2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)
I bought this truck because I liked
the way it looked over the half-ton.
I am completely satisfied by it so
far. The performance is unbelieveable
a true strong running truck. My truck
has the 6.0L in it more than enough
power. But I have added dual exhaust
and plan on an intake system in the
near future. Still it has more power
than other pickups when it was stock.
I have had no mechanical problems
yet. Just a little rattle under the
dash. I highly recomend this truck.
I like the power of the 6.0L engine
and the limited slip diff. The truck
also rides smoothe for a heavey duty
3/4 ton. The front clip looks good.
The 4.10 gears are real stump pulling
The tires that are on the truck are
small 245/75/16. They should be
taller, the tires & wheels look like
dounuts. I am going to install
285/75/16 tires on new 16x8 wheels.
And the truck is kinda higher priced
higher than others.
At 10k miles my truck started
knocking. Now at 25k it knocks all the
time. Complained to dealer and GM,
they extended engine warranty to 5
years/100k miles. What good is a truck
that cost $30k that I have to get rid
of in 5 years if it doesn't blow
before hand? This is from a 40 year GM
loyalist and shareholder.
Search "piston slap" on the internet
for all the sorry details.
