Review

Purchased this truck with 103xxx miles miles in Nov 2011 for $1600, it now has 124xxx. It ran great except for the tranny, it would jerk forward when shifting from 1st to 2nd and shift late from 2nd to 3rd. However, I bought it knowing full well of the tranny problems, wasnt that bad. The truck ran excellent for the first 4k-5k miles, then it left me stranded due to a bad ignition coil. 2k miles later truck wouldnt start due to a bad fuel pump. But its to be expected from a 20+ year old vehicle. Very weak rear suspension. Ive had to change all of the following parts:


Best Features

Ignition coil Map sensor- EGR valve- IAC valve Cluster Radiator Fuel pump Idler arm Pitman arms Upper coolant hose 2 x thermostats Intake manifold gasket Master cylinder 4 rear shock absorbers Exhaust flange gasket Water pump 3 rear shocks leaf springs muffler 2x Ive spent a total of 4 grand in repairs and parts. I think today is the day I cut my loses. The truck is currently in the shop for a new water pump. Yesterday I changed the intake manifold gasket and radiator. I feel bad because I really like it, its my first truck. Favorite features are: very strong engine, body style 5 stars, interior space; seats 3 comfortably.


Worst Features

I have nothing against GM/Chevy. I think they have manufactured a great product. I think the truck is pretty reliable. A reason for all the break downs could very well be due to its age. I also used the truck as my scrap truck; I always overloaded. She works all day non stop. I might upgrade to a heavy duty 2500 or a 5.4 f250 super duty. I've heard good things about those trucks. I'd definitely recommend this truck to anyone who is looking a for a daily driver or for light duty use only.

Review

This was my first truck at age 16 I'm 23 now. Its got 290,000 miles on it all original. It still runs like it did when my dad owned it and i have abused this truck still it never lets me down. I give it an oil change every 3000 miles and thats all i spend on it. Never had a major problem with it. I guess im lucky. I'm stationed in Kansas and have driven it back and forth to Idaho at least 4 or 5 times now 1400 miles one way


Best Features

It is the most dependable truck on the road. and i like the older body style better than the new.


Worst Features

I don't really have any improvements for this truck.

Review

Third owner, (bought at 145K) for only $1,200 bucks, book value at time of purchase was $6K. Best truck to ever leave the assembly line. Has the 5.7L TBI 350 and 4L60E O/D Trans. Has Advantage Enterprise Conversion on it including wood (real oak) trim around doors and instrument panel, has mood lighting up top, Goshen leather seats, Z71 Pkg I would not get rid of this truck for anything. Have put around $1,500 into it but it was all normal Wear'N'Tear items that give after age and mileage. I'm still $3,300 under what it was worth. I've put on an Airaid TBI spacer and a Hypertech Street Runner chip for a little more grunt. Will definately put in a GM Goodwrench Crate Motor when the time comes


Best Features

"Insta-Trac" Shift-On-The-Fly 4WD allowing you to shift to 4-High at ANY speed.


Worst Features

Because it has the short bed and it has the Z71 Off Road Pkg., it is a very very stiff bumpy ride over bumps, not bad on the flats though.

Review

Third owner (bought at 72k). Always been reliable. 145k, replaced most of the basics, alternator, fuel pump starter, water pump. Clutch made it to 109k, even with towing and hauling. ECU has failed twice, Im told that's to be expected with this model. For a half ton, there is not one on the market today that can haul like this. I'm sad the NE rust is finally setting in, because this truck has been solid since day one. Easy to work on, V6 is very small under the hood, five speed is adequate, but ratios are spread pretty far apart from 2-3. Looking forward to another 100k.


Best Features

The bowtie, this is what Chevy should strive for. A simple dependable, tough truck, no real frills, just a built to last, turn the key and go, day after day, year after year.


Worst Features

Too late for any really, but some more pull from the 4.3 V6 would have been nice, and a better five speed too.
