I owned a 2008 Chevy Duramax and towed a 25' FB Ocean Breeze. I got 14-15mpg towing and about 20-24 on the highway. One other reason to own this truck. We were involved in a horrific accident when someone pulled right out in front of us coming back from Mt. Whitney. Both airbags deployed. 50mph into a 1 ton flatbed. My wife and I walked away unhurt. Truly amazing. I have since replaced it with a 2015 2500HD 4x4 towing a 27' International Onyx FB. Getting about 13-14mpg towing. Love this truck. Worth buying one.

Does the Chevy 2500 4x4 have independent front suspension or a live axle like the Ford?

Just got a 2015 HD Duramax Crew Short Bed and I have been playing with the ProPride setup for our 30' Bunk and decided I needed the longer drop shank. I have the 1,400 pound bars as I previously used. How did you set yours up? Starting truck and trailer level and then raising the jack it drops the rear about 2-3 inches. Pulling the springs up I don't see the front end moving at all. It just appears to lift the back end back to the original height.

So are you starting lower so that when the bars are drawn up it leaves some compression on the rear? How much lower? How much drop at the rear when done?

I am keeping the ProPride mainly for the anti-sway and perhaps I really don't need to pull the springs up that much, maybe draw them up half way leaving an inch or so drop on the rear with the trailer level.

Thoughts? Thank you!
