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.)

Money Pitt — i like the color and that its a extended cab, the body has almost no rust but it is a older truck so i know it will need some tlc, other than that it is one of the worst trucks i have ever had.

Great — This 1994 gmc sierra sle is a good first truck to have because it is very reliable with a smaller engine, a v6 instead of a big v8. ALso i like the magneflow exhaust system, dual straight pipes that make my truck look and sound great. Overall a good little truck.

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)

It's got plenty of room in the cab and it rides smooth.

Cons

Right now, just the gas tank.

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!

Love It — this truck came stock with a 5L, 305ci, V8 which had a decent amount of power but left me wanting more. It also has the 4L60 automatic tansmission. i have no complaints about the gas milage or quality, my truck currently has 390,000 kms on it and still going strong, altough the trans was replaced at 320,000 and te engine was swapped for a 5.7L, 350ci, at 377,000. my trck still gets around 500 kms to a tank in the city, and am currently in the process of restoring the vehicle as well as upgrading small things here and there.
