1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2dr Regular Cab SB


I have owned this truck since new and thoroughly regret buying the first year of a new model. Idk if my truck was built on a Friday or what, but it has been trouble laden since new. Fuel pump, ABS module, steering column shaft(never completely cured the rattling tho), seat belts, fuel pressure regulator, all during the factory warranty period. And since the warranty expired, multiple sets of brakes, spider gears in rear diff, no less than six sets of u-joints, transfer case flew apart internally(nobody had ever heard of that problem with this model of course). On the positive side it rides and handles like a car gets decent mileage and literally turns on a dime. Should have waited a few yrs

Best Features

Ride, Styling, V-8 engine is too good for the truck they put it in. 5spd tranny with V-8 and 4wd makes for a good tow rig for a small boat. Turns almost too sharp! Ease of maintenance and repair(good cuz ur gana be working on it a lot)

Worst Features

Quality of driveline assembly. I am convinced that the driveshaft and pinion angles have been the case of my driveline headaches since day 1. Paint and primer quality leaves much to be desired
