Its Very Reliable Can Go Most Anywhere And Its Made Of American Steel — this is a great truck only minor things needed to make it a show car. its easy to repair and there is a massive amount of room under the hood for a bigge engine its bed is perfect for bulky items and its mine

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

A Car That Really Can Do All Of Both Americas! — This GMC Suburban / Sierra classic 1500 make:1986, has made it from Deadhorse, Alaska to Ushuaia, Argentina - i.e. all of the Panamericana. Shown in front of Torres del Paine. After 25 years it has 350 000 miles+ and hopefully will be running for another 50 years or so in Uruguay...

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Big cab.  Nice cap on the bed and bedliner - great for hauling stuff.

Cons

Bought it up north so no AC - that was bad when we moved south.

My First Vehicle! — Bought it used, but it was my first!!! Handled well - was a three speed manual. Sometimes it would be stubborn about going into reverse but just has to ease up on the clutch a bit and she gave in.

Pros

Big, and bad looking truck.

Cons

Crappy mpg's, rust, and it rode like a lumber truck.

-- — This truck was a play toy that I owned for a short period of time. It had six inches of lift and 35" tires. It has exhaust pipes that came straight up through the box. It was rather obnoxious, and got really crappy gas mileage. But it was still awesome to drive!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
