Chevy Silverado 2006 Duramax LBZ 6.6L Turbo Diesel V8, 2WD, Regular Cab

Mileage: 262,854

Sealed bids due October 23, 2023. Full information and bidding instructions below.

Turbo Diesel V8 with tow package.


Very well maintained truck for sale. We’ve put a lot of work into this truck in the past couple of years to set it up for heavy towing. This pickup has dual rear tires and a ball hitch for gooseneck trailers. We’ve used this to haul a 13,000 pound trailer and the truck is rated up to 15,900 lbs. with the gooseneck. The bed of the truck was removed and replaced with a flat bed. The vehicle has little rust damage, given its mileage and age, and has been rust-proofed in the last 2 years.
