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???

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.

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.

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.
