For my use this truck has worked out great. Have all the bells on a Z71. Have 10k on it with no probs. Went from my '96 GMC S-15 with 200k on it. I'm getting 21+ mpg on a mix of hiway/city. Not too bad compared to other makes (and it uses regular not prem. like some of the imports). The Z71 is a little tight and 'jiggly' but it is an off road model, probably should have gone with the z85 suspension. Seats are not too short (i.e., good leg support) and with the leather option you can set it up for max comfort. Plenty of front leg room (I'm 6'1). Good sound system.
Leather seat option, sun roof, looks, mileage.
Plug for my iPod, 5 speed option, smaller turning radius.
