Wasn't sure what to expect.
November 2, 2017
2001 Chevy Silverado HD2500 LS with the 5 speed automatic Allison transmission and the huge V8 8100 Vortec. Had my heart set on trading my 2009 Chevy Silverado for a Tahoe, but found this little gem. Was not in the best shape cosmetically, and has had a few tweaks to it. The stock exhaust has been changed, and now has a shorty shotgun style that has a low hum at 50mph. She has a laundry list of things that need to be replaced and fixed, and was driven hard. However, despite all that, she still has plenty to give. The MPG is about the same as what my 2009 was given me (14CITY / 19HWY) and she does run a bit hot on the long commute (3 hours drive.) As far as towing, I am not sure. Signs have pointed that she was pulling 5th wheel duty for a while (custom rigged trailer connections)so I am sure she could tow anywhere from 10.5k to 12,000 lbs easy. All and all, I am very impressed despite the hard mileage she has had (almost 200,000) and I hope that with some TLC, she will be able to do that, and more.
