New to me '04.5 Silverado diesel.
Price of fuel today.
Took advantage of the cold day to look for ∆t's around the house before spring...
nice cat-eye! I really like the look and size of that truck.
Got one of the last of those (an '07 Classic) in November of '06, just before diesel fuel skyrocketed in price. Closing in on 200,000 miles and hoping it lasts longer than I can still drive. While there are many nice features in the 'new' trucks they have gotten so tall that I'd need a crane to get in, besides, I love this truck! Hope that yours works out as well.
Truck has been sitting lonely during the quarantine.
Finally got a decent washing this week.
There isn't anything wrong with my truck but I'm thinking about trading it in on a new 2019 Chevy 2500 4x4 WT gasser like this one.
Looks like there are several around and they're all around $34k. How far down could I potentially talk them down? It's the old body style, end of the month during a freaking pandemic.
Might as well toss a pic of mine also.
Pretty much all the automakers are offering 0% for 84 months with some sort of deferred payments. They NEED to move cars and need your business. They'll be willing to negotiate. However, don't expect much value on your trade.
I like my truck. Its a "bew body style" 99 GMC2500. The three door extended cab, long bed. A long bed is the 8 ft bed for those who don't seem to know that fact. It has about 85K on the clock. Drives great, runs great has the 6 ltr in it. All good. But I have also thought about it being a good time to get a good deal on a new. I probably won't, but sure tempting. It would probably be the last car purchase of my life. And only the third new car purchase of my life. A couple months from now they will be paying you to take one off their hands.
Hate to say it but probably better luck with your 99 being last truck, I don't have much faith in these newer trucks.
Sounds like you are having a good experience with your '99 @oldmanb777 than I did with my '03 2500HD. At three years and 45k miles, I really wanted to get something else.
Yes its a great truck. I bought it from a friend of mine, who bought it new. It was his camping,hunting, fishing rig and a extra car. So he didn't put many miles on it. That's why the low mileage. I think I could easily drive it for the rest of my driving years. So ne real reason to buy a new one. It's only 20 yrs old at the moment.
I think them dropping it to $30k isn't unreasonable at all, it's not a very sought after truck being a base model so that should work in your favor. Now trading your truck in prepare to get screwed over as I don't think they are wanting to add anymore vehicles at this point.
I have a 2017 F150 with the STX trim package. Mine has the 3.55 gear ration with on demand 4WD, electronic locking rear diff. HD supension, tow package, super cab, 6.5 foot bed, 36 gallon fuel tank, the 2.7 liter Eco-Boost, side steps, Max tow cap is 7200. We pull a 23 foot Keystone Crossfire Bullet with it. Trailer weights ~3200. The STX package is quite nice over the base F150. One thing I like is the lack of chrome trim. Never a fan of chrome. Bought through Costco and with the CC discount and incentives it was 34K out the door. We have 10% tax and the tabs were $520. If you did not have to pay that extra its a very good price for the STX. Its 3 years old and now has 5883 miles on it. On its 3rd oil change too.
My 1991 s10 with a 4.3v6, built 700r4, mandrel stainless side exhaust etc
Hey, don't be silly, keep this truck until it gives you reason not to trust it. Complexity isn't always better,
I can't even get them to return a phone call or email. They're only doing phone and internet sales at the moment. They have 5 of those trucks and I guess they'll keep them.
I'd prefer a long bed anyways.
March 2nd, I finally found the truck with all the options that were important to me... and a dealer that wanted to sell it.
2020 Ram 1500 4wd.
And then yesterday, my in-laws had us to bring this home.
'88 Ford Ranger 2.3/5spd. Just the way a little compact truck should come.
Belonged to my wife's reclusive uncle. 65700 miles on the odometer.... but I'm certain that if it had one, there would be a 1 in front of that. Maybe a 2. Drove home like a champ. I just need to sort out a few things on it. I've never been a huge Ford fan, but to me, Ford has always put their best money into the trucks and the Mustangs. I've always had a preference for the early Rangers and the fox body Mustang.... and it just so happens that this one finds it's way to us.
The one thing I can't see to find for it is replacement molded seat foam for the 60/40 seat. Guessing I'll just have to order a few blocks of it and carve it up myself. The upholstery is pretty decent. I think the seat covers were replaced on it once... because the carpet is trash and the door panels are in horrible shape. Ssssooo....... It could nickle and dime me to death. But I guess that's fine for now. :)
New truck today. Purchased it in Idaho and it was just delivered today to California. Awesome truck. Very very happy with it. The interior is as nice as my brother-in-law‘s couple year old Lexus. 2020 ram rebel. Pretty much fully option down with the exception of air ride, ram boxes and the split tailgate.
Congrats on the new ride. It's amazing at how fancy trucks have become.
