I bought this truck as a toy for my birthday. It was a used truck that can run on gas or lpg! I paid $3800! Great buy! This truck is amazing. It has 163,000 miles and can still do a 45 sec power brake. Easily do a burn out, tow anything and everything, and does it all with ease! I love this truck. It was one of the best purchases I have ever made.

I bought the truck my senior year of high school and have liked it ever since. I added a high-flow air filter and a new exhaut. It now gets about 20 MPG. I hope to have a son one day that I can give this truck to.

driver door ajar, brake cylinder fails, alternator fails, etc., etc., and the "extended cab" with plumb seatbacks and about 8 inches of legroom is comfortable only for those under age 6.




Best vehicle ever owned out

A 6 cyl, 5-speed. Must of been a special order as salesfolks there had never seen 5-speed in this when I went back last year looking around same dealer! Dealer reputation is horrible- will buy next one somewhere else. Wish I could find a 2002 or 2003 in 5- speed.Changed plugs at 110,000 along with fuel filter for first time(and it was clean).

I have really enjoyed my 98 GMC pickup..I drive it hard and it performs well..have tinkered with it a little to boost performance and it made a world of difference...open up the exhaust and air intakes and the truck responds very well..
