2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
This is the most powerful truck I've ever owned! Chassis is also the stiffest as well. Much better than my '03 F150 which I got rid of after 7 months for the '01 Chev. I've had problems with the A/C, got those fixed, also the annoying cold start knock, quiets down after warming up (recommend full-synthetic oil to quiet down). Tie rods and steering system needed fixing at 70,000 miles (very expensive without warranty).
Gobbs of power! Excellent fuel economy (approx. 18 mpg) Great handling and ride!
Brakes, cold start knock, better components for steering and front end! Idles to low around 400 rpms increase to 650 for smoothe idle.
