Finally Got It!

After a week of waiting on roadyls to clear up I was finally able to get up and puck up the new ride. 2500HD SLT with the 6.0 vortex. Took it elk hunting today and it seems like it gets around really Well. I'm loving it.

    So far my average fuel mileage with 500 miles of highway and about 100 miles of town and off road driving my average is 15 mpg. So its a huge improvement from the 7.4 big block I have been driving around

    You have the new transmission, I have the four speed it gets 11 in the summer, as soon as I get a new computer I am having the ecu tuned by black bear performance.

    how many MPG's does black bear claim they can add? the 6 speed is nice. I have never had one before.

    For my truck 1 to 3 is average with 35 horse increase and smoother shifting. They have quite a following on the gm forums.
