    Typical dealer,doesn't even know what he's selling. If you read the spec's he say's it has the Allison tranny. Sure it's a 6 speed but not an Allison! With a 6.0L it's a 6L90 6 speed. Truck look's pretty good overall though.Decent ground clearance with the Z71 package. The gage's are sweet but not too sure about the look of the dash...look's kinda Tundra..ish. :nod: BTW William, are you financing it? If so, I'll be the Guinna pig! :D

    Only the Duramax equipped truck's have the Allison. The 6.0's use the 6L80 tranny and both the tranny's feature "tap shift". If you look at the pic of the option list, it list's the trans as RPO code "MYD". That's the 6L80.

    William,
    I'd look for a 07 classic and save a few thousand. This truck has a lot of nice features but for $39,000 I want some thing with plow prep. I did not see it listed on the sticker.

    The allison trans is offered with a D-max or the 8.1 which is only offered in the 4500 and 5500 series anymore.You cannot get an allison with the 6.0

    That truck is beautiful..if I didnt owe so much on my 05 3/4 ton I would def order me one. We also just bought a couple of 07's work trucks for our fleet so our new truck budget is in the red zone for a little while :(

    I tried building one to match but Chevy's website willonly let me build 1500s in the new style. Is the Z71 package legitimately offered on the 2500HD? Used to be just for the 1500's.

    I agree, the look of the new Chevy upsets my stomach, the front end is awfull low for a plow dont ya think.

    What I think Turf Masters meant was the 8.1 is no longer available in the 2500/3500 trucks after the '07 model year, which is correct. :)

    Don't fret just yet 06HD :D , to the best of my knowlage the woodgrain dash is only in the LTZ optioned truck's (which that one is) The lower trim level's won't have the woodgrain.

    Hey grandscapes why did you buy 07's? I just bought an 06 2500HD its the typical work truck 4x4 plow prep but it had $6500 in rebates where the 07 only had $1500. My dealer here in the Cleveland area did a dealer trade mine came from Indiana but there were several in Michagan. Just curious if your dealer gave you that option.

    You are correct! The new 07 8.1 is only in the bigger trucks.I tried to get another 8.1 which I have 2 of in 3500 mason dump but the deadline was Dec 15th 06 to order them.
