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

I have had my truck (brown bear) for over a year and it has been an amazing truck. With oover 200,000 miles under the hood and the most major mechanical problem was replacing the fuel pump. This truck is smooth and reliable. A great buy.
Durability, Looks, and Performance
replacing the factory audio system was difficult and still looks funny
I have owned this truck for just over one year now, and haven't had any problems with it yet. Just put on new tires and dual exhaust. This truck has plenty of power pulling a trailer or anything life throws at you. The only bad thing is that im getting around 11 mpg in town, but that dosent bother me, its a truck after all. I plan to keep it till it dies.
Favorate feature is the sound of it running and accelerating. Would definetly suggest an exhaust for it.
Only things to improve is the radio set up and that's it.
