This Is A Great Work Truck. — With over 230,000 miles and still going strong, this GMC Sierra is a typical work truck. The interior has been refurbished, but the exterior has a strong body with minor dents. It does need a new paint job, and some tires. However it a classic truck that may last a long time on the road.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Amazing — This truck is in amazing condition. It is the best vehicle I have owned. It has a 305 engine in it and it is rear wheel drive. It loves to spin out a lot because there is no weight in the back of the truck and it is rear wheel drive. It is a load of fun to drive.

The Best Of The Not So Pretty!! — Bad gearing in Rear differential, would be much better if it had 3.73:1 instead of 3.08:1, but it works pretty well for what it is, and never has let me down yet!

Pros

It's a GMC 4x4 with monster tires and dual exhaust

Cons

The 4x4 doesn't work, and the right exhaust hangs lower than the left, and the headers are loose, AND. . . it's a very smokey truck when you start it, I can't remember what it is that's wrong.

Reliable 4x4 — Well lets see. . . the transfer case doesn't work, therefor no 4x4, the engine needs a lot of work, I am eventually getting new tires, the old ones are in great shape but I want bigger, the exhaust sucks, and yeah. . . that's about it.

Don't Buy A Gm Hybrid Truck Until They Improve It Drastically! By jgreene3tx
