how the he'll do I take my truck out of overdrive. On my 02 silverado I had before it had 1, 2, 3, OD so in thecity I would always drive in 3rd. My new 05 diesel truck has only1, 2 then drive... W/a tow/haul button, which I'm assuming works like my chevy used to raising the rpm before shifting and using the torque converter as a little engine brake.
I have only had my new truck 4 days
The 05's are kinda the step child of the TH function. You have no OD lockout at all. The TH feature is a more aggressive lockup and shifting program but it will still go into OD.
Depending on what you need, there are ways to get the functionality.
Cycling the TH button will drop it into drive and lock the TC. It will stay there until your acceleration has dropped off the upshift.
If you can keep your speed at or above 55 mph shifting to manual 2nd will drop it into drive and keep it there until speed drops under 50 mph.
BD Power also makes an OD lockout kit the allows you to control OD like the older trucks and not loose the aggressive shifting and lockup program.
There is a flash for the ECU theat will make the TH button just an OD lockout but you loose the aggressive lockup and shifting.
Since you just got the truck drive it for a bit and play with the TH features and see if they work like you want. :thumbsup
