I bought my 2001 in 2006 because I really wanted a stepside.
I found this Z71 4X4 and pulled the trigger.
It had 89,000 on the odometer.
Now it has 140,000.
I've driven it hard and it keeps coming back for more.
One of the first things I added to it was a Flowmaster muffler with chrome tips.
I get a thrill every time I fire it up.

Ive always driven chevy trucks, they always been tanks< I make work and play hard. The 2001 has given me more issues than older models. The first was the fuel pump in the tank, very expensive to fix thru the dealer, 2nd bad knock on cold start up,Power window motor,replaced whole brake system(hard time finding the correct fuel line,didn't match dealer PN,fuel injectors,front end work and just put in a new transmission, I've had a bad vibration which thru process of elimination I think is the driveshaft, by the time Im done I will have a new truck,but I work it hard but not trashing it, for what they cost I expect it to do the work like the older models,I am disappointed in chevy
An available PRO TEC composite truck box and optional traction control are the biggest changes for the Silverado this year. New colors have been added and the OnStar vehicle assistance system debuts as a midyear option.
