2009 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Reviews

Overall, the truck seems to be quite nice. I have had GMC trucks in the past and this new one lives up to its reputation for a solid performer. I do have one beef, that is the shocks...for some reason GM does not pay enough attention to their shocks. They should contract w/Bilstein on their non-Z71 suspensions. I wind up replacing the stock shocks w/Bilstein's, makes the ride a bit firm, but definitely worth it.
