1999 GMC Sierra 1500 SL 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB
Purchased this truck new in 1999. It now has 205,000 miles. Has been a great, reliable truck. Great tire mileage, got 100000 miles out of the factory installed tires (Generals). Still on the third set of tires. Transmission got hot and had to be rebuilt at 130000, put a trans cooler on to fix that problem. Had a bad lifter at 75000 but a new set is still working fine. No other major problems. Still looks good, drives great. Only wish it got better gas mileage, 17 to 20 mpg is it with the V-6.
Exterior looks, Red Step Side. Chrome wheels. Great ride for a short wheelbase truck. Interior fabrics and carpet still look new, have held up well.
Better gas mileage, especially for a V- 6. Put a trans cooler on as standard equipment. Better stereo speakers.
