CT Newbie

Hey Guys,

I'm a diesel newbie, went from a Mustang and a Grand Cherokee to a 2500HD Crew Cab with a 6" lift back in March. I bought the truck as it sits with the exception of the new radio. Decided to go diesel after my group of friends started to convert over from gas trucks a few years back and had nothing bad to say about the new duramax's. I don't know too much about diesel's, but I'm ready and willing to learn. Got hosed when I bought it by the dealer when I purchased her. Had nothing but issues the first 6 months, she spent 4 months of the first 6 at the dealer and it was really starting to give me a bad taste of diesel life. Knock on wood everything has been good since Aug and I'm not regreting anything now.
