1998 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series C3500 Silverado 4dr Crew Cab LB
Bought this truck used with 97,000 miles. Initially bougt a single rear wheel 3500 with 350/auto. Truck was OK, but I really wanted a dually. Went back to same dealership looking to trade and found this crew cab dually with 454/5 spd. What an awesome truck! It has the Western Hauler package which for this truck is basically badging, nice wood console and a 90gal bed mounted gas tank. We use it to pull a 5th wheel camper and it doesn't even know it's there. Maybe not the towing torque of a diesel but for my needs its great and you can't beat the sound of a big block through Flowmasters. My son thinks it's cool to leave four black marks! Do that with a diesel!
Roomy interior, reliability, easy to work on, has good ride for a big truck that improves with a load.
Bet you think I'm gonna say gas mileage. What would you expect, but it's as good or better than my dad's 8 liter 2500HD.
