About to pull the trigger on an LMM

2007.5 GMC 3500 CCLB SLT 150k Miles cloth interior
Belonged to a construction company, mainly used for getting workers from a to b on the highway. All stock, seemed to run well and didnt show any signs of trans issues, strong motor, strong shifts. I took it to a local dealership and there was a few issues that needed fixed, the seller was going to get all of this done on his own dime, which was nice. Also going to be getting most all of the fluids changed at the same time. Anyways, i will be paying about 18750 for the truck which seems like a good deal to me for what the truck is. Any thoughts on what i should be looking out for?

Thanks In Advance

I paid 20K on the head for the one in my sig...less than 120K miles. Salient differences are: 2500, SLT, 4X4 & sunroof. You list an SLT but say cloth interior?

SLT has leather. Have you seen the seats?

either way, im not worried about the cloth or leather, im probably wrong. i am just wondering if buying an lmm with 150k on the clock is a bad idea. to me, the truck seemed pretty straight, it did have some dings here and there, but as far as the drivetrain goes, it seemed solid. It has not been tuned. I have faith that after the dealer fixes the few things found upon inspection it will be solid.

note...things the dealer found....
-dpf was "clogged" so they were going to force a regen and they said that would most likely fix it(im going to do exhaust/efi anyways later)
-power steering hoses were leaking, just like most do
-t-case was "damaged" from "hitting something", so it was getting fixed, i hope replaced completely
-coolant flush
-rear brake pads
-rear rotors
-squeaking serpentine belt
-tapshift wasnt functioning correctly
and some other random stuff i cant remember right now

so, for the price, do you think im getting screwed?

thats what im thinkin, even with the things that were found on the dealer inspection. after they fix it up it should be a pretty solid rig. of course its got some dings and dents but thats an easy fix later on down the road

Seems like a good deal, but Id be happier paying 16,500 for it than 18,750.
