    I was looking at maybe purchasing a suburban with a 6.2 in it. It has around 100,000 miles on it. How much would be a reasonable price for a bone stock one like this, i dont want to be taken. And also im not that familiar with diesel engines, is there any thing that i should be looking or listening for that would help me to decide to purchase or not purchase it. I know i am being a little vague in my description here, but any comments would greatly be appreciated.
    Thanks

    100,000 miles on the engine itself is really low for that old of a diesel. diesals last for 200,000 to almost 300,000 as it seems.
    has it been serviced regularly and properly? if all is good, then 4k-5k sounds like a good price


    what condition is the body in? rust? is the frame and metal straight?


    drivetrain? etc....if you give more examples of the condition the k5ers will be able to help you out.




    hope this helps some

    That vintage sub around here is probably $2500 now. A pretty nice one just sold here for $1500. That's assuming 1/2T 4wd in decent shape. In your area, who knows. Here they're really popular, there are tons of subs around.
