2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
These trucks have a lot of great features for a 1/2 ton series truck. I used to be a Ford guy but these HD trucks are just a great all around package as far as styling. And as an engine rebuilder the 6.0L engine is by far the best in its class. There are more appealing trucks out there, but if you are looking for a bulletproof workhorse look no farther then the 1500HD!
I really like the 6.0L V8. All around power and the transmission with the "tow/haul" mode never skips a beat!
The only problem I have ever encountered is the terrible radio. If you use the heat a lot the CD player stops working and sometimes AM/FM too.
