Vehicle: 1998 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 SLT 2dr Extended Cab Stepside SB

My 98 Sierra SLT runs excellent. The truck has 227 thousand miles on it. Let me preferance what what im going to say next. I am talking about my truck and not all GMC Sierra's. So here are the words im using to describe it. It's been a dependable, excellent running,comfortable,stylish truck .The only negative i found was it's difficult to work on Things that the average joe should be able to do are hampered by covers or hidden and that can be annoying. That aside, properly maintained, they will go forever. joe caprio

Vehicle: 1998 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 SL 2dr Extended Cab SB

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.




Good truck

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.




Truly a best buy

Vehicle: 1998 GMC Sierra 1500 K1500 SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

My 1998 GMC Z-71 pickup was absolutely the best vehicle ever. Despite a couple of minor problems such as wiper motor replaced twice, intake manifold cooling hose attachment, right front running/low beam light working intermittently, and the steering wheel peeling after a few months, there were no problems other than normal maintenance. I sold the vehicle at 222,252 miles and it still used no oil. Not even any rattles at that mileage level. Great job!
