    id just buy a new one if thats what theyre going for used.

    i have a 2005 gmc 2500hd 6.0L gas that i paid $27,000 brand new with a fisher plow. so 24,300 without the plow. i think its about 7 grand more for the duramax and allison transmission. so you would figure around $32,000 brand new (duramax/allison, reg cab, long bed, 4x4). check out www.gmc.com and build your own truck. that will give you a ballpark idea of what a new one costs.

    does it have the allison transmission?
    lot of miles on that truck already for the price.

    that will give you MSRP.....not what they are actually going for.....I recently priced out a new Dodge, Cummins, 2500 extra cab and it was $39,400 out the door.....I didn't buy it.....

    Build your truck you want on GM.com and then subtract like 10grand and thats what it'll be for sale at, at the dealership

    Configured how you said. Blue Book price on that truck is $21,285 for good condition. I took a guess on the other options, but I figured you were buying it as a work truck so I figured pretty basic options.

    Those miles must be all highway miles, that would be a plus, but $21 k for a truck with almost 100,000 miles? Or worse yet, what he wants and $25 k for almost 100,000 miles?

    Just for reference, I bought a truck that has the same options as that one but 4X4 and it is the 6.0L. It had 15,000 miles and I bought it for $22,900. I would skip that one.

    cool, is this true all over? i went for a ride in an 06 with 2k on it with 6sp allison/duramax this weekend, and i liked it, ive always wanted a 05+ f350 but im starting to lean torwards the 06 silverado or sierra... i priced out one on their site

    all tow/plow options
    long bed/extended cab
    duramax lbz/6sp allison trans
    no sunroof but about every other option, would like cloth if i can help it
    came to like 44k.. so for 34k you can get a truck like that? only thing is, i HATE their wheel combos. ford an dodge offer like 17s/18s/20s! i love the 20s 5 spoke wheel combo in the ford superduty.

    i would HAVE to get some sort of 17" wheels for it and larger tires like 33s i think is the larger size i like. The truck stock looks like a big truck on donuts. lol

    Diesel engines have soi much life in them that 88k miles isn't that big of a deal. Is the truck all stock or does he have any modifications on it?
