Question Problems buying a truck

Ok I have had a dodge 12v and loved the truck, I have had a 7.3 powerstroke and hated it. Here is what im looking for. 03-05 Dodge or GMC/Chev diesel foor door short bed 2 wheel drive. If I get a dodge its gonna have to be a 6 speed. I know...im picky... Any way I have found an early 04 GMC duramax 4door short bed 2wd it has 123k miles on it. Power everything and good paint. How much is it worth? I was thinking around 10-11k but i dont know alot about how much there bringing. Another thing iv heard alot about injectors going out in the lb7's...should i be scared of the miles? I know im ramblin on but i need help, just let me know what you think..

Thanks

10K sounds about right for one (at least where I live) If your worried about the injectors have the VIN checked. The guys here checked mine for me and I learned alot about what had been done to my truck. I wouldn't be to scared of the miles, as long as it's been taken care of it should last several hundred thousand miles.

I would start with kbb.com and enter some data.

then I would start searching auto trader or even ebay or craigslist and see what the they are really going for.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.
