Addition to my hoard 2002 silverado

Today I bought a 2002 Silverado. Kinda ruff. has rust at rear cab corners and dents in the bed. 4.8 Vortec engine runs good has a oil leak. 4 wheel drive that all works. Pack rats have chewed some wires and gas gage and fuel gage don't work. air cond works. never been in a collision has a good title. owner was a chain smoker and inside the cab is covered in that cigarette tar. However for $500 I thought It is a good buy?

Still a good buy,it is getting harder to find trucks that haven't been beat to death,about the smell,very hard to get rid of cig smell,good scrubing and some air freshners.I bought a 2006 2500HD 4 wd off a friend,he bought it new,him and his wife owned a horse farm,and used the truck to haul horses,it smelled like horse and hay,I tried to clean it and after 4 years on my ownership it stilled had some horsey smell to it,lol.

Sounds like good deal, but looks like truck is at least an 2003 front end. 02 was the last year before they went to that look. Nice looking truck for the price!

Re: Addition to my hoard 2002 silverado

Ive left the windows down im not a smoker. I thing Im gonna pull the bucket seats and install a bench seat. and give it a good scrubbing with simple green. I would rather smell horse than tobacco tar and 500 pound fat guy smell. Eny road I have plenty of time to get it presentable.

Title says 2002. It might have been in a deer collision and been changed. Lots of deer here.

Re: Addition to my hoard 2002 silverado

230,000 miles. Firewood season is almost here. I think I will insure it and use it to haul firewood and use when feeding cattle this season. By spring it will not owe me anything. We have a 2005 3/4 ton with a 6.0 and Allison 4 speed 4 wheel drive. Its a reallly nice truck. Too nice to beat it up driving in the woods and drive when they salt the roads. and the 6.0 uses a lot of fuel. I think the 4.8 would be easier on fuel. and the 06 is a extended cab and the bed aint big enough to haul a good load. I can get two large round bales in a long bed Pk and only one in the extended cab. Our farm is down a gravel road. It stays muddy in the winter. our mud has acid in it and will rust vehicles pretty bad.
