Perfect...about $14000. Take off any needed items from there. I assume it was an auto trans.

I paid 18500 for mine about 2 months ago. It had 73000 miles with everything that you are looking at. I hate the gas mileage but love the truck.

Think about it.... Say you pay 18k for for this truck.... you could buy a BRAND new 2500HD work truck (instead of LS) 4x4 with a PLOW for around $25000 with tax and plates. Atleast thats what I did. I sold my 01 for 16k and got a brand new truck and plow for under 10k more.

IMO if your going to spend that much, you mine as well spend the extra 10k extra and get a new one with a warranty. But thats just my oppinion.

Still looking at this truck and a few more. I think i will wait for a while longer and see how the mowing season goes before I buy a truck. If an awsome deal on one comes by then I might jump on it but its not going to happen on a dealer lot.

You should really look into buying a new "work truck" package. Some of the deals on ebay are insane. Where else can you buy a 2008 for 25k. Here's a link to an ebay auction. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/08-Chevy-2500HD-4x4-Reg-Cab-8-ft-box-SNOW-PLOW-prep-pkg_W0QQitemZ300184607529QQihZ020QQcategoryZ90969QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem Your talking 0 miles, 0 problems, full warrenty, Brand new. What more can you ask for? If i needed a work truck, i would jump on that deal in a minute. They list it for 25,870 but i'm sure you can get them down to 24k. Maybe it's just who you ask, but for a few grand more, i would go with the new and not have to worry about any headache's

stear clear of dealers. They are there to make money unlike the adverage private seller. Personally I would stay away from the gas motors. I just sold my 2006 2500hd with the 6.0L motor and the best mileage i got was 12.5 and it tended to average in the 11mpg range. this is unloaded. Hooked to a 14ft landscape trailer or larger it would only get around 9.5mpg.

I now drive a one ton dually with the duramax motor and get 14-16mpg unloaded and 12-14mpg loaded. Granted the motor has not really had a chance to break in, after around 25K or more miles i expect the mileage to go up one or two mpg in all categories.

I know most guys will say that they can not afford a diesel, but if you do the math on the gas you will be spending for the poor mileage, you will find that you are paying for the diesel and don't know it. when i was in the heat of the season and driveing my 6.0L, i was running a gas bill of around $800/mth. and that is with my company being part time and not doing as much driving as most would be driving accounts full time.

other than the mileage, the chevy is a great truck and does anything you will need it to with in reason.

I also own a duramax and a 5.7L chevy. Honestly i would rather use the 5.7 over the diesel for strict lawn maintenance. It costs me 115.00 to fill up the diesel and i get about 12mpg (city) with an enclosed 6x12 with all the stuff inside. I know it's a new truck, and mileage will get better (i get 20 highway empty 16 loaded). The silverado costs me about 90 to fill up and get 10mpg loaded (city). For the extra 1mpg its really not worth paying an extra 8k for the diesel plus paying $3.35 for diesel as regular is 2.79 especially if you're doing city driving. But, if you use the truck for work/pleasure and drive alot then diesel is the way to go, Hands down.
