Cammed 1500 — I love the paint job and the built Vortec 350 and it is very fun to drive. Lots of power to pull or to haul a load. Gas mileage use to be great for a V8 until cam and head upgrade.

Worst Thing In The World — This truck has been a curse since bought owned for 4 years and have only put 9000km on it, leave it for a day or two and it breaks, drive it around it breaks, it also has the experimental transmission that GM thought would be a break though technology in it and that went within the first 6 months of owning it and cost 4000 to replace, Go near the thing and i swear it automatically breaks

1998 Gmc K1500 — This GMC has been a good solid truck. It was purchased with 142,000 miles and now has over 182,000. We've had no problems with the engine or drivetrain. It uses about a quart of oil between changes, but the Vortec V8 keeps going strong. The ride is still very comfortable, the cab is quiet - no wind noise. Overall, this is a great vehicle and highly recommended.

Sierra — Not much to say about it... it's a truck. I like the look and styling... brutish. It's black with the 5.7 L engine. It has some power, but it's still a truck. Except for the gas it's pretty inexpensive and easy to work on.

Lukes Truck Reveiw — My truck gets up and goes just as fast if not faster than any other truck on the road even if it is the new and improved model. right now i guess it doesnt to so well with the gas prices going up im only getting about 13 mpg with it or $.25 to a mile for you that are wondering. The four wheel drive works great i have the push button option but sometimes its hard to tell whether or not it switched back to two wheel drive or not. I have had it a couple times driving on dry pavement with it on o well.
