    Hi guys just wondering what your opionions would be on this truck.
    It is a 98 chevy diesel DRW with a extended cab long box.
    It is a one owner
    56000 miles
    mint condition
    did have a 5th wheel hitch in it at one point.

    How do they stand up I am looking at one right now at a dealer and they want 7500 for it

    Those trucks stand up great. I constantly see them for sale with 200,000+ miles and still running strong. It's a long and wide truck to plow with and maneuver, but get what suits your needs. GM fixed most of the major 6.5L problems by MY1998, but ask and see if the pump mount driver has been replaced. If it hasn't, be prepared for that to go bad - or ask for them to replace it before you buy it because I think there's a TSB on that. $7,500 seems like a fair price, but maybe a little low for the miles. I'd look over it pretty good, but it sounds like a pretty good deal.
