Traded up to a LML (Denali) from a problem child LLY

So after having my latest LLY for only a few months and one thing after another go wrong I started looking for a deal on a 2012 before the end of the year (and all the 12s were gone) deals were gone. Late in the afternoon yesterday I came across this truck about 75 miles away so I called and they stayed open till 9pm so I headed down. Well after going back and forth with them for a couple hours we came to a deal. Here are some pics....

Old Truck


And the new one

So far I'm loving it! It seems to have a more positive ride and the power is good. My old truck had a few things done to it, and power wise this truck is not far off in that aspect. I cant wait to get a trailer on it and see how it pulls. But the best thing of all I dont have to worry when the head gaskets are going go, if its going to over heat this time I'm pulling and have pump rub in the back of my mind.

Well the truck had a sticker of 59,XXX and after the rebates and all that jazz the truck was down to 50,XXX. The main thing I had to be a dick about was the price they wanted to give me for my truck. The first offer they gave me was 14,500 and told them that they was crazy, so they asked what I had to have and I told them 20k so they went back in their little office and came back with 17k, well after doing that one more time I got them to give me 19k for it. Now like I said I only had my old truck a few months and I paid 20k for it so I still owed 19,500 and not knowing what I would have to pay to tag it (I bought it in OK and I live in KS so will have to pay sales tax at the tag office) so I didn't want to put any money down, I ended up barrowing 51,5XX. I got into the truck for about 8k under sticker after taking a little hit on my trade.
