2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
Get the 5.3L for sure! The six speed is great for 2009. However, adding a cold intake really helped with gear hunting at higher speeds,alltitude and hills. No problems except I had a creaking noise from the undeside since new. Turns out I needed a whole new drive shaft. Have over 8K on it now and dont regret a thing. More room than Japanese trucks espcially in head room department. Never feels underpowered. I did add ICON DYNAMICS coil overs/rear shocks and they make it handle amazingly with no ride loss. Get them, you wont regret it. They leveled out the front too!
engine, simplicity, looks, comfort, lots of aftermarket parts/accessories, getting employee pricing and $3K cash to get out of my Saab lease early...DONE DEAL!
A pillar wide enough to hide a car when entering traffic on three occasions.Cloth interior collects lint/dog hair.Yo USA,make a vehicle w/o door rattles!4WD indicator light should be on dash and not down on knob by my knee(drove freeway in 4 High for 40 mins!)stock headlights only fair.
