so the old red crew cab dually was gettin pretty tired after many years of trusty trailer pullin so i started lookin for a duramax dually a couple weeks ago. this is what i ended up with.





its an '04 gmc 3500 sle crew cab lb7 duramax/allison. put my simulators on, came w the grille & super awesome redneck diamond plate/flamed/pre patina'd rally stripes on the hood & gate, the obvious cowl induction hood. which is steel/thank god. interior is nice, 6 disc bose in dash, power buckets/console, all the sle stuff, etc... 5th wheel hitch, reciever w controller, spray in bedliner, blah blah blah. got an average 18 mpg from d.c. to my shop, seems to do @ 15 w the trailer loaded.

plans are mcgagheys 2" spindles & 3" keys up front & shackles & hangers out back for 7" w a c notch. 19.5" 058 eagles or big hole alcoas w 245/70 tires and a programmer for now.
