I HATE half tons. cant put a lump of coal in the back without it sagging, and they look weak. 3/4 ton has so many advantages... my wifes suburban has the 5.3 its not a bad motor. not great mileage but its a nice rig... thats plenty half ton for me

Havent posted this in a while and it seems pretty appropriate right now

doubt it. !/2 tons are lighter trucks and the power from a 6.0 to a 5.3 is minimal.
when everyone is outta gas or stopped for refuel youll pass em back.

I put a 1000lb can am atv 1000 in the back of my 1/2 ton 2 wheel drive and maybe its not as big as the lump of coal you've hauled around it barley sags and can hardly tell its in there. The LS series engines are the some of the best engines to date and fuel efficient as they come.
But hey, each there own
