    Default JUst aquired A 2003 Silverado 2500

    I just recieved this Tow Pig with 210XXX for the price of free!! The trucks a crewcab and has the 6.0 Engine. Its toward the end of its life and my 4 cyl Ford Ranger is my daily driver/worktruck but im going to utilize the Silverado to pull my 5000 lb trailer and to make trips to the landfill. She starts and runs with no worry of a breakdown but the trannys slowly dying and I need a new gauge cluster. The gas guage and tach don't work. Also sometimes the speedo also quits working. My mechanic basicly told me that I shouldn't do a tranny flush because the sludgy crap is whats holding it together. but the truck has been towing trailers since new and wasnt maintained well so what can you expect?
