I have been eyeing a 2013 Chevrolet Express 1500 4WD with 230,000 miles on it. Anyone have any experience with these vehicles? Should I jump on it? I plan on putting a raised top on it, a full build inside, and maybe a lift for getting out into the woods/mountains.
While the van seems to be well maintained, in great shape, and close to what I am looking for, 230,000 is a lot of miles on any vehicle. I would hate to get into a build and have a ticking time bomb on my hands, or be getting a vehicle that is overly expensive to repair, or with parts that are hard to find, etc. These are common fleet vehicles (minus the 4WD) so I can’t imagine parts will be hard to find, but I am having trouble finding any hard info on maintenance/repairs. Any help is greatly appreciated!!
