    You'll love it. I just bought an '04 crew a few months ago, first diesel, it's great.

    You'll also like the +/- 600 miles on a full tank!

    I love duramax's, just as long as they aren't the LB7 from 01-04.5.

    LLY's and LBZ's are where it's at.

    I do like the wheels though.

    WHY??? The LB7 is putting down some of the best numbers, the LLY is just starting to make the same power in the aftermarket world.



    Sweet truck man!

    I would assume, since Ryan is/was a GM tech., the LB7 is technically more difficult to work on, than the newer LLY/LBZ. I would
    guess that's how the opinion was formed, but I could be wrong.

    LB7 is where its at IMHO.. :D

    And to Cody... sweet truck!

    Yep thats why. 8 hours to swap injectors.....Probably could've gotten better at it, but we only had a handfull of trucks to service.

    The power potential will be there with the newer engines, there just aren't as many out there.

    But I work on International engines now.

    We just got an 06 lbz work truck and it is only managing 11-12 mpg never above 3000 rpm trying to stretch the gas out, might be the ladder rack, its fast though

    Sweet rig man, my dad and I took his shop truck for a spin the other day, a Duramax/Allison combo that was killer. It was pulling a trailer (for the first part of the play time) and he got into it going up a hill to get onto the freeway and it was chirpin' the rears. That Allison can put it down hard.
