I am selling my 2006 GMC 2500 HD Crew Cab Turbo Diesel Sport Side/Step Side "Duramax SS".  I purchased this truck new and have the original window sticker and all of the service records for everything that was ever done to it.  It is not a factory Sport Side/Step Side "Duramax SS".  I had the Sport Side/Step Side added when I damaged one side of the original Wide Side bed.  Instead of having it repaired I had the Sport Side/Step Side bed installed.  It may be the only GMC 2500 HD Crew Cab Sport Side/Step Side anywhere in the USA.  I then added the Juice with Attitude Programmer, 20" chrome rims and tires, 5" exhaust, 3" lift kit, Rhino Liner, Top Hat Tri-Fold Bed Cover, step side running boards, fender flares, roof rack, undercoat and rust proof.  These accessories add up to about $4000.

I am the original owner of the truck and I originally purchase the truck to haul my three horse trailer to deliver imported horses from the New York USDA Quarantine to our Indiana Quarantine.  However, I was only able to make about a half dozen trips before the economy crashed.  The importing of horses slowed down so much that there was no more hauling available for me to do.  Therefore, the majority of the miles on the truck are simply from my driving back and forth to work from our country home.  We made several long trips delivering the Friesian horse foals that we raised on our farm to their new owners all over the midwest, all light towing. 

Over the course of the time that I have owned the truck I have added all of the after market items that you see listed.  I have included an NADA printout with the current market value of the truck and the value of the added accessories.  The current Clean Retail price with all of the accessories added is $27,150.  The Clean Trade-In price is about $22,875.  I am asking less than the Clean Trade-In price.  I am selling the truck for $19,995. 

The truck has never been abused.  I have only used the highest "HOT" setting on the Juice with Attitude about 4 or 5 times.  I tested it for it's 0-60 mph capability after I put the new Nitto Terra Grappler tires on it and it went 0 to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds.   I mainly use the Juice with Attitude for its reading of engine codes.  It reads the engine codes every time you start the truck.  It also allows you to clear the engine codes if they are not critical. 

I purchased the Juice with Attitude for the improved gas mileage.  I am getting approximately 15 mpg going to work and back.  I get about 19 to 20 mpg on the highway, depending upon how fast I go.  If I drive the Toll Road at about 70 mph I only get about 18 mpg.  If I drive the state highways at about 55 or 60 mph I can get the 20 mpg.  

I installed a new front drivers side bottom leather seat cover because the original leather seat cover had cracked and ripped.  The new cover looks amazing. 

As I mentioned above I have all of the repair records and there has never been any major work required to be done to the truck at all.  The truck has never had any major problems at all.  Most of the service calls were simply to replace glow plugs when the Juice with Attitude indicated that they were bad.  The number 5 glow plug broke when it was being removed so the new one was installed outside the engine and is attached to the exhaust shroud where it will not affect anything when it glows.  The truck almost does not need any glow plugs since it takes less than 3 seconds to heat up the glow plugs and start the engine in cold weather.  It almost does not even need to use the glow plugs at all when it is warm outside.   The tires have always been rotated every 7500 miles and I got 65,000 on the last set of Nitto Dune Grapplers.  The current tires, Nitto Terra Grapplers, only have about 5,000 miles on them and look like new.  The oil, oil filter and fuel filter have always been changed when the computer showed that it was needed.   It has had new tie rod ends and idler arms installed.   

The truck runs and drives excellently.  This is the most comfortable truck I have ever ridden in and a real pleasure to drive.  Except for the few minor imperfections I have mentioned above the truck is almost perfect.  It is a real eye catcher.  I cannot tell you how many times someone stops me on the street to tell me how "SWEET" this truck is.  You will not see yourself coming and going.  I see hundreds or thousands of wide side 2500 HD Crew Cabs but I have only seen one Sport Side/Step Side 2500 HD Crew Cab.  I cannot even find another one on the internet.  This truck is unique and rare.  It is worth the little extra cost. 

The truck is sold as is where is.  Buyer is responsible for shipping. 

The truck is being advertised for sale locally also so if it sells locally this listing with e-bay may be ended early.  Don't let it get away.  There is only one like it.

GM expanding Lansing Lambda CUV plant

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 11:01:00 EST

Considering that crossovers are a rapidly growing portion of the US auto market, it's not surprising to hear that General Motors is preparing to build even more of them. The company is investing $63 million to expand its Lansing Delta Township Assembly plant that builds Lambda platform CUVs like the Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave.
According to GM, the expansion will add roughly 263,000 extra square feet of space to the plant. Of that, 181,000 square feet will be for an updated body shop with cutting-edge robots. There will also be 54,000 square feet of additional room in the paint shop and 28,000 square feet of more area for general assembly.
GM isn't saying as much, but there is the possibility that this extra space could allow for additional models produced at the factory. Cadillac reportedly dropped plans to build a three-row SUV on the Lambda platform earlier this year, however, dealers for the luxury brand were recently pitched the possibility of adding large and small CUVs, an ATS convertible or a sedan below the ATS.

GM recalling over 243,000 crossovers over possible seat belt defect

2010 Buick Enclave - Click above for high-res image gallery
The summer of 2010's recall hit parade continues unabated today, with General Motors having just announced that it is asking 243,403 owners of its 2009-2010 Lambda crossovers to bring their three-row haulers in for inspection. The culprit? Second-row seat belts in select Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook CUVs have "failed to perform properly in a crash."
According to GM, a second-row seat-side trim piece is to blame, as it can impede the upward rotation of the buckle after the seat is folded flat. As a result, if the buckle makes contact with the seat frame, cosmetic damage can occur, potentially requiring additional force to operate the buckle properly. So far, no great shakes, but in the process of applying that additional force, the occupant may push the buckle cover down to the strap, potentially revealing and depressing the red release button. As a result of this, the belt may not latch, or in certain cases, it may actually appear to be latched when, in fact, it isn't.

370,000 new Silverado and Sierra pickups recalled over fire risk

Fri, 10 Jan 2014 19:45:00 EST

General Motors announced late Friday that it will recall around 370,000 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra fullsize pickups from the 2014 model year over a possible fire risk. The recall covers select 4.3-liter V6 and 5.3-liter V8 models, which can evidently suffer engine compartment fires due to the overheating of exhaust components. GM notes that the fire issue may be preceded by a check engine light and an "engine power reduced" message on the driver information display.
Thus far, GM is aware of eight fires stemming from this problem (although only three of those incidents affected customer-owned vehicles), and all of the fires were reported in areas with "very cold weather." GM is urging owners to not leave their vehicles unintended while idling. No injuries have resulted from the fires in question.
The Detroit-based automaker has pledged to start mailing out recall letters on January 16. The fix, which involves software reprogramming, is estimated to be a 20-minute repair, and will be made free of charge.
