Rally Car Driving, You Will Win — It is perfect for rally car driving, it is slow to brake but I believe that is due to a lack of maintenance on my part. The interior is fine, comfortable and durable. The exterior is rusty and faded but its held up. Also very cheap to fix, the performance is grand. The only downside is gas, its terrible $75 to fill it up and in about 100 miles you'll need more. I really love my old beat up truck. :)

1993 Chevrolet K1500 — Gets the job done. Has enough power for most tasks, and is fun to drive, but still gets good gas mileage. Can really get moving if you step on it, yet I have gotten 17 miles per gallon with it on the highway. Extended cab is nice for hauling extra people. Very reliable and always runs good. Always starts even when it's 20-30 below zero. 4 wheel drive works well, just takes a minute or two to engage. Parts are easy and affordable to buy. I am sure this truck will easily last another 10-20 years.

great work truck and very reliable, easy to find parts for and easy to work on, and a great truck to use in the mud and snow

Cons

old

Great Truck!!!!!!! — Its a great truck. 4WD works great. It has a lot of nice features like a push bumper with off-road lights, clearance lights in the front an back. a Good gull wing tool box with dual CB whips. and great mud tires A little rust, and minor dents and scratches. Yet the engine was overhauled so it has little miles on the engine, it has a new frame, and everything is really solid, its just old. A good radio with Aux ports. A cobra Cb radio. Camo interior, just the seat is ripped and since it is a single cab it makes for troubles when carrying things that need to be inside the cab.

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

A little skittish on dirt roads.

Great Truck! — It served me well for 14 years and then I passed it on to my son. It was a little under-powered, and was sometimes hard to park or make tight turns due to the extended cab. In every other respect it was very dependable and a good truck.

Can't Beat An Older Body-style Chevy — Can't get much better than this. Parts for these older body-style Chevy's are easy to come by and fixing them usually isn't much of a hassle. This truck has hauled and towed everything under the sun BEFORE the motor and tranny swap without a problem. Always fun trucks to drive and not much to be concerned about safety wise, anything besides a semi hits this and they're gonna be feelin' it. Great performance on gravel, dirt, and in mud. Plenty of room in the bed for hauling wood or three-wheelers. Gas mileage is the only thing left to be desired, luckily it's a stick shift.

Pros

It's a solid, durable truck

Cons

Gas milage

Like A Rock — It accelerates alright for a 20 year old truck, but it won't stop on a dime. It functions well, everything works on it like it's supposed to. If it weren't for the rust, it would be a great looking truck, but it's still not bad looking. I average about 11-13 mpg, so it's usually a weekly trip to the gas station.

N/a — had to have the engine replaced due to a cracked block caused by the water in it freezing and expanding. put one in ti out of a 95 tahoe. rocker bolts kept backing out so had to put the old heads on it, had trouble getting the timing right. motor still runs a little weak, and trans loses fluid likes its the coolest thing in the world. no cats running into a glasspack that dumps under the cab. just a project thats far from complete

Simply Amazing, If You Can, Get One — Bought this as my winter beater and I couldnt believe how much I fell in love with this truck. It was amazing, had awesome power and the different exhaust I put on it sounded awesome. Took it through many 3 foot high snow drifts and the bloody thing never got stuck. Parts.....ha...wow, you can easily afford to keep this thing on the road and they were so easy to replace, great truck to work on.

Pros

Fun to drive, relatively in-expensive to drive. Just transportation to avoid puttting miles on my Cadillac.

Cons

Short bed, not enough room to move a large couch. V-6 gas eater.

It's Okay Nothing Fancy. — I bought the truck used, and it seems to be okay, so far. It gets fairly good gas mileage considering it's a V-6 pushing a fairly big body. I have only replaced the windshield wipers, changed the oil and filter, and fuel filter,and battery since purchasing it and tuning it up, it was running pretty bad before I done this. It currently has 257,000 miles on it and runs great.
