Big Blue — My old truck has been so good to me and my family. I've taken this truck on many long road trips and back country trails. She has taken us every where I've wanted to go. I've done many 4 wheeling trips with my buddies in the rock crawlers and I have to say she has been great for those types of outing. I've slept many a night in the bed looking up at the stars way out in the dessert.

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

It Was A Good Truck Overall — my very first truck. needed new shocks/brakes/and tie rods. had a V6 with ok power. towing wasn't too great but snow/ice/rain/mud/sleet was nothing to it with the all terrain tires and 4x4. it was a great first truck.

Best Truck I Ever Owned! — I liked having a full back seat, but wished the doors opened the other direction. It was difficult for passengers to enter or exit truck in tight parking spaces. I loved how smooth the truck rode and how comfortable the seats were.

Pros

I think its awesome I wouldn't trade it for nun imma keep it untell I die and pay for a plot beside me and my fam for it to be barried.. its has always been there when I needed it and has only broke down when I didn't.. if you want the style and raw horsepower in a truck then go get one and you will see that's chevys don't play thay get the job done

Cons

The tranny

2001 Chevy Siverados Are The Way To Go — This is honestly a good truck all except the tranny the 4L60E does not las as long as it should other then that its a good hard working truck it has the style without the lack of horse power the 327 vortex V8 will last as long as you take care of it... And coming from me what I have put this two wheel drive threw it shouldn't be running but its still strong it was and still is ahead of its time

Better Than A Ford — comfort, power, dependability. Bought it used with 68K it now has 188K and is as strong as ever. I am not picky on appearance, I want it to work when I need it. This truck is good looking and dependable

Excellent, Runs Great With 200k Miles — extended cab is great, I got the LT model, heated leather seats are great. Z71 off road 4x4 great in the snow, I could not get stuck in 3 foot drifts from a complete stop. best truck I've owned. period
