I just hit 215,000 miles with my truck. I just had the transmission rebuilt at 213,000, and it was the original transmission. This truck will run forever and it has never broken down on me anywhere. I wish the gas mileage was better, but with as many miles that this engine has, it still has smooth, strong power. An awesome workhorse. I wish I could buy another '93, brand new. I will definitely stick with a Chevrolet, but only after this truck can no longer run. I plan on rebuilding the engine so it should go for another 200,000 miles.

Wear items: Alternator, belts,
battery, tires are all that has ever
been changed on this truck. Extremely
dependable if you properly maintain it.
ei: tuneups, oil changes,
tires/rotation. currently has 130k on
the odometer and has been a major
maintenance free vehicle. I earn my
living with this truck and depend on it
heavily for towing, off road, hauling.
Reasonable gas mileage for a 4 wheel
drive at 18 hwy and 15 city. This
truck is like a comfortable pair of
blue jeans. One of the most
comfortable trucks I have ever owned.
