    Hey guys, I recently came across a 2004 Chevy 3500 crew cab 4x4. It has the durmax diesel engine and highest trim level possible that u could get in a truck. The inside is in really good shape. It has 83,000 miles on it and the dealer wants 24,400 for it. What do you'll think of it? I am really tempted to buy it, but the high mileage and possiblity of something going wrong with the truck is making me hesitant.

    Thats a lot of mileage on that truck so soon. Whats it KBB for? SRW or Dually?
    LB7 or LLY? Ask the dealer for a service printout to see whats been done to it.

    The truck is a dually and has the LLY. When I test drove it, it did great and had no problem getting up and going. Inside of the truck u could just barely hear the engine.

    24k miles since 2004 is not that bad. It could have been purchased almost three years ago. I would go for it if it checks out.

    It's 83K miles. 24K is the price!
