Fun — This truck has been great. I have had it nearly 20 years now and only use it in the summer. It is becoming a bit of a collectors item as the rest on this generation of trucks is wearing out.

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

Eh, Its Ok — Dont like how much it costs me to drive it. Goes through brakes like crazy. After I hit 150k miles it started to cost more than my payment every month. I would not recommend anyone buy a Chevy truck from the late 90`s.

I Love It!! — This V8 makes the miles per gallon a little more expensive but Its cheaper to ensure a month so it evened out.. I bought this truck as a work truck but is a great family vehicle as well with plenty of room. I cant compare with other trucks because this is my first but I absolutely love it!!

Pros

4x4 drive line is virtually un-killable. for the average joe. 350 v-8 is a very well powered well mannered engine with relatively good fuel economy. manual t-case easy to work on

Cons

bad braking concept. rear end tends to lock first in winter driving. hard time to bleed back brakes. 4L60-e tranny common problems are wearing out the 3-4 clutch packs.
bad for pitman and idler arms going.

A Great Truck For The Average Bush Bogging Person. Or To Go Out To Camp With. — i like the 4x4 system and offroad capability. fuel economy aslong as everything is in tune. i don't like the 4L60-E tranny or the weight of the truck. wish it came with manual locking hubs and a straight axle front differential but the stock driveline is a pretty tuff one.

I Had 4 C/k's Now And I Jus Havta Have My Truck.. — with the c/k body style fuel injection was primative til the vortecs in 96 and a weak 700r4 for the transmission. the IFS is smooth but expensive to work on as im finding out after a accedent in oct 09.. the trucks are fun to cusomize and the ext cab platform is a prime choice for lifting or lowering and still get a sound system in the back seat like i did with 2 12" subs and a kenwood amp

Pros

It's fast, fun to drive, and it can pull anything I need to.

Cons

Although it seats three, if someone sits in the middle they sometimes get in the way of shifting and bump the shifter.

If You Need A Pickup, Buy A Chevy. — This truck has great power and is good for hauling. I sometimes haul project cars and have taken friends race cars to the track in the past and this is the perfect truck for me. It accelerates quickly, handles great, and stops pretty quick too. The only thing I would complain about is that the rocker panels and cab corners tend to rust out on these trucks. The gas mileage is alright for a truck, about 16 mpg. It is a lot of fun to drive and I would highly recommend this truck to anyone looking for a good reliable pickup.

Dependable Truck — This is a great vehicle. I have owned it for for over 10 years and it has performed flawlessly. Towing boats, hauling material, or going on a trip. It is always reliable and ready to go. It is the kind of truck that you can depend on for doing whatever job needs to be done.

Pros

Having a 3/4 ton with 6 lug axle shafts makes this truck special. I got a 3/4 ton with a Z-71 off road package

Cons

Automatic transmission

Unlike Any Other — This chevy has never let me down. always ready to play or work hauling hay, or equipment. I couldn't ask for a better truck unless this one had a manual transmission.
