  1. Thank You newdude & Mike Barber. 11-15 mpg, much appreciated.
  2. Thanks shakenfake, must be 6.6L instead of 6.0L Buying used, love to have 6.6L Diesel, just waaay beyond what I can afford. Funny Tim, but true. Like riding my Harley for mpg. Just courious what people are getting for mpg in a 2500hd.
  3. Hey all, thinking about moving on up to 2500hd, needed for towing our travel trailer gvwr #8850. Curious as what you are getting for mpg on 2500 6.0L engines. City & highway, with and without trailer. Currently have a 14 gmc 1500, getting 16+ city, 21+ highway, backroads at 57 mpr 24+, towing trailer 6-10 mpg. Thank You, James
  4. Thank You 14LTZ-1LZ I will certainly look into this, Great Idea. Later-
  5. Thank You OffTheAir, glad to know that others have the same concerns. Guess today, because of the Cost of these trucks we feel it should last, but every mechanical item will fail at some point. Like you, just hoping that my truck will last to 200k. Take Care-
  6. Thank You G4Bama, no signs yet thank goodness. Great idea paying for that warranty.
  7. Thank You CamGTP, Grumpy Bear, Black02Silverado. I keep up maintenance on my truck, plan on it lasting many years. Just hoping that Transmission problems are seldom, and my truck last another 100k.
  8. Hey All, speaking to a neighbor today, said he was looking at buying a 14 like mine. But, he is finding one with the Transmission Replaced, because at around 100K Miles these 6 speeds Tranny and Torque Converters go out. My truck has 92K, Should I be Worried?
  9. Thank You Rav3, Swathdiver, Salsa De Pina. Makes sence with Max Tow Package. I will certainly try to find one with 6.2L with 3.73 gears Max Tow Package. Later-
  10. Hey All, was looking at a 14 crew cab 4x4 with 6.2L, 3.42 gears. GM Towing Guide shows it is 9,500 pounds. The same in 15 is 9,200 pounds. The same in 16 is 11,700 pounds. Is these #'s Correct?
  11. Thank You Swathdiver, looked at the truck, not very well maintained, so I passed. But to know that would work, is a good start, Thank You!
  12. Thank You Everyone, really like this site, great information from good people. Later-
  13. Thank You JimCost2014, VanguardK2, I would really like to have a 2500HD, that would be the solution for towing. Spent part of afternoon looking at them online. I would have to find a very sharpened pencil to to Trade In my truck, hopefully that will happen. If not, I will put in the 3.73 gears in my truck. But really Thank You for your Great thoughts and the right suggestions.
  14. Thank You Swathdiver, if I change to the 3.73 rear, does that also increase my payload?
  15. Thank You Donstar, will see what is available near me. Under rated truck to tow doesn't sound like fun. Mert Tas, had a 8N for many years, great tractor.
