Been reading here for a while, and posted a while back
regarding buying a CTD for heavy towing.
I found a truck in the paper, a 01, HO, 6speed, loaded
like new with 30K on the odometer. Paid 21K.
After being high pressured at every dealers lot I walked on
( I hate that)
and driving a *lot*
of different trucks this one seemed like a find.
Obviously pampered and well maintained, tight.
Had a gooseneck hitch installed and hooked/loaded up the 4horse and
took it out ----what a torqe monster, damn thing will pull any hill in
any gear I want, in the mountains mind you. Puts the ol 454
to shame, and it is a runner.
Put a solid ton in the box and hardly knew it was there,, on the
highway at any speed. Not real fun for errands in town, will keep the
chevy for that.
So how did I do? (no remorse here)
I've read the owners manual and would like to
get a shop manual, any suggestions. Any maintance
tips/suggestions appreciated. How's the dual battery
