I think you can do better on the price. I have a friend that had a 97 Tahoe that he bought for $4500 that had just over 200K miles on it, and he sold it after a year for what he paid for it and bought a 97 GMC Suburban with 165K miles on it for $4000. Both trucks were in very nice shape (esp. the GMC) so shop around. I did check Craigslist and found that price ($9k) to be average but there are some killer deals out there. I saw this beauty for only $5k!
