Anyone in here own a Yak
 
Looks like I might be buying a 2007 Kodiak :chevy:

Never owned one, much less any kind of Diesel,
any advice other than throwing lots of $ at her?

Likes, dislikes, would you own again, or no way?

*Mods please move if this isn't the right group.

What type of Diesel Engine does it have?

Re: Anyone in here own a Yak
 
It has the Duramax Diesel engine, in another thread he mentioned it was a c4500. 8.1 gas and 6.6 diesel were the only 2 engine options in 4500/5500 01-10.

You looking for any specific info? Shouldn't need to throw lots of money at it unless it needs work. But just like any modern diesel, everything is more expensive than its comparable gas twin.

The engine will be the same as a 2500hd/3500 (LBZ) but detuned for less power. 2007 should have the full 6 speed transmission. 06+ have a 6 speed transmission but the 6th gear is locked out from the factory until 2007 or 2008 models. It can be enabled with a computer reflash from the dealer.

Change the oil every 5000 miles and fuel filter every 10,000. Add a lift pump to help out the injection pump and get extra filtration.

Go to dieselplace.com and search their heavy haulers section. There was alot of good info back in the day. Its slowed down alot now though.

So what do you plan to do with it?

I was thinking that a 12' cabover camper on a flatbed C4500 would be nice stable rig.

Well, congratulations for wanting to get a Real Truck to pull a heavy trailer :)

A couple years ago I was sorta drooling over the fiber optic construction outfit's C4500 flatbed. I think they said it had a 6.0 gas in it (same as I now have in my K2500HD WT). Of course I was also drooling over their JD-650 dozer. I really wanted to borrow it over the weekend while it was sitting at the end of my driveway :lol:

I saw where you had a haul. How do you like it at work?

That is a beautiful truck, a local guy had one just like it in white for a long time, he hotshotted campers and loved it, swore he'd never have a regular pickup again.

Actually that was my buddies Ram that made the trip
with me. He pulled my trailer empty to NY (Avg. 11.8)
& I pulled back my trailer with his on it. (Avg. 13.1) :lol:
