This was, and still is my first vehicle. 291,000. Replaced rear end, alt, fuel pump 2x, both fuel injectors, 2 electric ignition components, ig switch, & will either rebuild or replace trans for the second time. I bought it with the bed cap (leer). I can say if I have to give up my truck for any reason, I wont be happy. She's served me for 4 years and well over 100,000. Bought used. The paint on the roof is peeling, working on it isnt always fun, rather drive, but I wont trade it for the world. Handles well. Only got stuck once. Being a small guy, I can work in the engine compartment. Smoother & quieter ride than 01 trailblazer and 97 c15 5.0 silverado sb
