Great Replacement For The Comanche. Would Get Another. — Good performance, engine mileage is getting up there. The handling is great for a full size truck (almost as good as my comanche was ;) ). Typical GM quality, awesome. Appearance would be great if the paint was not faded... the step side makes it pretty cool though. Interior has plenty of space! Decent gas mileage but good for maintenance. Fun truck to drive but again... not compared to my comanche. With it was a manual, but it has more power so its a compromise.

I Love It — It's a beast, what can I say. Any thing you throw at it, it can handle. I have owned this truck for almost three years and it has never stranded me. It might not have all the fancy features of modern cars but the Good ole GMC is a rough and tough truck ready to work

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Good Winter Beater — it takes forever to pick up a decent speed, brakes are good since i just replaced them, handles not bad for what it is its needed alot of repairs over the years, new motor, brakes, interior had to be re-done, tires, exhaust, something squeaks dont know what it is though and something also rattles also dont know what interior is nice and basic easy to find controls, exterior wise looks like a regular old school truck gas isnt bad only costs about 60 bucks to fill from empty lasts at least 2 weeks or more, regular maintanence done oil changes tranny fluid etc not fun to drive at all just use it as a winter beater

Pros

Super fun in dirt, mud and snow.  

Cons

10 mpg, horrible interior quality and electronics.  Its like GM didn't even try with the interior.

My Rust Bucket 4wd Truck — My $700 beater, redneck truck. Has 33" (actually 285/70/16) BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A tires. I use it to tow my friends and my cars, tear up muddy fields and act a fool in snow. When it finally is too rusty to even drive (which will probably be soon) I'll crash it into a tree or something destructive and then take the small block V8 out and play with it.
