    I have a 98 that I really like. The 454 seems pointless to me, the 350 has plenty of power---seems the 454 would be too much of a gas hog. I will sell you my 98 for 9k. 350, 2" lift, nice tires, 4 wheel drive, custom rims, sprayed in bedliner, alpine stereo, dark blue, oh and its a 2500. IN excellent condition for a 98 work truck.

    They are correct. That is $2000-$4000 TOO MUCH for that truck. Do a free KBB run on it and see what the used person to person price is

    looks like a god truck to me, just not for 11,000. it is worth the 454 if you ask me. i feel with the plow and ez- dumper 8,500 would be fair.

    Looks to be a really nice truck, but that 454 will be a gas hog. You might think that you'll be able to afford the gas now, but it will wear you down after a while, but that is what a big motor is for. You can never have too much power. Also, keep in mind that this truck is far from you. You might get all the way out there to find out that it isn't as it looks or it is not really what you want. Not saying that it will be, but it could happen.
