I have the sport suspension and for a 6000lbs truck it handles pretty good. Would be even better with a rear sway bar though.

Quoted from the GM info. on the L9H 6.2

Theres more great reading in the link I put in the above thread.

Like we need any more reason to love our 6.2 powered trucks.

 

The new Vortec 6.2L is a fourth-generation descendent of one of the most important and successful engines in automotive history-the original Chevrolet small-block.

 

The 6.2.L is the most powerful of GM's Gen IV Vortec V-8s; indeed, it is the most powerful small-block truck engine ever, with the most torque. It delivers new levels of refinement to go with brute strength, and industry exclusive technologies such as cam-in-block variable valve timing.

I'm just going to hang out here and hopefully I don't get kicked out and dream about buying a 6.2L in my next truck! :cool:

I've been reading on this forum and haven't been able to find a good towing review from any 6.2 owners. Everything I've read seems to say it's the best half ton tow rig right now (Ford 6.2 is STILL untested). I'm def going to try and find a 6.2 in my next truck. They're simply amazing! Jealous..

What else does the NHT package get you?

I have the 6-speed with the HD tow package, Z82, 9.5" rears, 17" discs, and was just wondering what I didn't get...

Thanks!
