Very Impressed so Far

I am new to the diesel thing so I am learning. The one thing that intrigues me is that the temp gauge stays at 160 for along time. It will move up to 180 after 10 minutes or so, but if you stop and shut it off for a short while it is back to 160! Only after driving for 20 minutes or so at highway speed does it get to 210. Outside temp has been in the mid thirties mostly here and the heater is good and toasty warm even at the low temps on the gauge.

Have a RST CCSB arriving any day. My two sons both have Duramax CCSB, 1 LLY and 1 LBZ, so I have options when I need to tow something heavy. I'm looking forward to the tow experience with my sleds and my boat, and decent mpg when I'm not hooked up.

Had mine a couple weeks now (LTZ Z71), just over 1k miles. Love it so far, it is nothing compared to my L5P Dually but I bought it for mileage and work travel. It is doing exactly what I bought it for!

I like the concept of a mid size diesel pick up. Not so sure about having another interval to worry about (the belt). It's got to be a 5-6 hour labor operation.
