    I,m looking at an 0-2 2500 HD D/Max 41,000 miles Crew Cab LS short box. $25,000
    Does anyone know the codes for Plow Prep and the gear ratio.
    I will be pulling a 8500 lb Camper and would also like to hang a plow on it
    Thanks Gary

    Crew cab and Dmax = no VYU (Snowplow prep)

    Gear ratio will only be 3.73:1 There were no choices.

    Check it out on KBB and see what it's worth with all of its options.

    See if you can get a dealer to run the VIN and see whats been done to it.

    NONE of CC DMax trucks are available with the VYU snow plow prep. Very :realmad: frustrating. Maybe one day Chevy will give us what we ask for...

    Price sounds a bit high to me. Probably worth $20-22K. Depends on the demand in your area though.

    One major factor you didn't tell us is the condition? Does it look scratched up, dented and worked or is a cream puff? Perfect paint and interior? No accident records, and all the maintenance done with receipts? That goes a long way with most of us. I'll pay a lot more, as a mater of fact that's all I would ever buy used.

    I have the basically the same truck with an 8.2 Boss V and I pull an 8500 lbs fifth wheel. Handles them both like a dream. Tell the dealer to put some different wheels and tires on it.

    My dad has an 02 D-max crew. He pulls a 11k fifth wheel and has a Fisher 8'6" V on it(not at the same time:)). He couldn't be happier.
