1994 Chev K1500 — Fuel Mileage could be better, but it will tow anything i've ever tried. 383 000km on it and counting. Powertrain has been very solid. body is starting to finally show its age a little. it is after all a 15 year old truck already. Would definately buy another one just like it

Best Chevy Truck Made — It's a Z71. It's an excellent truck, even with 208K miles on it. The only thing wrong with it at the moment is the rust on the hood, below the doors and in the bed. Performance- acceleration is great for a 1/2 ton, braking is good, handling is great Build Quality- excellent, it's needed a few repairs over the years, but i'm glad to keep it running well. Appearance- interior is nice, not in perfect condition, but still ok, exterior is the best body style Chevy has done, mine has rust in places Cost of Ownership- mileage is about 15-16MPG, not super, but if you want something with balls, that's what you get. maintenance is normal for a vehicle with 200K+ miles on it Fun Factor- very fun to drive if you like trucks. with a little lift and some nice tires it's a beast.

Pros

engine is almost unbreakable

Cons

transmission is kinda weak but not bad

35

Works Great Just Dont Beat On It To Hard — fuel injection system is kinda dissapointing, other than that motor is amazing, 4wd takes some time to engage due to a temp sensor in the front axle but a 100 part will fix that, other than that this truck is amazing, its been through hell and back offroad and has come back asking for more

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

Haul everything, never worry about the engine

Cons

Bring a lot of cash for gas and incase the tranny goes

Haul Anything And Everything You Want To And Do It Until It Rusts Away — Awesome vehicle, I can haul and tow anything I want to and I've got over 235k miles on it now. No complaints, original engine, 3rd transmission. Transmissions are VERY costly and don't seem to last too long, that's the biggest gripe. That and the 14MPG.

Pros

The 5 speed, and decent amount of power

Cons

Wish it was extended cab and 4 wheel drive

Decent Work Truck — Its a pretty good truck. It has 239,000 miles on it, but it still runs just fine. I have to get new tires on it though, but that shouldn't be too bad. It doesn't have a radio in it right now, but I can deal without one. It has the 4.3L V6 and a 5 speed manual transmission. I would rather have the manual because automatics are just boring and it makes it more fun to drive with a manual. Plus its easier to tow with a manual in my opinion. (EDIT): Just added a 1" throttle body spacer and it gets better fuel economy and a slight power increase.

Get It. — This truck is a beast. If you want a reliable vehicle get a chevrolet. It has no balls because it's a v6 but it gets decent gas mileage. One day they will make this truck again. Do recommend. It is painted as so one can not see the rust.

Pros

350 in it is a perfect match for this truck and me.

Cons

the one down side to this sucker is parking for it on busy streets.

Beats Everything Out There That Is The Same Age As This Truck — this truck has balls to it. it is a well made good ol' american machine. needs some fixing up, but the majorty of it runs like new. deffenetly makes the guys in bmw's and mercadi really run for their money to beat me off the line.

Cons

Worth It. — Gets from A to B, despite any road conditions. Needs typical rust work on the fenders, quarters, and rocker panels. Sounds decent, not too loud (like half the chevys in town- get a muffler). Dual exhaust-2 racing mufflers, Rockford Fosgate sound system, 3" Rough Country full suspension lift, Nitto snow/mud tires. Fun to drive!!! Just expensive... Overall, a great vehicle for work, and play..

Good Running — good running, a bit rusty now, but not bad on fuel with the 5.0L engine and the O/D tranny. I call him "Chet". "Chet" is fun to drive and hes beena good 'workhorse' for me for the past 2+ years. I bought him well used sitting in the back of a dealers lot in the brush. He fired right up and I brought him home.
