i bought my 26BHS and didn't like how my 2013 Silverado 1500 was pulling it. while it was within it's payload/towing range, the truck seemed to struggle. since we are planning a trip through CO/WY/MT and Yellowstone this summer, i knew i wouldn't be comfortable towing with that setup through the mountains. i wanted peace of mind.
i'm GM loyal, the Duramax engine/Allison transmission has a great reputation as a reliable, powerful setup, and my friend happens to be the general manager at our local Chevy dealership, so i got a GREAT price.
i was SHOCKED when i pulled the TT the first time with the 2500HD Duramax. you barely even know it's back there. plus, now i have enough truck to step up to that 5'er in a few years.
