Does anyone know of any known and/or hidden rebates or incentives for the 2004 GMC or Chevrolet Pick Up Trucks. Interested in the 1500 extended series.

Also, do you recommend 4 wheel drive if you are just towing and not plowing. I would go with the Z71 package if you guys recommend it.

I tow an 18ft Landscape Trailer with a 48" Exmark and a 54" Kubota.

Please share all you know. Thanks guys!

A couple weeks ago I bought a 04 GMC Z71. The rebate was 3500 and there was 1500 additional if you finance thru GMAC for a total of 5000. This may have changed by now. I know they have been advertising a 72 hour sale where you can get 0% interest. They have not been keeping the website updated on current offers so you may want to check with your dealer. if you go to chevrolet.com or gmc.com you can look at the current offers page.

We don't have much snow around here so I don't plow but the Z71 will tow much better suspension wise than a 2wd.

I agree on going with 4x4, its always helpful. never know if you'll put a dump insert in the truck and then when you go to dump you may need the 4x4 to get out, makes a better suspension also.

Why a 1/2 ton truck for an 18 ft trailer?

To me, that is 3/4-ton or 1-ton hauling.

1) You don't have enough spring.
2) You don't have adequate brakes.
3) Your gearing is probably too high.

Bottom line: You are putting excess wear and tear on your truck.

Sure, you can get by, but if you are buying new why not skip the Z71 stuff and get a work truck spec 2500 HD duramax?
