    hello, so im always looking for deals on trucks, like ill admit im a craigslist addict...lol....anyway, I came across this. its a 2005 chevy 2500hd reg. cab long bed. 6.0 auto. 92,000 miles. comes with the 8.5 foot blizzard plow and the dump insert. runs good, they have all the maintence records since day one, only downfall is trans is slipping, but they have another rebuilt trans they will give me in the deal. I know the company selling it, ive worked side buy side with the owners son, its a big company around here. I talked to the guy and he said he'd sell it to me for $5,500 cash. what do you guys think? I know its been a work truck all its life, but can I go wrong with the included items?

    Thats a great deal. Thats a $12-13k truck around here and you get it for 5500 with a rebuilt transmission? Thats the deal of a lifetime.

    Buy it and part it out - frame and brakelines should be junk by now if he's wanting to sell cheap. You'll make money on the deal.

    $12-13k? How many do you want? I'll start sending them your way and give you 20% wiggle room to make $ on your end.

    Seems like a good deal, on top of that the those TruckCrafts go for a pretty penny and that one looks pretty decent, good luck, keep us updated!

    Even if you put $3k into truck you still are doing good.
