1999 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD LS 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I love this truck. I hate the gas mileage. But it has a lot of power for pulling trailers. I bought this truck two reasons. One to pull my fifth wheel camper & boat. Second, to go hunting. In North Dakota, you can pull tandem trailers behind your pickup if the first trailer is a fifth wheel with brakes. This truck can pull all day. But be careful in the heat (>90 ) the GMs overheat. I see them on the side of the road. It has not happened to me personally. When pulling tandem trailers I get 6 to 8 mpg. So you really need to watch your fuel gauge, if it worked correctly. Maintenance on this vehicle is oil changes and tires.

Best Features

Push button four wheel drive, hands down. Next, powerful 6.0L engine.

Worst Features

Fuel gauge that indicates the correct amount of fuel in the tank. My 3/4 full position means I have a half tank. Not a good thing when pulling a trailer.
