Gassers are good in 1/2-tons and smaller, IMO. Won't own anything 3/4-ton or bigger without the diesel.

I got a similar truck when my 03 6.0 was in the shop as a loaner. I was less than impressed, would barely get out of its own way power wise. I got 7-10 Mpg pulling my 18ft car trailer around with fence post and stuff.

i just drove our work last weekend, 2001 4x4 single rear wheel and it was joke... it has 126k on it but i think my wifes chevy 1500 2wd is a better work truck.

we also have a 1997 chevy with a 454 and a set of duals...it too is useless...big trucks need diesel power.
