    Just purchased an 08 2500hd gaser. I ran the vin to get the build sheet and it has a 6 speed hydro-matic.

    Anything special I need to know about these? Are they good performers?

    Truck is a cc with 3.73 gears.

    I believe it's a 6l90e trans, big brother to the 4l80e which was a good trans.

    Since they're still rather new the verdict is still out on them Vince but so far they're a great trans. Keep it cool and shift it manually if you get in a situation that it "hunts" too much and you should be very happy with it and have no issues.

    And congrats on the new purchase. :drinkup:
