is this bad or good news?

i talked to a guy today (owner of a job im workin at)
some how or another my truck used to be his and he had a teribliy good relationship with it.
but to get to the point he offered me 10 grand for my truck and i turned it down.
then 12 grand
then 13 grand
then he offered me a 2004 chevy duramax with 80,000 miles on it, new tires, ball joints, and tie rod ends, ext. cab, with a hypertech programmer.

he rode me in it and it got around 18-20 mpg's!!!
im seriously consitering it

to sell it and then get me a new (newer) stroker
good deal?

Is his truck paid for. Or are you going to have to finance the truck.

You may want to find out. If it is financed then don't do it. because he maybe negative with the truck. Which would put you negative as well. Meaning he may owe more then the truck is worth.

IF you want to go fast take the DMAX they will throw you in the back of the seat. Just swap the hypertech out for a EFI Live.
