1996 GMC Sierra 1500 K1500 SLE 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I have owned quite a few trucks just
like this one. They are tough trucks. I
have been impressed by the payload
capabilities and towing power. I pour
concrete on the side and this truck
does everything. I can fill the bed
with broken-up concrete and not even
worry about payload. The interior is
nice and comfortable. The extended cab
could be just a bit roomier. Overall
this is a pretty nice truck.

Best Features

The 250 horsepower 5.7 liter Vortec enginge. All the power I need. Push button 4x4. Overall looks

Worst Features

A/C vent placement. The tailgate is junk. I hate the tailgate release handle. Over time the handle breaks and the tailgate won't open. I had to buy a new handle and it was a pain to replace. Every GM truck I have owned has this same problem.
