    I have had great luck with my 2002 Chevy 1500 4.8L 4x4 reg. cab long box. It was a one owner trade in and it had never had a plow on it.I bought it with 69,000 miles in May 2011 and I now have about 80,000 miles on it. They only thing I had to fix on it is, a wheel bearing, rear cross member (the one above the spare tire), and the blower fan resister. How much is he asking for the one you are looking at?

    That sounds like a good price to me.

    I'd have my mechanic look long and hard at that transfer case.

    Good luck on the new truck! If all of the issues are squared away, $7500 seems to be a fair asking price!!

    The old epoxy over the pump rub issue? Listen to basher you could be sorry. Maybe was just the output seal but I would have some look at the t case to be sure, Like previously stated.
