I love my 94 GMC Sierra. I often think about buying a new truck but I can't part with this truck. It has a straight bench seat with a 5 speed manual trans on the floor, tons of power and runs great after 250, 000 miles. I've decided to spend the money on restoring it and am getting the speakers replaced next week and then a paint job. When the time comes to rebuild or replace the engine does anyone out there have any recommendations on the difference between a Jasper engine, Chevy crate replacement or just a major rebuild? I would greatly appreciate any advise on restoration issues.

I bought this truck when my old when died. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it, even more when I heard it! To date this truck has had only one major problem and that was the factory rear end locking up and breaking the ring gear and the axle passing me on the highway. This truck has done everything I've ever asked of a truck and it just keeps going. It's beautiful, and the 350 V8 is amazing and allows easy modification. Overall the best vehicle I have ever owned!!
Safety is enhanced with the side door guard beams designed to minimize intrusion into the passenger compartment during a side impact. A center high-mounted brake light is also added to enhance safety.
An optional 6.5-liter turbodiesel is offered as an option; the 5.0- and 5.7-liter engines receive some new hardware, intended to improve reliability and durability.
Rust corrosion protection is improved while interior noise vibration and harshness is reduced. Rounding out the list of significant improvements are the addition of an "easy entry" feature to the front passenger seat on extended cab body styles to ease entry into the rear seating positions and the revision of the exterior front end styling.
