I owned this truck for 35 months and
never had a mechanical problem, rattle,
or anything...period. It looks sharp
and gets considerable attention from
young folks. However, because the
suspension is lowered 2 inches from the
factory and comes with wide (235) tire
it does ride rough even for a truck.
The 4.3L, 180HP V-6 has a fair amount
of power but it's not a drag racer;
it's more like a boulevard cruiser.
The extended cab is a nice feature with
the 3rd door, but don't expect anybody
to sit back there for very long...just
use it to stow your stuff. This
truck doesn't pretend to be anything
but a minimal factory custom and I
enjoyed it for a few years.
Custom appearance...it will get
attention especially when it's clean.
No maintenance problems but I only put
16,500 miles on it. Sold it for
$14,500 in May 2002...WOW!
Improve the rough ride and give it the
power it looks like it should have.
