What do you guys think? 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Regular Cab, Long Box, 10,200 miles 4 x 4, flawless, $15,000

I am 99% positive this will be my third team's truck, seems awesome. We have a 2003 Silverado 2500HD extended cab with 45k and 2006 3500 Dump with 15k. This new one would have a Truckcraft Dump Insert placed in it for next year as well. Any words of advice? thanks!

It sounds like a great deal to me. A new truck like that with a 6 liter will cost I think about $25,000.

Sounds awesome! Will it be used for a maintenance crew or just general landscaping?

Sounds like a good deal.

P.S. Wrong area this should be in trucks not mowing.

I don't know that I would ever buy a regular cab again. Nowhere to put anything, especially if you ever have to put 3 guys in it.

Good price and all, but like I said, regular cab would be deal breaker for me.

this truck will be used to tow a 7.5 x 16 ft trailer with with zero, one or two walk behinds, have an insert in it for mulch, clippings, etc. The regular cab is one drawback, but I don't plan on this truck having more than 2 people in it because it will be for 2 guys doing about 75-80 lawns a week. I have the extended cab version, and the fact I would lose 2 ft of bed space is what I'm focusing on. Everything for the mowers goes on the trailer, including the gas cans and tool boxes, trimmers etc.

I would check this truck over REAL good. It sounds like too good of a deal to me. Only 3 years old and 10,500 miles, 4x4, even with a regular cab its worth alot more. This truck was probably over $30,000 new. I got an 05 1500 4x4, extended cab, with 20,000 miles this spring and i paid $20,000.
