    Well I had to barrow a friends truck!!! ( 2001 Silverado LS 2500HD ext cab short bed with the 6L) Needless to say I feel in love with this truck!!!! It has much more room and better miliage then I thought. My friend is selling this truck!! So now I'm concidering getting it!!

    At this point I was just wondering what are the pros and cons about this truck?? My freind has always told me how he was impressed with it's towning. I will be doing quite a few jobs that will require towing and heavy loads. So I was wondering how this truck stacks up to like the Ford and the Ram! Is this a good year and model?? Thanks for the info in advance!
    Forget about Dodge. The only Ford thats a better tower would be their diesel(And I'm a Ford guy, love my Ranger )

    You said you have a large family. The best choice I've made was getting a crew cab for my kids instead of extended. And the HD is great, but is this a vehicle you really need for heavy towing, hauling? Or do you really just need and 1500 light duty with better mileage? Just make sure it fits your lifestyle. Good LucK!
