    The interior is blue, the older chevy and gmcs had tan,red,blue, and I think a gray interior options.

    I would say its worth it, especially with only 55k on it. Other than the doors starting to rust it looks solid. If you dont jump on it I will!

    I think it would make you a nice plow truck mackman. I love our two gm plow trucks but thats all I have plowed with. This one is a lot like our 2000 and we have never had a problem with ours. Very reliable. We have changed all the fluids shocks brakes and an intake gasket is all. Intake gaskets are kinda common on the Vortecs. Where I work we have 2 97 vortecs that have 230,000 on them and still kicking. Just have done little things a long the way. These trucks kinda have an issue with fuel pumps too. They will start making lots of noise when they start to go out so you might want to make sure its not making noise. I was looking at this truck myself but its not blue and I really dont need another truck to find a parking spot for haha

    Maybe this will open your eyes to what GM has to offer and you can trade that powerstroke for a real diesel:drinkup:

    Yea I was just kidding....the red and the blue just look absolutely hideous to me! lol

    yea, until you get this, love it, then trade your pickup for a classic or NBS CCSB 2500HD/3500SRW with the Dmax rockin' under the hood......You just wait and see!

    if your looking for a truck of that year and body i would suggest a 6.5l diesel and they are going for about that price range.... that truck should be around 3500 maybe even 4000 but... like you said it has all the plow mounts on it already so what does that mean.... 55k of plowing only? and if that is truly the original miles those odometer were the old style easy to roll back idk but i would assume that

    I'm curious, why would you suggest the 6.5 over the 5.7 and 7.4 gas options?

    Keep in mind that is a relay system for the plow, so you'll have to account for that or convert your next plow. The tires are shot...Brake lines and rockers are the first thing to go on that truck...I'd be willing to bet those brake lines are shot if they haven't yet replaced them. I think $5500 is a little steep myself. I've seen alot more truck for alot less money with the plow. If it were a diesel, I probably wouldn't hesitate.

    Good luck.
