This truck has been in our family its
whole life and is still going strong
at 180,000 miles. It used to be much
better on gas mileage, but it doesn't
owe us anything anymore. The 4.3 V6
still has plenty of power. She went
through a salt water flood up to her
floorboards 5 years ago, and aside
from body rust hasn't shown any signs
of giving up. I hope my next pickup
gives me the reliability of 'ol Red'.
Powerful V6 engine, long bed has been
useful. Reliability, Reliability,
I also had paint erosion around
120,000 miles. The grey primer has
appeared on the roof and side of the
cab. Even during its early days,
waxing seemed to shed much more red
color than it should have.
