Our new TV

Here she is.... Chevy Silverado 3500 duramax. She is 4wd, automatic, LT package. She is also equipped with an exhaust brake. Nothing fancy but man does she have some capabilities. She is rated at13000 lbs max conventional trailer and 16800 lbs max 5er. She has 3900 lbs of available payload (per tire loading sticker) and a 2000 lb hitch capacity. I will have better numbers after a trip to the scales but I think it is safe to say she will handle most trailer or 5er I plan to throw at her... We are looking at tt w/ 11000 lb gvwr

Thanks, I love it! It is really quiet, I made the comment that it didn't even sound like a diesel... although that exhaust brake sure sounds nice. It doesn't stink either. Oh and I don't have to warm the glow plugs to start like I did in my old diesel but I do have to put definitely in it with oil changes.

Might need a dually for that one Mark but this one might be able to pull the house off the foundation.

Nice truck, congrats. The oil changes are really messy. I used to do mine myself but diesel oil is NASTY! I now have it done.
