    Well if finally did it. I got sick of my irreliable used trucks and bought myself a 2005 2500hd with the duramax and allison trans. I got the base package with plow prep and towing. So far i love it. I plan to use this truck to push an 8 foot western pro. Is there anything that i should be aware of?? Any known problems??

    Congrats on the new ride. I would suggest turning up the torsion bars and addin a set of timbrens under the front. Other than that, you have a great truck. Can't wait to see some pics.

    the only known problem i have found is finding a dealer that can support you and one that knows diesels. it doesnt matter what brand truck you get a good dealer can make a huge difference.
    there have been some problems with the duramax and allison, but most if not all of hte bugs have been worked out by now. like anything new there will be problems that need to be fixed. enjoy your new truck, and remember every month you will be reminded how much you like it when the payment is due. :)

    Actually its not a chevy it is a gmc but same difference practically. As far as payment i just couldn't afford to keep the old truck running ($3000 worth of maintenance from 3 separate breakdowns in a two weeks) I was really getting to know the tow truck drivers.
