Well we decided it was time. Nothing wrong with the old truck just time to update. Was sad to see the old truck go lots of memories with it.

2017 3500HD 6.0/6L90E Crew Cab, long bed, 4x4, 4.10 gears. LT trim level so nicely optioned. 29,000 miles

Was advertised for 39310, 37500 for me (probably anyone) with 6500 (happy with that) for the old truck plus some money down. So I am happy. The upgrade is pretty amazing.

I am in love.

How are the RPM's with 4.10's and the 6 speed? The 6.0 is a great engine, I assume you didn't need all the power of the Duramax?

I did not. I towed the current trailer for 7 years with a 6.0/4L80E 4.10 gear truck. This truck has a lot to live up to. The old truck was a rock solid 02 GMT 800.

So the only comparison I have right now is there is a big hill by my house. The old truck would be at 3000 RPM to go 60 up it. This truck was at 2200 rpm going 60 up it.

Tons of ac condenser failures on those and its a huge job to replace it. It also uses the new r1234 refrigerant thats beyond expensive.

I guess GM stopped installing clearance lights on 3500 SRW trucks?.....Never noticed that 'til now.

I had been looking and this one just came up.

I hear the stock one is pretty good. I tow next weekend so I will see, but it was 85 today and I didn't see over 140 with the stock cooler.
