Nah, I had 30Gs into Sub. It was 2012, so figured I sell it before it gets too old. IMO 30k for a second vehicle is too expensive and I do need a cheaper 2nd truck for no more than 15k. 5.3s are decent, indeed and last into 250-300k miles easily. However, I've not been able to yet locate a 1500 Silverado/Sierra either crew or supercab under 12-13k with ~100k miles. I will lift the thing, so adding even a conservative investment of 3k(tires/rims/lift/steering shocks....not impossible but more like 4-5k), after paying sales tax and registering the thing, I will be in over my 15k budget. I would think a GM 6.0 V8 03-07 Generation would still outlive a 5.3L 07-14...... No replacement for displacement, as the saying goes? Some people commented that H2 tows better than 1500 Silverados, but it's a very anecdotal evidence.
