First time Diesel owner!

Guess that makes me a newb to everything. I bought a 2012 Dodge 1500 this year. Very nice truck but didn't pull my horse trailer worth a damn so I began to investigate and decided I needed a Dodge 2500 Cummins.

But, during my search, this is what I found, and I fell in love the first time I towed my horses with it. This truck is a BEAST!!!!!

I do not know if that link worked to my facebook pic of it or not.

Anyway, It's a 2007.5 Chevy 2500HD Z71 4WD Duramax 6.6 LMM with Allison Transmission.

It has every option available stock except a multi disk changer. Even has the DVD player and the Nav system. Love this truck.

2007.5 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Z71 4WD 6.6 Duramax/Allison Trans.
