Hi to everyone, We recently (May) purchased a 2008/9 Kingston 33SK fiver and are enjoying it thoroughly. We haven't done much traveling yet as we have a seasonal campsite but plan on doing some of the eastern seaboard area of the US next spring. After that trip I will decide if I need to upgrade my truck which is an 04 GMC 2500 6 liter gas. If anyone is presently towing a 33SK with the similar truck I would love to hear your experiences.</span>
All the best Ken</span>

Welcome to the forum. In regards to your inquiry about tow vehicles, I also pull with the 2500HD 6.0 gasser. My PF30CK Paradise Point is as big as I would go with this truck. If you plan to travel any distance I wouldlook intotrading fora diesel........same brand of course!

Ken, welcome to the forum. Depending on the tow rating of your Chevy and what you use it for (daily driver etc.) there are many upgrades you can do to your 6.0l. Consider a super charger and a reputable programmer. You can produce as much powerand most times more than any stock diesel unless you are set on purchasing a new truck. Then my first choice would be a duramax until of course Ford proves their new diesel which I believe comes out next year and from what I've read its a duramax clone. Hopefully theycan mate it with the torque shift transmission then they'll finally give the GM group a run for their money.
