Hello all,

My name is Joel and new to entire diesel world. I am looking at purchasing a 2005 3500 cc lb. I am curious as to what I should be aware of prior to commiting myself to this purchase. Are there any known issues with this model that you are aware of? Like I said it is 2005 with 25K miles and the dealer is asking $27,888. The miles seem really low, but it could still be a good find. I would like to know if the red flags would be raised and any precautions to take. I plan on looking at a carfax and taking it to a mechanic. It looks fairly clean and I have not been down to see it just yet. It is being shipped back from Spokane. Any adive would be greatly appreciated.

Nice looking truck. With the 05s they sometimes have overheat issues that can be fixed with a turbo mouthpiece upgrade. Other than the LLY is a good motor. It is what I have in my 06.

Looks clean. If not a chevy house, take the VIN to a GM dealer and ask them to pull the VIN to see what warranty/routine maintenance has been accomplished.

Take care,
