Default 2000 Silverado 2500 4x4 (9300.00)

I am selling my favorite vehicle I have ever owed. Wife and I are coverting to more fuel efficent cars.

2000 Silverado 2500 3 door 4x4
6.0 liter
4L80E transmission
heated leather interior
stock cd player
two sets of wheels, aluminum with Pro Comp 285 tires, and a set of chrome H2 Wheels with BFG Mud Terrians
Pewter in color with matching capper
Tonneau cover
Silverstar lights in EVERY socket
Paint updated by Star Customs about 3 years ago
Mileage is showing 150k, but heres the catch. EVER since I owned this truck I have had oversized tires on it, and did not fix the speedo. According to GPS, the speedo is 7 MPH high. So figure over three and a half years of that, I guess the truck to have 120k ish AT BEST on it.
Uses no oil, starts fine, runs perfectly. I do all my own maintiance, and that includes trans and diff services, plugs, and general stuff.
Remote start put on at winters start this year.
I will also throw in the Z06 cam I have that goes with the truck.
Also has a custom Magnaflow exhaust setup with dual polished tips. Sounds AWESOME IMO

I love this truck people, it has never given me any issues, and runs fabulous. It is really just fuel economy I am selling it for. I dont tow enough to drive it daily.

I will entertain trades of lesser tow vehicles, but nothing too high dollar. The next hauler I get will be a beater that runs good and pulls my boat, thats it.

Two known issues with my truck currently. The driver side seat has a tear in the vinyl like ALL of these trucks with leather get. And the front brakes are 3 point stopping and hitting the squealers. So its going to need a front brake job. But they are no where near grinding, and I still regularly take this truck 2.5 hours north to Houghton Lake.

Great truck, that has been WELL taken care of its whole life.

9000.00

While I appreciate the offer, I have my heart set on a Wrangler and a beater hauler.

I think you have the spedo and oversized tire thing mixed up. Won't bigger tires will make your speedo read slower than you are actually going, and make your odometer read less miles than you've actually traveled. I have 315's on my truck (that i'm selling also, to buy an older 3/4 ton gasser) and thats the case with mine. someone else chime in if i'm wrong here.

You're correct, it'll have higher miles than it says and the speedo will read slower than you're really going.
It's also worth mentioned that the speedo won't be off by a constant MPH, but by a ratio/percentage dependant on speed. If it's off by 10% it'll read 3MPH slow at 30MPH and 8MPH slow at 80MPH. Plus for it to read 150k when there are only 120k miles would mean that it's been off by 25% for the entire life of the vehicle due to MUCH smaller tires. It'd take a huge difference in size to have that big of an effect on the speedo/odometer. Going from the stock 265s to 285s will make the mileage read maybe 5% lower than it really is, if that. I don't feel like doing the actual math but it's not gonna be much. If it says 150k it's probably got more like 155k.

Not trying to fukk up your sale thread, just clarifying your mileage issue.

I'm not going to argue this either, but when I am doing 70 on the GPS, and the speedo is showing 79, that means miles are going on faster then the truck is actually going.

And for the last three years i have had 305 Goodyears on it, and now I run a 285 Pro Comp.

Argue the mileage all you want, this truck is solid and worth the cost. Now if your not buying, GTFO

I'll trade, give me a reliable beater hauler to pull my 26 foot Cuddy Cabin with, and your 97 or newer Wrangler with a 4 banger and a stick in it and its a deal :D

I already know what I want, I need to move this truck to do it. The Wrangler will be my DD and the hauler will keep me from selling my boat.

If you do much HWY driving your 4 cylinder wrangler wont do much better than a 4.0 18mpg vs 16mpg, I have owned them both and as soon as you put 33s on them the 4.0 will get the same.

all 2 lane back roads to work, but 30 miles of them. And I wont run larger tires, I just want the convertible top and the 4 wheel drive for the snow. Strange though that the mileage is so bad. Any reason why?

take your pick:
  • barn door aerodynamics
  • 4:10 gearing in the 4 banger stock has ya spinning higher rpms than one would otherwise.
  • it's a 4 banger, so one will need to beat it a little just to keep up in traffic.
  • said 4 banger isn't really a 'modern design'
I can vouch for the mid/high teens as best you'll get for an old YJ 4 banger.

nice looking truck! bump for ya

it's funny your vehicle is the only one that the speedo runs faster instead of slower with bigger tires! My jeeps is off about 10% due to the stock tires being 235/17-15 and I have 265/75-16 on it now, at 65 on the speedo I'm really doing about 71. Your truck must have really been racking up the miles with the smaller tires on it!

I'm guessing it was the shop that did the tune rework. I asked them to adjust for the tire size, and I think he just missed it completely. And I have never had small tires on it since I owned it, but I bet your right. Odometer would probably turn like the national debt
