Now that there's room in the driveway I wanted a pickup truck. Mine is actually a '99, but looks like '98 with an engine of that year, a 5.0 V8 with an automatic transmission. Wanted a manual, but they're almost impossible to find with 4WD. I bought it in April 2013 with 156K on it. It runs great - the 5.0 V8 is fine for me. It will mostly be used for dump runs and hauling firewood. I'm used to driving a Subaru so gas consumption seems excessive - not a big deal though. I think the '94(?) to '98 design is one of the best. The truck is a pleasure to drive - there's some kind of charm and appeal to it. I'm surprised how well it handles - it doesn't feel ponderous. Visibility is excellent.

I have a 1998 4x4 5.7 v8 extended cab despite the options given on the top of the page.
It's got 68k on it, and I really do beat it up.
Its been from Northern Illinois to Alabama where I go to school and the ride is that of a new tahoe.
I've only had to replace one of the two cat converters, and a fan belt.
Its candy apple red, and man, its a great looking truck. I take it on the dirt roads in South Dakota and it just never fails.

I can't kill it!
It runs and runs and runs!
And it still looks great.
I haven't had a significant repair in several years.
In my last review (2006), I was happy, but more so now.
130,000 miles on the odometer, which would be significantly more had I not had other vehicles I drive to work.
Friends compliment me on its appearance, and I have had offers to buy it.
Bullet Proof Reliability is the slogan that belongs to this truck!
This year's big news is a standard theft-deterrent system, revised color choices and fresh tailgate lettering. The Sport package has been dropped from the option list. Second-generation airbags are standard on models under 8,600 GVWR.
