    I just got these sweet new rig yesterday. It is a 2007, 3500HD. I needed to trade in my 1/2 ton for something that would tow the travel trailer we bought. I was looking for a 3/4 ton and came across this beast. Total overkill for what I need it for but who am I to complain. It is fully loaded, all the bells and whistles. Duramax w/Allison tranny, the only thing it doesn't have is the kitchen sink. The previous owner also installed a reversible tow ball in the bed for a gooseneck trailer and CB antenna. The best part is that it only has 17,000 miles on it. Basically brand new, not even broken in. I got it for half of what they go for new. I am so stoked. Behold my new love.

    Here are a couple of pics of the travel trailer from a recent trip to Sedona. That is my beautiful wife and our two bada$$ boxers. My 2010 1/2 ton was none to happy about towing it there. Hence the new rig.

    Arugh Dulley....

    I prefer a SRW myself.

    Still a sweet looking ride. Them Duramax Allison setups are sweet running diesel. My dad has it and it doesn't sounds like a diesel it doesn't smell like a diesel and it sure doesn't run like a diesel.

    If you're going to have an automatic it needs to be an Allison.

    Al Gore can kiss my rosey red bleeeeeep. I have honestly never been this excited about a vehicle. For me this is the ultimate Man Truck.

    You know now you have to jump up to a 37' Fifth Wheel with that big truck.

    Nice truck man. Glad you chose a chevy.

    Got a 08 2500hd with duramax and allisons. I love it. Use it to tow a 35' toy hauler (not trailer in the photo)

    A Dooley (Chevy spelling:confused:) was not what I was looking for and would have preferred a SRW also. It is kind of growing on me though. I have noticed that people move out of the way of this truck more that my 1/2 ton SRW.

    With the dual rear wheel set up it should ride and tow much better than a single rear wheel set up when the weight is on.
