1999 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series C3500 4dr Crew Cab LB
Used primarily for towing my KZ-RV Frontier 2505, purchased at a reduced price due to rear dually locking up on turns. First owner advised me to change fluids which did not help. GMPP warranty found the problem in the PIG Head and replaced no problems in the past 50 thousand miles. Excellent tow vehicle and will replace with another Silverado in the future.
454 engine have had no problem towing anything I choose to tow.
Better braking system seems like the brakes do not last as long as they should.

If you are looking for fuel economy,
this may not be your vehicle. Most of
my trips are less that 5 miles and MPG
range from 9-11 MPG. We have pulled a
fifth-wheel trailer with 10,000# of
dryywall on it. No problem! I have
replaced and battery and alternator.
Hood release also broke on inside (the
plastic pull). I as very glad that the
truck has been as dependable as it has
been as the dealership service sucked!
I think that they did manage to get the
power door locks and security alarm
installed by a vender but they never
fixed the windshield leak or finished
preping the vehicle for delivery!
Love the 454 and automatic
transmission. Very comfortable for
trips. Highway millage ran over 13 mpg
and that was driving 70-90 mph.
Michellin replacement tire rode much
better than original Generals.
