    Yes it is. This one is blue but I switch it out with amber when I plow.

    Both are 6.0 gassers with auto traneys. Plenty of power for my needs.

    What kind of gas mileage do you get with the 2500? I am not asking about plowing, i know with plowing it sucks. I am asking about around town and highway. Have you always had Chevy's?

    As far as mileage - I bought a new "leftover" '05 Chevy Silverado 2500HD auto trans and 6.0 Regular Cab last Oct. Been keeping track of all gas put in it - mileage, cost etc. To date, I've got 7260 miles on it. Plowing, I was getting 8.54 mpg. Summer, I'm getting 13.5 mpg.

    Allways had chevys or gmcs. I had a 90 dodge dump that I brought and fliped and had a ford ranger for a little bit, it was a good runaround truck but that was it.

    New Heights, nice truck! Where did you buy that lightbar? I have a Whelan Mini-edge now but am seriously considering an LED mini.

    I got one from East Coast Liting down in North Brunswick NJ and one from State Line Safety in ParkRidge NJ, blue was around $500 and amber was $225-250.
