2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab Z71 4WD LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


XM Radio with Bose speaker package is very nice. When switching between FM and XM you wonder how you ever lived without it. No annoying FM morning DJ's and no annoying commercials. Tinting rearview mirror is great. 4x4 provides great traction. Snow, mud, uphill. Bravo for someone finally putting a rear defroster on a truck. Best Fog Lights ever! Provides great lighting to the sides of the truck allowing you to see the sides of the road for any dangers (pedestrians, deer, etc). Also greatly increases the brightness in front of you without blinding oncoming traffic.

Best Features

Off-Road package of course. Off road suspension is very well tuned. It turns an off-road drive from a bump your head against the ceiling rattle your brains loose to a pleasent side to side sway that allows you to maintain your sense of thought.

Worst Features

Turning radius...Quadrasteer solves this. Although I'm lucky and the seat supports me just right, lumbar support adjustment would be nice for those who don't mate perfectly with the seat. Volume control is too close to the column shifter...steering wheel controls solves this.
