    Is it an EXT? I need that bed. A guy just sold a similar one on CL and he was asking $12.5k.

    Ended up scoring a winner in Jacksonville Florida. 175k miles Escalade EXT. It is higher miles than I wanted, but it had a dealer installed crate motor at 100k. Everything works and it rides smooth as silk - put about 8 hours on it already between Jacksonville and Winston-Salem, then had it shipped for the final leg. The selling point was that when I crawled under it, there wasn't a spec of rust. OK maybe a spec, but nothing like what you get in Michigan. All the axles still had the black coating, and the paint was still white. It still needs a little work - couple dents, the CHMSL is out, but it was about the best I was going to do. Got the original wheels with it too, so will probably run summer/winter tires.

    Andy, do you run a club or any other anti-theft device? I did a little research, and the Escalade EXT was one of the most stolen vehicles in the country while it was being produced... So that should be fun!

    Nice!

    No, i don't use any theft deterrent. With my windows blacked out you couldn't see it anyway.

    I have it insured for an agreed value.

    Just park it next to a kia, durango or charger when you go out. No anti theft device needed then.

    Cool

    Well, it took me months to find it, I just drove it back from Austin, Texas, I love it and ......

    I'm already thinking, if I were to sell it? LOL!

    2011 4x4 Tahoe, Fire Chief vehicle, 106,000 RUST FREE miles! Loaded with emergency
    lighting and siren. Truck drove great @ 100+ mph. Made the 1,350 mile trip wonderfully!

    I'm thinking $19,500. as a minimum? Given the rarity and condition, what do you guys think?

    I highly doubt I'll sell it, but something a friend said
    got me thinking & if someone would pay me enough.

    If this doesn't sell, that would be fine. It it does,
    that too would be fine, but it would have to be
    worth the time & work.
