I had an 01 Crew cab LB7 and let her go at 134k. It was giving an airbag light and Chevy cancer eating out the doors and rear fender. It was a stock truck and had few problems out of it. Making a long story short, I wasn't married at the time and had a crap job. I miss that truck. Sold it to get a newer gasser for the job I took at the time. Miss that truck all the time. With this EPA stuff thats going on I'd put money in it if you have it available and keep it. I've gotten another LB7 and it's a garage queen now.

If an older truck doesn't have rust, fix it! I sold my 2002 a couple of years ago because I bought a new truck and couldn't see having two trucks. I am not sure if I made the right choice or not. My truck ran great and had 270k on it. It needed nothing, but the new truck spoiled me.
