Where's the ladder?

I don't know about every where else but here in SE Pa. I have been seeing the med duty GMs everywhere.

How long till we see one of those with a HD factory bed on the back... Now that would be an awesome truck.


What power train do they run? Engine/Trans?


I'd like one in Tan please...

Looks very nice! I see several of them every day myself.


I know a conractor that has 5 of them (all 2 wheel drive regular cab) He still has 11 F550`s that he is trading in as they wear out.


I was talking to him about them, He stated that they are twice the truck as the much smaller Ford F-550. He claimed that these trucks can haul 2 ton or more over what the F-550 can.


But he is having a problem with the exhaust brake closing to heat the engine up when they are already warm. (This problem has only showed up on two of the five) GM is working on it.


However that is just one persons opinion. I have not talked with any other owners.

Duramax/Allison or ZF 6 speed is what I have heard.


But no 590 ft/lb tq for this big beast. This truck is built for towing those 40 foot fifth wheel trailers.

They have an inline 6 DMax in them. have not seen a 4wd or one with a standard bed. Have tinted the windows on a few 4500 for a company that makes haulers out of them.
