Best truck has the 8.1 with the allison tranny. Has power and with a full load it won't bog down. All one ton and in great condition lots of miles over 216k but still runs strong, I never have a problem with the truck, I use it to pull and drive on a daily basis. The 4x4 works great too.When needing to it will turn all 4 tires without a problem. With all the normal maintenance it runs strong with no problems. I highly recommend this truck for any occasion or any reason.

The 6.6L DuraMax Turbo Diesel w/ Allison
5sp 2500HD is the best truck I've owned.
It will out haul and out tow the others
hands down. We had a '96 Suburban w/454

We were able to tow a '55 Chevy uphill
with the windows up and A/C on at 70MPH

trailer there at all. What a brute! I
forgot to mention the 20MPG highway!
What a great truck!
I'd buy another in a minute...
