well its coming from a local dealer thats why the price is a bit high, they will knock atleast 3,000 off if that price they deal alot of used trucks.

Well the private party value on mine ranges from 18,270 to 20,120 so I think it is a fair asking price. A little over a year ago when I bought my 2003 the bank appraised it at 28,300 (I got a steal at 21,900) I thank the damn economy every day for it's abnormally rapid depreciation :doh:. As far as reliability mine just hit 112,000 and I have replaced an injector, icp sensor, front brakes and a ball joint. Would I buy this truck again? Absolutely. So, yeah I have had a few problems with it but a few of them are common parts that wear out at my mileage anyway.

Mine has been great the turbo has been cleaned a long time ago and so far the egr valve is staying clean, so I keep it that way. I tried to tow with the egr unplugged and the engine ran to cold and the fuel milleage sank.

There is no way you could sell your truck for 18-20K.
kbb on my old 04 hd is only 17K :dunno:

Some of the 03's had issues, some didn't. Run the oasis to see what problems your truck has had in the past.

I don't know I ran it again and got the same figures on it, it's not like I am being dishonest??????????? I got the same range for your old truck as well (without knowing what options you had.) Also, take a look on ebay that seems to be about par. :dunno:

maybe I was doing something wrong, was you using kbb?
I apologize, I had no intentions on making you look dishonest.

In my area the market is saturated with used trucks, they just are not bringing that much money around here.

The dealership only offered me 10K trade-in for my truck :doh:
