A) No one drinks "Bourbon and Pepsi". Just sayin'.....

B) Chick Fil A is crowded every minute the doors are open. Every one of them. My family loves it. They make great milk shakes. Their chicken tastes like dried shoe leather to me. I eat dark meat chicken because white meat is too dry. Ugh. Chick Fil A throws dark meat out, I assume.

C) I have owned a pickup truck for...........more years than most of you have lived. 2 years ago I got a 3/4 ton Diesel. Oh my!!! Everything before that was a toy. That was a truck! Now I have a Dually 1 ton. OOOHHH MYYYY! I want to hook on to ugly buildings that I pass to see if I could pull them off of the foundation! Plus it has electric brains and buttons and vibrating seats and sensors upon sensors and whatnots everywhere!!!!

Wife drives my old 1/2 ton gasser. Driving it is like going back in time and driving an Amish buggy!

Try going between your 3500 and a mini-van... thankfully, the wife now has a suburban so it isn't that bad

I took it to my guy today.......tire/brake store. Their brake guru drove it, and he looked at me funny and said 'There is ZERO wrong with this truck! I let go of the wheel and it tracked true. I'd buy it if you want to sell it!"

After discussion with the owner, he/we decided the only reason I THOUGHT something was wrong was how differently it drove than my new dually!

I wish they had diesel 3/4 ton Tahoe's!

I'm glad the OP is happy with his purchase. He mentioned he did his research- good. part of research is obtaining comments from others on their experiences. That provides a more information for one to base a decision on.

What are your experiences with a diesel pick up truck?

Regards.
I've owned 8 over the years.

1995 Chevy 6.5TD
2003 Ford 7.3
2007 Ford 6.0

2014 Chevy LML

OVerall The LML Duramax is my favorite.

I have plenty of experience.

DocGTO... curious what was it about the 03 dodge that made you go with a duramax... and what was it about the LMM you seemingly keep it such a short time before getting the '10 cummins?

At times we have 2 trucks at once. We have a farm so the wife uses one as well. The 2003 Dodge was great except it had the worst seats in the world.... LOL

The 09 LMM was a good truck but I couldn't pass up the deal on that 10 Dodge. I basically stole it and they gave me strong money for the 09 LMM.

Now, LML to LMM: LML all day long and of course, the improved frame, brakes, ect on the 2011 and newer Chevys.

I just bought a new truck. I was looking used as well as new. 08-10 were automatically eliminated because of the bad design of DPF.
