He runs a 8.1 L at work and is a dog compared to his 6.0 , maybe just a sick puppy , who knows .

Best suggestion , see the truck you like , but it . 1 or 2 mpg really isnt going to make much difference anyway .

if the 8.1 he was driving was a bigger comercial truck that would explain it, I was just lookign at engine ratings, for what ever reason the pickups have a lot more HP and torque then the comercial trucks. I looked at 2003, it showed 340HP and 455 torque, but comercial truck was 225 hp and 350 torque

I'm going to check this one out tonight.

maybe this is the deal I was meant to get

03 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 SLT 4WD Duramax Diesel Automatic 431 chevrol - $3000 (algonac)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://detroit.craigslist.org/mcb/cto/2240248633.html

I should send them a check with my money before I even see the vehicle just so it doesn't sell out from under me, that and I'm sure they are in some other state and garantee that this is not a scam and my money will be safe and they will deliver the car for free in that cost... LOL

Yeah, but that one is the 7.3 which is a great engine. The 6.0 on the other hand, absolute junk! We'll see where they end up. For the right price, I could learn to like any one of those.
