Pros

Can go almost anywhere if I have the traction or clearance.

Cons

Likes to break a lot, engine rattles but probably due to the 362,000 miles that are currently on it.

Broken Often — Again for me being tall and it being a truck It is quiet roomy, with bigger tires underneath it, its more intimidating up where I live. Not many people have these wide of tires on there truck, and not many will go play without worrying if there going to get dirty. I mainly use this truck for mudding and pulling anyone else that is stuck. Since this vehicle is not built for on road use I cant tell you how your daily driver would compare.

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

I Love This Truck! — Found it with 140,000. Well maintained. It has the exact engine and feel of a truck that is meant to be cared for by the owner. You can find everything, and can usually locate any issues just by feeling it out or listening to the idle. It's a truck built the way all should be. If you love trucks, and can appreciate turning a wretch now and then, it's a great purchase. I hope to drive this one for another 150,000. (5.7 TBI)

Sexy — This truck is my baby... still has a stock 350 TBI... just under 220K now... I added MSD wires, cap, rotor, and coil and Bosch +4 platinums... very plain... power nothing, took the A/C out of it, tilt, cruise... so much fun to drive... Gas prices may be going up but i'm still getting a solid 13-18 MPG... ha ha

Best Truck Ever! — This is the best truck I've driven. It's got plenty of power for towing and hauling, It looks great inside and out, and it's really fun to drive. It's got a large gas tank, so filling up might empty your wallet!

I Dont Know What This Is — Its my truck! its a '94 and the interior looks like its been redone but it hasnt been. It performs very well. You can tell by driving it...its a little old. Just a tune up on a few thing every now and then and its just fine! It will be ready to go any time. I love to drive it, some times i feel like i abuse it. But its a a GM make...it'll be fine!
