Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Looking at a 1998 Chevy 3500 diesel wrecker.   How are they for towing and how do they hold up?

1 Answer

17,965

It most likely has the 6.5 turbo diesel. They are ok work horses. Decedent's of the old 6.2 military diesel. But I would prefer most power strokes and any Cummins over it. Power wise it tends to be towards the bottom
