About as direct as it gets. I appreciate that. Finding a great deal on a diesel in this area isn't easy. They are in high demand. Pre-emissions are even higher. I am not sure I will end up with this one or not. ball is in the dealers court. Has to be a number I want or I keep looking.

Bought my 2004 Silverado used with 65000 kms (41000 miles ) and have pulled a CC 34 ft for the past 9 years, no major issues.
As of today, I have 284638 kms ( 177,500 miles ) on it and again, no major issues.
I have replaced the front brakes twice, rears once and had to replace the wiring harness to the injectors ( 750.00 ) due to rubbing on parts of the engine. Replaced one inner lower ball joint. Thats it. Changed tranny fluid and filters 4 times. Excellent vehicle and still pulling the same 5th wheel to and from Texas for the past 7 years as full timers.

I picked my 05 up in 2008 with 87k on it from a dealership i worked at. It needed some body work, but i picked it up for $14.5k then. It had about $6k of body damage (estimated cost at the shop. ) that i fixed for about $1,400.....so i came out great!.
....but in all reality i usually do good with all my vehicles since im in the business and find a lot of good deals on vehicles needing work.

Just looked on cl in my area (central OK)
- all 2007 classics with lbz, 2500hd and all crew cab

-2wd w/ 61 k----$27,000
-4wd w/320k----$18,000
-4wd w/158k----$30,000 (has some extras)
-4wd w/140k----$23,999 (it was listed local, but i think its out of texas)
I think the one your looking at is definitely in the ball park.

A lot of the "red neck" kids are really liking diesels around here, so i think that helps with the prices.
I like diesels cause i tow a bunch!

Checkout out prices on new a duramax. I paid $43k for my 14 GMC Duramax 4X4 CC two years ago at the end of the season pricing. Deals can be found.

Bought mine in Aug 07/new.. (Classic-LBZ).. but it's had a few issues. Turbo vane sensor & solenoid under warranty, transmission line leak, then entire turbo all under warranty. Had turbo re-done on my dime last summer and it FINALLY is getting more reasonable MPG and more fun to drive!! Had to re-do lines and put some on from Red's Auto Rehab. no further issues. More than enough for the trailer in the sig..
As above, wish it had a bit bigger tank on it.. Hadley's are handy on occasion!!
Even with the problems, very happy with the truck and feel it's well suited to my tasks.

I think the OP should jump on it...but then I might be a little biased!!

I've had this '04 since '07. Just over 100k now. It's awesome that it's still worth nearly as much as I paid for it 9 years ago.

While I am jealous of those new quiet diesels, I have NO desire to replace it...especially for half the cost of a small house.

I own a 04 LLY Duramax & I've got 175,000 on it and it's been a great truck no complaints. The LBZ is the most popular Duramax out there you better go buy it before it's gone.

There is no down side to that truck. Just traded one like it only because we needed a bigger truck (dully) to tow our 40ft 5th wheel loaded for full time living. Ours had 93k miles and I considered it just broken in. Only problem ever was faulty glow plugs that caused the check engine light to come on.
