1993 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 Cheyenne 2dr Regular Cab LB
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.
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.
Too late for any really, but some more pull from the 4.3 V6 would have been nice, and a better five speed too.
