put a down payment on a 2004 :) lol...If the guy is presuring you to buy it walk away....always offer 1000$ less than he wants and work it from there. Always have the information on the truck before you go to see it. IE check the bluebook value online at kbb.com before, theres alot of people out there that will try and tell you oh its bluebook is higher than it really is.

Dont be afraid to walk away, they want you. If getting a used truck try to get it from a private party vs. a dealership, unless your buddy works at one and you can get a smoking deal. Dont give away your last dollar, because theres tax and licensing plus insurance to think about.

If you can get something newer than a 95. The engines on the 06 and up have more power and better mpg. Not that an older one isn't good.

IMO, I like the interior and grille better on the '95 and up, on the Chevy's at least. Also, the '96-98 Vortec is a much better engine than the TBI.
