    what year is it?
  3. yeah

    its a 01 or 02 and i DEFINENTALLY think that its worth the asking price (it never hurts to try to get it cheaper though) THose are great trucks. Just make sure that everything seems to be in good physical and mechanical condition and make sure that it doesnt have a salvage title!

    yeah, I'd be real surprised to get it much cheaper than that. Those trucks are still going for mid 20s around here ( I know because I watch them all the time) The gas jobs are down between 15-18 now, but thats the first dweezil Ive seen under 20. I love that body style, hate the color. I'm told the 02 is better than the 01 Dmax.

    I just ran the vin and this truck has had a lot of transmission problems and was bought back by GM and has all 8 injectors replaced. Transmission repairs at 8200,30000, 3 times at 34000,and at 35000. It was bought back by GM at 36500 and injectors at 76000. So I would pass on this one if I were you.

    Nice work! This seemed like such a nice truck, but as you can see, you cannot judge a book by its cover! :nono:

    Actually if you check out www.dieselplace.com they can run vins on GM vehicles and get that type of info.

  12. Also call the dealer

    Also, you can call a dealer. Anytime a GM vehicle goes in for service it is enterd in their computer, so they call run a vin and pull up ALLL that info. A good friend of mine does that for us on all our used cars!

    Actually, the injectors being replaced is a real plus. They are very expensive and they all need it done sooner or later. As for the tranny, sounds like they finally got it right the last time. I wouldn't dismiss it right away. If you pass on it and it's still available shoot me the link.
