Lol!

'09 2500LT, '12 2500LTZ, '15 3500SRW. Defroster on 12 never worked right, and headlights flickered when brakes were applied at speed. Chevrolet waiting on a "fix" when I traded!
Only problems. Strong truck when pulling, comfortable as my daily driver!
18mpg average, 12 when pulling!
And I've found diesel cheaper than 87 octane in spots here!
Love my Duramaxx diesel!

That phase of soot reduction was crap.... Trucks ran hot and your fuel mileage was crap.

I get much better fuel mileage on my 2012 (with DEF) than I ever got on my 2006 or 2008.

Ditto. My 2009 Chevy 3500 and 2010 Dodge were horrible. The 2010 Dodge after being deleted was a little better.

I drove my new 2016 3500 Denali dually home yesterday and I had the cruise at 83 and did a few sprints to 90+ and still averaged 16.5. My 2010 Dodge deleted and tuned only did 16 at 72-75...

Haven't updated yet! Maybe tomorrow after I get it in the driveway, but it's a new Silverado 3500 DRW

Thank you. For those with their heads buried in sand thinking all emission things are bad so they continue polluting the air their children/grandchildren will be breathing need to go out and drive one of these clean burning bad boys.

I've been driving 4X4 trucks since 1976. Had SUVs before but even the huge Blazer and Ramcharger were not real trucks. Only 2comments ~~ I'll never own another gasser even if I no longer tow and never own another dually unless they start making parking spaces bigger (and my garage gets bigger). My wife does not like the idea of her suv being outside while a dually is in the garage. Telling her the SUV is $40K and the truck $70K is not a good reason.
