Yeah! I figured since I work for GM might as well drive a GM. Got a killer deal on this nicely kept LTZ. It rides a lot better than the Ford. Power wise is about the same. Loving the new truck!

What differences do you notice TOWING between your old Ford F-250 and your new Chevy 2500?

Here's a picture of my new truck all hooked up. I haven't actually towed it yet, just pulled it out to see if any adjustments were needed since the new truck sits so much higher than the old '11 F-250. To my surprise (and wonder), everything appears to sit perfectly level. Just like it did on my '11. I am at a loss to explain it.

No real noticeable difference that I can tell. Both trucks were stock. Chevy seems to have a better riding suspension while under load. Power wise no noticeable difference. The hitch sits further back in the chevy than the ford so turning is a little better.

Not at all. Simply curious of the combination as we are exploring TH/truck combos.

Totally understand. I started a thread asking about pay load on the next truck I am looking at. I got a ton of responses but not one listed pay load. Go figure.

FWIW: My 2016 Silverado 2500HD gasser is 2906 lbs. A diesel will be 500-800 lbs less.

The only way to truly know payload is to look at the sticker on the EXACT truck you're buying. They're all different based on options.

Yes I agree. my gmc has about 100 more. But what the original purpose was just to see what other real world numbers were.

Double cab LT. See my signature.

If you have an LTZ or crew cab, that would probably cut 200 lbs easily.

Its a crew cab high country. Knew my payload took a hit with the high options. Minimum difference between 2500 n 3500. Rear end pumpkin gusset and extra leaf. Have air bags and extra gusset not worried about the little bit i might be over
