1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
I've owned 2 Ford's and now a Chevy. The Silverado exceeded my expectations and forced me to fall in love with the brand. Boat load of power, great exhaust sound (duals), and nice styling. No problems except a bad radiator seal at 50,000 mi but warrantied. No recalls either, unlike the typical Ford 3-4 serious defects per model.
Favorite aspect is definitely the power of the newly designed engine. I stop light race anyone who is foolish enough to assume a pickup is slow. Other pickups, SUV's, sedans, and even a Mustang have fallen prey to my 95% stock Silverado.
Only quarry with the Silverado designers is that the added the 3rd door, but weren't smart enough to add the fourth. The truck is symmetric so what was holding them back? Probably just a marketing tool to make guys who love their truck buy a new one with the 4th door.
