2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
This is a solid truck. I see nothing wrong to complain about. When I shopped I looked at the Ford150 and Dodge Ram. The F150 has more options but it was $3000 more. F150 was also more refined. If you can afford it the F150 is a better buy if you want the most refined truck with the most options/features. The Dodge Ram was $1000 cheaper but much less refined. The Ram had the exact same interior (plastic) and clothe as my 98 Dodge Neon which is very very cheap. For the money the Silverado is by far the best buy using value as the measure.
The interior design of the seats is better than the Ford. 3 Kids and 1 wife have yet to do any damage to the vehicle. Very rugged.
