Did the first oil change @ 1750 miles. The engine is a L5D and uses a PF-26 filter. Same quantity oil, but because of the access to the engine due to the tilt hood, it is WAY easier to pour in without oiling the valve cover. Absolutely the easiest oil change I've done in years-- truck sits high enough with nothing hanging down except transfer case so its a breeze to crawl under AND turn over to reach anything.
Did a little research on the axles made by Spicer, and discovered that the model # in this truck has a GAWR of 14K but GM shows it at 11K. Front has a rating of 9K but GM shows 7500. Must be some trickery by GM to allow usage of same components but rate them different for different models of the medium dutys.
Very happy with the truck-- it does everything we need and gets a lot of attention wherever we go-- not many CC 4X4 4500HD's out there yet I guess. I know we have the only one in our neck of the woods.
