2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 2WD LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I owned a 2001 regular cab silverado,
but it did not have enough room, and it
was under powered with the 6 cyl. I
bought the 2002 extended cab Silverado
with the biggest engine and it gets
better gas mileage than the 6 cyl. The
tires really make a lot of difference.
With good tires, the truck drives
great. With Goodyear tires, the truck
is a safety hazard when it's wet. The
worst thing about the interior is the
drink holder in the middle of the
seat. I would cut it off if I could
find a good aftermarket drink holder to
take its place. The 2001 Chevy has a
better interior design.
The best feature is the battery rundown
protection. The second best feature is
that the radio continues to play (after
turning off the engine) until the door
Fix the drink holder position. Add a
cargo net for under the extended cab
seat. Replace the pocket on the back
of the front seats with a garbage bag.
