1994 GMC Sierra 1500 K1500 SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

Received this truck from my step dad a few years ago. It had set up in a hot; damp climate for several years. It's been a great truck once all the issues brought on by improper long term storage were corrected. This is a 1994 truck and the V-6 is a little lacking in get up and go but she pulls strong and gets down the road just fine. Did have to change out the radio/cassette player; speakers included. That was a interesting project just seeing how the original system was designed and installed. The only thing currently wrong with the truck is the recirculate vent actuator; it thumps (rather loudly) for 10 to 20 seconds when ever the key is turned on or off. The actuator gear is stripped and keeps trying to open and or shut the damper door which is held closed by spring tension. Eventually the actuator times out. Damper door stays shut and it operates as if in the recirculating/max cool mode. Just too much time and fiddling dropping the interior AC unit to replace the actuator. Other than the noise the AC and Heater system work great.

Review

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.

Review

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!!


Best Features

V8 power, great styling, good creature comforts, just amazing overall!


Worst Features

Fuel mileage could be improved, but coudl be due to oversize tires and free flow exhaust. 4X4 could be upgraded with CV Joints, not U-Joints but that was fixed in later models
