My new hauler DURAMAX

Recommended Posts

Decided it was time for a better hauler to pull my trailer around. Found a super clean 2003 GMC Sierra 2500hd 4x4 Duramax. It should pull a trailer full of bikes like there is nothing there. I cant leave anything stock so for now im ordering a Diablo Predator programer and a 4 inch turbo back MBRP exhaust. Here are some pics enjoy!

i paid $19,900 for it with a full tank of diesel, its as clean as a new one. I have the window sticker and it sold for $41,000 when it was new.

I just ordered an exhaust like this one but i got mine of ebay a lot cheaper.

MBRP Installer Series Aluminized 4" Single Duramax Exhaust System (Turbo-Back)

there is a video clip towards the middle, sounds awesome. :yes:

Im still undecided on a programer so im researching more. Anyone have any imput on programers???

Same here, I recently bought THE BEAST, and it's only getting 10.8 MPG.....either something's wrong, or I need a chip and a couple other mods to keep the towing power, but increase the MPG.

As for the details, 08 F-450 SD. 6.4 Liter Detroit (Dual) Turbo Diesel V8.

I'd like more gas mileage, one cause it's easier on the wallet, and 2 I plan on taking a few road trips once I get the RV my truck will be towing, and I'll have that in about 3 days. :)

The Ford Powerstroke diesel engines are made by Navistar (International), not Detroit. The old GM 6.5 Liter diesels were made by Detroit, as far as I know, that is the last Detroit diesel engine offered in a pickup.

That's what I am here for, I need to find some way to use all the useless information that has logded itself in my brain. That is a nice truck though, that thing should be able to tow a 747 if you wanted to.

ya, found out today that some jackass, when he cut off the plug for the trailers power on my tow package, they clipped it off (yes cut it), ABOVE the coupler so that now, I not only have to buy a new 7 prong plug, but also a coupler and splice it back together....gladly I'm taking it in for 5th Wheel work tomorrow so I'm sure they will fix the situation.

      I know...I feel stupid for asking.  I find it impossible to use the thumb throttle with my thumb when I have the bars turned full right. I have to reach across the top and grab the throttle from the front with my fingers. It isn't very smooth and I can't help but think that there must be a technique, mod or adjustment for this. How do I get past this?

      New user and first time quad owner. I recently got a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500 and am really excited to start working on it! I work in IT for a living and am an experienced mechanic, so at least I am not starting at 0 haha.  Looking forward to hanging out and getting to know everybody!

      The needle sticks in the seat after setting for a day or 2 is there anything that can be done to keep this from happening besides shutting off the fuel and running the bowl empty before shutting the machine off.

      I'm selling my 2005 Forest River Work and Play 26DB Toy Hauler. Best I can do is $14,800 which is way less than I owe. My loss, your gain. I will pay off remainder of loan before I take money so title can be sent immediately upon release!
      Please contact me if you have any questions.
