Buying an LBZ question

Been awhile since I have been on the forum. Bought a 2006 CCSB LBZ in 2013 and then sold it a year later....huge mistake. Been missing it ever since.

Back in the market for a 2006 or 2007 CCSB LBZ SLT and am floored at the prices. I am seeing 100K to 140K mile trucks listed for $28 and up. 200K mile trucks listed for $22K.

My question to all:

If you were buying a, new to you, LBZ and assuming the condition was basically the same would you pay $28K for a 100 - 140,000 mile truck or $22K for a 200K mile truck and spend the extra 6K on parts?

Thanks for your opinions.

I wouldn't buy either at those prices just plain ridiculous. Look at llys which are essentially the same and usually alot cheaper because they are not the so called best engine. Yes some have hedgasket issues but I wouldn't be afraid to buy one. Also if you live in an area with no emissions get an lmm which can be found for the same prices if not cheaper and delete it.

LMLs can be had for the same or cheaper. I've been looking a bit and found a lot of CCsb/lb ltz/slt/denali trucks with 160k or so for 26-27k. LBZs are ridiculous, because its the newest you can go without a DPF. If you are able to delete, the LML is the best there is currently in my opinion.

Where you located? You should be able to find clean LBZ with sub 150k miles in the low 20s, and even in some cases high teens.

I just don't care for that body style at all. Prefer the classic body style

In August I sold my very clean 2006 ccsb LBZ 122K miles for 24,500. It was fairly unmolested, egr blocked, tuned, exhaust, gauges. I started out ASKING 27,500 because of the history, how clean it was, and mostly untouched. Just because they ask that much, doesn't mean its worth it or that they will get it.

All depends what you plan to do with the truck too. If you're going to spend that much in upgrades, get the lower priced truck. If you're not going to be doing a ton of upgrades, and want to spend that much on the truck itself, do that. Its up to you as far as what you're wanting to do with the truck

very true. My assumption would be that the lower mileage trucks would come off their price a little less than the higher mileage trucks.

Really not planning on upgrades other than when something needs to be replaced. This would be a DD and weekend tow pig...pulling about 8500 pounds(Trailer, 5500 pound jeep and misc, gear).

Even lb7 if you can find o e that has recently had the injectors replaced with paperwork I wouldn't be afraid to buy and those can be had for easily high to mid teens with around 150k

Thanks for your opinions.

If that were my only options I'd pay $6k more for the lower mileage one. But I'd have a hard time paying that for either.
