IMHO these 1500 & 2500 series are killer trucks disguised as SUV's. Cheaper to register & insure than trucks, comfortable, got balls, reliable, good interiors , controls etc. My '97 Yuke w/234K on it ran great until a deer hit and got pushed across the road into trees & rocks. Busted up as it was, I kept it on the road another year & half until insp. ran out. That beast saved my life. Ran good with minimal maint. Got lucky & found a '99 long wheel base Sub. w/223K from private owner w/good documentation. Has all the goodies, 3.73 Posi, HD susp.,towing pckge. HD cooling, xtra battery set up, a/c. all power stuff & cloth buckets w/3'd seat interior, INSIDE spare tire mount, etc, etc. It also had taken a deer hit that wiped out driver's door, windshield, and almost the owner. Size & strength saved him. New w/shield, junkyard door, and back on the road. Drove it home after a quick test drive @ 70-80, ran great except for a bit of front wheel vibe @65-70 which went away around 75-80. Balance ? Big enough to fit 4x8 ply in the back and on the roof rack. Barn doors in back for easy loading. 5.7 (350) American muscle, 4 spd. auto, prev. owner used Castrol H/M oil, same as as the Yuke got, all good. LUV IT!! YES!!
