    Yesterday I saw something i have never seen before.... I saw a 96 chevy 1500 4x4 Deisel had the 6.5. Had leather interior it apears to be all original.... has anyone else seen one.
    It even has on the inside gauges deisel fuel only. I would love to have one. these things must be really rare it only had 130 on the speedo. Infact it really hurt me when the guy told me what he paid for it.

    Yup, they made them for a few years. You could even get the diesel in a 2 door Blazer/Tahoe.

    Nope, my first truck was a 94 silverado with the 6.5, kind of wish i had kept it, however the years were getting to the body, it needed alot of work to make it nice again, but the milage was quite good, never noticed much/if any difference from empty to loaded down, it was no race truck mind you haha you had to think before you decided to pass sometimes, but all in all it was good, i would buy a good one onw even if i could find it

    Wow I learned something new today. I always thought GMC only had the 1/2 ton diesel. Back in '98 I tried to find one at the local Chevy/GMC dealer and they told me that you could only get it in GMC, maybe that was when they were being dicontinued. Now my question is did they offer it with snowplow prep?

    I'm just curious to know because up until 2011, you couldn't get plow prep on a 2500hd diesel with any of the two newer body styles. If they did allow plow prep on a 1/2 ton diesel back then, it would just prove that trucks were built heavier then than today.
