Heavy chevy

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

This vehicle tows like nothing I have ever owned. Mileage is well within expectations. Both on and off road performance is very good but suspension is very stiff when not loaded. The numerous standard features are greatly appreciated. Am having problem keeping front wheel alignment with 4 W/D system but not excessive.




Chevy tough

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

Great truck motor need a little wakeing up but feels good. Front end should have heavy duty steering stabilizer on it. But all in all the best truck on the market. Big strong looks good and chevy tough.
