2006 GMC Sierra 2500 Description

This was my personal contractor work truck, it's a 2006 gmc sierra 2500 hd extended (full bed), crew cab. 4WD, TURBO CHARGED Duramax diesel (6.6)it has a 10"-12" Cognito brand lift kit w/traction bars, it has Toyo open country M/T 37x13.50xr17 LT tires and dick cepek aluminum wheels/rims, a pioneer double DIN radio, cd/DVD, xm satellite, reverse camera, remote control, (radio for some reason is currently not working though?) there is some scattered rust, with the worst of it being on the bed, in particular under the upper lip on the front of the bed just behind where it comes up to the back of cab (hard to show in pictures), some dents, again these are mostly on the bed. It has a broken rear driver side cab door handle that snapped pulling too hard in freezing temperatures, (which happened once before on the passenger rear cab door, that was easily fixed). Although not shown in the pictures with it on, it does have and comes with a tailgate (shown separately in a picture) Both the tailgate lights are in poor condition, as well as both the front and rear bumpers are not in very good condition.
The interior is in fairly good condition, with some wear spots on the drivers side rug. It has front bucket seats with a middle console. I also have 4 extra black rims with smaller tires, That I only used in the winter when snow plowing, because they seem to "dig in" better when there is heavy snow, as opposed to the wider Toyo tires seem to "float" more in heavier snow when trying to plow. (The rims are the same size as my Dick Cepek's, but the tires are smaller and skinnier, I believe the size are somewhere around 32" tall?) and all are very wore down at this point now. The truck is equipped for a snow plow (plow has been sold) so it has a "Fisher brand" minute mount snow plow frame installed under the front frame. The wires that may appear in the pictures hanging under the front and rear frame, are all snow related wires that can be easily removed. Its also equipped with a "Whelan brand" 6 light flasher/strobe system, which has 6 hidden Led lights installed inside all the front headlights and rear tail lights, and 2 installed inside the middle of the upper cab running lights.
This truck has never been in any major accidents, only fender benders! And despite the obvious exterior "cosmetic" flaws, mechanically speaking, this truck, as like all my vehicles, have always been very very well maintained. (figuratively speaking, my stuff may not look great BUT ALWAYS RUN GREAT!) The oil was always replaced between every 3 to say 5K of miles, and synthetic oil was always used, with the exception of the first two oil changes during the motors "break in" period. This truck runs great, the transmission works great.The truck has sat and has been sitting for a while, and has not really been used at all since the end of last winter, so when I started it and ran it the last time before putting it up for sale, the brake pedal felt a bit "spongy"... and I also noticed a very small (very small) fluid puddle on the driveway coming from under the engine and/or transmission area) but again, I think thats from sitting around for such a long time?
Couple of additional things: I know either last year or the year before, all the brake lines were completely replaced with all new after market brake lines being installed. (those of you with GM trucks, will or should know that GM brake lines are notorious for rotting out faster than normal) Also, because it recently has not been used as much these past few years during the Summer months, in November of 2015 while preparing for it for that upcoming winter season, the Turbo charge was not working properly, so that has been completely rebuilt as well! Again, this was only explained to me by my mechanic, that this happened because it was hardly or never used, and sat during the entire Spring and Summer months of 2015! It also has been legitimately inspected, and has a current inspection tag that I believe is due again.
As for the frame itself, it does show surface rust in areas, but absolutely nothing or anything major or what is to be expected from an 11 year old vehicle. This has always been pressure washed and steamed cleaned after every snow storm it was driven in, with a "salt-away" chemical solution that was always used as a rinsing agent to prevent and counter-react any salt deposits left behind (saltawayproducts.com)
Its also equipped with a super heavy duty "CurtMFG brand" tow hitch/receiver. It use to have full length running boards installed, but unfortunately they never lasted and were removed, so it only has a "home made" steel step assistant mounted under the driver side front door for getting in.
The truck only has 72k+ miles, (VERY LOW MILES FOR A DIESEL) and in my opinion has a low reserve, which was only based slightly higher than what I was actually offered by my dealer for its "trade in" value for the new truck that has already been ordered and waiting to be built and delivered. (And PLEASE don't ask what the reserve is, or what my truck dealer offered me... the sole reason for a reserve is to be discrete, and to obviously get $.$$ what I want or better than what the dealer has appraised it for!) Simply put, just enter your highest bid your willing to offer, right in from the beginning, click automatic bidding, and with any hope you could and might actually receive it for less, if the bidding stalls out as it finishes selling?! So happy bidding!
