My new ride-2003 2500HD, LB7, ZF-6


Here she is, my "new to me" tow rig/current DD. It's a 2003 Chevrolet 2500HD. It has the LB7 Duramax and ZF-6 6 speed MANUAL trans. It's an LS with cloth seats, rubber floor mat, no cruise control, and manual shift tcase. The only thing I didn't get on my wish list was a long bed but I figured the 6 speed was worth it. It has bald 265/70r17 tires. A PO swapped in a leather back seat. Oh and only 175,000 miles. This will be a slow build. Mainly just posting to document as I do stuff to it. Long term plans are: get front bumper redone in black bed liner and also rocker panels and bed, EFI live tuning some day, stacks, and a toolbox. Oh and a solid axle swap if the ifs gives me too much trouble.
Just for you @bent72 look! Two shifters.
Its got a spectre cold air intake with a k&n filter. I think a 4" exhaust with the muffler deleted. There's also a PPE boost dohicky in the waste gate hose.

Odometer read roughly 60,000 so I'm guessing its got 160,000. It was all stock with bald 235s and an old school warn winch bumper and 6,000 lb winch with...
