These duramax's are hard to come by, and around here they seem to be on the higher side for price. My mechanics really like the duramax engines, before I buy any truck I will be having them go through the whole truck and make sure it is in good shape. The last duramax I found near me was an '02 chevy ext. cab, 4x4, several cosmetic issues, service engine light on, and tranny leak, 220k....It was going for $9500 at the dealer. I do have a guy looking at some of the online auctions for me. He finds me about one or two trucks each week. Usually they are from georgia, so they have a cleaner underbody than trucks from up here have.
