1997 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 SL 2dr Extended Cab LB


I bought this truck in 97 new off the lot. I replaced the tranmission twice, water pump, radiator, wiper motor, power steering pump twice, and the AC went out at 155000 miles. I loved this truck and would love to keep and fix it up. It has 223,000 on the small v-8 motor but needed a better mileage with fuel @ $3.50 a gallon. Everyone who rode with me thought it was such a nice truck. My lil kids love to ride with me and the fact that I could turn off the airbags, made them extremely happy.

Best Features

The seat and overall reliability, although after 150,000 miles it did have probelms. It was great to ride and easy to drive. The stero was great and sounded wonderful. Also,

Worst Features

The major thing I would fix is the transmission and door panels and the door locks. The plastic door locks and door handles tend to break easily.
