Located near Washington PA
2006 Chevy 2500HD LT 4x4 Duramax Diesel LBZ - no emissions
Crew cab, short bed, manual shift transfer case, Leather seats, spray in bed liner, snap on bed cover
2 Owners since new - my dad and I
currently 354,000 miles, yes that's right - 90% highway miles.
Royal Purple 15w40 Synthetic motor oil and K&N oil filters since 1st oil change, changed every 5000 miles
Fluids flushed and changed on schedule, always used Royal Purple synthetic fluids
Body is in great shape for a 10 year old truck, paint is good, no accidents ever.
Interior is also in great shape, driver seat show some wear on the side, other seats are excellent.
Engine is strong, doesn't burn oil, doesn't smoke. Its efficiently tuned with EFI-Live (40hp tune) keeping the stock transmission in mind.
Truck was 100% stock until about 290,000 miles, then the following mods were done:
-Head gaskets replaced with new style GM head gaskets with ARP head bolts
-40 hp EFI-Live tow tune installed with overhead gauges with aux switches
-4" Rancho lift with 17" H2 Wheels and 35" BFG all-terrain tires with about 50% tread remaining.
-Also have a set of chrome Ultra 20" wheels with 35" Nitto Terra-Grapplers, about 80% tread left that could be included for additional $$, these were my summer wheels. Or swap out for the current H2 wheels/BFG tires.
- New front steering components, ball joints, upgraded tie-rods
- Rear air bags with wireless controller
- New front wheel bearings and ABS sensors replaced
- New GM in-tank fuel pump due to leak at the connection
- New CURT 16,000lb trailer hitch
- New Master cylinder
- 8 new glow plugs
- Pioneer head unit with DVD player, GPS Nav, Satellite radio, back up camera, Bluetooth etc etc
- 20% window tint
- PCV re-routed
- EGR blocked and disabled with EFI-Live
- Nictane CAT fuel filter adapter
Within the last 30,000 miles, the following items were changed:
- New brakes pads, rotors, calipers all around. Stainless steel brake lines to all 4 calipers.
- New alternator, idler pulleys, serpentine belt, 2 new batteries.
- All fluids flushed and changed, including brake fluid
- New rear leaf springs, new Bilstein shocks all around, Sulastic rear shackles
Transmission is stock, never limped, doesn't slip, shifts just like new. Truck gets and honest 19 MPG highway at 70 mph with summer diesel blend, usually 17.5-18 with winter blend. This truck has never left me stranded and its super reliable. Yes it has higher miles, within the last year I've driven this truck to Atlanta twice, Long Island, Virginia Beach, Richmond twice, Indiana, Detroit, Charlotte, all over PA, Ohio and WV without any issues, its been a great truck. I wouldn't hesitate to hook up a camper or boat and head to the beach.
The bad: the light bulbs in the HVAC controls are burnt out, I think they can be replaced. One very small ding on the passenger side front quarter panel, just forward of the fender flare (seen in picture). The driver side rear lower quarter panel/fender flare has a small scuff towards the lower rear. Its barely noticeable. Truck has a small oil leak from the driver's side valve cover towards the rear. I notice a few drops when parked overnight. Probably about 1/2 quart every 5,000 miles, just haven't had the time to fix it yet. Fuel door has a tiny rust spot, 1/4 the size of a penny. Average under-body surface rust for a 10 year old truck in this area, nothing rusting through or bad.
Title in hand, this ad is the full story on the truck, please read it through. Serious inquiries only, open to serious offers. Not interested in dealing with low-ballers or tire kickers. Selling to upgrade to a newer truck which will last another 10 years, and hopefully be as reliable as this truck has been. Would consider a trade + cash for a 2011+ Duramax.
