Default 2006 GMC Crew Cab Duramax LBZ 1013 ORIGINAL miles / NEVADA truck in MA

Contemplating selling this truck. I just bought it from Nevada and Im having a bit of buyers remorse. It is now located in MA.

It is an anomoly for sure in that it looks like it is still on the lot back in 2006. Many factory stickers and plastic wrap still in place. Was stored inside a warehouse in Nevada and has never even been washed. It WAS however started regularly and driven occasionally, it didnt just sit and collect dust.

I paid a premium price for it, flew out there to do the deal, paid to ship it and now the sales tax too. Wondering what others think this is worth?

2006 GMC Sierra 2500HD SLT Crew Cab Duramax / Allison 4x4 6.5 bed.

No accidents, no smoking, no sun exposure, no tuners or engine mods, no kidding. Truck is legit, flawless and like it was lost in time.


Looking for input on what it would be worth. The blue book values are irrelevant for this truck due to the circumstances.

$50. I'm sure it was bad to sit that long and all seals are dry rotted. When can I come pick it up from you?

It is a newish 7 year old truck which equals used. You will not get any more than a excellent shape 2006 LBZ is worth. IMO.

Well I respect your opinion , but I doubt that will be the case. I just happened to be the first person to respond to the original Owners ad and secure it with a deposit. He regretted doing that as his phone was ringing off the hook for weeks afterwards with over anxious buyers and many offers higher in order to break the deal with me.

It was a nice find......but it was def a premium price. I also own 2002 F250 Crew Lariat 7.3 complete stock with low miles that is pretty awesome too. Tough decision especially since I have no miles on GMC but ........

Not trying to be a DB, but why are the blue book values irrelevant? It is still a 7 year old used truck. Its not a collectors car, its a work truck. I would base the value on the KBB/edmunds/NADA used private party value.

if you just bought it.... what did you pay for it? that should give you a starting point of what it might be worth.

that said... i know that is "the" year of that motor to have, so there is a premium placed on that. just depends. i'd would not think you are going to get much north of the high 20's. just my opinion.

I asked for opinions and thats what Im getting so I dont think your a db....... Well this actually was a show truck.....and with 1310 miles on it I dont think there is any thing out there to compare it to. the NADA is just under $35K and I paid more than that before the other costs involved.

What does "show truck" mean if it is completely stock? Was this a display truck at shows?

As a prospective buyer who has been watching the used truck market for some time, here are my thoughts, and this is purely my opinion.

1) It is a 7 year old truck that will be 2 generations out of date when the 2015s go into production in January.

2) Only having 1310 miles is nice, but to me that doesn't carry much additional weight over a truck with say 30,000 miles (and more). Either is going to be new enough to be in very good shape.

3) While I personally like the look of GMC slightly better than Chevy, this is still the same truck as a Silverado, so your comparison pool isn't as small as you might think. A quick search of cars.com shows that you can get into 2011 2500 LTZs with the redesigned chassis and under 30k miles for mid to upper 30s, which is where I assume you are pricing this truck.

Personally, for comparable money, I would rather have the newer truck, with the updated interior, current chassis, etc, if my only tradeoff is 25k miles... For me to be interested in this truck, it would have to be priced with a 2 in front.

I thought it was all stock like it pulled off showroom floor? So what's show about it? I've had a few duramaxes and still do. They are great trucks. I'd start it at 30k and work down if no one bites. I honestly think its only worth 24-25k max

This is true. I'm actually listing my 2011 for 33k this week and it books at 38k. Loaded with every possible option and 10" lift, dpf delete etc.

It was used to display some aftermarket accessories at SEMA shows. these were all bolt on external accessories, no engine or interior mods and it is all stock.

The whole idea here for its high valuation is for the engine/ driveline. The newer ones may look nicer ( subjective)but what makes this truck valuable is the no BS engine in it.

No chance this price will have a "2" in it! l

I have a feeling this truck will sell to the person that knows exactly what they are looking for and at. Thsi truck isnt , " new enough" ....it is essentially new beyond belief. Looks like I need pics to emphasize my point.

I think it's safe to say that we all understand that this is a brand new 2006 truck. The biggest issue is that it is currently 8 and soon to be 9 model years old.

I think that this statement is going be your biggest problem if you decide to sell it, because all of this is completely irrelevant to the value of the truck. These costs may influence what you are willing to sell it for, but they have zero importance to what a buyer may be willing to pay.

Truth is, I'm sure this is an awesome truck, and I'm not trying to beat you up - I'm just giving my thought process as a buyer.

Its the same motor as all of them. Just programmed different and e couple other small changes. Now that there is options for the 2011-14's to delete I see the popularity fading for the pre dpf trucks. Just put it up at the price that is in your head and see.

I would think KBB value plus a slight premium for it being showroom clean with no miles is going to be about all you get from the average used truck buyer.

You may wanna check out some of the diesel forums and see if there is a place you can advertise it where it will be seen by someone who understands and has a need for what you have. This will be where you find the extra dollars you expect.

There are some who say you can get a premium for the early 06s due to the LLY Duramax not having the EPA stuff on it. The other side of that is the later 06s with the LBZ engines had more horsepower and got better fuel mileage which I would prefer but I'm not a buyer today.

Either way it sounds like you have bought a great truck.
Would love to see some pics.

You have a habit of buying old trucks at high prices eh? I remember the 7.3 you were trying to sell for 30k. Sorry they are work trucks and not collectors items. I don't possibly see why someone would pay 35k+ for a near 10yr old pickup. I can buy a year or two old for that price.

Here's the 7.3 for practically 30k.
