1992 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series C3500 Scottsdale 2dr Extended Cab LB
I bought my truck new, 300,000 miles today. The best truck I have owned. Only replaced ring & pinion (4:10), clutch 2X, brakes 5X, water pump 1X, battery 3X, starter 2X, AC compressior 1X, 1 valve job, 4 sets of tires, compression is still there in all 8 cyl. Burns about a half a quart every 3 weeks. Time to rebuild the entire front end and manual tranny and install a new seat. This truck pulls 12,000 lbs pintle hitch, daily 6 days a week in all kinds of traffic in all kinds of midwest weather and shows only minimal rust. Since Dodge has the Cummins in it and I now want a diesel thats my new truck. The Chevys are just too ugly and cannot match the power of the Dodge powertrain.

Bought new in 1992 this has been a work truck from day one. I have used it for an excavation business and it has been a great truck. It's worked hard but I have taken good care of it. Now has 174000 mi - burns almost no oil between changes(at 4000mi) and compression is close to new specs. If the truck had never been up north and run in the salt, I'm sure I would run it to 300000 miles. I would say the only weak link in the chain is the brake system, which has seemed ok but not great. They have always been touchy in damp weather and the anti- lock system has seemed to be less than inspiring. This truck is still working daily and turning 11-12mpg. I'll buy new Chevy when they look better!

Purchased new as a construction co.
vehicle, I have been the sole owner of
this truck since purchase in '92. I
love the big block power and torque.
After 155000 mi. I still own and use
this truck and can't bring myself to
replace it with a new version of
pickup as I dont like the new ones as
well. Still burns almost no oil
between oil changes.
Power, better milage than comparable
fords of same vintage. Good styling.
It always had a tendency to surge at
low speeds (5 speed standard). Brakes
have always been very touchy during
wet weather. ABS system lacks "feel".
