2005 Chevy Work Truck 5 speed Manual LB

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2dr Regular Cab Work Truck Rwd LB (4.3L 6cyl 5M)
This is the best truck I've ever owned (out of 10 Chevys) V6 with the 5 speed gets 24-25 MPG on the freeway. A few minor things went wrong- all fixed by the dealer. Truck has nearly 70000 miles now- runs like new and looks new. Still running on the original tires and brakes, all still good.
Gas mileage is unbelievable for a full size truck. Ride and interior comfort is great. Still a tight truck at 70k miles.
Put a manual trans in the new ones. The 07 and 08 V6 models with the automatic are gas hogs compared to this model.
