We used to own this 98 454 K3500 Dually but sold it as the mileage was getting a bit high and replaced it with this 2015 HD2500. The old truck got 9/15 for mileage while the new is 11.9/21 so a nice move in the right direction. Otherwise they are about identical in pulling power.

Wow, another super clean truck.
My 1989 roll back came out of New Jersey some years ago and has rust and a gazillion hours on it, but not a lot of miles. The wipers and power window motors are worn out and barely move...
454, carburated...air cleaner has a big sticker proclaiming GM paid a big fee for this not having a throttle body. 4 speed 4.36? gears ? Motor is quite tired and needs a refresh, but I have a "few" other projects ahead of that. As long as it runs and moves, it stays together.

Presently:

Bought this one from my engine builder/race buddy. It was his racer chaser. I bugged him for 14 years before he agreed to sell it.

Currently approaching the quarter-million mile mark.

That's about where I'm at with "Max". 22.5 mph on the flat at highway speeds, 12.5 pulling the trailer (7500 lbs with the car in it).

But the power! Man! I have to be careful if the roads are wet because it will roll through first gear and start smoking the tires in second.

That's with a Bullydog programmer on the second setting. Lets out a little wisp of grey smoke (I call it "Rolling Charcoal") and I'm gone...…

Keith that is a twin to my trailer. Looks like a nice combo.
