    Well, ive been doing some browsing today and found some similar trucks for sale locally. heres what ive come up w/:

    2004 sle 2500 h/d
    4x4, 6.0L-auto, extended cab, shortbox, w/new Fisher Minute Mount plow, intense blue, grey leather, loaded, CD/XM/OnStar, tow pkg, 28kmi, $29500 Oneonta, NY

    2005 SILVERADO 2500 HD LS
    extended cab, 4x4, loaded, trlr & plow pkg, alloys, access, only 8kmi, silver birch, $29350 Norwich, NY (no plow)

    and a few on the autotrader w/in 100miles of me right around the same as these...

    i will ask $29500 for mine but will be quite negotiable at that. I know GM just offered the employee discount thing, but, I figure this truck has to be worth around $25-$26K and the plow, which is like brand new, on the truck has to be worth another $3K. maybe im way off, but, i guess ill see what happens.....

    I think that's an extremely good deal. I've been looking this past week at 2006 2500HD's with the 6 liter, auto, plow prep, tow packag, LT1 and my price with GMS and any rebates would be just over $30k. And you are selling it with the plow right?

    How many miles does it have on it?

    Console or bench seats?

    Did you sell your 1/2 ton yet? If so what did you get for it? I'm trying to unload mine now.

    ebay works. my bro and I drove to PA twice to pick up a dakota the first time, and a tbird the second. Another time we went down to OH to pick up a Camaro. And then someone from ohio bought my old dakota.

    lol, you will sell it in a heartbeat!

    On that Nav do you have the Lux amp as well?

    From my past experience selling it all parted got me the most money in the long run. Finding a truck buyer and someone that wants a plow limits your market. If you do decide to sell it with out the plow, make sure it looks like it never had a plow on it. Change the air dam and fill the holes from the joy stick with little plastic pop in rivets that match. Some people get nervous that it was beet, because of plowing. Actually I as well as most would take a truck that never plowed than one that has, If all things were equal.

    wow. what an old thread.

    no. did not have the lux amp. that only comes factory in H2's and Escalades.
    My buddy put that Nav and Lux amp in his avalanche. he had to hack a bunch of harnesses to make it all work and said he'd never do it again. The bose sounded good enough for me.

    as far as the truck goes, i sold it last Feb for what i was asking. the guy took the plow, nav, and all.
