Over 200000 and going strong

1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 2dr Regular Cab LB
I bought this truck used in 2000 with 20,000 miles with the 4.8l and currently have 211,000 miles. Mechanically I have had no problems except for fuel pump 1200 dollars to fix 145,000 miles. And sun shell in transmission breaking at 180,000 miles. Engine still running strong and still getting 18-19 mpg. Not fond of the shaky drive which I had since day one, dealer said there was no problem. Still waiting to do 2nd brake job, great brake life. Not fond of the cheapness of the interior. But I know I can easily get to 300,000 miles. Strong engine.
reliability and great brake life.
Improve the suspension and get rid of the shake problem. Parts are expensive, 800 dollar fuel pump plus labor at dealer. and placement of window and power mirror switch. when you use wipers when windows are down water drips in switches.
