So here she is, in all her 82k mile glory. I just bought this 2-3 weeks ago. So far, so good. No complaints. its only a bit more thirsty than my 2004 Envoy 5.3, about 1 mpg.

I searched for months... and months.. for the right ride. This isnt the exact color combo I was wanting, but the pearl white/white is so hard to keep clean. Was hoping to find the emerald green, or the saphire red, but never could find a good example, with great miles, and a great price.

I paid 9900 for the truck, and 1100 on tires. Transferred over the bluetooth module, and RSE, from the Envoy. Still need a few odds and ends that need some touch up (rear suspension, and some paint correction).

Yes I know the fog light lens is hanging off (if you missed it), its already been fixed.

Was it from a dealer? You got a great deal imo. Are you going to replace the rear handle or just remove the rest of it? What are the engine/idle hours?

That is an absolute steal! She looks pretty spectacular for 82k miles! That’s awesome! I’ve always wanted a sapphire red caddy as well. I wanted my Denali in that color as well and couldn’t find it either. Ended up with silver birch metallic which is just slightly different than your silver but pretty close! Those Michelin tires will serve you well!

Yeap, from a dealer, a Chevy dealer at that!

Don't know the engine idle hours. The cluster was replaced at a Cadi dealer in Las Vegas, and the miles was set, but not the hours. It currently shows 299 hours. If you do the math, that comes up to 275mph! As cool as that would be.... It's just not plausible. Miles verified thru service history, and Carfax.

I did find another problem today, the power folding mirror on the passenger side don't work.

Other than that, I'm going to keep the Z55 suspension. Get some Arnott shocks, and a Dorman compressor.

Need to get that Tailgate handle, but I have searched. Don't think I am using the right search term. Any help there would be appreciated.

I have been running Michelin Defender LTX M/S tires for nearly 24 years. Love those tires.

And yes, I do have the third row seats. Sitting in a storage bin in my garage. Mint condition.
