Yeah a 1/2 ton diesel would be great! It's a shame that GM is suffering so much!

Sad part is, first numbers were the same as the LB7.

6.5L in my 1994 GMC Yukon...placard on the door says 1500; That's the 1/2 ton chassis. Great truck; great motor I believe it was also an option on the 1500 series pickups

There's a guy at work with a 6.5L 1500 pickup, it's a turd (as they all were)

Too bad about the new ones, I guess it'll take another $100 spike in crude oil to spur interest again
