How much should I pay for a 2003 Chevy 2500HD?

I may have a chance to buy a 2003 Chevy 2500. But I know next to nothing about the newer Chevy trucks. Here is what I know about this one.
4x4
Extended cab (Four door)
Leather interior (driver seat needs a little attention)
Nice aluminum tool box and bed rails.
Good tires
Now, for the not so good. The truck has been wrecked. But the damage is only skin deep. I have to replace the hood, grill, radiator, radiator support, fan, and maybe a few odds and ends here and there. The frame and engine are fine. Oh, and the air bag deployed so I have to replace the steering wheel. I do not know the mileage or the condition of the drive train other than it all appears intact. We do not have a lot of money to spend right now but it looks as though I can get the truck for $1500 and the parts for less than that. The one thing I really do not like is the truck has a gas engine. I think it is a 6.0. Well Chevy guys, what do you think?

$1,500 sounds fair if you can do the work yourself. Provided the frame isnt bent.

I could not raise the money for it. So it sold at auction for $4500.

I know EXACTLY how you feel. Happens to me all the time. Keep your chin up though, plenty of trucks out there.

I know here in Wisconsin if a vehicle has had an air bag deployment all you can get is a salvage title.. Not sure if that is the case in all states. But just throwing it out as information..

I do not think that is the case here in GA. At least I hope not becuase it is a stupid law.
