A brand new LTZ Z71 with an extra package or two is around $55K MSRP with none of the ubiquitous $9-$10K discounts. Paying $45K for a lift & cosmetics on that used model seems like a screwing of biblical proportions.
Thanks for confirming that. When I laugh as such things, everyone automatically thinks I'm just a cheap bastard and it's probably worth every penny.

Here's the thing I discovered selling lifted bro mobiles for a few years; buyers who want lifted trucks want to buy them lifted. So that's the mindset you have to understand.

So a brand new "Black widow" 2019 LTZ Z71 4x4 Crew with dealer installed color matched fender flairs, ranch style bumper, 6" lift with 35's on 20's would retail for around $65,000. And trust me they know they don't have to budge much, because???

Buyers who want lifted trucks want to buy them lifted.

So yeah Gixxer could find a deal on a new one for $47k ish but he'd be at $57k ish if he wanted to set it up like the one in the OP. Given that, if he could get the truck in the OP for around $43,000 he'd save $14,000 compared to new.

Yes. It's everyone on here bashing this poser-mobile that has bad taste. NOT you. Must be why you are so well respected and loved on CF.
