    Hey guys, I am thinking about getting rid of my daily driver car and getting a truck . My car gets the same mpg as this truck and I cant stand driving a car anymore So take a look at it and tell me what you think about it.

    Looks like a nice clean truck! You can't beat the 5.7L V8 also. Ha I might go take a look at it...lol

    I would love to find a truck like that around here. I have looked at about 20 and they were all used up piles of crap.

    AMEN! i ended up buying a 98 halfton ext.cab cause i could not find a single nice truck like that. all 3/4 tons around here were either rusty with high miles, or way overpriced!

    Nice truck. Doesn't say what engine it has. You will be doing well to get 14 MPG with a 350 assuming it has 4.10 gears. A 454 will be worse. It's a short bed, and those are not alloy wheels.

    That looks like a Maine inspection sticker, May. Just make sure the underside looks as good as the outside. Double check the inner rockers.

    I like it. I wish I could have found an extended cab instead of the reg. cab when I bought mine. I did find a 98 K2500 ext-cab with the 454 after I bought mine. It had 83,000 miles on it and was immaculate. They wanted about $12,000 for it which was too much. It sat there for a long time before it dissapeared.

    The truck you are looking at probably has the 5.7L in it because I don't see the auxillary fan behind the grill that the 454 trucks have.

    what kind of car do you drive that gets such poor gas mileage that you think a 350 powered truck is going to match it ?

    I second the suggestion to crawl underneath and triple check its as clean as it looks, Getting to the car wash is a real challenge for many people ( including my wife) here in new england

    wow, that is gorgeous! If that's all original it's worth every penny, and if it was all done over it's worth every penny. buy it because it wont be around long
