I bought my 1998 GMC Sierra new. At 212,000 miles the 305 CI V8 mushroomed a valve, as they were prone to do. I decided to put a more robust 350 CI small block V8 that made a HUGE difference. It has a 5-speed standard transmission with a manual transfer case. I'll never part with it.
My 98 Sierra SLT runs excellent. The truck has 227 thousand miles on it. Let me preferance what what im going to say next. I am talking about my truck and not all GMC Sierra's. So here are the words im using to describe it. It's been a dependable, excellent running,comfortable,stylish truck .The only negative i found was it's difficult to work on Things that the average joe should be able to do are hampered by covers or hidden and that can be annoying. That aside, properly maintained, they will go forever. joe caprio

move the cup holder,it heats your drink up in the winter time right in front of the heater vent but i will give them 50% because it heats my coffee
Bought truck new with 18 miles. This 4.3 5speed has been the best auto I have ever purchased. I have only had 3 sets of tires on truck, still have original motor. Very reliable on both short trips and long hauls. No rust on body that I can find. Best thing I did to truck was to have a spray on bed liner. Would love to own another truck like it some day.
There is no 1 favorite feature, happy with overall truck.
