Used both as worked trucks, as long as someone knowledgeable is doing the servicing they are always serviceable.

Yep, I always loved when Chevy says most of their vehicles are still on the road. That's right cause very few actually make it home.

Chevy owner, huh? Was the boat dealer on a dirt road?

Most likely he dropped the tranny when he shifted from D (dirt) to P (pavement).

My transmission went out on my 2007 Z-71 at 73,000 miles,, the dealer had a new one installed in 3 days,,, it did not cost me a cent. They actually do honor the 100,000 powertrain warranty. Did mine anyway.

Mostly engine/transmission issues (the old Chevy diesels were shit) and a lot of electrical system failures. They also couldn't carry the same amount of weight without something breaking, be it a spring pack or a bearing. They just weren't built as heavily--which is why they drive beautifully, especially the little ones. The gas Fords are great, just avoid the 6.0 diesel and you're good.

3 weeks a year for the heavy grain trucks (forgot to add, these are 70s vintage trucks that have been on continuous use since the 70s), 15-20 hours a day of constant running carrying heavy (probably overloaded most of the time as well) loads.

Year round for the regular farm trucks.

Anyone who acts like farm equipment doesn't need to be tough and reliable to put up for those 3 weeks of harvest hasn't ever been around farming.

You've had one experience with one kind of hard use, I've had a different one. Our fords failed to hold up, so did your chevys. Yet somehow the world keeps spinning.

Does the computer controlling an Allison transmission "learn" like some other controllers do?

If so, I'm wondering if the sudden change in driving method (no load city driving to towing on the highway) might have been a contributing factor.

Likely the transmission lines. They have been a issue for years. Non SAE hose so the crimps aren't correct and its not if they will leak but when. Do not replace with factory parts as the issue has never been fixed. Google duramax transmission lines (hoses) and you'll see what I mean.

The Fuck you say?

The hd pickups are the smallest vehicles that use an Allison. The 1000 is essentially a 2400 series with different gearing. The 2400is used in municipal transit busues and light dump trucks.
