2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


I've driven Chev trucks since i was 16 and this truck is the biggest piece of junk i have ever had. The front and rear diff's had to be rebuilt twice 75,000 km between rebuilds. It can't keep the transfer case together for longer then 9 months with out stretching the chain. Both exhaust manifolds split making it horribly loud. The truck has 250,000km and is bagged out when guys with super duties are getting 500,000km out of there truck with no where near the repair bills I've had in half the Km's

Best Features

the only decent thing I've found about the truck is i can get 650km to 100 liters of fuel or in American terms 390 miles to 32 gallons

Worst Features

make the frame more then 3inces off the ground, through the aluminum transfer case in the garbage, get a solid front axle, make a metal front bumper not 50% plastic, get rid of the muffler thats bigger then a fuel tank on a family car
