This is my 2nd GM diesel truck and it
has operated flawlessly since delivery.
The power and accelleration for a big
truck makes it fun to drive. I tow a
14000 lb 5th wheel and can pass with
ease going over the mountains. The
mileage is about 10mpg with the trailer
and running 65, without it runs about
18-19 mpg on the highway.
This vehicle has surpassed all our
expectations (except for the dealer who
is mediocre). The cabin noise level is
lower than most of the cars that I have
owned in the last 15 years. Build
quality is improved over the 95 GMC
that I owned. I tow 10 to 13K pound
loads on a daily basis. Hauling horses
I routinely discuss trucks with other
guys at horse events. I find that I
can out haul them, get slightly better
gas mileage and the TRUCK IS IN THE
SHOP less than my Ford F350 friends
(one of whom has sold his to buy a
Chevy 3500). If you are looking for a
real work rig, this is it.
We upgraded to a heaveier tow vechile.
We have a horse ranch and haul 12,000
to 15,000# trailers. If you want a
SERIOUS tow vehicle, this is it.
Neither Ford nor Dodge can touch it.
It is also eztremely quite, but due to
the towing capacity a little hard
riding. Build quality is great,
especially considering this is a TRUCK
