2005 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLE 4WD LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Review

Highest quality of any GM pickup I've ever owned ('74, '87, '89, '92). Not a rattle/buzz anywhere. HO 5.3L runs better than the 454 in that '74 shortbed 2wd, though I've had the PCM custom tuned and running 4.10 gears. I also changed the OEM alloys with 265/70's for 20x9.5" & 305/50 Avons. Handling astonishingly improved and quieter!

Best Features

Good motor (L33), extended cab with plenty of room for average-sized adults, comfortable/convenient cloth 60/40 bench up front, no more 4wd floor lever.

Worst Features

Premium Bilstein shocks with better damping should be included as in former Z71's, and rack/pinion steering. Need HO 6.0L option for more power. 3.73/4.10 gears should be options on extd cab as on std cabs.
