[QUOTE=Mowingman;3396266]Very nice truck, but the price is pretty high compared to what we pay down here. I do not know how the market is up your way.
Right now, I can buy a leftover 09, just like that one, but with just the "work truck" trim level, for about $2000.00 more you paid. The "WT" package just has a bare bones interior though.
I saw a truck just like yours in the used car lot of our Chevy dealer with a sticker of $24,500.

Your probably right, the diesel option with 4x4 is pretty expensive up here due to the plowing and power capabilities. I hope to get some years of good use of her to make my money back. This thing is faster than my audi a4 and is a beast!

hey thanks guys! Pulls a trailer without even feeling it behind you. I'm just getting anxious to start doing some work here in the next month or so. making a 550 dollar a month truck payment for a used truck makes me a little nervous. Our revenue justifies a purchase like this but I always get a few butterflys when you spend a chunk of change.

Hopefully I can justify a new truck here in another year. I couldn't even imagine that payment! Should last long after the payments are done! I will hopefully go diesel with a new body style chevy! Good luck with yours!!!

Haha, small world! Yeah I saw that about the light out but it turns out it is only one of the heat adjustment knob lights in the center console that is burnt out. Actually if someone did not tell you about it you would never know. That was the only flaw I could find. Solid truck and ready to go to work for me. You drove all the way from Minnesota? Where in Minnesota? I went to the U my freshman year in college. Lenz trucks has a big selection of heavy duty trucks and they get the financing done for you with no suprises. After reasearching prices throughout the midwest and comparing models etc. I feel that their prices are fair, I will definately go back and the way early season sales are going I may be back in the next few months.
