I don't own one, but my father-in-law does, and he lives just down the road a bit. His is a 2003 Sierra 2500HD 8.1/Allison EC LB 2WD 3.73.

Hey, whats up 8.1? Did you dyno yours? Get any work on that N-Fab pre-runner bar yet?


Scheduled to be on the Dyno is 2 weeks. I am going to run one with the 35's and one without. Just to see if the hp/tq are different. I am expecting them to be lower because of the rotating mass. Edited by: 1BADHD

I have a 2000 3500 7.4L 4X4 and love it. Been trouble free for 32000 miles. But, alas, I am working on a deal for a 2003 Ext. Cab D/A SB 4X4. The 2003 model year rebates of $5000 and GM employee discount are too tempting.


My 3500 Classic body style has served me well, and I will miss it. Just a week or two ago I got 16 MPG on one leg of a trip. Truck has 4.10 rear end too!

Do these count???


Previous 1991 S10 with 2.8 V6 traded at 315,000 miles. Never touched the engine internalks and it still got over 21mpg without using any oil.


Now the gasser in the driveway is a 2001 S10 with the 4.3 V6. 65k on this one, I miss the 2.8 V6!!!

Have a 2002 yukon xl with the 8.1.... drinks oil. 1 quart every thousand miles....
19,000 miles on her now... Been to the dealer 3 times for "check engine oil level" light. They changed the manifold bolts the last time in???


Anyway, my 2001 D/A sierra has had less problems....... I would have bought the D/A in the yukon if GM made one.....

2 of my sons have gassers!!! One has a 1/2 ton 2001 GMC ext cab short bed 4X4, and the other one has a 2001 Chev HD ext cab 4X4 with a 8100 enging and Allison Tranny


The 8100 will pass everything but a gas station
. Neither of them have had any problems with their pickups.

Have a Chevy Kodiak C4500 with a Monroe VersaHauler Bed. Tranny is the Allison 1000. Rear end is 5.13. It's used for towing our Montana 5th wheel.


Ordered it in January this year and received it end of May. Immediately went out west (Seattle) to see our new granddaughter. Didn't have any problems. I'm getting 7 miles to the gallon.


Here's a picture taken at our first camp site.
