New (to me) tow vehicle

Picked up my 08 Silverado 2500 Duramax tonight. Came across a gem of a truck 48K miles in showroom condition original owner he put seats covers on everything in the interior since new and there is not a scratch on the outside of the thing. This is one nice riding truck the IFS is much smoother than the solid axle in the Ram. This is my 1st diesel I cant wait to pull with it.
Thanks to F1100 (Ron) for the information and opinion on this truck.

Beautiful truck! A word of caution though, once you hook a camper to that truck, your face will cramp due to the excessive smiling caused by pulling with a modern diesel!!!!! Nice score! Happy camping!!

I have almost the same truck, and you will not be able to wipe the grin from your face first time towing. Or the 2, or 3rd etc. Your grin will eventually fade to a smirk, but that's as cured as you will get. Sorry for the bad prognosis, but you will just have to learnto live with it. Enjoy.

Add the Allison transmission and paint that thing Stealth Gray and it is a twin of mine.

Mine has had Wetokole seat covers since the day I bought it new.

LOVE the truck and you will too. Good luck with it.
