Am I crazy?

Right now I am in the market for a new truck. I found a 2006 LBZ sierra 2500 SLT loaded with everything. It has 100,000 miles, new tires, stock, the rocker panels and cab corners with new steel, the fuel lines have been replaced. Asking $25,000.. Is it just crazy to buy a 2006 for that kind of money and one that has 100k on it?

2015.5 Silverado 2500hd CC/SB, stock for now

SOLD 2003 duramax CC/LB MBRP5in turbo back with 6in tip, AFE stage II with pro guard 7, edge with attitude, Retrax bed cover, Spray in Bed liner, tires 285/75/16, RECON bright white cab lights, HID conversion

That's top end price, IMHO. And as stated, rust could be an issue. One of the places to look is the cross rails under the bed. Mine were pretty rusty when I sold it last year, and it had fewer miles and less winter driving.

LBZ trucks are still bringing money compared to the LB7 and LLY mostly because of pre-DPF and higher HP. It's hard to find one around here for under $20K that's not full of miles.
