Cons

Bad on fuel

Kyle's '88 — The performance is really good for a bare-balls 3/4 ton. It has a powerful engine that is bone stock. Nothing has been done to it. The performance isn't as good as a high performance LS1 but it is good for a stock 350. I can drive it hard but still drive it home nicely at the end of the day. I would like to scrap the cat converter and put in dual straight-pipes. The body squeaks a bit when going over uneven terrain... but what twenty year old body doesn't? It has over 300000 kilometers on the chassis but can still handle some pretty tough trails. Both interior and exterior is all original. Nothing has been done. The paint is chipping a bit... but what GMC doesn't have paint that chips? There is a bit of rust around the wheel-wells and a dent on the bottom left side of the box and a dent along the right rear quarter-panel. The downside of my truck is that it is a pig on gas. It has one inch bigger tires than what it is tuned for, so that has a bit to do with it. It is mechanically sound and just needs the odd part here and there. It is a really good truck to drive. Very reliable and I'm not afraid to hurt it. A very fun truck to drive.

Gmc Sierra Grande 2500 Hd 4x4 — A solid truck needs some work but it is great for work and muddin. Not fast but has a lot of torque. It dosent cost much and is very fun to drive. I have a lot of fun with it.

Lovely Old Truck — I got it from my dad who got it from a buddy for 350$. sadly the fuel pump died but a great truck for 215,000 miles and a hole in the floor board. The 350/3spd + granny gear had balls but the fuel poor old fuel pump/gas tank are crap so now i'm just waiting on the cash to fix it.
