1992 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 2dr Regular Cab LB


I have the 4.3L V6 with a 4L60
automatic. The engine has good torque
however, it is not especially
powerful. Conservative driving
typically yields 18-21 mpg on the

Towing a maximum load of 7,000 lbs the
truck performed pretty well. However,
this probably exceeds the tow rating
of the 1/2 ton so for heavy towing I
would highly recommend an auxiliary
trans cooler and a trans temperature

The long bed provides excellent cargo
capacity. I have hauled up to 3
motocross bikes and all required tools
and gear.

Overall this truck has served very
well with no major maintenance
required so far.

Best Features

Recently added 18" wheels with 245/55/18 BFGs which greatly improved handling. Bullet proof Engine. Engines and transmissions interchange with most GM trucks 1988-1998 so upgrading and repair costs are relativley cheap.

Worst Features

Could use more power from the 4.3 (later Vortecs have 200 hp v. 160 hp). Interior is a little cheap but has worn fairly well. The seat foam is not good and wears down quickly.
