1996 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 Silverado 2dr Extended Cab SB
Terrible vehicle. So far replaced manifold gasket, water pump,starter X2, A/C compressor, and clutch because the slave cylinder leaked. I have spent more on parts since purchase than I did over the 22 years I drove the last vehicle. For some strange reason GM did not cover the rails on the bed with the bed-liner - I wonder how much they saved doing that?
Seats, A/C (when it works!), convenience of having a truck
Use a Toyota body, a Toyota engine, a Toyota transmission, and a Toyota clutch - then everything will be fine.
