Moving closer to the modern age.
Just picked up a 2006 CC/LB K2500 GMC Duramax/Allison.
Higher miles but very clean body, has 277K on it.
Looks all stock, still has OEM air box and exhaust.

Have to get some better pics but it's a plane jane white work truck, just what I wanted.
One option I would have liked is cruise control but will add it.

So much quieter on the highway than the old 6.5L truck.

Looks good. You should get some heavy duty use out of it. I love the way you can drain the Allison and change the filter like you change an oil filter.

Nice find! My bed is falling apart going to patch it, and put a new rear fender and go from there for now. I'm either going to save and bite the bullet and spend 6k on a hauler body or I'm just going to box out the frame with aluminum and put a deck plate on with full polished aluminum fenders. Or I may sell it and buy a used 2500 denali.

It's rust free, I  bought it out of Alabama but don't know all the history.

Planning on full EGR delete and a tow tune because...….needs head gaskets. No
Not totally surprised as I had sneaking suspicions that may be why it was at the auction.

So lope tune, 200% injectors, phat single turbo, crank up leveling keys, drop the rear, 22x12 force wheels, bed stack, LED lights, DIRTYMAX stickers.....

NOT! Going to keep mostly stock with some improvements for reliability and efficiency.

I don't know if you remember Stretch ( Bill) on this forum, Can't think of his name on the pick-up truck forum. Anyway, he did his own head gasket at a friends house after he found a leak and was able to do the job himself. Last I talked with him he was still driving his 71/72 DMax.

It was Mistral on the pick-up forum now that I remember.
