    Anyone driven the new style HDs? The local dealership had a couple so I stopped to check them out. I'm wondering how they feel with the improved 6.0 and 6 speed. They also had 3.73 gears. Hopefully MPG will increase?

    I drove a new gmc ext cab a couple of weeks ago and I think I rides better than the 1500 the new 6.0 got that truck up and moving without flat footing it and the trans was smooth thru all six gears. I'm ordering mine in the next couple of weeks. Two thumbs up for me!!

    I ordered a 6.0 6spd '07 on March 6th. The improved (more hp) and 6 speed were significant in my decision between the "classic" and new style '07. I have a freind with an '05 6.0 and he doesn't get too bad on fuel economy (not really any worse than my '96 K1500) as long as he behaves and he has 4.10's. I am very hopeful for the 6-spd and 3.73 combo to help. I am also thinking of getting the cold air kit and performance exhaust (the reduced pumping losses should help too).

    Couple guys over at dieselplace.com have gotten ones. One member put the H2 rims with 285s on it and it made the truck look tons better.

    They need more factory options for wheels! Redesign entire truck and then slam the old style wheels on them? I have a 07 classic and was checking out the new style. The front bumper is monstrous! i dont know if this change is for the better. The inside is very nice though.

    I drove a new style '07 Chevy 2500HD 6.0 gas just because. I actually was very impressed with the truck. Wasnt too happy with the design at first, but I think its going to grow on me. Cant wait to drive a Duramax!;) My next truck will be Chevy or Dodge, but im leaning towards the GM's!:nod:

    I'm really hoping the 6 speed and 3.73s help the gas mileage some.
