but this
truck gives the best of all I have ever
driven. The Duramax is quiet and it
seems to have more pep than my old 350
gas. Over the road unloaded I have
gotten 22 mpg at I-95 speeds. Pulling a
medium size 5th wheel is a pleasure.
The allison transmission is absolutely
super. I will buy another. By the way
my other car is a Ford ambulance
(diesel), the powerstroke is great but
can't hold a candle to the duramax. The
Dodge is just too loud.
