I say Kansas/North Dakota because I live back in Kansas, but am going to school at UND up here in Grand Forks.

I currently don't have a duramax, but really want to get into one. I currently have a 1996 K1500 Z-71 with the 5.7 vortec and working on full bolt ons, along with a custom tune. All original 85k miles. Bought her with 36k on it.

I'm naturally looking at LB7's, because they are less expensive, but the whole injector problems kind of scare me away. I'd really like to pick one up with the 6-speed manual, but would take an Allison.

Anyways, great site!

God luck on your hunt. I would highly reccommend the Ally if you do any kind of towing. It is a dream to tow with!

Here's some pics of my current ride. I swore I'd never sell it, but the more I learn about Duramax's, I must have one haha.

These were from a quick car wash job

I got a tad over 40k out of my STT's. Great for a mud tire, or so I think.

This new set isn't wearing near as good, as I spend 600+miles on I-29 with the cruise set on 80. It'll still average almost 20mpg if there's no wind though.

I've already been through a transmission with this too. Damn 60e's...
