This truck has been in My family for at least 8 years, we got it when it had around 200k on it. We had to rebuild the 5.7L v8 only because the frosh plug fell out and it burned up. it now has 460k on it body, and interior is still decent, and besides regular maintenance, like shocks, starters, breaks and oil changes this truck has been the most reliable truck i've seen. PS minus 40 degrees Celsius, still starts without being plugged in. Like a rock

I was looking for a truck with enough power to tow my race car around. I liked the clean lines of the Chevy. The body sheet metal is durable. 12 years old and only 1 ding noticed. The interior is very comfy and yet durable. The factory radio/tape deck sound worse than a clock radio. However, it is very easy to swap out for an aftermarket head unit. 99,000 miles and I have only had an alternator, wiper motor, and the A/C condenser go out. The engine easily pulls my 4,000 lb race car and trailer. The newer vortec offers 50 more horsepower and better fuel economy so if you can afford go for a 1996 or newer. The 4L60E transmission get a bad rap but with reg fluid and filter change is strong.
