I bought this truck last spring because I was in a pinch and had to act fast. It has turned out to be the best vehicle I have ever owned. I use it as a daily driver, and I pull a 17' fiberglass bass boat with it frequently. The truck gets the job done, and looks great. I put a water pump in it this winter, and had some minor problems with the ignition wiring, but nothing major has gone wrong even though there are 74,000 rough miles on this truck.
I lvoe the 4.3L Vortec V6. Great torque and plenty of power to pull my boat. I like how the truck looks too.
The seats are a little stiff, and the jumpseat in the cab is a joke. I would rather have a storage bin back there, becasue that's what I use the space for anyway. Also, an option package should come with a bed cover and bed lining. I bought both post-purchase.
