    I have 3.42 gears, granted mine is a bit older, and they suck ass for towing. That was before I went to a bigger tire, making them even worse. Unless you like driving around in 2nd gear all the time - including some hills out on highway/freeway - I'd go min 3.73's.

    The 6 speed tranny really helps out in the newer GMs. I have the 3.42 in my Avy and it tows just fine. As with anything, you will always want more power.

    I know the 3.42 is the way to go, since it's the highest they put in it.

    Take at least $8K off of sticker, but you should be able to get up to $10K off.

    I'm hoping for $10k most dealers are stuck at $7-$8k. Found one with $10k off per add but dealer baited and switched. If you know of a dealer giving $10k let me know.

    Now back to the oil change cost why with no change for the past 5 years in engine do they require a different brand of oil?

    There have been some changes in oil to a different viscocity in order to reduce friction/drag and make the engine more effecient. Mostly in an effort to increase fuel economy in the overall scheme.

    1gal of Rotella T6 at Walmart 21 bucks.
    I buy 4 gallons, and filter is 18 bucks. So technically its 102. LOL But every 4th oil change its 80 bucks.
