BEWARE LH CAB CORNER ROT 1999 EXT CAB !!
By dave on
1999 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series K1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
I've had 79, 89,and now1999 chevy trucks. This is my first 4x4 and ext cab model.This 1999 broke my heart. I bought the truck used with 87000 miles. As all my trucks it runs great with plenty of power. At about 100,000 miles the big surprise! While washing the left side cab corner and rocker, paint bubbled up everywhere and now at 117000 miles I've got a hole about 1.5 x6 inches long and growing! Local dealer had same year truck and yes it was just starting, to confirm I was not the only one! This problem is only on 3 door, new style 1999 LH(drivers side) cab corners! 2000 went to 4drs, no problems!! Buy 98 on down or 2000 on up! Rust stinks!
Power, looks, drivetrain realiability. Good resale value for 4x4 models
Thicker sheet metal! Interior seems noisy ,double door never seems solid when shut. Air leaks due to poor fit. Fuel pump and sending unit went bad at 115,000.
