    That sounds like a good deal, depending on the condition. Does it have the work truck package? Please keep us updated on how it works out.

    Bought it on Monday. Does not have work truck package. Has trailer package with 8.1 Vortex V8 only 26,000 miles. Has everything. Much more than I was wanting as far as extras but just could not pass up the deal.

    The 1996 Z71 I bought new just turned 226,000 miles on Monday. So I will keep using it and use new one for estimates and fill in times. One thing I laughed at on the new truck was the temp. guage in the rear view mirror. Last thing I want to know down hear is how hot it is in the middle of the day. LOL.

    Funny thing is I don't worry about mileage. It is suppose to get 13 city and 18 hwy. According to government stats. So what ever I get I get. But one thing for sure it has got some stuff. Even has a trans. temp. guage. Honestly I wanted rubber floors, long bed, and AC but used ones here are either beat to pieces or over 20K so just decide to get this and am happy so far. May tak some pics this weekend and post.
