Pros

Pulling trees out by the roots, the look on the guy's face in the new silverado after i lay the smack down on him.

Cons

gas mileage

One Badass Pickup — I love my truck! It has over 230K miles on it and runs great. Original motor and trans! Very dependable and rugged. Bed is very beat up from previous owner. This truck has a 360 C.I. engine (5.9L) and is a beast. It is equipped with MSD ignition, CAI and Flowmaster muffler (LOUD). Regularly tows 5k pound boat trailer and much more. Loves to eat gas! 12-13 MPG. This truck is very versatile being a pickup, but it also seats up to 6 people. Very fun truck and as a side-note it has been stolen and used in a robbery in the past.

Great Truck, Worth The Money. — It is a great truck, Yes it has a small v6 for a truck but it has plenty of power and gets good mpg. It has been very reliable. It did have the torque converter go bad 2 years ago but that was the only major problem it has had.

Pros

Great truck.

Cons

gas mileage, but its a truck so i knew that going into it.

Great First Car — Love it, gas mileage could be better, but with a V8 you cant expect much. with that being said, my ex had a camry 4cyl, and my truck was our road trip car. we fit all of our stuff plus our two small dogs (and dog car seats) in the back seat with plenty of room in the front for her to stretch out and relax while i drove. there are a few comon problems, plenum gasket, transmission (although i havent had any problems with it yet). drivers side seat springs break (not bad though just makes the seat like a bucket seat). definately a fun truck to drive. I upgraded the brakes when i got the big tires. I actually talked a friend into getting a 4X4 st, he then moved to alaska and said he was glad to have the truck.

Pros

it can go through ALOT

Cons

it gets terrible gas mileage

75

Huh? — it accelerates really well, very smooth gear shifts. It doesnt lack power and the four wheel drive works well the exterior is holding up well other than a little rust under the fender wells. it gets roughly twelve miles a gallon

Gas Sucks Haha — It's an all around good truck. All seasons, all the time. Only 15 MPG tho haha...Fun as hell to drive though. I would recommend it to anyone who likes to drive a truck and wants to get a little puch behind em.

Truck — I love my truck. Ive put a good hundred hours of work into it, inside and out. Gas mileage is ok, if i drive normal but i speed. Even though its only 2wd, ive taken it offroad and gotten stuck in 3 foot deep hole. The door scraped the ground as i got out (couldnt see the hole by the way). Had a friend who came and literally jerked me out of the hole. Not a scratch on my truck.
