Love At First Sight — Though this truck has given me quite a few scares and cost me a pretty penny I wouldn't trade it for the world. It is a big old beast and I can see over the top of cars and most other trucks. It IS a gas guzzler but that isn't a problem when you drive 4 blocks to work. Brakes shockingly good for such a heavy machine - and for the most part the engine is strong. I've enjoyed my 4 years and will continue to enjoy many more years with it. Wouldn't recommend it to those that don't like to do small repairs. Worth it to me though!

Fun,fast Silverado — it drinks gas like no tomorrow and you have to run 93 octane for the best performance out of the 5.7 liter 350. but its a reliable vehicle and will not leave you sitting on the side of the road.

The engine and transmission have been excellent!  Couldn't be more pleased!

Cons

No place for the spare tire outside the bed due to trailer hitch installation.

A True Workhorse! — Overall great ride, although on snow and ice it tends to ride a little light. You've got to add some weight for winter driving and high-wind conditions. Compared to a new truck, you can still get parts and work on it yourself!!

Great Truck — It has a long bed I'd rather have a short bed. Great lines and styling. Easy to work on when needed. Truck is in great condition inside and out for it's age.I will keep this truck as long as I can.

Junk — What a piece of crap. Someone beat this thing to death. I sold this and bought an Ipad for the wife. The four wheel drive was not the greatest. The truck had all kinds of oil leaks and the brakes keep sticking

Great Old Truck To Own — Had this truck since I was 15. Very nice first vehicle and just a solid truck. The style of this truck is my favorite, the split headlights and the gauges just have a cool look to them. The seats are typical "ok" comfort but nice and soft even after 24 years. For a truck this old it has had no problems other than a new transmission at 155k. The 5.7l is still the best motor ever and so strong even though its being choked like all 80s cars. All in all is still my favorite vehicle to hop in a cruise around in.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

For A 22 Year Old Car I Got Used Its Great — The 350 in it is a little slow but still has some get up and go. The only problems with it is really that the radios got some problems and the paint has lots of scratches and chips and It gets between 13 and 16 mpg. The styling is great inside and out.

Fast Truck. — Its fast! I carbed the 350 after ignition problems. Lunati 268 cam, roller rockers, hedmen longtubes, holley 750 street avenger, magnum double roller timing chain (ohhh....) Dual flowmaster super 44 mufflers with a cam that cuts up so much i need a 3400k stall converter by BDR. It is just as fun sitting at a red light as it is stepping on it.
