1998 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series K1500 Silverado 2dr Extended Cab 4WD LB


Review

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.


Best Features

The 350 vortec is awesome.


Worst Features

not a fan a push button transfer case. get a little wind noise but fixed it with all weather tape.

Review

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!

1998 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 Work Truck 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

Purchased this truck to keep miles off my 07 hd and for better mpg.
It gets 23 to 25 on the highway at 70.
average 16.5 to 18.5 close to home w many trips on the farm has a 95 gallon fuel tank w tool book in the back, loaded with 700 to 1300 lbs of tools and fuel in bed at all times.
Has 125000 miles had to have the lock up sensor and the valve body bored out to fix a hard shift problem cost $250 to have fixed.
Overall its a pretty good truck decent mpg and the v6 pulls it down the road well w out much shifting back and forth.
For a decent work truck i can't complain about this truck, it does what it was purchased for well.

Review

I like this truck a whole lot, the 5.7 liter Vortec engine gives plenty of power, the 4L60E Automatic transmission works flawlessly, mine has the push button selector for the 4x4...I'm not to fond of that, but it does work okay. My truck has leather interior, which I like;)Ice cold A/C, good heater, the truck handles like a performance sedan, and handles the heave loads and towing like a real truck should. What more can I say? It is a good truck! Very dependable, I would recommend it to anyone!


Best Features

Power windows, cruse, tilt, A/C, ABS, Z-71 package is nice, 5.7 Vortec is awesome, All good stuff!


Worst Features

Better drink holders would be nice.

Review

Cheap seats, cheap soft foam compound, you sink in seat. Flasher button is temperamental. Stop clunk noise. Cheap thin chrome front bumper isn't good for anything except show. A/c system would not stay charged. Cheap plastic outer distributor components, when replacing distributor the treads stripped out. Wind noise around door. No drain plug on differential, means you have to take diff cover off to change gear oil.


Best Features

Lots of power for 4.3 liter. plenty of room in engine compartment. hold the road good, very stable


Worst Features

Quit using cheap foam compound in seats. use actual real world testing on vehicles prior to implementing on production models. Put a drain plug on differential so oil can be changed easily dummy. Quit using paper thin material for bumpers boneheads.
