    Default Newb Looking at an 05

    Hi,
    I'm looking at an 05 Silverado 1500 with 50000 miles. It looks to be in pretty good shape, it is lifted, probably 4 inches. I havent looked at it real close yet because the guy doesnt want to sell until spring which is a few months away.
    I would like to know what to look for on this truck, what were common problems with these trucks? How long can I expect it to last if properly maintained?
    How solid are the trannys on these trucks?
    thanks

    The trannys can last a while if taken care of.
    When inspecting things check the usual, no leaks, everyting works, hasent been abused, take test drives and do all sorts of tests, acceleration, stopping, ect.
