So, I've been actively new and used truck shopping. A bigblock 2500HD with a ZF wouldn't be delivered until after the new year so I've pretty much given up on a new truck. I found a brand new 2005 2500HD for $30k with all the bells and whistles but they won't budge on the price (already 10k below sticker but most of that comes out of corporate's pcokets). I found a bunch of 96-99 half ton pickups that look nice but approach $10k (or a wee bit over). I found some 3/4 tons... none of them impressed me too much and most of them had a crappy carfax report (if any of you guys need something run on carfax, let me know). Then, today, my Dad found a 1999 4x4 crew cab dually SLT with $9,000 written on the window. He didn't get out of the truck (was after dark, he's going back tomorrow morning) but it has brand new tires and a giant exhaust system on it. So, I figure it's probably a 6.5TD truck. Is this a fair price for one? eBay seems to be lying to me or something. There are very few when I search for "completed auctions". What should I look for? The truck is a bit long for my tastes but it seems like it'd make an alright tow rig for the price. I'd end up daily driving it for about a year (probably take me a year to pay it off) and then it'd probably just get used for long drives or towing. I haven't found a lot of information on the 6.5L either. It doesn't seem to be nearly as documented as the 6.2L or 6.6L.
