2000 chevy 3500 crew

Vehicle: 2000 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series C3500 4dr Crew Cab LB

Bought this truck from an auction - former Forestry Service Truck - in 2011 with only 55,000 miles. This is the last year for the best Chevy body style. Overall the truck is a work horse. It runs and drives great. Some parking lots aren't designed well to accommodate a crew cab long bed. I've had some minor issues with electrical items (fuel, tach, RPM gauges) working intermittently. Folks that complain about fuel mileage..... it's a one ton crew cab long bed with a vorteq 350. Were you expecting anything over 12???

Tough truck

Vehicle: 2000 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series C3500 2dr Regular Cab LB

I purchased this truck back in 2002. It is a 454/5 Spd regular cab 2WD which are extremely difficult to find. I have more fun hauling my cars around due to the fact that I get just as many compliments about the truck as well as the cars. Very durable and very fortunate to have one. Not the best for long travel with the family. No room to stretch. I enjoy it mainly for me and one other rider. Gas mileage proportional to load it handles.




Gas hog!

Vehicle: 2000 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series K3500 LS 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB

We have the one tonner. Hauled 4 horses cross country before we bought it used. We haul a 32 ft 5th wheel and snowmobiles. It's a true "workhorse" Window motor to passenger side don't work from driver's side, but works from passenger side. Other problem...fuel hog! Better pay attention to the fuel gauge, blink and it's gone.




Great hauler and daily driver

Vehicle: 2000 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series K3500 LS 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB

This truck is a great vehicle. I have made a few mods to the suspension and motor(7.4L) and it has responded well. I pull a 6000lb boat and carry a 3500lb slide-in camper. We also haul a gooseneck with 8 Black Angus cows. The truck handles the load quite well and it is a very comfortable vehicle to drive on long trips. I get 10/12+mpg empty and a solid 10 loaded, which is much better than the 6/8 I got with my previous truck. I think the brakes feel weak too, but they have never failed to stop me. Overall I think this truck is a great value. I love driving around town and to work as much as I've enjoyed driving it all over the country.

As of now I have no complaints other than gas consumption, but I did not buy this truck for that reason. Minor electrical problems have occured with the window motors.
