    For that price and mileage, your better off buying new. If you buy before the 28th you can save with GM's rebate. Just to give you an idea i paid $30,855 for mine in May

    I am looking at a 2002 chevy 2500HD ext.cab with the Duramax diesel,auto,4x4,loaded with leather,22k miles just off lease,truck is mint for $29,995.I think thats a pretty good price but still a close call versus new.

    david,get the service history on that truck.A lot of 6.0 owners cant stand the oil consumption and/or piston knocks they haver,and get rid if them.A have few friends that have traded in their 6.0 trucks to get the same exact truck,but with a Duramax.Just be prepared for the usual 6.0 issues,and you should be fine.I agree you may be better off with a new one,besides the 8 ft fisher while a good plow wouldnt be my choice on a new truck.Get what you want,its your $$.

    I gotta agree with Earthscapes, for that kind of money your not far from the new ones. They have a ton of rebates and incentives going making them very attractive.

    The lower interest rates on a new vehicle would also be a big factor. Interest rates on used vehicles are up there.

    I think a new truck with no history would be a better deal. I agree with everyone
