Good truck. It's been dependable as can be for it being almost 17 years old. But, compared to other vehicles of different brands, the metal used for the body was very poor, the bed panel rusted out and now theres a gaping hole, the bottom of the doors have rusted, as has the left door jams. I love the truck, but I still think chevy could have done better even with the new S10's, I mean, come on, it has only .3 liters less than Fords 4.6 V8, and yet only around 200 horses? I love my truck, enough said..
Tourqe surprises even the most seasoned and overly confident drivers of newer Nissans, Dodges, Fords, and a few others.
Body sheet metal could have been better quality. Fuel economy matches that of larger pick-ups. More horses for keeping up with traffic at highway speeds. Interior could have used better materials.
I've dusted almost every Chevy, Dodge, and Ford full size pickup you can imagine in this truck, and I've taken this thing through places most trucks would shiver to even think about going through, and it held up. The truck was stolen and beat to death but it still ran for about a month after we got it back. Great truck for anyone that wants a great running truck with good power, good hauling, great offroading, and dependability offerings. If it werent for it being a Chevy i probably would tell anyone looking for a nice truck to get one of these. The seats for a short cab are a little awkward though for someone averaging a height taller then 5'8 or so
Big V6, meaty tires, great transfercase gearing, reliability, workability, and easy to find parts for
More cab space would be nice, and maybe a stiffer suspension for offroad enthusists such as myself

252,000 and counting. It's never left
me stranded. The bed holds a 4wheeler
with room to spare. Couldn't even get
the gate closed on my old tacoma.
MPG's are down to 21 and power is down
also compared to when I got it at
200k. But as long as it runs I will
Fun to drive, bed holds alot, map
lights under the rearview, good mpgs,
good acceleration, reliable, takes alot
of abuse, chicks dig it
Body rust, blows quite a few bulbs,
needs a locking diff for help with
