We purchased our 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Diesel pickup used in 2004, but with only 5000 miles on it. It came fully loaded with everything except a built-in DVD player. We were looking for a truck with more pulling power for towing our camper, plus added passenger room. We were thrilled to find this truck. It had everything we wanted. It is a ¾ ton, it has a crew cab (full 4 doors), diesel for more power and better gas mileage, and it was a stylish, simple black color. It even has leather seats. Seriously, I feel like I am riding in luxury with this truck. It is our leisure vehicle.
It's towing power is fantastic, we never have to worry about having enough power for our camper or our car hauler loaded with whatever we can fit on it. While we only have 1 child, the added room of the crew cab is fabulous. We didn't care for the idea of leather seats at first, but now we enjoy them. They are so easy to keep clean. This has been a very dependable truck, never a problem. We keep up with the regular maintenance on it and it treats us well. We even towed our camper 4000 miles round trip to Florida and back and it was a breeze with our truck. We had plenty of room and didn't have a single problem.
