    edmunds says a loaded (heated leather interior, bose, plow and tow packages, fog lights auto and turbodeisel) iw worth about $13k if you were to buy it from a suer car dealer, 11k private sale. So depending on wether or not the non-factory stuff (plow, strobes, backrack, etc) are worth between 4 and 6 grand to you this could be an ok deal.

    Personally I don't think its a particularly good price, but at $15k I'd be talking deal.

    Check for rust at the rear corners of the cab...I've seen alot of 99-03 GMC/Chevy X-cabs (mine included) that rust through from the inside on the bottom rear edges of the rocker panels...more or less a straight line down from the rear of the back side windows. Pusha nd poke it wiht your fingers and if the area is soft the damage has begun and its just not visible yet.
