    I'm sorry to be so long in replying but I have just found this message. I love it so far. I had a '07 2500 diesel and it was a great truck. It was a LTZ with everything on it. It just rode too rough for everyday driving and I could see it could get a little expensive with routine fuel filter replacements and 10 qt. oil changes. I replaced it with a '09 LTZ in a special edition called White Diamond. Not bright white but an off white. It has the 5.3 engine with the active fuel management. I don't know if you've heard of it but it cuts back to four cylinders when the load is light. I get a little over 15 mpg around town but no highway trips yet. It rides so much better than the diesel. It has 20' wheels with Goodyear Eagle tires. Really meant for cruising rather than hauling. I don't know anything about the '08 but there's hardly any difference from my '07. This may be more than you wanted to know but let me know if I can give you anymore information.

    So far, how do you like your 2009 Silverado? I'm curious to know what has been changed from the 2008 models.
