Good truck. It's been dependable as can be for it being almost 17 years old. But, compared to other vehicles of different brands, the metal used for the body was very poor, the bed panel rusted out and now theres a gaping hole, the bottom of the doors have rusted, as has the left door jams. I love the truck, but I still think chevy could have done better even with the new S10's, I mean, come on, it has only .3 liters less than Fords 4.6 V8, and yet only around 200 horses? I love my truck, enough said..

I've dusted almost every Chevy, Dodge, and Ford full size pickup you can imagine in this truck, and I've taken this thing through places most trucks would shiver to even think about going through, and it held up. The truck was stolen and beat to death but it still ran for about a month after we got it back. Great truck for anyone that wants a great running truck with good power, good hauling, great offroading, and dependability offerings. If it werent for it being a Chevy i probably would tell anyone looking for a nice truck to get one of these. The seats for a short cab are a little awkward though for someone averaging a height taller then 5'8 or so

so far this has been a great truck.only
had to replace one thing and that was
the fan belt.truck was specially order
when new has all the options on it
including a digital instrument panal
and the optional 4.3l v-6 and 4 speed
automatic. truck has all the power i
will need in fact it has quicker 0-
60mph runs than the newest s10 pickups.
my truck can hit 0-60 in 9.5 seconds
versus 9.7 for a s10 vortec 4.3 kinda
wierd huh.and it can also make quick
work of a 4.6 expedition and a 92 ford
explorer 4.0 trust me ive raced.

252,000 and counting. It's never left
me stranded. The bed holds a 4wheeler
with room to spare. Couldn't even get
the gate closed on my old tacoma.
MPG's are down to 21 and power is down
also compared to when I got it at
200k. But as long as it runs I will

I owned this vehicle for almost 10 years
and put on about 180,000 miles during
that time. The truck left me on the
side of the road only twice in that
time. and then only for easily fixed
items (once was the water pump, and the
other the alternator). Considering the
time and mileage put into her the yearly
maintenance cost was minimal because
almost nothing ever broke.
Exterior facelift that includes a new grille, fresh trim and restyled wheels debuted early in 1990. Four-wheel-drive models get the 4.3-liter V6 as standard equipment. Durango trim is dropped. Midyear, the base four-cylinder powerplant gets more horsepower.
