    I agree. We needed to replace a worn out 1998 GMC 1500. We looked at 2003-2005 Chevy/GMC 1500's that were in the $15-19K range. We bought a brand new 2008 Chevy 1500 with auto, V8, extended cab, 4WD for $21.5k at 0% financing. The dealers have lots of inventory they NEED to move.

    How the hell did you lose your truck, I know you like to party a lot. But seriously, I can understand when people lose there keys, a phone number or there wallet, But how do you lose a whole truck..[​IMG]
