    3/4 ton 454 94 Chevy 4x4

    I'd be trading in my 92 Yukon 2-door. I may try and sell it outright, but I don't know if my concience will let me sell it for what I need to get out of it. I still owe $6k on it, but it needs a lot of work and I can barely afford to keep it. How much do you guys figure I can get for it if I sell it outright or if I trade it in? The guy at the gas station has been bugging me to sell it to him for a while now, so I may just see what he will give me for it. I love this truck, but it is time to throw in the towel and move on.

    Try edmunds.com or kbb.com to get an idea what your Yukon is worth.

    Also, don't forget that the pickup may have money-hungry issues of its own.

    Good luck,

    kbb sucks. I know I can get at least $6k and they say $4k. I bet if I put some foreign POS that it would say it is worth more.

    I think I may sell all my cars except for my Bandit TA and my S-10 Blazer and buy a nice truck, something newer with possibly a Duramax. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The sad thing about buying a new(er) truck is the Avalanche front clip looks like butt, to me anyway.

    Yep, kbb isn't any good, but it might at least give you a lowball figure to start from, at least.

    Yeah, I'm going to go for one of the trucks from right before the Avalanche frontend. I want a 2500 with a Duramax, but those are pricey. If I can unload all my cars and get some serious money in my business, I can probably afford one, or at least get close to payments I can afford. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    This really sucks, I always wanted a 2-door Yukon like mine, now I gotta sell it because it is a POS. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I hear ya! Those avalanches are uuuglyyyy! I am going to buy a K2500HD with the duramax and allison, but a 01 or 02 with the cool looking front clip. One thing is though is chevy is reintroducing the K3500 SRW! /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif But it has the lame avalanche clip. I really wan't the 1ton and I might swap out the av. clip for the cadi escalade clip(yeah, I know I know... but the escalade clip is better looking than the av. clip IMHO). I think I will go with a Whiplash 10" kit and 35's. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Blaze,I would definantly get that 94' K2500! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Dude, you aren't kidding with the butt ugle fronts. Luckily the GMC versions still have the older style.

    Yep, the GMC is the only new pickup that I'd buy, just because they still have a decent looking clip.

    Also, on the new 3500's, could you swap in the old HD clip and fenders??? Probably pricey, but it would be distinctive!
