You can also find gassers with half your millage for just a tad more then you paid. From a private seller you can usually get a much better deal. It's all a learning experience.

Also, can we put the phrase "sick truck" out to pasture please Lawnsite moderator. I think that's one semi oxymoron adjective we can do without. It's been used to death and well, well beyond.
You are kind of a butt plug aren't you?

Hopefully the truck works out well for you....

Everyone else will say they get a better deal on anything after you buy something.... Maybe so maybe not and either way it's your money not mine or anyone elses. Good luck with it and hopefully it serves you well without too many complications.

I have a phrase for. How about a$$hole. Nice truck man. I have GMC 3500 with the 8.1. They do drink gas but have a ton of power and are a lot cheaper than the Duramax.

This truck has been doing great for us, having the gas motor is not really bothering me like i thought it would. Plenty of power and cheaper at the pump to!

I definitely would never use the word "guarentee" when it comes to a 6.0 Powerjoke. Busting your chops guy!
