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 I 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 and roof rack. 

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 $22,500. 

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.

GM dealers unhappy about pickup prices

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 17:44:00 EST

The backlash is beginning. Following General Motors' price hike of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra last week, dealers across the country are expressing their ire over increasing prices in the face of rebates and discounts on trucks from Ford and Ram.
Speaking to Automotive News, Sam Pilato, the general manager at Dimmitt Chevrolet in Clearwater, FL, Silverados are "selling very poorly." W. Carrol Smith, the president of Monument Chevrolet in the heart of truck country, Texas, said, "[GM's] position is that the vehicle stands on its own and it doesn't need a bigger rebate. That's not what the market is telling us."
According to AN, that's the general attitude amongst Chevy and GMC dealers across the country, where the twin pickups are getting butchered in sales by competitors offering up to $9,000 off their sticker prices. Part of the problem for GM is that its trucks are arriving on the market near the end of the current F-150's lifecycle, a fact that Ford has taken advantage of.

GM renders new Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon pickups

Thu, 08 Aug 2013 11:28:00 EST

At a series of industry seminars in Traverse City, MI today, General Motors executive vice president Dan Ammann gifted us with our first glimpse of the upcoming midsize pickup range from Chevrolet and GMC.
Just two slivers of nose are all we can see of the soon-to-be announced Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon, though the teaser image does make plain that the pair will follow the styling cues (at least up front) found on big brothers Silverado and Sierra.
GM hasn't given us much in the way of detail in its ultra-brief press release that accompanied the teaser image, which is to be expected. We're told only that the pair of trucks are designed to be "capable, versatile and fuel-efficient alternatives to full-size pickups" and that production will start sometime in 2014, at the Wentzville, MO assembly center.

GM SUV window switch recall urges owners to park vehicles outside

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 13:30:00 EST

It's not unusual for there to be a lag between an automaker announcing a recall and the official documentation showing up on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. So it's no surprise that a recent GM campaign took about a month to appear in its official capacity. However, there appears to be some big differences between the two reports with potential safety implications.
In late June, GM announced that it needed to recall 181,984 examples of the Chevrolet Trailblazer, Buick Rainier, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7x from the 2005-2007 model years, plus the 2006 Chevy Trailblazer EXT and 2006 GMC Envoy XL. The new documents paint a slightly different picture with 184,611 needing repaired and different model years listed.
The reason for the fix is still the same, though. It's possible for fluid to contact the master power window switch module in the driver's door, which can corrode the part. Eventually this could cause a short circuit, leaving the buttons inoperable and potentially leading to a fire. But the new NHTSA documents add an important note: "A fire could occur even while the vehicle is not in use. As a precaution, owners are advised to park outside until the remedy has been made."
