    Found a deal I couldn't refuse.

    2006 GMC Sierra 2500HD Ext Cab 4x4 6.0L (gas) 29,000 miles

    $18.000 ....

    Had to trade in the old truck. Cost an extra $40/month, lost 2 years and 80k miles. Gained a beast ...


    Here are the dealer photos.. I'll have to get some myself later.

    Congrats on the new ride!
    I feel like trucks like this are perfect for a professional person. They look very nice and presentable without being "over the top" and making the customer (or the potential customer) wonder how much extra they're paying for you to drive it.

    We have the same truck but in Chevy trim and long bed. It eats the fuel, we get about 7mpg pulling a goose neck triple axel dump trailer with a mini excavator or a skid loader in it. Don't know what the truck alone gets for mileage because it always has the trailer hooked to it.
    Sounds like you got a good deal and low miles.
