year end deals are great.. New and a good discount...


but 2 wheel drive and lower end interiors are hard to find...


next is a 2 or 3 year old.. under 50k miles. but still harder to find.




Happy Shopping.

I purchased a 2013 2500HD 6.0l new after the new models came out. I stayed with gas because diesel didn't fit with how I use the truck the remaining portion of the year. It handles the weight of the trailer just fine and talking with 1500 series owners I'm finding the fuel economy is no different when towing. There is definitely a difference when empty. That said I like towing with the heavier truck much better than I did with my 1500.

I'm really liking the GMC 2500 Sierra. Seems to handle the road nicely.

I was in the same boat and we tested all of them. The Chevy ride the best but also cost more. Got a great deal on a new 2016 ltz in Alabama $54k but full loaded and we planned ahead and got the diesel. Love this truck.

We bought a 2012 Dodge Ram (2500) to pull our fiver (which we no longer have)....Saturday we had to move the truck but it would not start. As it turned out the issue was a TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Module) and our extended warranty would not cover it. Cost to replace? $1500. Imagine our surprise when we did a search to find out what this TIPM was and where it was located and instead we found hundreds and thousands of hits for it online.

Be aware.....the petitions for recall have been denied to date but there is a class action being brought against Chrysler.

Well, I ended up with a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 Duramax. 25,000 miles on her, and I got her for 38K. Seems them diesel engines last forever...

Nice! She's barely broke in.
