2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
This is my 3rd Chevrolet truck, and the best by far. Previous were an 89 that I drove to 125K miles, then a 1996 to 165K miles, and finally this one. Could not be more pleased with the comfort, performance, and convenience. Plus, I am seeing 18 to 19 mpg if I keep my speed around 70 on the highways.
4 doors is so much nicer than extended cabs. Also the ride and build quality is far beyond the 1996 or 1989 that I had. And the prices have not gone up significantly.
I wish you could get a full size bed on a 1500 without going to the HD or the 2500. Also would like a few more storage bins in the back seat.
