#107 of 109 Day Running Lights
Mar 13, 2004 (1:56 pm)
I have a 2003 GMC Sierra 2500HD Duramax. The passenger side Day Running Light will not stay on. I have replaced the bulb and cleaned the contacts and it works for awhile, then goes out again. Anyone else have this problem?
#108 of 109 Sierra 2500 HD Duramax towing
Mar 20, 2004 (9:39 pm)
I am currently towing my 7k (lbs.) 5th wheel with my 2001 GMC 1500 5.3 Ext. Cab short bed truck. I'm considering going to the Sierra 2500 HD Duramax Crew Cab Short Bed as my next truck. Does anyone have any information on the 2004 Crew Cab short bed size? Is it long enough to accomodate the 5th Wheel and hitch? What is the towing capacity of this engine with the Allison automatic transmission?

To answer a few ?'s.
The bed length of the CC SB is 6.5 ft, the same as your current SB, so if yours works for towing so will the new one.
Overall vehicle length is about 239 inches.
When equipped with the HD towing package, the Duramax/ Allison combo has trailer towing capacity of 12K lbs for hitch mounts, 5th wheel ratings vary depending on application, but figure around 15K.
