Runs Forever — I bought this in 1994 with 110k on it. I've put almost another 100k on it and haven't had to do much beside normal maintenance. And a couple stock manifold header replacements. Put on a flowmaster catback exhaust - sounds good when you put your foot in it. Strong and reliable reliable 350cc V8 motor. This is my construction work truck.

Pros

it's a truck with the best engine ever in it

Cons

gas mileage

4 Wheel Drive — the performance on this truck will soon be tweaked a little :) i need new brakes and have for awhile and it handles fairly well except i need a new sway bar bushings (i blame mudding for that) this thing wil go through alot of mud with A/Ts and i mean ALOT (but what do expect from a GMC) It hasn't fallen apart yet and squeaks usaully start appearing when you have a system in the car Gas mileage sucks but what do you expect from a v-8. only major repair was the ignition module (easy fix though) and its a truck with 4 wheel drive so mudding is fun

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

Pros

Because it is a bulletproof GM truck from the best truck plant, Oshawa!

Cons

Avoid it if you are a tree hugging, fuel sipping, hippy who likes to leave a small "foot print" on the environment, cause let's face it, this thing leaves more than a footprint, it leaves a crater!

I Am Always Happy When I Get In This Truck And Start It, And It Has Never Failed Me Yet! — Because this is a heavy full size pickup, it has bad braking, leans excessively in the corners, and accelerates sluggish. But, thtat will all be fixed next year. Build Quality is second to none, operating cost is high, as with any GM full size from 88-98, but as long as you can live with the quirks of an older pickup, this is the best option for the money, don't even think about touching Dodge(wiring goes bad, rusts out, bad transmissions) or Ford (wiring fires, rots out in no time, breaks down) when looking for a older pickup!

Rebuilt Gmc — It's a great farm truck that is perfect for towing horses, materials, and other equipment. Lots of tork and towing power. The simplicity of this truck makes driving it easy for anyone. Great first truck or farm truck for hobby or bigger farms.

Gmc Sierra 4.3 — Love my truck. It's usefullness and reliabilty. Looks agressive and real easy to work on/service. Room in the back with the 8ft bed for anything I need to haul. Have driven throughout the US with her and knock on wood never let me down.

An Ideal Truck — Performance is what you'd expect from the rock solid 350 V8, pure power. Truck is solid as a brick wall and the body had held well over 19 years, including the last 15 as a southern Illinois farm truck. Maintenance is low, just regular maintenace, and a set of tires. Truck is a blast to drive, has custom dual exhuast with chrome tips, sounds awesome.
