Make damn sure it has a "clean" title! I went threw that nightmare one time. NO fun indeed! Good luck. I love all my GM buggies.

Price seems high... but Indiana is a different part of the world
02's around here are in the $9K range...
even less with higher mileage
Carfax it....if it was ever a lease or coporate vehicle..STAY AWAY

Allie I'm general manager of a GM and Dodge dealership and that is to high of a price on that truck. Wished I could get that for em. Anytime you buy run a car fax on it. One thing I have no problem with is if a customer wants to talk to the prevouis owner and it's ok with them we let them talk. I want my customers to be happy and feel good about the vechile they buy from our dealership. Check us out @ www.pksmithmotors.com

I have more information on it. The truck was owned by a 70 something year old man. He traded it in for a Lincoln Navigator. All the service records, oil changes, etc. were performed on schedule by this dealership. Les's brother saw the records and the man never skipped a beat on getting it taken care of. Aside from a few rock dings which is to be expected the truck is clean. I drove it home and will be going out again shortly in it. It rides really, really good....very smooth with no strange noises, shudders, or anything. Les's brother drove it up into Michigan twice over the weekend and said it rides better than either of his two Chevy's that are newer but have thousands more miles. He averages over 100,000 easily a year in his because of work. Les is waiting for the sales guy to call him back. This is the guy his brother has dealt with through 3 trucks, his wife's car, and his step-daughter's car so maybe that will help with getting the price down a good bit!

As for the price, in Indiana, that's a decent price for this truck. Cars or trucks in this area don't come cheap and usually by the time they're 6 yrs old, they have 100-150,000 miles on them. I had sticker shock when I moved here from southeast Georgia.

When they get back Wednesday, I'll have Les do the figure 8 at his brother's house. I don't want to chance hitting their septic tank since I'm not exactly sure where it is and there's no room at my house unless I attempt to drive through ice and around trees. lol

Hmm, have to see if we can find a mechanic to check the other things mentioned.
Have les take it to a empty area of a parkin lot & doo the the fig 8's. I like do em under full throttle with the owner aboard too

Les's brother's 4wd went out on his '07 so they gave him this one as a loaner while it's in the shop. They're driving it up to Allegan today and when they come home on Wednesday, Les is bringing it home so I can take it out for a bit and see what I think.

Here's what it has:
long bed
rhino liner
am/fm cd
step bumper (the chrome kind)
towing package
Z71 system
alloy wheels
cruise, tilt wheel, power windows, doors
Allie I'm sorry I missed the 14000.00 part. That price is in line. Sorry about my other post.

That's ok. We offered 12,500 and he said he "thinks" he can get it done. I've been running insurance quotes and stuff hammering out the numbers for our budget. This will be the first time we've ever had car payments so insurance is also going to cost more than the liability on our paid for with cash cars. We're so cautious before doing anything and it took us a long, long time to get to this point. lol

I didn't know his brother took it out over the weekend and really gave it a workout and went through everything. I think we'll do ok buying this.

I never owned a chevy till my 07 Silverado. Absolutely the nicest wheels I've owned since a Riviera. Bought it for the towing specs and was blown away by the comfort, computer controlled stuff and pleasure to drive.
