That'd be Legendary here - he's had the D90 for sale for a while now.

I do. Military roots. Factory lockers etc. The modern stuff isn't to my taste particularly, but the earlier ones sure are.

Yeah I can't stand them since they switched from the 90's dash. Those screens ruined them.

I'd love to have a 300 GE Cabriolet with cloth seats like this one.

I can't believe a 2003 still pulls 42k. Crazy.

I guess that is a low mileage truck, but still. People say the same thing about the D90's so, I guess the point is moot anyway

This, the early 463s with modern diesel powerplants are drool worthy, I don't care for the US spec trucks

we still have our 03.. don't drive it much anymore but haven't had any major mechanical issues. I just can't bring myself to sell it considering what i paid.. at some point ill put a lift and tires etc on it and just beat the hell out of it till it dies.

My 03' g500 was a good truck, except for window regulators which they updated finally
