    So on Monday I picked up my new truck. It is a 03' GMC 2500HD w/ the Duramax and allison. Reg cab and can't forget about the X blade. I have been driving it since Monday so this was my first chance to post it. The truck is awesome and I love it. It is what I've always wanted.:D :waving:

    VERY NICE truck.

    Can someone 'splain "X Blade?" I'm not at all familiar with Fisher plows.

    Thanks guys.

    The xblade is the new stainless steel plow by fisher. Its 31" tall.
    the 'x' stands for Xtreme duty or something like that.

    Second dumb question: why stainless steel?

    CRES (CRES - Corrosion REsistant steel is the technical acronym for stainless steel) isn't supposed to have the strength of regular carbon steels. It wouldn't seem to be the best choice for a plow blade front-board, especially for a heavy-duty one.

    The DeLorean car had a stainless steel body. I thought that owners said the stainless steel finish was a real bear to keep looking clean and shiny.

    How do you like the new diesal/trans? Do they offer a 100,000 mile extened warranty on the drive-tran like the old diesal engines of the late 1990's?

    Great looking truck, lots of luck with it...

    I love the diesel, quiet and has tons of power and is much quieter than the Ford and Dodge. The tranny is nice, I like it alot. Not sure about the warranty, have to look at the booklet tomorrow. The engine has a 5 year/ 100,000 mile warranty on it but not sure about the rest.
    THanks for the compliments.:waving: :cool: :D
