Love My Truck — I love my truck! It has stood up well to the test of time and mileage that has been put on her. It would have been nice to have 4 doors and 4 wheel drive but overall still a good truck.

Great Truck — I love this truck works well. I enjoy driving it has a great stance only down side is that it has more power then the weight that it can handle. I lifted mine with a 2'' leveling which was a tremendous help with clearance

Keeper — I bought with 10,000 miles and now have 135,000, 1 set of brakes and 1 tune up,1fanbelt,2 batteries, 3rd set of tires and 14 years.... cheap operation during those years.... I would love to have a new vehicle(truck) but just can't justify cost vs operations delivered. In other words I'm not done wearing this one out and a new one won't do anything the old won't do!

Awesome Truck — In majority only the size, I`m a small person, and is a bit large for my taste, other then that nothing to say about it. No major issues whatsoever I had it regularly maintained, Is a truck if you take care of it he will take care of you. A++++++

Nice Truck! — It's my farm truck, it takes a licking and keeps on trucking... I use it to haul a 16' trailer with a 7,000 Bobcat and it works great for that. Wish it had a long box, didn't realize that until after I bought it...oops! But hey, I paid $4k for it, whaddya expect?

Very Nice To Be An Older Model Truck — I like the power in the 5.3 engine, and it was kept up over the years. Handling is very good although the turn radius isn't as good as I have seen. It accelerates nicely and runs like a brand new Chevy.

Great Truck! — Great truck with plenty of power out of the 5.3 L. I changed the appearance with a 3in body lift, 17' KMC wheels and 33x12.5 cooper tires. I have much more to add but for now I have the major points covered. Great overall truck. I love my truck and would recommend a chevy to anyone.
