Hey guys! I'm looking at buying myself a newer truck to use as a daily driver. I'd decided that I wanted a regular cab longbox, or ext cab shortbox 96+ 4x4 Chevy pickup, with a 5.7 / 5 speed. I've found a few trucks that fit the bill in the area, but one in specific that came up is a 2500HD Regular Cab Longbox 6.5L diesel truck with a 5 speed, full load of options, and really low miles, only about 65 000. The guy is asking $6500, which is 500 more than the Pathfinder I have right now is gonna be selling for (already have a buyer) What do you guys think, is the diesel engine worth considering? I will be using the truck for driving between home and the bus station to catch a ride to school each morning, which is about a 20 minute drive at 60 mph for most of the trip. I would also use the truck for hauling water, and taking my quad around. My only real concern is cold starting. I live in an area that frequents -30 to -40F, and I would need it to sit in the parkade for most of the day while I am at school, without any power for plugging in, unless I score and get one of the nicer spots with power. I suppose an option is a remote starter that will start and run the truck for 10 minutes every hour or two to keep it warm, but I can see that using a lot of fuel, and also creating some major carbon buildups... What do you guys think?
