To make it simple I'm thinking REAL hard and I'm probably going to buy this but I'm kinda scared because i've never had a 4x4. I'm a noob to the lifted truck world and i'm kinda curious if there is anything I should be looking out for as far as wear and tear. Its an 02 GMC 1500hd with the 6.0 and it has about 51k miles on it.

what he said^, if you get a service 4 wheel drive light, check the soldering in the dash switch. say goodbye to some parking garages and drive thru carwashes(if you use them).. other than that. nice buy!

Just by looking at the crappy job that they did on the body lift, I would stay away from that truck.:imo

Yeah the flares are kinda throwing me off, I havent actually had a chance to go see the truck yet (its about 110 miles away). It also looks like a different style of bumper like off a denali. They have the truck priced about $900 below NADA, plus it has $2300 worth of Intros on it and the lift and the Denali clip....I think its not too bad of a deal

the g 80 in the 14 bolt is pretty tough. denali front clip + replacement steering wheel = front end collision truck imho. look at it hard but it smells funny all the way over here. i'd also like to know how many miles where on it when they changed the dash.

On 1500HD's if it has Auto trac is Does not have the 80E it will have a 4l65E, and a NP246. Those truck are demons to get parts because GM used half ton shit and 3/4 ton shit. It has a 14SF rear axle which is a good axle.

IMHO, I wouldnt get it just by what everyone here has noticed. Good eyes here.

If I were to do it all again, I would get a 3/4 ton with the diesel if I waned a HD truck. Actually, I wish I had a HD...
