1998 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series K1500 Cheyenne 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

Second owner of this truck when I bought it in 1999. At 265000 miles, it is incredibly reliable. Recent snowstorms required me to pull much newer 2wds out of snowbanks and a couple of Tahoes. I expect to get 300K miles out of the V-6 and will get a new VORTEC at that time. Original tranny, electrics, 4wd, transfer case, and air conditioning. Major parts changed are clutch, fuel pump, and water pump. Normal maintenance otherwise; unbelievable. Getting ready to recover driver's seat and tow my boat this summer. GREAT Truck!!


Best Features

Reliability, easy to work on, availability of parts. V-6 with manual tranny is a workhorse. 4wd is great.


Worst Features

Too late for this model.

Review

Had a few nuisance reliability problems early on (water pump, alternator, radio), but once I had these components replaced with quality replacements I have had few problems. No major repair bills other than the fuel pump (which was probably due to my neglect in changing the fuel filter according the repair shop. Currently the truck has over 200,000 miles and shows no sign of letting up.


Best Features

I believe the 98 has the external styling that will last the test of time. Interior is not too shabby either.


Worst Features

Rear Drum brakes are a little mushy.

Review

This truck is amazing, The only major maintenance that has been done in the 190000 miles it has on it are a replaced transmission due to hot rodding the truck with a superchips tuner and two power steering pumps. The guy who owned it before took pretty good care of it except when he got the superchips tuner and decided to hot rod. I bought it with about 20,000 on the new trany and it;s been a great vehicle for me. I did hot rod it a little bit with the tuner when I first got it. The truck performs as good at 120 as it does at 80. Never had an engine problems and plan on driving it until it dies the n replacing the engine and driving it more.


Best Features

5.7l V8, Tow package, Third Door, Interior Lighting, Sound System, Armrests on chairs.


Worst Features

Definitely the cup holder in front of the heater vent other than that the features for the year are amazing.

Review

I have had this truck for almost 10 years and afraid soon I will have to get another. I am hoping to go to 250,000 before that happens. Purchased it with 65,000 and never had any transmission problems with every other year trans flushes. I work out of this truck and it is put to the Test daily. The Fuel Pump has went out around 100,000 miles this is common. cost $600.00 replaced water pump about same time but that is it nothing else. 10 years and only $800 in repairs. If Chevy made truck like this still they would not be in trouble today.


Best Features

I have always liked the Look. The Third door and Front seats feel nice


Worst Features

Cup Holder in front of a heat vent great for coffee but not good for anything with Ice. Fuel Pump repairs was costly

Review

I got this truck in on a trade for my old Suburban. I have always loved the style of these trucks and the way the look with a lift kit and the way they sound with an exhaust. I put around 3900 miles on this truck every week i also haul wood and scrap steel the abuse this truck can handle is amazing. I keep the exterior of this truck looking clean and neat. with the right care I expect to run this truck untill it dies. NEVER been stuck in the snow and i have 235-85-16 on the truck with aggressive tread. this Truck is the second one of this style that i have owned the first was a 1993 and i would not change either for the world


Best Features

5.7 Liter vortec motor 4x4 plenty of room on the inside, plenty of power under the hood and the styling is great


Worst Features

cup holders and whats with the door on top of my arm rest it hurts my arm :(
