Just curious if anyone here has one or has test driven one? Looking for input. I'm gonna be in the market for a new truck soon and am trying to decide between one of these or a 1500 Silverado
It depends on the horse trailer.Mine is a gooseneck that weighs about 11k lbs loaded.A 6L will do it but the diesel does it much better.You also notice a big difference between a diesel and gas engine when towing when it comes to fuel economy.My days of needing a big horse trailer are coming to an end here.My daughter just turned 18 so her weekend rodeo trips will be on her in the near future.I haven't decided it I'll get a new 3/4 ton or just a half ton when that happens.In any event,it won't be a diesel.DennyF said:So...the rumors that you just liked the noise and stench, are untrue then?
One of my best friends and huntin' buds, was a diesel mechanic most of his life, eventually worked his way into management and ran a local Detroit Diesel shop.
Another friend asked him one day, why he didn't drive a diesel pickup. He answered that few really need one, including him. His wife pulled their horse trailer with his 4x4 2500 Silverado w/6.0L gasser just fine.
He's been gone for 15 years now and she's still using that same truck to drag nags around.
You're gonna let us know how that works out, right?My daughter just turned 18 so her weekend rodeo trips will be on her in the near future.

Wow what kind of oil do you run?? When I had a d-max the oil change was around 45 50 bucks.
My Cummins takes an 11.00 filter and 3 gal of Rotella at 12.00 ec.
