    I looked at a 2001 Chevy HD EXT CAB long bed it has 245,000 miles on it.It has an Allison transmission never plowed before.He bought it in 2006 used it to pull race cars.He has been meticulous with service.He wants $8990 for it this seems high all around milege,price.Any thoughts about this.Negiotate price,forget it.I believe the truck has a big block gas(not diesel) motor.I want to mount a v plow on this with salter.Dave

    He is high! I would keep looking for one with lower miles...around here you can pick up trucks like that with around 100 k for $10,000 or so

    Very true its like that here in chanhassen as well The local dealer had a 1998 K1500 in decent shape with 100K miles they wanted $13,000:eek:. I had to drive over an hour to find a decent price on a pickup.

    9 grand isn't out of line for that truck if it's in good condition. The 8.1 trucks hold very good resale value....regardless of fuel prices.

    Like I've said in past posts, market prices can vary greatly by location, but around here that could be an $11-$12,000 truck.

    Now if it was a 6.0 truck then yes, I'd say it's slightly overpriced since they're much more common place.

    But either way the mileage wouldn't stop me from buying it. They'll run a long time IF properly maintained.
