    I just got back from buying a 1999 GMC sierra 1500. The truck is amazing, i had my mechanic take it for a test drive, and inspect the whole thing, and he gave it a clean bill of heatlth, as did Carfax. due to snow that is supposed to be comming, it will take a few days to prep the truck for me, as it needs two small items. 1. the drivers side mirror has a crack in it, so they're replacing the entire mirror assembly, and 2. the latch on the sliding rear window is damaged, so they're gonna replace that as well. other than that it is absolutely beatutiful condition. The dealer was really nice, and was very quick to jot down some notes on what i needed to have done to the truck.

    I can't wait to pick it up!!!
