Default CARFAX - can somebody help me out??

I know there are several dealers on here (at least there were).
Can someone run a Carfax for me? It's on an '05 Avalanche 2500 8.1 ltr.
I can PM the details and VIN.

BECAREFUL CARFAX isn't 100%. I purchased a car with a clean bill of health and a police friend of mine ran the vin to show it was hit in the rear with $1,800 in damages, that never showed up on carfax

Anything you suggest I do above and beyond CARFAX from your experience??
I remember reading about you having all kinds of trouble with title and other things with that car.
The truck I'm looking at is on E-bay through a dealer. It's in VA, and I'm just south of Cinci in KY (not the jelly) so it's gonna be a full day haul to pick it up.
I don't want to wind up dropping (to me) large coin on something sight unseen and have it turn out to be a piece of crap. The pics look super clean, and the mileage is low.
Any suggestions of what else to look for from 500ish miles away??

Thanks LS Jr.
That makes me feel a little better.
Almost looks like it's been a corp. vehicle all it's life, and was probably transfered from one location to another (NC to SC).
Good sign that it has been regularly maintained - No??

I am looking for something now and have to get it before winter. The problem is I can't make up my mind on what to buy some econo box or what I really want in a SUV.(full size) I know there are good deals out there to be had now but what does anyone think the market will be in a month or 2? Can anybody get the carfax info or is it just through dealers as I may have to look at many cars or trucks untill I can make up my mind. I hate little cars by the way.
