2500 ride quality 2001-2008


I am looking to buy a 2500 crew cab. Funds limit me to a 2004 and older. I got 20k to spend and will not get a vehicle with a ton of miles . I am looking at around 100k. Anyway, the wife wants to drive a silverado to compare it to a 250 that we drove last week. My question is how does the ride of a 2008 compare to an older truck? I have a 2008 at a local dealer, but the olders trucks are few and far between.

Thanks guys

They're pretty close, but if you can drive a '07 OBS or older truck it would be much closer to the '04 your looking at. The '08s have a slightly different feel because of the styling changes.

can tell you this, had a 05 2500HD for 5 years, recently sold it and bought a 08 same truck, and there is NO comparison in the ride between the two, 08 rides like a caddy compaired to the 05...
