Hi,

I'm in the very early stages of thinking about trading in my much loved 2001 Silverado 2500HD for a 2011 Silverado 2500HD. Only reason? The rear doors on the extended cab fold flat on against the body and the 60/40 rear bench seat. I could actually take myself, *2* other people and the dog! :D

Just started looking into the new 2011 since they supposedly have beefier suspension, more power.

Anyone have any feedback (pro or con)?

I'm interested in everything people have to say!

Thanks in advance...

I also have a 2008 Silverado 2500HD and I love mine, too. I haul a 2H GN with dressing room and towing with this truck is so nice - very stable and powerful. Of course the ride is much better while towing (a bit stiff when not towing) but it doesn't bother me. I think the trim is nice and the fold-back rear doors are really handy. It is the plushest pickup I've ever owned!

I forgot to mention - if you are planning on taking 2 other people I don't think the rear seat is too comfortable for a long haul. But if you're thinking of using it for extra people tagging along to the occasional show it might not be too bad.

Suggestion: For better handling and better ride, replace the tires with ones of better quality, especially if you'll be driving on gravel roads or in snow.
