    Default New here from NH looking for advice

    Hey im looking at another chevy. This time its a 95 k1500 diesel z71. 307k on the clock. Its only $2500 so i just want to know if there is anything in particular to look out for when looking at it, What anyones opinion is on these trucks, and is it a good investment. Im still in school and dont have a ton of extra cash to dump in it if something goes wrong. Any help would be apreciated thanks

    Welcome aboard Dylan! I have a 98 k1500 and it is rock solid. Mine is gas so I cannot speak for the diesels. Try searching the diesel forum or post your question there for a faster response. Sounds like a good buy if the engine is sound.

    Welcome to the club, Dylan. Sorry I can't help with your diesel question, but I think they ever made a Z-71 diesel in '95. Maybe someone just added the decals.

    Yeah you may be right but the z71 was just the off road suspension package and diesel was an option so maybe this is a rare one that has both.

    Look in the glove box at the build sheet and see if you see a Z-71 option.
