i also have an 08 duramax cc with standard 6'6" bed. pulls like a freight train bought mine used as well in 10 with 3000 miles. car fax came back clean with no accidents or history. only downside i have found is the silly 26 gal fuel tank on the short bed. seriously, if titan can make a 52 gal tank fit very well into the same spotwith minor "hang down", why cant gm put in a 35 or 40 gallon tank?

as far the fass fuel system, does that replace the stock filter with something (block off plate)to mount in stock location? that stock filter is in a pita location, at least for me anyway. im not any where NEAR as flexible and limber as i usta be

I love having the 36 gallon tank in my '11. But seriously - why can't these stupid fuel stations allow transactions large than $100. They've got my credit card so I can't see what they are worried about. So I'm forced to run the card through twice each time, never knowing how much the second pull is going to draw. Can't tell you how many times I've waited for the pump to clear after the first run, put my card in a second time, and then only pull about 2 gallons. If I were to be using a stolen credit card, I'd still be doing the same thing.

That's not a fuel station problem, it's the credit card. Credit card companies put a limit on it because they don't know what the final cost is going to be, unlike a store purchase, and they can't shut the pump off once a transaction is started. The limit use to be $50, but with the rising gas prices, they bumped it to $100. Gas station credit cards, on the other hand, don't have a transaction limit.

Amen brother!

But I notice it varies all over the place - sometimes $74, others $75, $90 or $100. Some no limit. Also varies weather credit card or debit card. Seems silly to me, but I bet it's based on maximizing the fees the bank charges for these transactions.

I never put my card in twice. If all they want to sell is $74 of diesel, then so be it, screw them and on to the next! I should get more disciplined and just fill it when it gets down to 1/2, instead of all the way to E, and not have to worry about limits.

Turbs, Just my opinion... I love my 05 Duramax/ Allision combo. Wouldn't have anything else except for a 2014 Duramax/ Allision. Duramax/Allision what a great combo. That's just my opinion.

I'm with ya!
I'll have to wait till February if I go with the duramax .
Gas I could go get today.

Guess I'm holding out till either a good deal comes my way or I order a d-max in February.
When do the 14's come out?

I have a 2012 Silverado 2500 diesel EC & love it.
Traded in a Dodge 2500 V10 & it was the best move I ever made.
Once you go diesel you never go back!

With the V10 I was getting 5 mpg towing my 12K lb 5er.
Last trip to FL we had to stop every 100 miles to tank up.
On the open highway I'm averaging 12-13mpg with the diesel.

Just this past weekend I pulled the 5er up a .5 mile, 45 degrees dirt hill from where we camped along the Allegheny River.
It wasn't an established road or camp ground.

Hindsight I should never have taken the 5er down where I did to begin with. Just couldn't resist the secluded spot 20' from the river's edge.

I know I would have never gotten out if I had the V10.

Wow, I'd be too scared to take a 5ver that big off the asphalt! What would you do if you got stuck?

Turbs... Not sure exactly when the 2014's come out, but I do know the 1500's will come out first and then the 2500 HD's all new interior design and new exterior makeover and more creature comforts plus more power as if we really need it.

I think I'll spring for a 3500 HD SRW this time... less than $ 1000.00 DIFF. IMHO well worth it... same ride, same comfort and a little more capacity.
