    Sold the old tow rig and bought this one. Going to try my luck with a Duramax for a change. I've always been a Cummins guy but got tied of constantly fighting front end issues and transmission problems. Does anyone have good or bad things to say about Duramax/Allison combo? Just wondering what I have to look forward to.

    Had an 07 LBZ with an Allison and loved it. Never had 1 thing go wrong with it. Wish my Cummins now had an Allison

    Welcome to the Tow Rig Forum!

    Have an 05 LLY / Allison with 150k on it. No major issues... Solid setup. Driven daily since 05.

    A lifted GM IFS rides & handles great! ... but you have to rebuild it every 3,000 miles... Lol. My next truck will be a Solid Axle for sure. A Cummins/Allison, GM body, GM interior, Ford Suspension & Axles would be my perfect truck.

    I've heard good things about the GM Duramax/ Allison combo and that is why I went this route. Glad to here it looks like I will hopefully not have any issues. Haven't pulled either of the Jeeps yet but I pulled my 5th wheel and it got better mileage than my Dodge and is a smooth ride. Again, thanks for the advice, keep the thread going. Great topic

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
