Pros

Its a showtruck

Cons

A dent on the hood where I ran into a bird

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.

Pros

Solid ride, no wind noise in cab

Cons

none to speak of..

25

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.

Pros

aggressive and dutiful

Cons

the price of gas needs to go down now!!!

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.
