Absolutely A Work Horse — I enjoy this truck for towing. It has been a great family vehicle as I have actually had my girlfriend and two kids in it and we went on a trip out of state and hit a snow storm. We had to drive 40 miles in 4 wheel drive and the truck performed magnificently and kept us safe.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Work Truck — Fuel costs is high but big block v8 is powerful. Parts are cheap and service is universally available. Old reliable. Paint is also good. Maintenance is doable at home. No one else has the 3500 model around. you can't really do anything to a Chevrolet big block v8 that will make it more fuel efficient

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Chevy For Life — Truck is amazing, it's a real work horse. The motor is bullet proof. The transmission still shifts as crisp as it did when it came off the lot. Couldnt ask for a better towing rig, short of my 08 Duramax.
