Great Truck — Great truck. Works perfect for the business. very fast when needed, and not too bad on gas. Has a large tank so only need to fill up once a week. The body is in great shape, and no mechanical/electrical problems. Its lifted with a 6 in. rough country suspension lift, and has 33 in. tires

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Awesome Built Truck — Chevrolet trucks are well built trucks that are sometimes hard to get the right truck due to they sell as quick as they are put on a lot. Power is great for the 5.7 350 V-8 have always liked them.

gas mileage

Good Truck — good truck all around, for a truck it was pretty fast, the interior was perfect, the exterior had some wear and tear, but normal for a ten year old truck, fun to drive, gas mileage was not the best in the world

Reliable, well built, and a great work truck

Cons

1998 Chevrolet C1500 W/t — This is my grandfather's RCSB C1500 (i.e., 2WD) W/T with the L35 Vortec 4300. He bought it secondhand out of a lease when it was six months old and has owned it since. Compared to my K1500 Cheyenne, it definitely feels more responsive, agile, and easy to drive due to it having a two foot shorter wheelbase. It feels like it gets up and goes just as easily as my truck, too, since it lacks the weight of 4WD system and extended cab. It's quite basic (power nothing, vinyl floor, but does have the 4L60-E automatic), which is the way a true work truck should be. All my truck has on it is cruise control and carpet, though! To my knowledge it's never had any major work done, which is no surprise. Hopefully we'll still have this truck around for years to come!

1998 Chevy C1500 — Performance- hauls ass, sounds good when accelerating and when it's started cold Build Quality – has needed repairs, tranny went at 200,000kms (perfectly normal), fan belt squeaks sometimes, makes a clunking noise when the brake is let off Appearance –no rust, get good comments on the appearance, many scratches in the paint, and it shows lots of dirt, i wouldn't say the interior is the best, and it gets very hot from the sun, but the seats are comfy Cost of Ownership – gets about 20mpg Fun Factor – well, since its a truck, i wouldn't know what to say i'd recommend this truck to someone that needs a reliable, solid, economical truck....makes a very good work truck

Fun And Drives Like A Dream, Full Size Pick Up And Gets Over 20 Mpg!! — I wish it had power windows and locks but that is just me being lazy and having to lean over and unlock the door every so often again not the trucks fault and not a reason not to pick one of these up if you need a long bed to haul atv, motorcycle or anything

Chevrolet 400ss — Really nice ride, fast, excellent handling. Love the exterior appearance and the looks inside are amazing. The gas mileage is really low, but that's what you get when you have a 5.7L v8 under the hood. And it's really fun to drive.
