I just replaced my dash, it can be tough to find a clean one nowadays. Also, remove the steering column as much as possible, possibly the wheel too. It will help lots if you can have someone help you, it's a big cumbersome sonofabitch.I’ve got a 98 with the 6.5 in it. It just keeps going. Some a hole stole the radio out of it a few years back cracking the dash in the process. 5 years later I now need to replace the whole dash. . It does not get driven much but can’t bring myself to get rid of it.
Definitely true. But when you think that just a few short years ago trucks all had 490-520lbft of tq, they all towed great. Maybe not the same as a hot 24valve, but I’ve seen many stock 7.3PSD 250s towing well beyond their legal limit.250hp in a 6.5 will usually result in 500lbft, which is what my last suburban had. It towed ok, and was fun to drive, but a juiced Cummins it was not.
