Well, looking at some Cummins tomorrow for better towing power. No issues with my 2500 Chevy 6.0 on the flats towing stuff but when I hit the hills with my toyhauler I really feel the lack of grunt. I have the 4:10 gears but only 360lbs torque whereas the 05-09 Diesels I am looking at are at that 650lb torque range, which will be noticeable I do believe. Spent hours yesterday looking on line and it's crazy the price they ask for these when they have around 200,000 miles on them. It's around $15,000 in Colorado. I am going to start off looking at one from a dealer that is a 2 owner 2005 Cummins with the 5.9 with only 112,000 on it. Asking $23k but I want to haggle them to right around $20k with cash down. Duramax is sooo pricey it's unreal, plus I am picky on the interior. I need the fold up center seat for my "navigator" (our doggo) which most duramax don't have from what I am seeing.
The struggle is real....
Have you got about 15 hours for a drive back from Kellogg Idaho to save lots of money. Call "Dave Smith Motors" for internet pricing. I saved thousands on my last new truck. They paid for my flight there, shuttled me from the airport, (put some people up in a motel for the night), test drove, signed papers, fed me BBQ and I was on the way home in the early afternoon with a full tank of fuel.
