Re: Gm 6.0?

A half ton can't haul it's own shadow! Driving one is what I imagine what slow death feels like! I can throw my little tool box in a half ton and it won't get over even a small pass over 30MPH, the Duramax 1 ton won't drop below the speed limit and it's heavier than a 1/2 ton and 3/4 put together!

    the one ton Duramax weighs less than you think. A Dodge four wheel drive one ton dualie standard shift weighs a touch over 8,000lb, and that over thousand more than a similar equipped Chevy. I know this for a fact because we weighed them at work. You have to know this to set up a dyno.

    The one ton Duramax I'm speaking of has a heavy duty crane body and crane, loaded with tools in every nook and cranny, it's 12,000 empty so I'm guessing I'm rolling close to 15,000 ish.
